This monogrammed plastic tumbler looks pretty spiffy, but it actually costs less than many rental glasses. You can get 100 of them for $89.95 at The American Wedding. (These are filled with tangerine juice and Double Cross Luxury Vodka, a play on a standard screwdriver.)

These are so pretty, you can get away with serving them in disposable plastic cups!  The exotically flavored gin and tonics are embellished with a lemongrass-stalk stirrer and flowering spearmint.

These retro-looking drinks are garnished garnished with a lime peel-wrapped melon ball.  Now that looks gorgeous… but time-consuming!

I’m not much for “wasting” food, but this is a cool idea!  Here we have sparkling wine with thin slices of nectarines, apples, and grapes steeping inside.

Not only are the glasses orange, but this lovely little lollipop is orange too! It’s actually made from a rolled-up piece of orange peel, speared with a wooden swizzle stick!

Simple yet stunning, this is the signature cocktail at Los Angeles’s Table 8 restaurant.  A single basil leaf and an organically shaped glass are all it takes!
