Cranberry Champagne Cocktail with the Libbey Perfect Signature Collection

“This post was sponsored by Libbey as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”

Holidays with my family a pretty low key.  We're most interested in good food and good conversation and leave out the stress of fancy clothes or grand tablescapes (although we do set a lovely table).  That said, no matter how big or small the occasion, it always feels like more of a celebration with fancy drinks in pretty glasses.

Or, maybe it's just me?

Regardless, in less than three weeks, Christmas will be here and Santa (me) will need a drink (alcoholic for me and non-alcoholic for all those under 21).  Preferably bubbly and in Christmas colors.

Serious side-note, though, you guys.  It's December.  I feel like it was just Halloween. Yet, here I am thinking about Christmas drinks and trying to remember to hide our new Elf friend, Charlie (aka Baby), every night before I go to sleep. I mean, December!? I'm obviously still processing the fact that October was more than a month away.

All the more reason to celebrate Christmas and family with a tasty drink in a pretty glass. Which reminds me, drinking glasses.  

More specifically, champagne flutes.

I love champagne flutes.  I love the way they feel in my hand. I love the way they look. And I love the way champagne flutes scream LET'S PARTY!  Ok, they don't always shout, but when I think of a celebration, I think of this pretty slender glass.  And, I don't know what you guys think, but, drinking champagne in anything other than a champagne flute is a big no-no.

This holiday I will be celebrating with Libbey Glass Perfect Signature Auden Flutes, the top glassware manufacturer in the Americas and one of the largest tableware suppliers in the world. Libbey believes every occasion – big and small – is an opportunity to celebrate life and helps by elevating those experiences. I couldn't agree more.
