We filled a tray up with pretty purple glasses that had just a tiny stem to let the older girls at our holiday party feel more sophisticated. Any pretty glass will work! Take it up a notch by placing a different colored or flavored rock candy swizzle stick in just one of the glasses and have a prize ready for this special guest.

I found the rock candy at a local shop but you would very likely be able to pick it up at a party supply store or online and have a ton of colors to choose from. Okay, confession, after calling the shop ahead of time I asked my husband to swing out on his lunch and pick them up—in a snow storm. Thankfully, he was happy to fulfill the request. Phew!
