"Product was a bit smaller than I thought but still very nice. Would not put more than two bottles of Champers and ice at a time as otherwise a bit fragile on its leg. Got lots of compliments though and friends are now borrowing it for their cocktail parties. Looks very smart and you can even leave it standing around living-room as "normal" decoration.
Regarding Drinkstuff, the delivery time was excellent, but very strange way of packaging; 100s of small boxes within one big box - recycling their stuff I guess."

Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Cornelia. Our packaging varies depending on the product being sent. In this instance we have used our own recycled cardboard. We believe this provides good protection to the product in transit and excellent use of waste cardboard. Please read our packaging information page

"These are fantastic and I got a lot of compliments about them and enquiries about where I got them from. My only gripe would be that when full, (I used mine as a party decoration - filled with glass marbles, empty coloured vodka bottles and tealights) they can be a little unstable especially if it is windy and they are being used outside. In the end they didn't fall over, but it did concern me slightly for a while - however, they do look fantastic and were a great talking point. Later on the evening they were used a party bowl and worked really well when filled with Cosmopolitan and extra long straws!"

Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Jenny. We do state on our website that it is recommend that you only fill them two thirds full since they may become top heavy.
"What an amazing present! Bought it for the other half's birthday and you should have seen the look on her face. A definite talking point when friends are round and perfect as a punch bowl. Would definitely recommend this item."
