The Backyard-Ready Wine Glasses My Friends Always Threaten to Steal from Me (Bonus: They’re on Sale!)
My friends are decent, honest people, so I know they’d never actually steal from me. But, as a whole, they do threaten it an awful lot! Some of them want to take my dog when I’m not looking (as if she’d betray me and go with them!). Others have admitted to eyeing my mixing-slash-storage bowls. And almost every single person who comes by during the warmer months threatens to steal the insulated, stemless cups I use to serve them wine. These glasses are downright gorgeous, and better yet, they’re just as functional as they are pretty.
And I am very happy to share that Rifle Paper Co. currently has this summer-ready drinkware on sale. Just enter the code BLOOM25 at checkout to receive 25 percent off your order. The cups are available in four cheerful floral prints, and you might want to get one of each so your guests will have an easy time knowing which one is theirs. I know I’ll certainly be sending the link to each and every one of my friends.

You might be wondering — what’s so great about these wine cups? For starters, just look at these things! They’re a collaboration between Rifle Paper Co. (the single best brand, when it comes to floral designs) and Corkcicle (a brand I trust for keeping all things cold). They’re emblazoned oh-so-beautifully with Rifle’s signature flower design and have a sleek teardrop shape with two perfectly placed flat spots, which I use unofficially as a place to put my thumb. I have the white ones, but the cups also come in mint and blush pink.
As I mentioned, the cup is more than just pretty. The official claim is that the triple-insulated stainless steel technology will keep your drink hot for up to three hours and cold for up to nine. I haven’t had anything hot out of it, but I can attest that wine stays cold — even as you get to the dregs, even if it’s sitting directly in the sun on a 90-degree day.
I also really like that the shatterproof clear lid has a sliding mechanism I can close between sips to keep bugs out. And the bottoms of the cups have a no-slip silicone ring to keep them steady. The cup part should be hand-washed, but the lid can go in the dishwasher.
These glasses are not necessarily inexpensive, but I’ve used cheaper insulted wine glasses and haven’t loved them (some have leaked and most failed to keep my wine cold while I sat outside). Now that they’re on sale for less than $30 a pop, it’s even more of a justified purchase. So, if I were you, I’d act fast. This sale is running for a limited time only, and after my friends and I stock up (yes, I’ll be grabbing a few more), who knows how many will be left …
