What’s the trendiest way to toast your family and friends in 2016? Making sure the glass you raise is a coupe. It exudes a vintage appeal that’s in style now, but its real charm is a deep bowl and sturdy stem that make it easy to fill and comfortable to hold. No wonder it was a hit at both the French court and the Speakeasy. When you’re not sipping Champagne or a cocktail from your set of coupes, try using them in modern ways as either decor (float individual flower blossoms or votive candles in them) or as serving pieces at dinner parties for everything from shrimp cocktail to ambrosia.
