Gorgeous Glassware To Instantly Upgrade Your Summer Drinks
You don't need to be an at-home cocktail connoisseur to start serving up drinks in style. Whether you're sipping hand-crafted cocktails with dinner guests, enjoying your morning coffee to yourself, or simply waking up to a refreshing glass of water, having a beautiful glass in hand is one of those little things that can help create small, special moments throughout your day. And acquiring gorgeous glassware no longer requires a wedding registry. Hand-blown details, playful colors, and organic shapes are becoming increasingly popular and affordable, so it may only take a small investment to add a unique set to your kitchen cabinet (but we have a feeling you may want to leave most of these on display).
