How to pick the right stemware for an event is tricky because you want to make an impression but also not go over the top. I like to stick with the classics but my trick is to shine them up. I make sure that ever glass I use for a party is glimmering and for some reason that really sets the tone.
I also like to use various glasses to act almost like part of the presentation for some treats around the house. Using proper glassware with a bight color really get attention. I have in the past used rock candy with some really nice glasses that everyone seemed to love. Also with the proper cocktail certain candy goes hand and hand.
But at the end of the day keep it fun and keep it classy always is a great way to be. I stick with the standards because if it is not broke why try and fix it? I hope everyone is having a splendid holiday start and here is mud in your eye.
