Marble + Copper Entertaining Must-Haves

Before entertaining season is in full swing, be sure to gather a few entertaining must-have items to round out your collection. I like to add a couple new pieces every year. Last year I started collecting pieces that are marble and copper and I have loved using them each time I entertain. Here are a few recent marble and copper finds I plan on adding to my arsenal this season.

Marble and Copper Barware

One of my favorite elements of entertaining is setting the table. I love to get creative and mix new colors and textures together. This year I am all about adding these copper chargers to the mix. I think they will work year-round and can’t wait to try them out.

This marble and copper ice bucket combines two of my favorite (and super on-trend) elements.

The matching marble and copper wine chiller would look great sitting on any bar cart. This is something I definitely need (hint, hint Santa!). You could even gift a bottle of wine to really make a complete gift.

Speaking of wine, I am in love with my Winc wine club membership. The wine is super affordable and you can pick three bottles a month (try it out and get a free bottle on me). I like to stock up so that I am ready for any impromptu guests or celebrations.

This hammered copper barware set is a real statement gift. It’s handcrafted and will last a lifetime) that’s a lot of drink to be made!).

What do you think? Is marble and copper your thing? Which would you get first?

Oh hey hostess, before your  guests come over, you might want to check out the 6 things your party guests want you to know.

DIY Lip Scrub

Sugar scrubs are all the rage, and for good reason. They smell divine and work wonders on your skin. But what about your lips? This DIY lip scrub recipe came to mind because my smackers needed a little extra attention as well.

Make DIY Lip Scrub

This lip scrub is great if you have dry lips.  Made with natural oils that smell great and is simple to make (I promise!). I made a few to have on hand and gave a few away as gifts (thanks to these perfect little lip balm jars I found). I made these using lavender essential oils but you can swap out your favorite scent. I think orange would be great to use in the morning. Sounds fresh! To use the lip scrub, apply a small amount to your lips and then rub around a bit. Rinse off the scrub with warm water and a wash cloth and then apply your favorite lip balm once your done. I like to use mine at night and it helps get lipstick off as well which is a bonus! (more…)
