This Gorgeous Glassware is Perfect as a Bridal Gift or Entertaining PieceWords by Courtney Kellar Words by Courtney Cox

It's that time of year folks-when you have a million and one things to do and never enough to time to do them! My compulsive list making is taken to a whole new level around the holidays, but there's one thing that seems to have slipped my mind. I'm set to be a bridesmaid in a mid-December wedding and somehow the bachelorette party and bridal shower have snuck up on me!
So, here it is a week before the parties and I'm not only outfit-less, but giftless! In my fanatical search for last minute gifts I found a beautiful solution that I think may help other ladies out there in a similar plight.
We at Destination I Do received information about Julia Knight's collection of holiday table and glassware. I immediately noticed that these beautiful bowls, plates and glasses are much more than holiday pieces. I think they would be perfect as a bridal shower gift. Buy and use one of the lovely serving pieces as part of the bridal shower luncheon. Then at the end of the party, surprise the bride with the fact that she gets to take all the stunning glassware home.
The jewel-toned colors, varied textures and eye-catching shapes of the Julia Knight Collection are perfect for any type of entertaining and can be easily incorporated into serving pieces you already own. All bowls, trays, glasses and serving pieces are handcrafted by artisans in Italy and India with a mother-of-pearl finish or out of Murano glass.
The collection as a whole has brilliant vibrancy. Pick the pieces that speak to you and mix them together to create a distinctive entertaining style all your own. Brides-to-be out there can add the Julia Knight Collection to your bridal registry at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales and specialty stores nationwide.
