~ christmas table 2013




Thank you Carolyne Roehm. Thank you for even more Aptware inspiration. These images are from her recent post on The Many Colors of Christmas. Obviously, blue and white are an expected pair of colors Carolyne would highlight. And she chose my favorite pieces for this table. The napkins, the Aptware, the glasses - I love it all!

As I have already reported, I have been on a wild goose chase looking for this Aptware. Being an openminded shopper, I was not bound to blue. Green or yellow would also be welcomed with open arms... 

As it turns out, green is my lucky color. Although there were only a few pieces available, they definitely made an impact on my table. And aren't they perfect for the holidays! (My mother will be especially overjoyed with the traditional red and green…)






Red roses in teacup arrangements on either side of the tureen are simple yet spirited.









Eucalyptus tucked in a knotted red ribbon tie up the napkins...


Again, thank you to Carolyne Roehm, for such reliable and consistent inspiration. Dinner recipes coming soon…

Merry Christmas Jan! Wish I could help with the finding of Aptware. Every piece, and we didnt have many, was stolen over the course of a couple years! The shop rarely has any theft. Can you believe it was the Apt that someone was after? And not happy until they got every piece - without paying!
Hope your day is happy and blessed! And may you find Aptware!
