I got three decanters from Bib & Sola.  I really liked the way they looked.  I love drinking out of glass bottles and thought I would do the same with these.  Somehow I guess I didn’t read everything because the decanter did not come with a glass top.  It is a tumbler that is sold separately.  I like my glass bottles to have lids so that I don’t have to worry about things falling in the water or it taking on a taste of other food in the refrigerator.

We went to IKEA a few weeks ago and I got my first bamboo plant.  It is most commonly known as “lucky bamboo.”  Lucky bamboo can be planted in soil or water.  I love the looks of these plants when they are in clear containers with colored glass rocks at the bottom.  I came across red “gems” (that is what S calls them) when I was organizing the toys present cabinet.  I knew the two would go together perfectly.   Since we have pops of red throughout our house as our “accent” color those glass colored rocks would be a perfect touch.


I received the Bib & Sola water decanter in blue, rose purple, and white.  There was not a ton of white on the decanter so I really liked the effect of it.  It is recommended when planting a lucky bamboo in water to use distilled water or tap water that has sat out over night to let the fluoride and chlorine evaporate.  S and P wanted to help in this whole process so I poured water into the decanter that I let sit out overnight and let them put the red glass stones in the decanter.  I wanted the water put in first because I was afraid they would break the decanter if they dumped the stones in too hard or fast.


After the kids added some stones to the water decanter I stuck in the bamboo plant and then had the kids put more stones around the roots and plant to hold it upright.  I thought it would take the whole container of glass stones, but we only ended up using about ¾ of the container.  I love the final product and how it turned out.  It is a great decoration that now sits on the lazy Susan on our kitchen table.


Bib & Sola Hand Blown Glass Water Decanters are made of handmade blown glass.  No two are alike.  The decanter is a great way to drink water and not use plastic which is the goal of Bib & Sola.  Each decanter holds 1.2 L of liquid which is about 4-5 drinking glasses.  The decanters come in 7 different colors, black, blue, orange, red, rose purple, white, and yellow.
