It may be too late for tonight but some extravagant new years eve party essentials for next year as put together by GalerieMagazine. All the big names featured here: Orrefors, Waterford, Christofle, Saint Louis, Lalique, plus the champagne and caviar to accompany. Sounds like a good plan! Perhaps a pricey plan! But a good plan for sure.
I have to laugh about Saint Louis crystal – it was a name unknown to me, then a couple of months ago there was cute Saint Louis lamp on a local auction site. The first bid at $15 lasted for days. Then 10 to 15 minutes before closing the bids started to rise and rise beyond $200. Seemingly I wasn’t the only one who’d done his research.
May the closeness of your loved ones, family, and friends fill your heart with joy!
