How To: Be the Hostess with the Most-est

The holiday season is fast approaching and with it, those endless festive fêtes… Feeling overwhelmed already? Never fear! We’ve picked some of our favorite hosting tips to share so you can get ahead of party planning.

1. Dress to Impress

And most importantly to be comfortable!!
Our new Ball Skirt (pictured above) is fabulous and comfy…the perfect piece to play hostess in. With two different length options, you can make a statement in heels or run around in flats (all ethically produced, thank you very much).
What you wear sets the tone of your get together!

2. Choose a Theme

We’re not talking about a Prom theme here, picking a theme can often help streamline your party planning and keep you on track. Old Hollywood Glamour, Rustic Forest, or Tropical Getaway…simple or elaborate, themes help reflect the vibe you want to set and also help your guests get in the mood! Pinterest has got you covered with tons of ideas and how-to’s.
Kick it up a notch by tying in everything from invitations to table settings for an even more memorable event.

3. Create a Signature Cocktail

Another way to make your party stand out from the rest is to dedicate an area within your kitchen or dining as a “home bar” featuring your favorite cocktail! Instead of playing bartender all night, having a big batch of something festive prepared like this Winter Cranberry Martini is an easy way to shake up your typical wine and beer offerings.

4. Consider Some Favors

Going along with your chosen theme, party favors don’t have to be expensive or extravagant. Small pots of herbs or succulents make a great takeaway - even sending out some home-baked goods cleverly wrapped can make an impact.

5. K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, sweetheart)

Always remember to s i m p l i f y so you can stay calm and actually enjoy your event too!
