Entertaining The Easy Way! 2 Must-Have Recipes
I love Entertaining! Whether it be for the holidays or for every day. I love being able to set a mood that fits my guests. Everything I own is for entertaining because without friends and good times life is just a little too boring for me. I want people to come over and feel right at home and have those moments that say ” I love coming to your house”. One of the biggest ways I create my inviting home is with the elegance of glassware. You can totally create the mood and create an inviting ambiance with something as simple and yet elegant as Libbey Glassware.
For my Holiday Get Together I headed to my local Bed, Bath and Beyond Store and purchased Libbey® Glass Perfect Signature™ Auden Stemware Footed Beverage Glasses. These glasses are beautiful and the shape is perfect for not only drinks but desserts as well :). I love the variety they offer and how the styles go perfectly in every room of my home. I decided on Libbey Perfect Signature Stemware Collection Auden Collection because they are a perfect size for both desserts and drinks. I also picked up a few sets as gifts as I knew a few of my guests would fall in love with them.
- Let me tell you a few reason why I choose Libbey:
- Libbey’s Finest Stemware is exquisitely made in America. Important to me as a consumer.
- Libbey is the top glassware manufacturer in the Americas and one of the largest tableware suppliers in the world. They know how important quality and style is to us.
- Libbey believes every occasion – big and small – is an opportunity to celebrate life. Libbey elevates those experiences. I appreciate that because my guests deserve the best.
- My Mom also used Libbey. She knew quality and elegance.
As I said before I love being able to serve desserts as well as drinks to my guests in style. So for the party, I made Cherry Cheesecake Parfaits that looked amazing in my New Libbey Signature. For those who did not want dessert, I also served appetizers and drinks. My Virgin Shirley Temples were a hit.
Our party was a total hit and I smiled the whole time at just how beautiful the drinks looked against the twinkle of the holiday lights. I almost felt a little like “Entertainer of the Year” haha 🙂
The Recipe for my Virgin Shirley Temple’s is super simple. They are light and refreshing and kids love them too.
Virgin Shirley Temple Recipe
Maraschino Cherries with Stems in Cherry Juice
Place Ice in Glassware. Add 7 Up slowly. Drain two Maraschino Cherries and place two
in the bottom of the glass.
Top with Maraschino Cherry Juice. I keep adding juice until it turns a beautiful red color.
So sweet and delicious. Enjoy~
