Add a playful pop of colour to your glassware with this super-quick trick. Simply cut off the skinny stem of a balloon and then snip off about a quarter inch from the other end. Pull the balloon over the bottom of your glass and — ta-da! — you’redone. They’re perfect for outdoor parties: Each guest can claim their own colour, and each glass has a little more grip.
