Condiment Containers

Put a Ring on It

Way to Celebrate

If you often break out the caviar for New Year’s Eve, anniversary or other special occasions you’ll want something that’s both attractive and practical to serve it. With six vodka glasses, a silver plate and horn spoon, it’s all you need to create an amazing caviar spread. And if you’re looking for the best spots to place your caviar order, we recommend Caviar Russe and Russ & Daughter’s. Caviar Server Set, $400, Barneys New York

Everything but Cheesy
