How to throw a Fun {easy} Cocktail Party


Step 1:

Create your guest list and send an invitation (we still totally love & appreciate good ol’ invitations in the mail... who doesn’t love receiving an invitation, particularly during the holiday season?!

we make it easy & fun to order invitations, too! For just $2.00 an invite, you can choose from our collection of invitation inspiration or create your own! No minimum either- so invite 2 or 200, we’ve got you covered!

Step 2:

Create your menu!

the best thing about a cocktail party is all you need are hors d’oeuvres and Small bites for your guests! This can all be done on a budget

signature drink , which we believe you can never go wrong with some bottles of bubbly ! suggest grabbing some bottles

Step 3:

Add the Pizzazz!

A few of our favorite easy ways to add pizzazz (without breaking the bank) are:

  • Put out funny cocktail napkins as conversation starters. Make extra personal by giving each girl her own pack to go home with!

  • Have your guests use a cup they can go home with! Currently loving our new reusable collection that you can get a box of 12 of for $19.95 and just add $10.00 for personalization!

  • Sweet treats are always a great takeaway. Give each guest a small Sugarfina and even use as a placecard setting! Or sample our new Candy Club and create take-away goody bags!

Step 4:

Have fun!

The key to any party is for YOU, the host, to enjoy as well. Remember a cocktail party should be about good times with great friends. Stress free celebrating = our kind of cocktail party

Guest Blog: Friendsgiving Swoo-torial

20171109-IMG_9743 copy.jpg

Two weeks ago I was asked to teach some tips for hosting Friendsgiving at Swoozie's in Buckhead. I absolutely adore all things Swoozie's and I was so excited to host an event with this talented team.  I love a pop in to this fabulous shop whenever I have time.  They literally have everything you need for gifts and hosting and when you leave you have a pep in your step and a wrapped gift ready to give.

What more would you need?


It was such a fun evening.  Surrounded by such fun and lovely women I talked about my love for entertaining and hosting.  I shared some tips to keep it simple and to hopefully alleviate the stress of having people over and allow you to truly enjoy the people you have chosen to include.


First and foremost, as always, I suggest having a Signature Cocktail prepared to get them started for the evening.  Setting the bar cart with a drink and a snack or two is my favorite way to greet guests.  It frees you up to greet all of your guests and allows them to serve themselves when they arrive.  Just set it up, point them in the right direction and let the magic begin.


Our drink for the evening was a fall punch I mixed and served from my vintage punch bowl.  I am a huge proponent of serving (and enjoying) punch!  It is easy to make and when served with an ice ring makes such an impression.  Using Cathead Pecan Vodka as a base I mixed in a berry juice, ginger beer and sparkling soda for a delicious result that wasn't too heavy or spicy but just right for the chilly evening.  The ice ring made it fabulous with sliced lemons, cranberries and rosemary sprigs.  It was truly delicious and only the fruit was left when the event was over.  I call that a #win.


As they sipped and snacked I chatted about setting a table and some tips to make the evening stress free for the hostess.  I set the table with one of my favorite tablecloths and added this paper runner in green stripes for a wonderful mix of color.  I love blue + green together and it was the perfect backdrop for some blue and white pottery and fresh magnolia.  Easy, yet beautiful.  Add in a mix of my favorite gold bamboo flatware and plastic and some darling monogram napkins and you have the perfect table.


The center of the table was left open for an appetizer on this darling board.  You can't see the personalization but it is monogrammed with Casa de Minear and will quickly become a favorite for me.  I love a good cheese board and this one with the handle and the marble is fabulous.  For the event we added two cheeses, a few crackers and some berries.  Easy appetizer to create and oh so yummy to devour. We added some bowls of my favorite cheese crisps and the combination of the appetizer and the little snacks are perfect to get the conversation flowing and give them a bite to tide them over until you serve dinner.


The rest of the table was set with a mix of my everyday china and a set of these fabulous paper china plates.  They were so stunning in the grouping and I love the easy clean up that paper provides.  Why not make it easy on yourself and your guests?  I am completely up for all things paper when entertaining ... it truly makes all the difference and good paper and plastic products are worth the investment.  I love all things Sophistiplate.

