Dress (your table) to impress: The best deals on glassware
Some of the best deals out there on glassware that will finish off your table
The dinner party
Picture this: You've been preparing food all day, the house smells absolutely glorious. You've cleaned and tidied so everything looks perfect. You spent 30 minutes in the shop trying to decide which wines to buy and you didn't leave till you were sure they would match the food. You've put on your finery and are looking the part and your guests arrive, each as impressed with the effort as the next...
That is, until you pour them a drink, each with a different version of a supermarket's basic £2.99 tumblers. It might not be enough to ruin the evening, but certainly enough to kill the look of your exquisite dining table and have the guests all exchanging bemused glances. It will not do!
Too much? Ok, how about this...
You just want all your glasses to match and don't want to spend a fortune!
Both these scenarios need the same solution, and we are here to deliver it.

We love how simple and elegant these ones look, making them ideal for any occasion. At £18.99 for a set of 6, you can't go far wrong.
Few things look more sophisticated than a whisky tumbler with a good measure of Scotland's finest. Of course, you don't have to have whisky in it but, why wouldn't you!

Have you noticed that in movies, they never pour their whisky from the bottle? Not a Johnnie Walker label in site. I'm sure it's an unwillingness to insert some accidental product placement, but it might just be the level of class you're looking to bring to the table.
