spring party prep.

Hello, spring! After two weeks of unseasonably freezing temps, it’s beginning to warm up again. The weather has us in the mood to entertain, so we’re sharing our spring party essentials today. Because who’s not in the mood to throw a little party at home?

sparkling glassware and blue and white plates

We like to serve wine in short old-fashioned glasses, like these and these. Colorful plates (mine are Blue Italian Spode Dinnerware) perfectly complement spring’s colorful blooms.

Ice down beer and wine in a blue and white planter. Mine is on loan (permanently? eek) from my mother-in-law, but this one is super similar.

colorful cocktail napkins // well-loved tray

Display glassware and cocktail napkins (these and these from H&M are adorable and stupid cheap) on a pewter tray. I received this one as a wedding gift almost twelve years ago – it’s still available on Wayfair! – and we also like this simple one. A reptile tray would add sophisticated texture to a lacquered table, and this cute little pineapple tray is perfect for a cheeseball and crackers.

I’ve been using a basic acrylic ice bucket forever. This one by Kate Spade would be a nice upgrade! I’d also love this gold corkscrew (Mother’s Day is coming up…right?).
