Fill it with pasta, popcorn, or salad. But you need this.
Party instantly elevated.
May the conversation be deep and this dish shallow.
For your centerpiece and scattered florals needs. Snag 3-10 of each style.
Different than the ones you drop your lavender bath bomb in.
Staples to keep those hands dry and save greasy shrimp fingers.
Don’t be a square. At least when displaying your apps.
At this point…you can’t not have one at your party.
9. Ribbon for napkin ring (easier than napkin ring)
The DIY that instantly shows your effort. Don’t tell them how easy it was.
So your snacks can move when the party moves to the next room.
11. Water pitcher
May they all remain hydrated.
12. Ice bucket
So chill. Well, at least your drinks will be.
To complement the clear vases. To fill with blossoms of every season.
Fueling the fun one glass at a time.

Grab a lot. Like ten. Lighter than serving ware and easier to use.
Investing in staples for entertaining truly does pay off because you will use them over and over again. The amount of time you will save on hosting decisions will have these products more than paying for themselves. Did we express the disclaimer that hosting may be a tad addicting? No stress, you’re in good hands.
Throw on those argyle sweaters and ski bunny puffers to enjoy some cocktails that rival a black diamond. This is a late night cocktail party sure to impress.

A retro Christmas shindig with all the flair! Bright pops of color, metallic sheen, irresistible dishes and drinks that will make you flip your lid!
Where a cozy fire and shimmery linens go hand-in-hand to bring to life that perfect winter gathering. Start off the season of 'get togethers' with classic cocktails and a warm, wintry fireplace.
(Gingerbread) House Party
Oh Snap! Kids and adults alike will love getting together to build and decorate gingerbread houses to get in the holiday spirit! Playing with your food knows no age.
Cinnamon Spice and All Things Naughty and Nice
A flirty, naughty, not-nice affair. Drink an extra cocktail and you may forget Santa’s bringing you coal this year. Makes a great late-night gathering.
