If you are like me then you have a lot of glassware—I have sets from casual to formal, glass and crystal, and short to tall. I have it covered. I think of glassware almost like jewelry for my tabletop: many options, wonderfully interchangeable, and a great way to add style to the “basics” (think linens, flatware, place settings, etc.), or to make the formal more comfortable.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love the classic water goblet, but I find that lately I am setting my table using a not-so-traditional glass for water. From thin and elegant stem-less wine and champagne flutes, to rustic juice glasses, chunky stemware, and modern clean-lined highball glassware, the options are endless!
What I love even more is mixing up my water glasses each time I entertain. It helps to keep my tablescape looking new and fresh to returning guests. It also allows me to utilize what I already own, in different ways, thus being kind to my household budget (I know, I said the “B” word). And if you will excuse me, I have a crystal goblet of water waiting for me!
