The role of the carafe in serving and styleCarafes are more than just practical accessories used for serving wine. They make an elegant addition to any tablescape. Designed for serving wine, water and many other drinks, a carafe accentuates their unique character and shows the table has been set with care and attention. Traditional glass carafes add a classic touch, while modern coloured glass or crystal carafes can be a perfect conversation starter. Fill a carafe with fresh water and slices of lemon or a colourful fruity punch to keep guests happy and hydrated throughout the meal. An elegant carafe makes it possible to impress guests by serving something quite ordinary with a touch of class and refinement.
