Toast to 2018 with Glassware from Belle Cose

Whether you are staying in for an intimate dinner for two, or hosting a large fete to ring in the New Year, you should sip Champagne from glassware that looks as good as the bubbles taste.

We turned to Belle Cose to find the chicest vessels for sipping away 2017 and welcoming 2018. From flutes to coupes to unbreakable glasses, these will keep you toasting in style.

1 Waterford Lismore Diamond Toasting Flute ($75): We can’t imagine anything better than toasting the New Year with caviar and Champagne, sipped from these glasses. The Lismore Diamond pattern is a strikingly modern reinvention of the Waterford classic; characterized by intricate diamond cuts rendered in radiant fine crystal.

2 Simon Pearce Cavendish Champagne Flute ($75): Taste your favorite vintage in this Cavendish stemware, and you’ll know why it has been a favorite for more than three decades. Delicate yet durable, meticulously handmade, for daily use and celebrations. These glasses are handmade by Simon Pearce glassblowers using centuries-old techniques.

3 Juliska Amalia Champagne Flute ($74): Stunningly statuesque, this flute is bedecked with a playful swirl ascends upward, alongside your Champagne bubbles.

4 Riedel Nachtmann Supreme Champagne ($14.95): If you’re having a large party, turn to these affordable glasses to add style to your tabletop.

5 William Yeoward Fern Champagne Saucer ($280): Yes, this is a splurge, but we think these traditional Champagne saucers are worth every penny. Evocative of the 1920’s , it’s a beautiful addition to the Fern collection. (Fern is a pattern from the mid to late 19th century when botanical designs were very popular. In the Great Houses of England, landowners were competing with each other to grow and propagate plants from cuttings brought back from exploration in exotic places.)

6 Govino Classic Champagne Flute ($4.95): If your crowd plans to get rowdy, then opt for these plastic Champagne flutes. They feature a flavor-enhancing shape to feature the bead of sparkling wine and assist in the preservation of carbonation. The easy to handle and beautiful pieces are crafted in unbreakable, lightweight, recyclable plastic as a convenient, safer alternative to glass. The shatterproof, reusable, and 100 percent recyclable flutes are made from the same food grade BPA-free polymer. Use these semi-disposable stemless Champagne flutes anywhere without the worry of breakage.
