Only the inexperienced view the fall as merely a change of seasons. In reality, fall is merely the calm before the storm of entertaining and hosting that comes with the fast-approaching holiday season.
Those hostesses who aspire to have the most-est know that now is the perfect time to start planning for all those parties. You have some time to get things ready, and you can tune up for Thanksgiving with the big December holidays with a Halloween party, and maybe having some people over to watch football. And Things Remembered has a collection of items that can help you knock the rust off of your party-throwing abilities while adding a personal touch to your entertaining.
MIX UP SOME FUN
Most of your guests will be making a visit to your bar area, so an upgrade to your cocktail making station never goes amiss. The Things Remembered Three-Piece Bar will help give your in-house mixologist some swagger. With a decorated mixing glass, a stainless steel shaker, and a shot glass, you’re already half way to the perfect cocktail. It even comes complete with a booklet of drink recipes will get you the rest of the way there. Of course, you can engrave one or all three of these pieces with a phrase or the name of your in-house bar.
HANDY TOOLS FOR COCKTAIL MASTERS
Things Remembered also has something that can help keep your bartender cranking out the cocktails in style – all while reducing clutter around the bar (an added bonus). It’s our 10-in-One Bar10l, and it has everything you need to whip up any drink you can imagine. This handy, device has a jigger, a reamer, a muddler, a zester, a corkscrew, and five other useful tools – and still fits right in your hand. Personalize it to match your other bar set, or get a friend’s name put on it to make the perfect gift to bring to any party hosted by a neighbor.
SNACKS ON SNACKS
No party is complete without snacks, and you can serve them to your guest in style with the Things Remembered Soapstone tray. Made in the USA from recycled soapstone, this versatile dish can go directly from the oven to the table, keeping dirty dishes to a minimum – always a plus when entertaining. And don’t forget to put a personal stamp on this tray by adding a fun phrase or your monogram.
DISPLAY GIFTS ELEGANTLY
As a hostess, you’re sure to be receiving lots of fresh flowers from arriving guests. And our Engraved Tall Glass Vase help you turn those flowers into an unforgettable party centerpiece. You can customize it just for your party hosting by adding your monogram or a special saying.
At some point during the upcoming holiday party season, wine is sure to make an appearance. And the ideal way to share it with your guests is our Reidel Vinum Cabernet Merlot Wine Glasses. These sleek, modern glasses are made from non-leaded crystal and holds 21 ounces of your favorite vintage. Be sure to engrave your set of six glasses with a monogram or phrase that puts everyone in the party spirit.
Don’t while away your fall watching football. Put this time to use to start prepping for the coming party season, and you’ll be ready to knock off your guests collective socks, whether they’re family or friends.
