Tabletop Accessories, Home Decor, Drink Dispensers and more!
I miss my mom. I can’t wait to see her over the holidays. I know she’ll be expecting a gift, so on top of the earrings and jewelry I’ll choose from the gifts for mom Classic Hostess offers. I know she’s a big white wine drinker and whenever she has people over she likes to impress them.
At her last party, her friend Marie came over and tried opening a wine bottle and couldn’t get it; the cork was shoddy and it began to fall apart. It was a nice bottle of wine too, an ’09 Pinot Gris. So we eventually had to press the cork into the bottle and filter the wine through a strainer — very tedious and unsightly for the guests, who asked about the bottle and what was going on. I decided that what she really needed was a wine carafe, so that if such a thing ever happens again, at least we can empty the corky wine into a beautiful container.
And so while browsing through the gifts for host, I chose mom a beautiful crystal wine carafe, something which she will always use and probably prefer to drink wine from, from now on. Now all I need are some earrings.
