Blenko's Colorful and Unusual Glass Pitchers

With summertime coming around the corner I am trying to find some awesome pitchers for my parties! One of my favorite companies is Blenko. This company has been around forever over a hundred years to be exact. The quality of glass is superb.The colors of these Blenko's glass pitchers are amazing! Not only are the colors just amazing the shapes are funky and cool. Come check out Blenko Glass Pitchers I found on Etsy!

This Blenko Blue Glass Pitcher screams pool time to me! I would so love to make Mojitos in this cool pitcher while hanging out with some friends by the pool. I love the color as well.

I was so excited to find this Antique Blenko Pitcher with Hobnail Detail. I know it's crazy, but I think having two spouts is super awesome! I feel awkward sometimes when I turn the whole pitcher around so I can find the handle and the knob. Also, the texture is really interesting.

What a groovy pitcher. This Blenko Green Glass Decanter has an awesome design and gorgeous color. Can you imagine serving limeade with this decanter? I think it would be a perfect for a hot summer day.

I am imagining storing my flowers in this Turquoise Blue Blenko Pitcher. I like it, but it definitely feels like it could be used to store my bouquets. It reminds me of the Mediterranean with it's beautiful blue color.

Imagine serving lemonade or frosty Whisky Sours out of this vintage Blenko Jonquil pitcher! It has crackle glass and dates from the late 1950s.

I know that this would be a great pitcher to bring to a beach party. This Vintage Blue Blenko Crackle Pitcher reminds me of how light hits the ocean. It's just stunning!

Do you need some colorful pitchers in your life? I sure do! Not only are they vintage, groovy, and unique, but they are high quality. Take a look at more Blenko glass pitchers on Etsy! What was your reaction when you saw these pitchers? Tell me about it down below!

My Five Current Favorite Vintage Green Cake Stands on Etsy

I recently got my kitchen mess all under control, which means I can bake again! Since I love hosting parties, having a cake stand is absolutely necessary. There are some spectacular retro cake stands that I really want to show you guys! Take a look at my five favorite vintage green cake stands on Etsy.

This Art Deco Green Bagley Cake Stand is gorgeous. It's very tall and would be such a showstopper at a party! The design is just beautiful. It reminds me of a mermaid tail, which would be kind of cool to use for summertime.

Since I know I'm having a ton of parties outdoors this summer, this mid-century green cake stand would be so useful. Not only is this awesome for cakes, but it can be used for cheeses, appetizers, and main courses.

What a rad vintage chartreuse cake stand! I love the design on the glass top. It kind of looks Celtic. I think it's a little hilarious that the green part of the stand looks like an upside down glass. It gives it a funky feel, but not in a bad way.

I needed to add a little elegance into this list, so I found this stunning antique English bone china cake stand. I could use this for a tea party for Mother's day or summertime. It's smaller, so it would be great for little sandwiches or cupcakes. I love the gold leaves that rim the plate.

So, I don't actually like the color of this rare green cake plate stand. It's not my favorite shade, but I can deal with it since I am in love with the depressions! The vines are very pretty and suited for the season. I don't know if it's just me, but the stand looks a little asymmetrical. It doesn't bother me though! I can see it working really well for a large get-together. Each tier could be something different, like a dessert or appetizer sampler.

There are many different designs and kinds of vintage green cake stands on Etsy. They range from late 1800's to the 1980's. Take a look and you may find something in your particular taste! Is there anything on my list that you like? Let me know down below!

Vintage Scandinavian Design Teapots by Kaj Franck

Since I'm famous for being a tea-obsessed lady, I have an itch to find some vintage teapots. Kaj Franck is well known for his ceramic work. Lots of the items are typically very simple, but he also did a few Arabic designs.

These are some of my favorite teapots. They are just gorgeous!

Typically, I do not like roses, but I can picture using this Floral Enamel Kettle Teapot. It's great for this time of year and is incredibly elegant. The artistic style of the flowers is just glorious.

To me, this mid century yellow floral teapot just screams summertime! The fresh and bright green leafy designs really liven up this ceramic teapot. I prefer this shade of yellow over a true yellow. It just brings a bit of happiness to it!

This Kaj Franck kettle has the best of both worlds. The art of the rose is very pretty and I love teal! The design that envelops the bottom of the teapot is really cool! You can just tell it is from Finland. This is clearly similar to a Finnish textile design.

If you're an earthy person, this Arabia brown enamel kettle is a great option for you! I really like the spiral designs it has similarities to a henna tattoo. The quality of this vintage teapot looks almost brand new. That shine is unbelievable!

This Kaj Franck red teapot looks like a stunning blanket was imprinted on it. This design is so fun and definitely shows where it comes from culturally. This kettle is also in fabulous condition. I'm almost afraid of ruining it.

Take a look at other amazing Kaj Franck teapots on Etsy. These designs are unique. Check them out and let me know what you think of these vintage teapots!
