Yesterday I went to IKEA to look for the Applaro table for our deck. I have seen it on a couple of blogs and at $129 it seemed like an inexpensive experiment. Our current table is this one,
which is a vintage one from Hunt & Gather. It is cool and folds, which is great, it is however basically an old picnic table that is getting more and more warped and, despite twice a summer coats of polyeurthane, still leaves paint flakes all over our deck. The table was sold out, but I did pick up these glasses
Blue polka dots! We really don't need more glasses, but they are so cute. Earlier in the week I had been looking for these glasses, which are plastic versions of juice glasses we have from Anthropologie, World Market and Pier One. (seen in the table picture above) They are now currently available at Pottery Barn. The plastic ones were written up in Real Simple and are sold out. In the Real Simple weekly email, they were replaced with these from Cambria Cove, which are not as cute.
When I went to empty the dishwasher, one of the juice glasses was broken! And then I saw the Guest Decorator post from Grace Bonney of Design Sponge on Anthropologie. Seagrass striped wicker glasses. I have been tempted by those kind of sweet glasses everytime summer comes around. And these are aqua. Plus my birthday coupon from Anthro just arrived. It is a sign.
