The Story BehindToday we know this lovely drink as double espresso, hot milk & foam; yet it only became popular outside Italy in the 1930s, when it was served in cafes in Austria & Germany. The name is inspired by Capuchin friars due to the color of their red-brown robes, as well as their hoods (aka, little cappuccio ).
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds
A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance
Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish
I almost can't wait until next Christmas to put up the garlands in the kitchen that displays the Old World food and drink ornaments. This cappuccino ornament will be a reminder of all the cosy coffee houses in Seattle.
Old World Christmas
Hi Karen- What a fabulous way to display your food and drink ornaments, sounds beautiful. Coffee and Seattle, another perfect combination.
