Tapioca Pudding in Glassware

All dressed up and someplace to go…

…your dining table for your guests’ enjoyment!

Plain vanilla tapioca pudding doesn’t have to go Plain Jane to serve your guests.

More on Vintage Mikasa Halo Dinnerware

Rebecca was kind enough to send photos of her vintage Mikasa china in the Halo pattern, as a follow up to my recent post about this vintage dinnerware in the Cerastone line.

(Sorry about the grainy quality. I had a snag with the download and had to go to Plan B.)

I’ve never seen this one in my travels, though I’ve seen many of the other Cerastone pattern, and lots of vintage Mikasa in general.
