We all love putting on a party, whether its a cosy gathering of close girlfriends or a bigger bash for the whole gang. But tidying up your pad and buying in the booze doesn’t always cut-it - sometimes you’ve got to wow your guests with gorgeous drink accessories or impressive cocktail kits - or even add a little hi-jinx to your get-together with some novelty items. The fun starts here…!
Drinking straws: can’t live with them, can’t live without them. Much as we love a jazzy straw in a fabulous cocktail however, we’re firmly joining the eco-conscious consensus and banishing the plastic straw to the scrap-heap of environmental mistakes - no drink is worth the life of the earth’s beautiful marine creatures. But, despair not - the age of the stainless steel straw is upon us! With a clear conscience we can now sip our concoctions through the night, and then simply wash and repeat! Choose from classic, red striped or two-toned rainbow colours, to keep your cocktail parties stylish and environmentally friendly.
Gin + tonic does not = a cocktail. Neither does vodka + coke. And no, I’m afraid vodka + orange juice isn’t strictly a cocktail either, just because its called a Screwdriver. If you want to impress your guests with cocktail concoctions, you’re going to need to invest in a set. The good news is, it doesn’t have to break the bank! For under £10, our Rose Gold Cocktail Set is utterly gorgeous (even if you never get around to using it, it will still look stunning on display) and will help you to get creative with shaking and stirring on a Saturday night. Move over Screwdriver, its time for the Martini to shine!
The house party is always enlivened by a few novelty drinking objects - catch your guests out with oversized pint glasses and gin goblets (after a few bevvies they’ll think they’ve lost the plot!) or offer to open their beers with the Doiy Houston Bottle Opener - which doubles up as a chic, Space Age, ornament, perfect for decorating your desk or adorning a bookcase - that’s one small step in party prep, and one giant leap in hostess points!
