This month on BKLS, we are taking a deep dive into “The Art Of Entertaining at Home.” And that means having the essentials to make it possible. Of course, one of those essentials is glassware. And what better to kick off the festivities of the month by featuring a few fantastic Black-Owned Glassware brands we love.
My daughter believes I have an unhealthy obsession with glassware. But I believe fabulous glassware can elevate and beautify someone’s day.
From Tumblrs to Champagne Flutes with varying sizes and shapes—each gorgeous piece of glassware has a purpose. In the past, I bought what I liked or loved and utilized them for their intended purposes. However, I became very intentional with using my things with time. From using my grandma’s crystal flutes for my morning glass of water or to house, a single red rose by my bedside, to using my blush beauties (wine glasses) to enjoy my afternoon Cashew Alternative Yogurt from Trader Joe. I enjoy my things the way we all should; however we would like.
I have always believed that you do not need a special occasion to use your special things. You can use your items can be used for a variety of purposes. All you need is a little creativity. Fill your days with beauty and make each moment as extraordinary as possible.
Here are five Black-Owned Glassware brands to buy this month.
