A Lavender Collins & Villeroy and Boch Barware

Villeroy and Boch Lowland Whiskey Glass

A few weeks ago I went to a Cyber Monday party held by PSMM (Philly Social Media Moms) at Dave and Busters in Plymouth Meeting. Dave and Buster's in Plymouth Meeting has some great brand new event rooms perfect for your company Christmas party or pre-wedding shower or rehersal dinner. 

While we were there not only were we wowed by toys from some fabulous toy makers, (and took home some great swag!) but we had the opportunity to sample some some great wine from Paradox Vineyards (PDX) and my favorite, some gift ware from Villeroy and Boch. (If you're planning on picking up a few of these for your home or as gifts for the holidays, be sure to check their web site for special discount codes.)  Also in attendance were the representatives from Cradles to Crayons, a great children's charity that helps children stay safe and warm during the winter. 

While most of you are probably familiar with Villeroy and Boch's china lines, they are that and so much more. I have to admit I totally fell in love with some barware they had on display. So if you're looking for a wedding gift (or even a Christmas gift), head to their web page where you can purchase their Lowland whiskey glasses (shown above) or their Canadian Whiskey Tumblers shown in the signature drink by 12 Bottle Bar shown below.

Not only has Villeroy and Boch designed this great glass and barware they've also provided some great recipes for drinks that are a 'cut above.' 

Tired of the same old Whiskey Collins?  Why not try this Lavender Collins?  Not only is it easy on the eyes, it's smooth going down.  The 12 Bottle Bar web site has this Collins shown in Villeroy and Boch barware--pretty and delicious looking! Love the garnish!
