Do you have any fun/fancy glasses? When I got married, we received all sorts of fun entertaining items, and a lot of them were glasses.
To be honest, we are lucky if we entertain people once a month these days.
Our two children are pretty entertaining though:-)
So, when I was growing up, for Thanksgiving it would be a big treat to get Welches Sparkling Grape Juice. When I was pregnant with my daughter I loved how drinking sparkling grape juice made me feel fancy.
Fast forward to today…I keep a cabinet stocked full of various Trader Joes Sparkling juices(blueberry, clementine, blood orange, apple, and pomegranate). They are 100% juice and 100% tasty!!!! Tonight we had Trader Joes Sparkling Blueberry Juice with our dinner as a fun Saturday night treat.
Well, when you have a fun treat, go big or go home, right?
We had decided a while ago that fun dishes are only fun if you actually use them. If they get broken in use, at least they were being used.
My daughter’s favorite glass is a small wine tasting glass that I had gotten years and years ago. It only holds about a 1/2 cup of liquid and it fits perfectly in her hand.
She was thrilled when we pulled out her special juice glass tonight. My son doesn’t get to use a fancy stem glass yet, only plastic stem glasses, but they feel and act so grown up when given the responsibility.
I could have just served our sparkling juice in regular glasses tonight, but why not make an ordinary meal have a fun twist. Especially if it only means having to wash one extra dish:-)
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort <3
