Water Glasses water glass

Every place setting needs a water glass. These glasses can be used for any purpose, but you can chose to use smaller glasses for water than you use for other beverages since a lot of guests use water to supplement their beverages, not act as the primary beverage.

Beverage Glasses beverage glass

Juice Glasses juice glass

Every place that serves breakfast, brunch or juice at any hour should have a supply of juice glasses. These small glasses are usually about 4 to 6 ounces and are designed to hold small portions of juice.

Coffee Glasses coffee glass

wine glasses on table
For Italian restaurants, be sure there are enough wine glasses to accommodate both your red and white wines. You might want to keep an extra dozen red and a dozen white glasses in the back just in case.

Quick Tip
Keep enough glasses on hand to minimize the need to take glasses directly from the dishwasher to the table. Hot glasses should never be filled with ice or cold liquid. The temperature shock makes them more prone to breakage.
