"When it comes to entertaining, especially for sporting events, it’s all about clear glass over plastic. Not only does it look better, but it’s also better for the environment. Crate & Barrel is great for these types of household items because you can pick from items that will always be in stock and everything is affordable. Years ago I purchased about 50 plates and glasses - an initial investment that I am forever grateful I made. I got my wine glasses there, too – so when someone gets drunk and drops one I don’t care, just move on and enjoy the party!"