One of my favorite elements of the table I set were the darling glasses I chose to use as the evening sursie.  Catstudio has the most darling glasses and Swoozie's carries the Atlanta and Georgia glasses and these were perfect for gifting.  I love to gift something to my guests that they will see and use and remember our time together.  I came home with one of each and seeing them reminds me of such a wonderful evening with new friends.


Are you hosting Friendsgiving this year?  I have some tips to share above along with the recipe for my Fall Punch that might make your soireé easier.  I will be taking this delicious and easy punch to Blue Ridge for Thanksgiving with Lawyer's family and I know they will love it. It is truly so yummy and has a delicious combination of the spice pecan combined with the bite of ginger to make it absolutely perfect for fall!!

I will be popping up at Swoozie's again in December for a girls night in event and I would love to have you join me.  We had such a great turn out for this event and I know the next will be just as fun, especially since we will be playing Prosecco Pong and having bubbly from the Prosecco Bar I will be creating!


Happy Monday!!

GUEST BLOG: The Scribble Studio - Solar Eclipse Soirée

Haven't we all wanted to throw a day party surrounded by endless moon and star décor? I know I have! This month's long-awaited solar eclipse gave me the perfect excuse to call on a few of my girlfriends, string up some gorgeous garlands, fill the tables with confetti and delectably curated confections, and unashamedly toss back a few day drinks. I know the solar eclipse isn't officially until August 21st, but since the event falls on a Monday, I thought a Saturday soirée was the perfect idea to get everyone even more stoked about the occasion while offering a little inspiration to those of you who are still planning! It all begins with details...

The Location

Since the whole party revolved around the idea of the solar eclipse, I decided from the beginning that the party had to be outside. I imagined somewhere simple, natural and a location that not many people knew about in order to create some excitement among the guests for getting to visit somewhere new. With this in mind, I knew the Sans Souci Community Garden in Greenville's quaint Sans Souci neighborhood would be the ideal spot. The grass was freshly cut, the veggies, flowers and herbs were abundantly blooming and it was a truly euphoric location.


The Invitation

When I started planning the solar eclipse soirée, I knew invitations would be my first big impression on all my guests. So, with a simple idea in mind, I created the watercolor galaxy background and then added gilded gold hand-lettering to make it special. As if that wasn't enough, I shredded the sides of each invitation and hand-dipped it in 14-karat gold dust to give it a little something extra. Was it time-consuming? Sure. Was it worth it? Absolutely.

The Decor


The Party Cocktail

One of my favorite summer bevs is a Moscow Mule, so I decided to give it a twist to make it fit into the party theme. When creating this delicious concoction, I made a list of the ingredients that I thought would be delicious in the drink and what would make it somewhat different than your average mule. While ginger beer and bitters were still in the cards, I added a blueberry and lavender simple syrupinstead of lime or lime juice. I opted vodka over rum for the sake of everything blending together in a more graceful way. However, these weren't just any old brands of these products chosen to create this crazy drink. I hand-picked each component of this drink and they are all hand-crafted, small batch and small businesses that have an amazing product. Here's the recipe...

Moon + Stars Mule

Place 2-3 Lavender Infused Ice Cubes in Glass

Combine in a Shaker :

2 oz. Small Batch Vodka from St. Augustine Distillery

1 oz. Belvoir Fruit Farms Ginger Beer

1 oz. Sallie's Greatest Blueberry + Lavender Simple Syrup

2-3 drops of Fee Brothers Bitters

Shake accordingly

Pour over Lavender Ice Cubes

Garnish with a Lavender Sprig

The Table Accompaniments


Finding food and beverages to accentuate the theme came as a super easy task because everyone I found had such great products. I knew I wanted a beverage nook with the featured party cocktail as an option, but I also wanted to have a few additional options available as well to accommodate the guests who wanted to indulge in a non-alcoholic beverage. This beverage nook sported everything from white wine to Belvoir's Ginger Beer to Sallie's Greatest Blueberry + Lavender simple syrup infused water and our featured Moon + Stars Mule. Amidst the gorgeous star plates, gilded napkins, pretty drink cups and confetti on the tables, we had overflowing buckets of Poppy Cotton Candy Hand-crafted Popcorncookies and cake pops from The Chocolate Moose and endless tiers of Malvi Mallows in dozens of different flavors.

