Party ‘Successories’

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

I am well past the stage in my life to do any type of formal hosting. I much prefer to invite friends and family over to share some great wine/martini/champagne with a variety of tapas. This does not mean I don’t like to make it fun for my guests. Here is a list of fun party ‘successories’ – products that will make any gathering a success – that your guest will enjoy as much as you do:

  Drink Flair – There are lots of options for glass labeling on the market, but these static stickers are inexpensive, reusable and can add a fun tone to the party. Buy directly from DrinkFlair for $5.00 + Shipping (Buy any 3 and get Free Shipping).
  Wine Glass Clips – Give your guest a free hand with these handy wine clips. Use on any individual plate or clip around a platter to serve your guest a glass of wine with an appetizer. Buy here for $6.99 for a set of 6.
  Wine Holder Plates – Here are some festive appetizer plates with a place for your wine glass. They have convenient thumb indentation that makes for easy holding. Choose from holiday theme, plain or personalized. GiftedGrape carries them for $16.95 for a set of 4.
  Cheese and Wine Plate – Having just a wine and cheese party? Here are some sustainable bamboo planks in the shape of a wine bottle. Buy from EcoBayHome. Set of 4 for $38.00.
  Holiday Embellished Plates and Platters – Add a festive touch to the holiday tablescape with these tree or stocking embellished plates. Perfect for little desserts or appetizers. See CotonColor’s entire line here. Plate for $21.95.
  Plate Stands – Love these stands to add to a tablescape. The silicone suction will keep any plate or platter securely on the porcelain stands. Two sizes available. Buy directly from FusionBrands for $20.00 and $30.00.
