Butterfly seat cards at Martha Stewart. I’m only bookmarking this one because I love the shape of these cocktail glasses. Where can I find these?

Surprize Balls – Design Kit : TOPS Malibu. Very nice! A kit that has everything you need to wrap up your own surprise balls. (p.s. I have some instructions for DIY surprise balls which I made last year.)

    those are coupes – these are my preference as i don’t like to use flutes but are apparently not the best way to enjoy champagne because it warms to quickly… but i don’t love champagne much either so, oh well. these are the type rumored to be shaped from marie antoinette’s breast — snopes says that’s false, but isn’t it a fun story?

    They’re old fashioned champagne glasses

    I have cocktail glasses the same shape for the bowl but the stem is shorter. I think that’s how you tell the difference between them.

    Butterfly seat cards: Did you check the back for a list of vendors by pages?

    Sharon – I only saw it online, I don’t get the magazine. But I might try to track it down in my library. (That’s a little joke, my library never has the magazine I want!)

    Thanks Allison and Latenac – I know that they are coupes but I should have been more specific that I love that specific shape: nearly half sphere with long stems. Most coupes are squat (the boobie shape) and have stems so short I find they are uncomfortable to hold.

    here are a few i found, the first is from the UK so you probably don’t want those. The other two are from Macy’s; these glasses are also referred to as champagne saucers.

    i think this one may be a little shorter than you want.

    I don’t think there’s anything that will replace de la mer. i use it and i won’t use anything else. it’s a lot of shell out at one time, but you seriously use such a small amount you should only have to buy once a year. i always get compliments on my skin too. good stuff!

    Oh, I think those are the Alessi Mami martini glasses. I saw them in Blueprint a while back (in one of those little booklets they included in the middle of the mag, this one was about making cocktails) and fell in LOVE with them and bookmarked them for when I am rich and can buy a set of six.

    Herschel – I’m afraid it’s the half sphere shape I’m enamored with.
