champagne coupe

coupe definition:  shallow, saucer shaped stemmed glass for sparkling wine.  Rumor has it the coupe is modeled after a certain part of Marie Antoinette's figure.  These glasses were fashionable in France from the 1700's-1970's and in the US from the 1930's to the 1980's.    What do you think-do you prefer a coupe or a flute?  Would make a festive wedding gift!

I  walked into this store on Saturday in St. Helena, and I walked out with 4 large shopping bags full of goodies.  If you're headed to a wedding in Napa, head to Napa Valley Vintage Home to buy the wedding gift.  You will find something gorgeous in this store for a wedding gift, hostess gift, mom's or best friend's birthday.  Spencer Peterman olive wood bowls, serving dishes, candles, necklaces, unique children's books, and cutting boards too pretty to put away in a cabinet.  Located in charming downtown St. Helena, Napa Valley Vintage Home is a must!
