More often, families are adding bars to their houses. Because of the recession, people are spending more of their entertainment time inside their homes to save money. This has meant that more and more people have been needing to find interesting ways of completing their glass collections and personalized old fashioned glassware is often a preference.
Decor fashions are taking a lot of influence from the Twenties and Fifties, bringing a retro feeling into the home. This means that glasses are following suite, taking a more vintage route regarding style. On top of that, glasses are a large part of the overall presentation of a drink, truly influencing its taste.
To achieve a fully finished bar, one requires a complete collection of glasses. Because these are often placed in full sight, they become an important design feature in themselves and need to be attractive. A full collection consists of lowballs, highballs, champagne flutes, shot glasses, martini glasses, cocktail glasses, beer mugs, red and white wine glasses, brandy snifters and port glasses.
It’s important to acquire glasses that are of high quality. Having these etched turns them into good corporate and personal gifts. Logos, initials, names or messages may be used. Glasses make good promotional gifts as well, and having the corporate logo etched onto them makes them more personally significant.
They can be used as wedding favors too, and champagne flutes are best for this purpose. The bridal couple’s initials and a personal message can be used to make them more pertinent to the day they represent. Wedding favors are often the bane of guests because they frequently have no use, so they’re often placed at the back of a cupboard to be tossed away the following year.
Adding practicality to the gift makes it more appreciated. Personalized old fashioned glassware will give guests enjoyment for years. When it has a message etched onto it, personalized for each individual guest, it shows the bride and groom’s appreciation.
