~ intoxicating inspiration


In preparation for celebrating the start of a new year, an intoxicating post meant to inspire…

Whether filled with drinks and desserts or books and accessories, a bar cart serves up a festive vibe, enhancing a cheerful gathering.









The Gilded Stag makes a great bar cart in a variety of colorful options...

Love it in yellow…

Orange is awesome too...
















If you're in the market, here are a few options with links:






And my favorite, The Gilded Stag


Hoping your holidays are filled with spirited fun, family and friends…

Cheers!

~ 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.

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