Champagne bowls might be trendy but the flutes make the bubbles last longer in sparkling wine/champagne because of the smaller surface area..

Our Christmas glassware is called 'plastic'. We don't have sit-down meals because there are too many of us and we don't have glassware because we are entertaining on a paved terrace with children running about in bare feet. Experience has taught us that even one broken glass can travel for metres and take weeks to clean away. I would like some information on quality, dishwasher-proof outdoor drinkware. I know that there are acrylic products available but my experience has been that it doesn't go into the dishwasher without clouding or cracking.

We would never put goid crystal in the dishwasher. Take a little bit more time and carefully handwash, rinse clean and dry. Leaving stemware upside down on a clean tea towel to drip dry before polishing helps.
