The Best Drinkware to Ring in the New Year
Hosting a New Year’s Eve party? Use this guide to stock up on stylish drinkware before you toast!
Sparkle and Shine
New Year’s Eve is all about the sparkle. Confetti, streamers, glitter—you know the drill. For an ultraglam celebration, bring in some drinkware to match! Load up on flutes, shakers, and stems with silver, gold, and metallic finishing touches. Laser and crystal-cut glasses are also a stylish choice. They not only enhance the look of your average, run-of-the-mill stemware, but also reflect light to stunning effect.
Fun and Festive
Get playful with witty drinkware that speaks to the occasion. Glasses embellished with short phrases and timely decals are all fair game, so long as the color scheme (think black, silver, and gold.) and font remain tasteful. We especially love the timeless trend of handing out date-themed champagne flutes for guests to raise at midnight.
Timeless and Versatile
You can’t go wrong with a classic stemware set. Squeaky-clean glasses with flared pedestals make for an elegant New Year’s toast and can also be reused for other upcoming holidays. To add a bit of panache to a versatile collection (and help guests keep track of their glasses!), wrap each stem in a personalized wine charm.
Disposable drinkware is a great option if you’re throwing a last-minute party or sticking to a budget. We suggest a set of acrylic champagne stems. They’re affordable, shatterproof, and look just like the real thing! Stick-and-peel New Year’s–themed bottle labels, along with single-use tablecloths, can also add some festive flair to your temporary setup.
