With New Year’s Eve approaching, my mind naturally dives straight into a big glass of champagne. A coupe, actually. That’s my preferred vessel for drinking champagne. I fully believe that in the coupe’s saucer-shape the tiny bubbles are more free to tickle your nose and, of course, that helps put stars in your eyes.
Since I’ve been setting up our dining room in the new house, I’ve been thinking that it would be fun to cull a collection of lovely glassware over the years. We have a couple pretty blown glass flutes from our wedding and some cheap glass coupes, but I’ve been daydreaming about getting a fancy crystal champagne coupe or two once all our money stops having to go towards plumbing. The idea of growing a little collection to use for special occasions makes me happy. I’ve put some of my glassware picks together above!
And Champagne it is — that is my favorite sparkling wine with Crémant being a close second. Other sparkling wines can be great too, but I always think these taste best. Add a splash of St. Germain (elderflower liqueur) or Canton (ginger liqueur) and I am over the moon. Drop some beautiful lavender bitters onto a sugar cube and plunk it into a coupe or a flute for some festive and delicious aromatherapy.
Because I love Champagne so much, I believe in the truth in labeling movement — working to properly label wine, cheese and more. Example: Champagne only comes from Champagne — the NE province in France. Prosecco is not Champagne — it’s sparkling wine, but not Champagne. I recommend reading more about it — it’s important and inspiring.

I love these beautiful Frances Caine pieces that they have at TENOVERSIX right now. I love the proportions and cute collars on the indigo denim and linen jumpsuits. The silky dresses look like a dream — I especially enjoy the buttons and double placket on the One Silk Dress in both black and white silk. These pieces by Los Angeles-based designers Travis Caine and Katherine Kin are so thoughtful and versatile. More HERE.
