cocktail-party

The end of August brings with it a change of party scenes. We move from BBQ’s to cocktails as quickly as the days start to dwindle into evenings. I am a big fan of hosting cocktail parties. The prep is wonderfully uninvolved for a busy fall evening… Stock the bar, pick a signature drink, set out a little cheese and you are ready to party.

Since we don’t tend to decorate as much for these dimly lit parties – the details (drink stirs and glass markers) become super important. There are so many fun and easy ways to up that drink marker game. Here are 20 that I am loving right now:
