{Guest Post} 6 Pyrex Party Pieces



Hello again — it’s your friendly neighbourhood redhead back on the Dear Edna beat for another round of her annual 12 Days of Christmas countdown. This year, however, I’m leaving you to your own devices to figure what to wear to your Christmas parties, and instead I’m telling you about holiday Pyrex!

Over the past year or so, I have become completely obsessed with collecting vintage Pyrex pieces (I now have what it known as “Pyrexia”—don’t laugh; OK, laugh), and while my maniacal fandom has centred around hoarding the various patterns of a certain-sized bowl, my subsequent thrifting adventures into the world of vintage dishes have caused me to become completely and utterly delusional. I now buy items, Pyrex or not, that I think can be used at a dinner party. Uhhhh, WHAT dinner party? I have yet to host a single one. Yet I dream…with seasonal themes in mind. This month, it’s all about Christmas table settings with appropriately coloured plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, and serving dishes. It’s a sickness, people. Stay away from kitchen finery. That is, with the exception of these beauties…
