Getting ready for a party

Carnival glass is one of those things that’s so bad it’s good. More often than not, the pieces are tacky as all get out. They’re kept around the house either out of nostalgia or because you’ve a fascination with baroque, overdone vintage.  My candy dish has survived Goodwill because it reminds me off all the pieces my grandmothers owned. I’ve never found a single use for it until this week. I’m hosting a pumpkin carving party Saturday and I think this assemblage will look very fine indeed on the buffet. The iridescent amber is just right for fall, and while the shape is too awkward for many uses, it holds caramel apple lollipops perfectly.
