In the grand scheme of food blogging and food photography, glasses often get left out. I admit that my drinks category is quite sparse (something I vow to fix). Plates, spoons, bowls… they seem to get all the attention.
But I want to spotlight one of my favorite recent finds: these adorable vintage-style juice glasses. They’re the perfect size for a glass of orange juice in the morning. I have about 9 of them now and use them each and every day.
I started with two from World Market. Not realizing how much I’d love them, I only bought two (I tend to buy props, if not singly, in pairs). By the time I decided I needed more (I actually wanted a bunch for my blog birthday party in February), World Market was, sadly, out. They had been discontinued.
I may have shed a tear.
But a few months later I got lucky, stumbling across a set of 3 almost identical vintage glasses in an antique shop.
And then just last month, I rounded out my (mismatched) set by picking up 4 more from Crate & Barrel. Those are still available. You should go buy some.
Aside from their intended purpose, they also make great nic-nac holders for wee demitasse spoons, condiment spoons, teaspoons, more spoons (I told you I liked spoons), maybe some forks, extra pixie sticks and paper straws, styling tweezers, q-tips, and um, candy canes? (Don’t ask).
And milkshakes. Cookie dough milkshakes, to be exact. Although their diminuative 7oz size means you might very well end up drinking 3 milkshakes all by yourself.
But that’s ok.
I’m not one to judge.
