Put your martini glasses to work by using them to create fun gifts, pretty centrepieces or modern decor Oversized martini glasses serve double duty by adding flair to parties and social functions. The only limitation when using your large martini glasses for something other than martinis is your imagination. So, if you've been thinking of replacing your martini glasses because they are too large or because you aren't a martini drinker, you might want to reconsider.

Room Décor

Purchase an oversized martini glass and use it as a centrepiece. During the Christmas season, fill it with decorative balls, miniature wrapped boxes or potpourri. During non-festive times of the year, fill it halfway with water use floating candles to create a romantic mood. You could even use your large martini glass to house a flower arrangement.

Serving Dishes

During get-togethers, set a few large martini glasses on the buffet table or throughout the house filled with food items, such as mixed nuts, candy, olives, small pickles or pretzels.

Culinary Creations

For a healthy morning wake-up, alternate yoghurt, fresh fruit and granola. It's not only good for you, but eye-pleasing and tasty. Later in the day, prepare shrimp cocktail in martini glasses or if you prefer to wait until later in the meal to use your martini glasses, serve trifle or create colourful parfaits in them.

Whimsical Beverage Cooler

Fill a gigantic acrylic martini glass with crushed ice and use it as a cooler to hold wine, beer or other beverages. Alternatively, use it as a punch bowl during a large social gathering.

Bathroom Elegance

Use different size clear martini glasses to use as functional, yet pretty, containers. Fill smaller martini glasses with cotton swabs. Use larger martini glasses to hold cotton balls, bath salts or decorative soaps. Arrange the glasses together on your bathroom counter or place them on a bathroom vanity tray.

Gift Baskets

Create a fun gift basket by using an extra-large, acrylic martini glass as the container. The obvious, for example: a martini shaker, set of smaller martini glasses and a bottle of liqueur. Place tissue paper or raffia in the bottom of the martini glass, then arrange the other items on top. Surround everything but the stem of the filled glass with a clear gift bag and tie together at the top using a large bow or plenty of curling ribbon.
