Champagne flutes are probably the first glasses you think of when you want to drink a little bubbly. But if you want to rock a retro look like Daisy Buchanan, stock up on champagne coupe glasses. Known as the ballerina of cocktail glasses, with their delicate stems and wide, shallow bowls, they can do so much more than rock a champagne tower.
Coming in a range of prices and designs
, I've been looking to start my own collection, that wouldn't break the bank or my heart if I couldn't replace one (I'm talking to you, vintage sets!). Here are a few fabulous ideas for entertaining with them...
I discovered CB2's Marie Coupe Cocktail Glasses
on my first trip to their store in Vancouver, BC and fell in love! Not only are they très affordable but they look like their more expensive counterparts.
They are the perfect way to elevate a simple dessert of ice cream and macarons. Sidebar, a Ladurée House
is now in Vancouver; I stumbled across it on my way to CB2 and was too thrilled.
Serve another dessert like these chocolate dipped doughnuts featured on the knot
...or display a few macarons with Style Me Pretty
A gorgeous way to display greenery featured on Junebug Weddings
Since its wide bowl does not sustain carbonation as well as a flute does, a coupe is not ideal for serving dry wines but is perfect for pretty cocktails like these from Anthropologie
A swirl of cotton candy alone is perfection; turning it into a cocktail with Lauren Conrad
