They could be goblets but I like saying snifter. They had Crate and Barrel stickies, but when I searched with Crate and Barrel, this line (handcrafted recycled glass awesomeness) doesn’t have snifters. May be old? May be not Crate and Barrel? They have margarita glasses, tumblers, a pitcher and goblets that match. But no snifters. Well. They DO have the snifters in a green color:
They call it Summer Drink Glass, but I really do like the word Snifter. Mr Snork's dismay (they are kind of giant for drinking vessels) I brought them home. I bargained a little, because it’s not my fault it wasn’t a Bric-a-Brac sale day, and Jesse was already shaking his head, not as much at the $2.75/ea price tags, as much as at the thought of housing the fishbowls in our cupboards. $14 took them home ($1.75 ea). Pricy!
My thought was – to use them as centerpiece thingy for the upcoming reception Party. Fill them with pebbles and seashells and float a candle on top? Little bunches of flowers? Googling "snifter centerpiece" turned up these:
I KNEW I should have gotten the adjacent floating candles that day. Sigh. Jesse's vehemently opposed to the idea of live goldfish, tiny frogs, or little mice livening up my 'centerpieces', so I have to dream in confines of his restricted imagination. Sigh. Lizards would also be cool. How often can you dine and watch a tiny lizard twirl in a snifter? Like, once in your lifetime, right?
I also like the more traditional idea of stuffing them with flowers and/or enjoying margaritas from them meanwhile, before and after the Party. Jesse’s hoping they get taken by guests after the party or accidentally broken. We’re often on different pages like that.
I wrapped them and set them aside for now, keeping out a couple out to 'practice flower arranging'. Or lizard taming, if I win that battle. I have read up onine that you can make the flowers the day before and store in refrigerator, which I have. Win. All that's left is a trip to Trader Joe's/Farmer's Market and a set of large scissors to cut the bouquets snifter-short.
Snifter. Snifter. Snifter. There, I'm done now..
