Tip for Your Next Gathering

It doesn’t have to be expensive to ditch this…

For this…

So you are feeling a little down. You decide to brighten your spirits and have a few. You invite a few friends over and you bring out the…SOLO cups??? You have to act fancy to feel fancy to be fancy. I found that you don’t have to spend tons of money to invest in some nice glassware. Even when I have my kid’s birthday parties, I bring out glass for the adults. It makes everyone feel better and it’s more festive. If you have a huge party, you can get a great deal at places like Ikea.

Set of 6 for $4.99 at Ikea!

They also have champagne flutes and beer mugs! I remember drinking my smoothies out of wine glasses when I was pregnant with my first. I missed drinking soooo much!
And don’t worry about doing the dishes and the clean up! It’s all part of the fun of hosting your friends or family. Let’s hope they return the favor!

    I recently did just that! I went to Ikea and bought champagne fluts, wine glasses and glass cups. Some experts say that half the taste food/drinks come from its presentation. Not only does it look nice, it also eliminates plastic waste to hopefully be recycled. 😉

    I was smiling while reading this because my sisters are queens of the plastic cups during family parties. I despise it and truthfully think its tacky! But they love it because they don’t have to worry about extra dishes. I always put out glasses because I want my guests to feel glamorous for the evening 🙂
