Water vessels come in many shapes and sizes and can accommodate intimate family meals to large group gatherings.  Since we are not huge fans of acrylic and plastic ware, here are some of our favorite options in glass, recycled glass, crystal, and non-lead crystal perfect for any table setting.

With Summer already here in many parts of the world, keeping hydrated is important especially during the warmer months.  So, why not treat yourself to a cool drink of infused water?

Infused water is a healthy alternative to soda, energy drinks, and those yummy coffee creations we all love. Drinking infused water can help you look and feel great.  It's true, when we drink water we feel better.

Top five reasons to drink infused water:

  • Drinking water helps you feel fuller longer so you eat less.
  • Water helps flush toxins from your body and boosts your immune system.
  • Helps keep your skin moisturized and clear of blemishes.
  • It gives you more energy.
  • Delicious naturally infused water supplies your body with antioxidants and vitamins.
