Bar Craft Wine Glass Charms
Advantages: A good idea
Disadvantages: Not the best quality
Another wine review this morning, I must really be craving the stuff. As my previous review mentioned we drink a lot of wine in our house and always have plenty of bottles as we are members of the BA wine club. We get 12 bottles every three months which is actually not that much but we have a bit of a stockpile at the moment as I am not drinking due to being pregnant. The nice thing about the club though is that you can request more bottles if you wish or less if you wish, you can tailor it to your requirements.This means we are usually great hosts at a party as the wine is always flowing and people like coming to ours for the wine.
We got some very nice Villeroy and Bosch wine glasses from my Grandfather as an engagement present years ago and haven't broken any to this day which is nice so we have these for our guests rather than plastic wine glasses, yuck I hate drinking wine out of a plastic glass. The only trouble with that is when you are at a party it is hard to keep track of which glass is yours. It's very annoying though when you are at a party and put your wine glass down and then someone else has put theirs down too and you don't know then which wine is yours and with 20 plus people doing this it gets very confusing. It's ok if you have plastic cups as you can write your names on them but not on my nice V&B glasses. That is why in the end we bought some wine glass charms.
I got a few packs from Amazon. You get 6 charms in a pack and they cost about £5. Now, they are not really the best quality and to be honest look like something you get out of a Christmas cracker. They are just what they say, charms, much like you would get for a charm bracelet but like I said are sort of Christmas cracker quality, nothing you would wear as a real charm but for a few hours on a wine glass they will do.
The little charms come on a very flimsy thin metal ring which hooks together at the end. This allows you to open and close it and hook it over the stem of your wine glass so it identifies your glass compared to another one. The charms are all related to wine which I think is a nice touch, there is a wine glass, a bottle of wine, a corkscrew, a wine bucket, a bunch of grapes and a slice of pizza. The charms are silver, well probably not real silver but silver colour and they also have some little coloured plastic beads on them to give them a bit of colour. When the charms are on the glass they clink against the glass which is actually a bit annoying at times to hear all this clinking but if you wish to identify your glass this is an ok way to do it.
