If watching Boardwalk Empire and Ken Burn’s Prohibition has taught me anything, it’s that drinking champagne out of a saucer/coupe is way more sophisticated than a champagne flute. It has also taught me that drinking champagne (illegally) in a fancy night club while wearing a sparkly flapper dress is way more exciting than buying a $6 bottle of Andre from 7-11 and drinking it out of a Solo cup. But hey, that’s how I roll.
Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for a great set of champagne saucers. David and I did not register for any while we were engaged and I so wish we had. We did find a set of four beautiful “saucers” at Civitan last year. The lady that sold them to us said they were from the Victorian era. They were intricately cut and had a gorgeous rose colored rim. You can see them in this photo of our bar. We were very proud of our new purchase and used them often until my mom came over one day and asked why we were drinking out of bowls. Whoops. So, I’m back in the market for champagne saucers. In addition to the fashionable saucers above, I would love to own either these and/or these.
