I saw these dishes in Walmart and thought they would make a very pretty Christmas table. Now, mind you, I have Christmas dishes at home but this is my weakness! I like setting a pretty table and Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year and I love to have all that Christmas decor out making the house look so pretty. I searched high and low for red goblets that would not cost a lot and finally hit the jackpot when I happened to find these in Macy's on sale. They were a little bit more than I wanted to pay but when I got them home, I realized I actually got a good bargain as they are Irish Crystal and not just pretty red glass.
