The Flute Theory

 

Have you ever set a formal table with champagne flutes?  Neither have I.  For the most part, I use them as a pair with my hubby, or in large groups of friends standing at a cocktail party.  So, why buy eight of the same style when you can buy four pairs in different styles?  You could buy only one of a kind, but I have found that couples tend to choose the same pair and don’t mind if they get each others mixed up. Besides, it’s classier than those wine glass charms.  

I started doing this accidently, when I received a beautiful pair as a gift from friends when I first moved to CA.  By the time I left CA, I had made it my style to purchase two sets of flutes to commemorate an occasion,  giving one set to the commemoratee, and keeping one set for myself as a commemoration.  

Not to mention how much fun you can have shopping tag sales, antique shops, and consignment stores, which is where I have found the most interesting ones.  Here is the Fall lineup.  (Yes, of course I have them for different seasons, doesn't everyone?)
