I donated mine away and we kept Pete's.
A few months later, when we still didn't know anyone and I still didn't drink coffee, Pete's dad sent us a single-cup Keurig. It was sitting on the counter with our multi-cup Mr. Coffee.
I said, "We don't need the Keurig and the coffee pot on the counter."
Pete's reply was: "Well maybe if we have people over for a party or something, then we'll need the pot." We both were silent and he adds, "Yeah, we don't have any friends. What am I thinking? Who is gonna come over for a coffee party? No one. We will never have a coffee party."
And I was crying because it was just the funniest and saddest thing in the whole entire world.
Fast forward to April. I started drinking coffee because the last sip tastes like chocolate, so on weekend mornings, we will have a cup together and we'll ask the other person, "Do you wanna have a coffee party?"
So when I got a chance to check out a pair of items from Glass With A Twist for A Bride On A Budget's Virtual Engagement Party, I knew exactly what to order.
I absolutely love the mugs. Glass With A Twist sells engraved beer mugs, coffee mugs, pint glasses, shot glasses, and more.
You can get images, text, or both engraved onto your glasses.
For an engagement gift, you should definitely think about picking up a pair of engraved champagne flutes. You can engrave the actual flute, but personally, I would engrave the base of the flute. It just keeps it a little classier and a bit more subtle for when these are used post-wedding.
The majority of the glasses are clear, but I selected blue glass for ours. We have a curio for our glasses and everything on there is clear (except for a little color on the shot glasses). I loved that the blue of the mugs would just pop on our shelf.
I also love that I was sent a draft of the image before it was engraved. I told the brand exactly what I wanted and was able to select the font. I received the image below.
I was told: "The black areas of your proof will be engraved a frosted white on the glass, while the white areas of your proof will remain clear, un-etched glass."
It was exactly what I had in mind. I wanted it to be laid out in a rectangular-ish shape so it didn't look really messy on the mug. But, since the shape was so rigid, I wanted the font to be a bit more playful. This is exactly what I had in mind.
