    Sweetest Valentine's Day Cocktail by Fashionable Hostess8

    When it comes to hosting a special event, you want cocktails that will have your guests oooh-ing and ahhh-ing, so in today’s post I wanted to share some of the prettiest cocktails I have made over the last year on Fashionable Hostess that will do just the trick! Here they are… Starting with the images above… the prettiest drinks of all can actually be the result of over-the-top garnish! Here I took champagne glasses, dipped the rim in honey and then followed immediately with gold sugar to make this beautiful sugar rim {which of course is edible!!}. After filling with rosé champagne,…

    Today’s Dinner Party Spotlight guest is Tamara Anka, the blogger, interior decorator, illustrator, and more, behind CitrineLiving.com. Tamara has a knack for anything home decor related and her blog is a must-see for any Pinterest lover {I am a huge fan of her seasonal Home Tours}! When I asked Tamara if she would open up her “oh so elegant” dining room to FH readers, and she accepted, I knew it would be something sleek and elegant.

    This past weekend I hosted the #BloomingenBlanc Party in the Hamptons. My co-hosts were NYC Lifestyle Blogger Lauren Nelson and founder of Flower Crown company Crowns by Christy, Christy Doramus.

    With the end of summer just around the corner, I am truly planning to live it up the next few weekends, and I hope today’s post inspires you todo the same.

Set the table with bright plates and rather than flowers, use pineapples for centerpieces! See more in this post. Olé! Take your drinks…

  5. Bridal Shower Bar Cart


    As a follow up to the prettiest week in my blog’s history {see my bridal shower post here and my champagne and macaron dessert buffet here}, I am wrapping up the week with a bar cart/ drink station display to complete the look. Given that it’s summer time, I wanted something seasonally fun, so I chose a classic Cipriani Bellini for my cocktail. You probably remember I went to Italy earlier this summer {see a recap on my blog here} and I have to say that I quickly fell in love with the aperitif and have been drinking them ever since! Oh, and they are…
