Mostess Signature Cocktail Napkins

Entertaining made beautiful with these 100% linen Bumble Bee cocktail napkins from the Mostess Celebrate Spring Box.

Bee-autiful

When I started curating our Celebrate Spring Box, I wanted to showcase bumbles bees in both a traditional hosting piece and with honey.  I found a practical and cute twist on honey with Bee Local Honey Sticks. Once I found these, I set out to incorporate bumble bees into one of the most iconic and traditional hosting staples: the cocktail napkin. 

THE design

I found an amazing designer in Katy Michele Designs, and after a few drafts, we came up the perfect napkin. Katy Michele is based out of Oklahoma and specializes in embroidery (her collection of linen napkins is swoon-worthy).  She expertly blended a traditional and whimsical design into our 100% linen napkins. Before sending them our way, she hand pressed each and every one of them.  They are perfect for entertaining this Spring and look delightful on a bar cart! 

A set of four is included in each Celebrate Spring Box.

Sweet Treats

A celebration is not complete without something sweet! To keep things simple, I purchased a plain vanilla cake and added my own homemade Lavender Lemon Icing using Royal Rose Syrups. I decorated the cake with culinary lavender and drizzled it with Bee Local Honey Sticks for a rustic look. No baking required!

A Crowd Pleaser

Keep things simple by providing a fun, fresh beverage that will please just about anyone.  What better drink than lemonade? I added a little twist by using Royal Rose's Lavender Lemonade recipe. Garnish with a lemon wheel and you are good to go. Fancy an adult beverage? This lemonade pairs splendidly with vodka or gin.

Stock the Bubbly

It's always a nice gesture to offer champagne or prosecco when hosting a celebration.  I like to keep mine ready to go on a nearby buffet table or barcart. Keep your Viski Style Champagne Puller on-hand to make opening a bottle a breeze!

Lavender Lemon Icing

Simple and Fresh for Spring!

Today I am sharing an effortless way to bring a homemade twist using Lavender Lemon Syrup and three other items from our Celebrate Spring Box. 

I searched long and wide for a versatile, high quality simple syrup for our Celebrate Spring Box - and I found it with Royal Rose Syrups.  Not only do they make a high quality product (it is USDA certified organic), but the syrup can be used in tea, coffee, and baking!

I searched far and wide for a high quality simple syrup for our Celebrate Spring Box - and I found it with Royal Rose Syrups.  Not only do they make a high quality product (it is USDA certified organic), but the syrup can be used in tea, coffee, and baking!

This coveted syrup quickly became my favorite flavor profile for Spring. Better yet – using it to make delicious Lavender Lemon Icing has become my new must have for any baked good. 

We mixed up a batch and styled a few photos at our temporary “test kitchen" inside the stunning model home from OnPoint Custom Homes!

Enjoy the photos – but most all, grab a Celebrate Spring Box, whip up this icing, and impress your guests. It is divine on sugar cookies and sprinkled with lemon zest! I included the recipe and the items I used to style these photos below.

Spring Glassware

Recycled Glass - a spring must have

One of my favorite elements this Spring is recycled glassware.  It brings a fresh organic look to any table. This season Mostess partnered with Bambeco to bring you a set of 4 Recycled Shot Glasses in our Celebrate Spring Box (pictured above). We loved them so much that we styled them as bud vases to create a beautiful spring centerpiece!

This week, we are teaming up with Bambeco and giving away a matching set of Recycled Glass Tumblers and Pitcher! And guess what? We are throwing in a Celebrate Spring Box too. To enter the giveaway, visit our Instagram and follow the three easy steps included in our latest post! 

Pssst: Look familiar? The two photos below are the Recycled Glass Tumblers.  We used them in our 2016 Spring Box photoshoot!

Celebrate Spring! Appetizer

Mostess Easy Breezy Spring Appetizer

Shopping List



Brie Cheese
Dried Apricots
Almonds

Celebrate Spring Items

Rosanna Porcelain Tray
Bee Local Honey Sticks
Two Bambeco Recycled Glasses
Mostess Signature Cocktail Napkins

Effortless Entertaining

Using items from your Celebrate Spring Box, arrange cheese, apricots, and almonds on your Rosanna Tray. Drizzle one Bee Local Honey Stick over the brie cheese and set remaining sticks in a Bambeco Glass. Place your Mostess Signature Cocktail Napkins next to the tray. For an added touch, trim a few flowers and place in a second Bambeco Glass. Voila! Ready to serve. 

This easy appetizer not only looks beautiful but is a breeze to pull together.  By adding extra honey sticks, you give guests the option to drizzle on more honey as they please!

Special Note

If you have been a follower of Mostess for a while - you will notice I used one of the Rosanna Nesting Bowls to hold the almonds. These bowls were available in both our VIP and Founder's Boxes.  You can expand on this appetizer by displaying your full set of nesting bowl and adding in some extra things to munch on like pistachios and blueberries. Yum!
