What is it about mercury glass that’s so darned romantic? There’s something in the way it glints and glows, and it’s so versatile—equally at home now (it mimics the warmth of a September night) as it might be on an evening in mid-December (imagine the flickering candlelight next to sprigs of holly and pine). Going with a rustic fall theme? It will add some sparkle to all that reclaimed wood. Prefer a fancier affair? It also pairs well with ribbons and lace.
We scoured Pinterest and picked out a few lovely takes on this timeless—and seasonless—tabletop accessory, available at all price points, from vintage to West Elm to DIY lookalikes.
