Champagne & Dessert Party

Champagne & Dessert Party 2

The summer has officially arrived and hosting gatherings filled with afternoon cocktails and al fresco dining is what it’s all about. Today we will begin a series of simple, yet fashionable party ideas to spark your hostess instincts. Let’s turn your good ole’ summer BBQ into a Burger Bash Extravaganza. Oh, yes and how could we forget the craft beer pairings. I mean, what’s a good burger without an ice-cold beer?

So, prepare yourself for the creative party themes that will have your guests coming back time and time again.

Now what’s on today’s agenda, you ask? Two words: champs and dessert! Simple, yet super fun! The next time you’re in the mood to host {which should be always!}, stop in at your local bakery, pick up some goodies, and pop that bottle of champagne that’s been collecting dust. Instant p-a-r-t-e-e!

Need a list of yummy bakeries; here are some of my faves!

  • Magnolia Bakery {Manhattan, NY)—It’s a NYC staple and their banana pudding is too die for!
  • Dulce De Leche Bakery {West New York, NJ}—where I bought all my goodies, so need I say more?!
  • Bottega Louie {Los Angeles, California}—Macaroons, macaroons, macaroons! Oh, how I love thee!
  • Delightful Pastries {Chicago, Illinois}— Ridiculously amazing donuts that will have you going gaga!

Oh and of course, you can use this soiree idea for a girlfriend’s birthday, your best friend’s engagement gathering, or just like I did. For no reason other than because I needed to entice my girlfriends to come on over!

Hope you all are inspired to host your very own. Happy entertaining #eventfashionistas!

get elated!
