The best dinner parties we've hosted are when I've forgotten to put water glasses on the table. Hydration, exclusively with beer and wine, seems to make for a good ol' night! I have no empirical evidence for this, pretty obvious though I think it is. (although I suppose our neighbour Claire falling asleep with her face in the pudding, on a non-water glass evening, could perhaps count as empirical evidence!)
Admittedly, we were much younger then and who cares about a hangover when you're young! Everything is about the night, without even a care for tomorrow. Nowadays, quite the reverse. I'm getting jumpy a few hours before the night has even started, concerned about the morning after the night before! 😱
For this reason, I reckon the humble water glass on every table is a lifeline. I can still enjoy my wine, whilst counter balancing with 'glugs' of H₂O (lots of getting up for the loo in the night, mind you, but that's another whole different benefit of age!)
So if, like me, you like your table water and, by chance, you're in the market for some rather lovely colourful drinking glasses (and they do finish a stylish table setting after all), then I'm your man!
Our Memento Bubble Glasses are perfectly sized as water glasses; they're robust (good for kids too) and, most importantly, 100% dishwasher safe!
