Party People


On a trip to World Market earlier this week I saw something that caught my eye - Drink Markers by Vacu Vin. These cute little guys come in sets of twelve unique plastic shapes with a small suction cup on the back that will attach to the smooth surface of a glass. With a different shape and color on each glass it makes it easy to identify which glass is yours.



Even more fun each different shape is given a descriptive name on the back of the box identifying it with a personality trait. The set I bought was called Party People. The names include Jolly, Sneaky, Devilish, Macho, Naughty, Curious, Cool and, oddly, Veggie. Deciding who gets which marker could lead to some interesting conversation.

I attached Honest and Deep to the sides of some great glasses I just bought at Ikea and filled them with lemonade, a splash of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice, and some cherries macerated in vanilla sugar and kirsch. Then I chose Cuddly and Mysterious for two summery glasses of lemonade I poured for my son and a friend.

Since I don’t have any wine glass charms I think these guys are a practical addition to my small collection of partyware. Even if they aren’t practical they are pretty fun and they make me smile. Do they stay on? Yes, especially once the glass begins to sweat. As the box says, they “stick around longer than most guests.”
