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!

Celebrate Spring! FULL REVEAL

CELEBRATE SPRING BOX

Spring doesn't technically start until March, but at Mostess we are celebrating early! Our 2017 Celebrate Spring Box is here and ready to party. I curated this box around light and airy hosting elements that compliment the season. A chilled bottle of champagne and a fresh bouquet of tulips are all you need to make this box the perfect accent for spring gatherings.

Each box is wrapped in our signature packaging and includes six seasonally curated products, original recipes, and entertaining tips.  My personal favorite is the gold Viski Belmont Champagne Puller. This chic bar cart item has become a must-have in my home.  Did I mention it matches the gold Viski Belmont Cocktail Shaker and Strainer from our Winter Box? 

FREE shipping and handling on all orders makes this box the PERFECT gift. Enjoy!

If you subscribe to a Mostess Membership plan before March 1st, your Celebrate Spring Box will be the first to ship out. We also offer Single Boxes that are perfect for gifting or to treat yourself!

Take a look at how we style the Celebrate Spring Box!

Celebrate Spring! Theme Reveal

Spring is officially in the air!

 

Throw open the windows and chill the champagne! We are ready to CELEBRATE SPRING at Mostess headquarters. I curated our 2017 Spring Box to compliment - and most of all - CELEBRATE any occasion this Spring: weddings, birthdays, Easter brunch, bridal showers, baby showers, engagement parties, graduation, Mother's Day, or house warming parties (just to name a few)! I also wanted to make this box a must have for anyone seeking a thoughtful thank you gift for a gracious host, dear friend, or bridesmaids! 

The Celebrate Spring Box is themed around neutral, light, and airy elements that are sure to please any crowd. It pairs beautifully with fresh flowers, sweet treats, and a chilled bottle of bubbly. This box is extra special because I tailored it based on your feedback! I kept getting requests asking if we could include products to either match or compliment products from past boxes. And guess what? I did just that. The Celebrate Spring Box includes two products that pair splendidly with our Winter, VIP, and Founder's Box. In the coming weeks I will show even more ways our Celebrate Spring Box can be used with items from ALL our past boxes! 

Celebrate Spring Box - What you can expect:

  • Serving tray to compliment any table top. Bonus: it compliments serving ware from the Founder's and VIP Boxes.
  • Organic small batch syrup that is versatile and fresh for any spring beverage!
  • Beautiful recycled glassware to display fresh flowers
  • Chic new bar cart item to impress your guests. Bonus: it matches the bar cart items from the Winter Box!
  • Something sweet to drizzle on appetizers
  • Signature Mostess item that is sure to be a "buzz" worthy conversation starter
  • Three simple beverage recipes
  • Two effortless sweet and savory food recipes
  • Social Qs and modern hosting tips
  • Signature Mostess Box and packaging
  • Complimentary shipping and handling

Boxes ship in March. If you subscribe to a Mostess Membership plan before March 1st, your Celebrate Spring Box will be the first to ship out. 

Remember you don't have to subscribe to a Membership Plan to purchase a box.  We offer Single Boxes that are perfect for gifting or to treat yourself!

Membership Plans are Here!

Rather than buying each box individually you can now enroll in either an Annual Membership or a Quarterly Membership Plan to automatically receive each seasonal box. Better yet? You can GIFT a Membership Plan. It is the perfect gift for a bride to be or as an extra special house warming or thank you gift. 

How does it work?

Every quarter (3 months) we release and ship out a new seasonal box.  If you are enrolled in a Membership Plan, you will automatically be sent a box each season. Our 2017 Seasonal Shipping Dates are listed below. 

Spring Box: MARCH
Summer Box: JUNE
Fall Box: SEPTEMBER
Winter Box: DECEMBER

What are the different Membership Plans?

There are two plans. The Annual Membership and the Quarterly Membership.  With both memberships you will have a box sent each quarter. With an Annual Membership, you are pre-paying for the entire year and you save $60 ($15 per box). With a Quarterly Membership, your credit card is charged for the price of one box ($125) every 3 months.

When does the NExT box ship?

Our next seasonal box will be our Celebrate Spring Box.  It will be released in the coming weeks and will start shipping in March. 

Do I have to have a Membership Plan to purchase a Mostess Box?

Not at all! You can choose to purchase a single box for $135 (includes complimentary shipping and handling). However, we recommend purchasing sooner rather than later - sometimes boxes sell out quickly! 

I hope you find our Membership Plans to be an added perk of the Mostess experience! If you have any questions, please visit our FAQ page.  You may also contact Mostess directly via email (hello@mostessbox.com), voicemail (832.519.8940), or by leaving a comment below!

Cheers!

Pull it Together

Have you ever had guests arrive and you never had time to pull your look together? Never again! 

When I started curating the Winter Box, I had one goal in mind: help customers throw a cheerful winter soiree and look chic doing it. In order to accomplish this, I needed a great product that was versatile, stylish, and most of all effortless. Insert our Signature Blanket Scarf.

I would be lying if I forgot to mention my mother is the main reason I decided on a blanket scarf in the first place. Last summer, she made a point to tell me (not suggest) that it would be great to have something you could use as a centerpiece OR as a scarf. After the obligatory eye roll, I realized her comment was really a splendid idea. I spent most of September searching for the PERFECT scarf. One that you could use as a throw on your couch, as a linen on your bar cart or table, or as a fantastic winter accessory.  

Over the past few weeks we have experienced so much positive feedback about our scarf, that I wanted to share with you how I pull my look together before guests arrive!

Pssst... 

If you need a more formal look, pair one of these styles with a little black dress and sparkling stud earrings!

The Station Two-Step

One step, two step.

When entertaining in your home, the placement of refreshments help define spaces for your guests and give structure to your space. While this sounds great in theory, it can be difficult to do if your living space is small or modest. 


The Problem?
My husband and I live in a high rise apartment with very little space for entertaining. In the past, I would display everything on my kitchen counter and hope for the best.  

The Result?
Guests would naturally congregate in our kitchen (where there are no chairs!) and things would get crowded and uncomfortable. Besides, who wants their microwave to be the center of the social scene? 

The Solution?
I create two different refreshment "stations". 

One station for beverages and one station for food.  I prefer to keep the beverage station on my kitchen island (for easy access to extra ice and glassware).  

I then create a second station in my living room for food. I usually place food on a large platter on my coffee table with small plates and napkins.  This encourages guests to mingle and munch on refreshments in the comfort of a living room (with seating!).

Social Q:  Pull a few extra chairs into your living room to create more space for seating.  I love pulling two chairs in front of our TV set to create a better flow for seating! Happy Hosting!
