Thank you, Luigi Bormioli for sponsoring this post and allowing me to share your beautiful stemware with my readers.
Have you noticed spring fever is hitting hard everywhere?
It’s all over Instagram and Pinterest right now.
The pretty little spring vignettes, the home decor…
Spring is everywhere except here in Alaska.
Despite the piles of snow here in Narnia, the spring fever bug bit me too!
Today it’s all about this gorgeous early spring tablescape,
sleek crystal stemware, and mixing old with new on the table.
The star of the show here just might be the centerpiece.
A mixture of white and green hydrangeas with lilies reflecting
the hues of the pale pink and purple roses
along with fresh babies breath are bright and cheerful.
Nothing welcomes spring like fresh flowers.
On each side of the centerpiece are fresh artichokes,
a few more blush roses nestled into some older pieces of white stoneware
and round textural spheres to add a little more visual interest.
But maybe the vintage China with those darling
little butterflies and delicate wildflower patterns is the star of the show?
What do you think?
How about this gorgeous crystal stemware, though?
Talk about a classic and timeless design.
This hits the mark!
For several years, I’ve been on the hunt for
reasonably priced elegant stemware with clean lines….
Something that compliments hand-painted floral patterns rather than competing with them.
The timeless design of Luigi Bormioli glassware is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
The simplicity and sleek design pairs nicely
with patterned dishes and other fun textural elements.
The prosecco glass is my favorite one.
I might have gone a little crazy with photographs of this one.
Mad crushing right now!
Everything from the shape and style, to how the light reflects
and how the glass magnifies the elements behind it is attractive.
Are you starting to get a little crush too?
If you’re in a rush to get a few sets of stemware for yourself
or are thinking ahead to Mothers Day gifts…..

Did you know that we have the Italians to thank for clear glass?
It’s called Cristallo.
I studied this very subject when I was in college for architecture and design.
Fascinating history for sure!
The Italians are an innately talented culture; master glassmakers, wine, pasta, artisan bread.
This post was compensated but all opinions are my own like the obsessive photos of the champagne flute that I have a major crush on!
