Livia's House-Brandied Raspberry Mimosa Box

Livia Sweets is a gorgeous little shop that rolls out delicious pastries, breads and Italian fare. We all know I adore architecture and design, and Livia is one of those shops that I cannot get enough of because they have done a wonderful job of combining sleek new with old vintage pieces. For example, the dividers between tables on their patio are old wooden window panes.  I also appreciate their non-denominational holiday decor of twinkling string lights woven throughout fresh pine, eucalyptus and other fresh green foliage. I am also in love with Livia's green wall installation! 

Now I adore vintage furniture, glassware and jewelry, so when I heard Livia Sweets's was going to be including a pair of vintage glassware in each of their Mimosa Kits, so I just had to order one. Packaged in a wooden crate are a pair of vintage crystal glasses, a bundle of Eucalyptus, Livia's housemade brandied raspberries and a bottle of Bottega Prosecco. Livia recommends using the juice from the raspberry preserve in cocktails too! The rasperries are locally sourced and look plump and juicy, so needless to say, they are going to be delicious. 

I am not a glassware expert, but I think the crystal glasses I got in my mimosa kit are vintage wine glasses. The bowl has some height and is round tapering towards the top. My favourite style of glasses are champagne coupes which have a more shallow and wide bowl. Is it weird of me to say that I think champagne coupes are sexy? After all, the champagne coupe is modelled after Marie Antoinette's breast! Either way, I absolutely adore the glasses that I recieved from Livia and most definitely cherish for years to come! 

I have not popped open the bottle and cherries just yet because I am saving them for New Years! Hoping to set the tone for 2021 with a glass of delicious Raspberry Preserve Mimosa from Livia!
