I’d just leave a supply of the glasses on a table near the door with a “Take Me Home” sign on them.

Not many people are going to want a single glass or at most two if they are a couple. Most folks want a minimum of 4 matching glasses to make a set, and a lot of people don’t want to have oddball singleton glasses cluttering the cabinets.  The logos are just going to decrease the number of people who want them, and having to take them home drippy or sticky from being used all night isn’t exactly going to increase their desirability.

So make a pretty display of clean, unused glasses for those who are so inclined and let them claim them on the way out.  Put normal old boring drinks glasses on the table and at the bar for use during the event.

OP, I don’t mean to hate on your choices but what Horseradish: said is spot on. I for one wouldn’t want to take home a sticky glass after using it all night so it would probably get left behind if it was me. I would just leave them on a separate table with a cute “thank-you” and let people take one on their way home.

I have too many glasses cluttering up my cabinets as it is.  This would go straight to Goodwill, and most people I know are the same way.

I think it’s a cute idea and would work great with the sign idea above!  To each their own.  If they want to use them and take them they can and if not oh well.  I will bet there will be a few people grabbing more than one at the end of the night so they have a “set” 🙂

I would love to take one of these homes but Idk how I will carry it. Glass are fragile. If I wanted to take it home is someone going to wrap it up for me so it doesnt break by the time i get it home?

Mine were chalkboard with first name written on them and paper straws with a flag that had full name and table number

I thought people would leave them behind, but only 2 people did

Olgarie:  I think it is a fun idea!! Don’t listen to the debbie downers saying they won’t take one! You will never please everyone.. even with an edible favor! We are doing similiar but we are using plastic stadium cups and we are giving everyone 2 cups. I know some people might not want them but I think its cool so that’s all that matters! Koodos to you for sticking with your idea! I think its gonna work out great!

I was a bit like eww sticky and i’d end up breaking it on the way home when i read it, but love it now you’ve said about the cleaning and wrapping station. Although i do think maybe it would be better to wrap them up without being used as i think by the time people have had a few drinks they would forget them or not deal with the hassle of going to the cleaning and wrapping station.
