Happy New Years Eve, party people!

I cannot believe 2017 officially begins tomorrow, can you? In case you missed it, I rounded up some of my favorite moments from 2016 and oh, what a good year it was!

In honor of New Years Eve I thought it would be fun to put together the ultimate New Years Eve bar checklist. What’s great about this checklist is that you can use it for your party tonight and beyond!

Ever since I moved to the UES, I’ve been dying for a new bar cart. I’ve had my eye on this Williams-Sonoma silver bar cart for quite some time and I think I may just pull the trigger. Other bar cart must-haves: bubbles (Veueve, of course!), Mixers (Vermouth for dirty martinis, bitters and citrus mixers!

Bubbles + More

Must have stocked: Vodka, Scotch, Bourbon, Tequila, Gin, Rum, Orange Liquor, Campari, Grand Marnier and champagne!

Mixers

Vermouth, Bitters, citrus mixers, craft syrups. Let’s not forget the soda water and tonic.

Bar Tools

Shaker, ice bucket + tongsstrainer, jigger, stirrer, vintage coasters, wine and beer opener.

Garnishes

Green olives, fresh berries, herb sprigs, citrus slices, sugars, salts and lots of ice! Adding fresh berries to champagne is one of my go-to moves whenever I host a party. <3

Barware

One should always have on hand: Highballs, tumblerswine glasses and champagne flutes.

Extra Details

It’s all in the details! Don’t forget: fresh flowers (duh), gold striped straws, fun cocktail napkins, a rattan tray and a marble ice bucket!

A Blue and White Christmas

blue-and-white-christmas

Hello, ladies and gents! Apologies for the radio silence around here. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know I was in Anguilla and St. Maarten from Thursday to Sunday last week. I’m finally back in New York and back to blogging! I’ll be sharing a little recap of our trip later this week but in the meantime, I came across this blue and white themed holiday home tour and of course had to share! Featured on Style At Home, this traditional home takes a little twist on color schemes. As you guys know, I’m a fan of blue and white interiors in general so it’s no surprise when it comes to the holidays that doesn’t change! I’m such a fan of the dinning room – particularly the graphic dinning chairs and the blue on the walls and china cabinet. Any who, you can take a peek at the entire home too right here! Xo. Lauren
