If you love hosting and entertaining as much as we do, you’d agree it’s hard to fight the urge to buy all the new and improved housewares that grace the shelves with each new season change. While we have the desire to buy a new item for every dinner party we host, we’re remind ourselves the importance of everyday glassware and dinnerware, and the purpose they serve for the long run.

Selecting Everyday Glassware
As you’re selecting everyday glassware, take into account these questions:
1. Will this set match my everyday dinnerware?
2. How many guests do I typically serve at one time?
3. How durable is the glassware?
4. Are these easy to clean?
Finally, we suggest selecting a set of glassware in a variety of sizes. It’s always best to have a variety of sizes on hand to be prepared to serve all types of drinks: 4oz for Juice, 8oz for Water, 12oz for Soft Drinks, etc.
Glassware comes in a variety of colors, textures, sizes, and shapes. There’s nothing like a pop of color from a water glass to tie together a table design. While we want to encourage you to have fun with your collection and always be on the look out for interesting glassware, we also want you to keep in mind the keyword, “Everyday.” Our best suggestion is to select a set of clear glass for your everyday collection.
Everyday glassware does not need to be expensive and it certainly should not be an afterthought. One may believe, “Well, it’s just a cup,” when we fully believe a cup filled with ice at a place setting set just for you, is the perfect reminder you are loved.
To help you select the best everyday glassware for your home, we’ve rounded up our favorite pieces just for you!
