Make your toast in style

I always love to entertain… New Year’s, however, ranks highest on my list. Everyone is ready to have a good time on New Year’s, and nothing is too glam for the holiday! Champagne is a must on New Year’s Eve, making what you serve it in all that much more important. Here are some of my fabulous selections that are perfect for raising a toast.

Find the perfect glass to make your toast in!


By now you know that I adore Juliska's products! I love that each are hand blown giving every piece a unique quality. These Jessica Champagne saucers are beautifully and uniquely detailed.
If you prefer a champagne flute, their Victoria tall flutes are just right- they just invite you to pour the bubbly in!


These fabulously festive and interesting Cheers flutes are perfect for New Year's Eve! I love that their etchings are mismatched and not all the same. They say fun right from the get go!

Kate Spade

Kate Spade's look is always clean and crisp and so are her champagne glasses. With your choice of a flute or saucer, you can ring in the New Year with style.

Crate & Barrel

For you purists out there, these tall, cylindrical Edge Flutes are great! They are chic and clean-lined and add an extra "edge" to your New Year's décor.

Fishs Eddy

I always seam to go back to Fishs Eddy… they are one of my all-time favorites. I couldn't resist these unusual (and economical) stemless champagne glasses. They are unlike any champagne glass I have ever seen which makes them interesting, especially for a party.


No New Year's party would be complete, without keeping your champagne cold on ice! This Mauviel® Hammered Aluminum Champagne Bucket by Sur La Table does the job with style!

To help you ring in New Year, here's one of my favorite champagne cocktail recipes. Pop open your champagne and enjoy the holidays!
