cuter when they’re mini sized babies.
The same is true for serving pieces such as the mini-sized,
single-portion glasses from Libbey. They may not be as cuddly, but they’re still cute, and great to make a big splash at your next gathering.
|3 small oz of pure fun!|
recent holiday preview at the Marriott in Times Square,
I met up with the good folks from Libbey glass.
You probably are familiar with their full sized glasses, bowls and the
like, but Libbey makes a bunch of minis that make a mighty impact when you
present them to your guests or family.
For example, the Mini Mar5ini set gives you six, 3 oz. mini sized
martini glasses along with a small, glass pitcher (presumably to mix up the
martinis in). But while a 3 oz martini
might not quite whet your whistle (unless you were a Lilliputian or a very
light drinker), these pint-sized pretties can also be used to serve
appetizer-sized, single portions of ceviche, or ice cream, or some other tasty
|for the diet-conscious, perhaps, but smaller portions look so cute, too!|
Another just serving idea is the
“Just Desserts” box of what look to me to be mini-sized sherry glasses, but
they’ll serve up puddings to teeny parfaits. For the diet-conscious, try a
dollop of Greek yogurt topped with some fresh berries for a guilt-free
dessert. Or, place a small round a pound cake in the bottom, topped with fruits
and whipped cream to delight each and every person at your table with their own
literally “short” cake! The Just Desserts set has 25 pieces: a dozen, 2.7 oz.. Glass dishes, a dozen,
graceful, mini-sized stainless steel
spoons, and a recipe card. Of course, you can use these in so many ways besides
dessert. Nestle different types of
olives or appetizers in these and place them on an attractive tray for a truly
different “appetizer buffet.” Or, if you
wish, use them for after-dinner drinks. The minute you see these pint-sized
prices, you’ll know just what you want to do with them. Any of the Libbey
mini-sized servers would make a lovely shower gift for a bride-to-be, or buy a few sets for your next party. They’ll be the smash hit—I promise, and they
won’t break your budget. Suggested retail? Under
mass market retailers such as Target and also at restaurant supply and in-store retailers, and online.
