As Cayman Airways fêtes its Golden Anniversary, we compiled a few glittering goodies that are certainly worthy of a celebration. Transform your kitchen into a swanky cocktail bar reminiscent of a five-star hotel (hello, Ritz-Carlton!) with a few key accessories like over-the-top Champagne buckets that will ensure your bottle of bubbly (or rosé Limoux, in this case) will stay cool once you pop off the cork, ceremonial style. Just as fashion cycles over the decades, so does stemware — particularly that of the Champagne variety. Of course, you can also honour an occasion with something other than bubbles, sporting a timeless accessory like a Cartier watch that will certainly turn eyes as you strut around the island.
The ultimate proof that fashion never fades, Cartier’s classic design from the 1980s takes on a modern twist with a double loop of golden links. Available at Boutique Cartier
Cayman in George Town.
With a bottle inspired by the Paris Opéra Garnier ballet dancers, Gérard Bertrand’s sparkling rosé (a.k.a. Crémant de Limoux), Ballerine, is a gorgeous alternative to standard Champagne that’s perfect for any summertime celebration. Available at Jacques Scott Wine & Spirits, multiple locations.
Instead of stashing away that celebratory bottle of bubbly in the fridge, put it on prime display in Baccarat’s crystal-covered Champagne bucket, which doubles as an elegant table centrepiece. Available at Kirk Freeport, multiple locations.
Polished brass accents add just the right amount of gold to a transparent tray making for a modernised Art Deco design that’s stylish enough for the bar yet practical enough for a bathroom vanity. Available at jonathanadler.com.
Switch out a basic decanter for a more eye-catching piece of barware like LALIQUE’s stunning cylindrical crystal design that’s sure to stand out on a bar cart. Available at Kirk Freeport, multiple locations.
Toast with a set of stemware just as special as the big day itself with sequin-patterned Champagne saucers inspired by the very same embellishments gracing Vera Wang’s bridal gowns. Available at Kirk Freeport, multiple locations.
