Champagne flutes are tall narrow wine glasses with a stem that are used for drinking champagne. These elegantly shaped glasses are quite prone to breakage, which is why cheaply priced champagne glasses are an economical alternative for a large New Year’s Eve party, weddings, and other special occasions.
While cheap plastic champagne glasses are available at most party stores, finding affordable flutes made of glass is a bit more challenging. Here’s a few companies that carry glass champagne flutes at a price that won’t break the bank:
Target.com offers up a 12 pack of cheap glass champagne glasses in the “Charisma” line. These glasses hold 6 ounces of liquid, are handwashable only, and are priced at $29.99 for the twelve which breaks down to $2.50 a stem. Shipping from Target.com is free when you spend $50.
Ikea.com also carries very inexpensive champagne flutes. These glass champagne flutes hold 5 ounces of liquid and are bundled up as a 6 pack for $4.99, or 83 cents a stem.
Discountmugs.com is a promotional company that’s in the business of personalizing things like glassware, mugs, travel mugs, and the like. They also carry plain glass champagne glasses at an incredible price. Libbey “Napa” pattern is the cheapest champagne flute in their inventory with the prices ranging with the size of the order. A set of twelve “blanks” will run $3.39 a stem. Order 36 and the price drops to $1.56 a stem. Buy 72 and the price is even lower yet at $1.22 per stem.
The advantage of ordering champagne flutes through a commercial company like this is the option of having a design or text printed on the glass. The artwork set-up fee is $15 per color, and to print it on the glass increases the price an additional 5 cents a stem. At those prices, you could have something like “Season Greetings from the Smiths” inscribed in red, and then send them home with your guests for a souvenir of the evening.
Customglassware.com is also a promotional vendor that sells champagne glasses at amazingly low prices. The price of their glassware includes a one color imprint. The cheapest line of champagne flutes run $2.89 for 36, $2.18 for 72, and even less as you buy more. Custom Glass also has flutes in different colored stems which are only slightly less in cost than the plain glass.
Last but not least are local restaurant supply stores who offer glassware at wholesale prices. Many of the these companies carry Libby “Napa” typically priced at around $2.50 per stem when a case pack of 12 is purchased. If you don’t have a supply house in your community, Restaurantsource.com is worth checking out for a very complete line of cheap champagne glasses that are also washable.
