5 Things You Should Totally Have at Your Next Party!

Hosting is what I do best so when it comes to party essentials: booze, blooms and sweet treats - we've got you covered! Here's a list of 5 of my favorite things that you should totally have at your next party! 
1. Rosé Champagne -  by Nicolas Feuillatte!
To match the theme of our 5th birthday (Everything's Coming up Rosé) we filled champagne flutes to the brim with this delicious, sparkling rosé and honestly, it was one of the best rosés we've ever had!
We stocked the Madison Mixer bar cart and adorned the mini bottles with bright party hats for a playful touch!
Hand out individual champagne splits with a straw and mini party hats and I promise your party will be off to a roaring start! 
2. Indian River Grapefruit Spiked Seltzer - by Spiked Seltzer 
Boozy seltzer? Yes!! Our guests were delightfully surprised by the light and fresh fruit flavor of these bubbly bottles! We served each refreshing drink with these fun 10" gold metal straws! Drink alone or use as a mixer to kick the party up a notch! 
3. Macarons - by Dana's Bakery
Not only are macarons beautiful to photograph (edible party decor if you ask us!), they were so tasty as well! We opted for the perfectly pink Strawberry Shortcake macarons as well as the sparkly Champagne Celebration macarons, but how fun would these be at your next party?
4. Brownie Bites by Bird Bakery!
These adorable bite size brownies, playfully packaged in egg cartons were a huge hit!  Everyone who tried them thought they were absolutely amazing. One guest even ate a whole dozen in one sitting! Yes, they are that good. 
Don't forget party favors! They are always a lovely touch and don't have to be fancy. We sent guests home with two Bird's Bakery brownie bars in each goodie bag as a sweet snack for later! Try attaching a note to party favors for a personalized touch. We tied ours up with a notecard featuring one Society Social Entertaining Tip: What doesn't kill you, makes you interesting at parties! 
5. Radiant Pink Fiesta Roses by FTD Flowers
Decorating with fresh flowers is always a good idea. It's easy and doesn't have to be hard on your budget! I absolutely love these kaleidoscope inspired roses which offer a new spin on the standard rose bouquet. They boast a dyeing technique that changes the color from petal to petal! We carefully arranged the flowers, scattering bursting bouquets and delicate bud vases throughout our space.
I hope you try out one of my 5 favorite things! I would love to hear if you do :) Don't forget to Decorate to Entertain!