Sugarfina: Candy + Cocktails - YES, Please!

The Swoo Crew loves a good cocktail, which is why we installed a mini-fridge to hold plenty of champs and rose’ for impromptu brainstorming sessions and photo shoots! More importantly, we love discovering new tasty cocktail recipes, particularly during this time of year when the weather is warm and cold cocktails can just hit the spot on a patio or at a party with friends. 

So, let’s just say, when we discovered our fav luxury candy brand, Sugarfina, their cocktail inspired candies were the perfect reason for us to get brainstorming {insert happy hour now!}. 

We set out on a mission to create tasty cocktails that could be paired with these cocktail gummies for the perfect duo to serve at your next adult celebration! We chose four of our favorites and best-selling flavors: Sugarfina’s Bourbon Bears, Rose’ Roses, Bubbly Bears and Peach Bellini, for inspiration to recreate yummy cocktails for your next occasion!

GUEST BLOG: Cactus Fiesta Party

Is anyone as excited as we are to celebrate Cinco De Mayo this Friday?! We love any excuse to throw a good fiesta, so when our friend, Amy, of Amy’s Party Ideas decided to host a cactus-themed fiesta using our Fiesta Like There’s No Manana collection, we couldn’t wait to share with you.

Whether you’re planning to celebrate on Cinco de Mayo or are planning a Fiesta themed girls’ night out – read on for festive tips, tricks and inspiration!

Let’s fiesta!  I love any reason to eat tacos and celebrate, and on my last visit to Swoozie’s  I fell in love with their fiesta products!  This year for Cinco de Mayo, I am hosting a cactus themed fiesta and I can’t wait to show you how it all came together!  So grab a taco and some guac, and get planning! I will share more after the photos, and be sure to see my favorite products for your fiesta down below.  Live every day like it’s Taco Tuesday friends!

Set the tone for your celebration with a cactus themed invitation.  I adore this one from Swoozie’s!  I love to set the table for my friends and when you can keep food on the table, you spend less time in the kitchen and more time hanging with your friends.  And everyone can keep eating without having to get up to find more food.  When we are dining outdoors shatterproof glasses are a must, and these personalized govino glasses are just what is needed.  I love the palm leaf vinyl personalization too!

When planning my centerpiece, I let the food be the star and filled in with a floral arrangement I made using unique offerings from my local flower shop.  A cactus in an empty Mexican food can, and a really pretty cactus from the local big box hardware store add to our theme.

I just love the food truck centerpiece!  I decided to serve fresh fruit in paper cones on the top of the food truck. (A tip: I put ice cream cones in each paper cone to help keep the moisture from saturating the paper.) I served Mexican street corn on the bottom layer, and offered fresh limes as garnish for the corn on the middle layer.  A plate of fish tacos with honey lime cabbage slaw and fresh mango salsa added to the tablescape. And a bowl of fresh guacamole and tortilla chips rounded out our menu.

Mini pinatas make great favors and place cards complete each place setting.  A little humor is always fun.  I love the napkins that say “My head says GYM but my heart says TACOS”….seriously!  There is no shortage of witty products at Swoozie’s. Keep an ice bucket full of beverages nearby,  and vow to live every day like it’s Taco Tuesday my friends!

How are you planning to celebrate this year?  And what is your favorite Mexican food to eat?

Christmas and the holidays have a whole new meaning now that our Adair Lucille is running around, bursting with personality, and constantly getting into mischief.

Vintage Blues, Pinks, and Greens, on tinsel trees have me bursting at the seams to create tablescapes that are kiddo friendly, while also keeping adults in mind. 

This is the first stop in our series, showcasing this tablescape, all the fixin's, and a few DIY gifting ideas from me and my creative friends!
