My Martini Glass Obsession

I have a confession to make!  I'm addicted to martini glasses.  So, I agree, there are worse things to be addicted to but man I can't get enough.  Mostly because you can get them at the Dollar Tree for, well, a BUCK!!!  Sign me up.

1.  Desserts.  I love to use them for desserts.  Here you'll see pictures from a baby shower where I used all of the smaller martini glasses I had to display all of the cupcakes I had made.  Sure I could have just used a cake plate but isn't this MUCH cuter?  I think so.
I've also made individual trifles in martini glasses.  They are quick, easy and make you look like Martha freaking Stewart.

2.  Mashtini Bar.  OMG this was sooooooo good.  I decided to put together a mashtini bar for bunco night at my house.  Not only was it adorable but it was so easy.  I made a huge pot of mashed potatoes and kept them warm in the crockpot til party time.  Then once it was time, I placed all of the toppings (bacon, green onions, fried onion straws, salsa, butter, gravy, sour cream and whatever else you might want) in those cute little glass bowls from the dollar tree.  Once it was time to eat, everyone grabbed their large martini glass and loaded is up with their mashed potatoes.  Then they made their way through the bar with the fixins.

3.  Table Decor.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to table decor.  I love using them at Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Here are some pics of the Thanksgiving table that I put together at my mom and dad's house several years ago.  Again, quick, cheap and easy.  For the pictures below all you need is some water, fresh cranberries and tea lights.
You can also use the bigger martini glasses and add whichever flowers and greenery are you faves. Hey, you could even add your favorite floral arrangement and stack on top of wood slice centerpieces. Come on, you know I love wood slices ;-)

4.  Martini Bar.  Duh!!  Seems to be pretty obvious, huh?  Grab your favorite booze and get creative. We've made pomegranate martinis, apple get the idea.  Man I could go for a martini right about now....

There you have it.  There are just a FEW ideas that show how I've used my martini glasses.  Have you used martini glasses in a creative way?  Share some pics!!
