To flute or not to flute, that is the question

To flute or not to flute, that is the question

Aug 21, 2007

Somehow we have escaped to our mid- ... ok, late-30's without owning a set of champagne glasses. For some reason this summer no less than three occasions have appeared that called for such stemware, and each time we passed off the festive bubbly in something very unbecoming of such a noble drink.

We had been pondering a set of eight to have on hand and just kept resisting the purchase. In this month's Metropolitan Home magazine, they listed a mini Hi-Low blurb about the champagne saucer. We had completely forgotten the saucer as an option! Instant chic - Audrey Hepburn and 50's cream tuxedo thoughts crossed our minds and suddenly all resisitance to the purchase has been replaced with glee. So, readers ... which way do you prefer your bubbly? Flute or saucer?

We're opting for the low version via Crate and Barrel's Posh cocktail saucer pictured here ($8.95).
