It's My Entertaining Favs, Honey!

Hi, my honeys! I love to entertain, and I really try to make sure my guests have everything they need when they come to visit or even if they're just over for a meal. Here are some of my favorite items for entertaining guests from serveware to guest towels and more!

Appliances:


Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Blender

Why I love it:

This Vitamix Blender is literally LIFE CHANGING! I know it's a major investment, but the amount of times you will use this machine justifies every penny spent! Make HOT soups, smoothies, mashed cauliflower or potatoes, frozen desserts, dips, and spreads all at the touch of a button! This is quite an upgrade from their original machine, and it's just like picking up a new iPhone when it comes to ease of use.


Vitamix Personal Cup and Adapter

Why I love it:

If you're a smoothie junkie like me or you make protein shakes, this adapter for your Vitamix machine is a must! Just grab and go! The best part is, the machine self cleans. Just add a little soap and water and hit the clean button, and your container is ready for the next use after a quick rinse.



Vitamix Aer Container

Why I love it:

You can use it for whipping, muddling, foaming, and emulsifying! You can even mix fresh cocktails with ice without crushing the ice! I love it for making fresh whipped cream, too)







KitchenAid K45SS 2 KIT 10 Speed 4.5 Qt. Stand Mixer with Flex Edge Beater

Why I love it:

Whether it's making cookie dough or buffalo chicken dip, I can't live without my Kitchenaid mixer for entertaining! It's way better than using a hand blender, and it's very easy to clean! I also love that it has a multitude of speed settings and additional attachment options for spiralizing veggies and making fresh, homemade pasta!


Dinnerware:

Ledge Salad Plates

Ledge Bowls

Ledge Dinner Plates

Why I love this set:

Aside from the Ledge dinnerware being totally classic and stunning, it's very functional as well! The little ledge on the edge of the plates prevents sauces and juices from spilling off your plate! I love that the style lends itself to all different design styles as well. These are also super stackable, which is perfect for limited kitchen cabinet space. There's truly nothing like serving a meal on classic, clean dinnerware!


Matte Black Utensils

Why I love them:

I found these matte black utensils and knew right away these were perfect for my modern farmhouse aesthetic! They fit nicely in the hand, and they look classic and clean. Best of all, they're very easy to clean by hand. Yes, I know, not dishwasher safe, but for the price and style of them, it's totally worth washing them by hand. Also, I've yet to see any silver popping through or black chipping off of them.


Form Round Platter

Why I love it:

Much like my dinnerware plates, this serving platter has that ledge edge, so it prevents spills and has a classic clean look! It's also a great size that fits inside cabinets easily, but also can support a large entree or be used as an appetizer plate.







Verge Oval Serving Platter

Why I love it:

This serving platter completes my ledge dinnerware set by offering a larger service to play full entrees on and even a large roasted chicken or turkey! The ledge at the edge keeps the juices on the platter and off your floors!







Home Made Cutting/Serving Board

Why I Love It:

I found the cutest cutting board recently, and I love it so much I'm using it to post all of my recipes from now on! It's simple and sweet, and it's also large enough to serve large appetizers on! Stack it behind your stove with a few other boards as cute kitchen decor!








Bed & Bath:


White Washcloths 60 Pack

Why I love this set:

Having a large supply of washcloths is a necessity for any household. You'll always have an ample supply on hand for when guests stay over, and you can wash your face and hands everyday without having to constantly do laundry! Can't beat the price, too!



Spa Solid Bath Towel - Fieldcrest

Why I love it:

These towels are the softest of soft and super absorbent, too. The size is also nice and large! I love keeping a couple of these clean in a basket in my guest room in case we have overnight guests that need a shower while they're staying with us! Best part about white towels is you can bleach them to keep them nice and white!








Fluffy Hypoallergenic Bed Pillows

Why I love them:

My husband and I have been sleeping on these affordable pillows for years! They're fluffy, dust mite resistant and hypoallergenic. They feel cool on the head while sleeping at night, and they have great reviews online. When these get dirty or flatten out every few years, we buy the exact same ones over again. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?!



Microfiber Sheet Set

Why I love it:

This set of sheets is affordable and very soft. I've also found them to be very easy to keep clean with a little bit of bleach or OxyClean in the wash! I just love white sheets, but they do come in other colors as well. No scratchiness here, and they're also not too hot for those of use who easily get overheated while sleeping. I don't deal with thread count, I just go by what feels good, and trust me, these do!



Triple Wall Mount Soap Dispenser

Why I love it:

This wall mount soap dispenser is mounted in my shower, and I'm obsessed with how clean it looks! It also keeps all the clutter of half empty shampoo and conditioner bottles out of my tub sills! It looks great when guests come over, and there are labels on the bottles so they know which is the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash! Genius!


Barware:


Gold Cocktail Shaker and Utensil Set:

Why I love this set:

Everyone needs a fancy little barware kit, and this one is cost effective and provides pretty much everything you'd need to make a nice cocktail! Also, it's gold and I have a very strong attraction to gold things lol! Add these to a small round tray on your home bar or in a china cabinet, and not only will they look glamorous, they'll serve a purpose, too!



Large Ice Cube Trays (Squares & Spheres)

Why I love them:

No fancy cocktail for your guests is complete without perfect ice cubes. Don't buy a grocery store bag of misshapen ice. Instead, have these trays of large cubes and spheres on hand to make your cocktails look sophisticated! The silicone molds make sure that your ice cube or sphere comes out perfectly and doesn't break into pieces. Pro tip: Use hot water when filling the trays for less bubbles and clearer cubes.


Marta Coolers

Marta Old Fashioned Glasses

Marta Juice Glasses

Why I love this set:

Each comes with a set of 8 glasses, and I love the simplicity they offer. They're clean and modern, but can also lend themselves to a more rustic aesthetic as well. They're also pretty darn affordable, too. I also like the different size options!


Tall Cylinder Champagne Flutes

Why I love them:

Not only are these unique and special, I love how easy they are to hold in your hand and place in the dishwasher. Traditional champagne flutes are easy to spill and hard to fit in the dishwasher, but not these. I think they look sleek and classic. They're also very affordable!





Cozy Things:


Chunky Knit Throw

Pom Pom Thow

Ruched Faux Fur Throw

Why I love them:

Keeping cozy throws around the house not only makes your home look more inviting, it also helps to keep your guests comfortable. I can't tell you how many times I'll have a friend over, and she asks for a blanket! I love keeping super textured, soft blankets in every room of my home, and I even have a couple of blanket ladders, too!
