Raise a Glass!
Weddings are a time for celebration- from showers to engagement parties to drinks with your groomsmen. Grabbing a glass and sharing a drink can be a fun way to sit down and hash out the seating chart. It may even be time to replace your IKEA stemware with something more bespoke. We would like to propose a toast, to our collection of hand blown artisan made glasses. Each piece is made from recycled glass in an employee owned studio in Guatemala. The result is one-of-a-kind drink-ware perfect for registries and saying thank you to your dedicated wedding party.
And we don’t just have the lovely drink-ware to outfit the future bar. We’ve got a few ideas for what to put in them. So raise your fair trade artisan glass, and let’s toast to your wedding bliss. Now go make some drinks with your bridesmaids and groomsmen who helped you keep it together through all the stress of planning your big day. Cheers!
