With the summer right around the corner, I am gearing up our little home up for many weekend visitors and rooftop gatherings. While all of my Mr.'s friends are pretty easy to please, I like to take things up a notch when my ladies come into town. That means taking a few extra steps to make things a bit more special than every other day. In my world this usually means pulling out fancy drinking glasses for chilled rosé and having water carafes ready to keep us hydrated.
Recently while browsing Etsy, I stumbled onto a little shop called MondoCubo that instantly made me think of hosting my next gathering. They specialize in beautiful, modern drinking sets that are made with porcelain. The glasses alone have a really spectacular design, but what makes them even more amazing is the companies attention ensuring that every item they make is done with "full respect of the worker conditions, ecological environment, and sustainable economy for small businesses".
While these drinking sets might be a bit pricer than what you'd normally want to spend, I think the fact that they could easily become a heirloom item makes up for the price bump. Not to mention they would be an incredible wedding gift for a hard to shop for couple. Since we have quite a few more weddings to attend in the next few months, I'm thinking that I should order a set for one or two of the happy couples.
