Ever since moving to the Upper East Side, I’ve been obsessed with entertaining at home. One of my favorite weekend activities is brunch, so naturally, inviting friends over for brunch is always so fun especially now that I have the space!
Whenever I entertain at home, I always make sure to have Chloe Prosecco on hand.Whether you prefer prosecco on it’s own or you like to create a special recipe, prosecco is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Plus Chloe Prosecco pairs well with both savory and sweet dishes.
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’m a huge fan of Chloe Wine Collection and their prosecco is just as delicious as their rose! If you live on the Upper East Side, you can find the Chloe Prosecco at Yorkshire Wines and Spirits, the Wine Emporium or Up Thai! The wine is bursting with fine bubbles and notes of peaches, apples and flowers. Making it perfect addition for your brunch cocktails! Not only is it rich but it’s balanced with a crisp finish.
If you’re looking to mix up your brunch at home, I’ve highlighted three different prosecco recipes definitely worth trying! What are some of your favorite tips when hosting friends for brunch?! Xo. Lauren

Happy Monday, ladies and gents! In case you missed it or you’re just tuning in, I shared my bedroom reveal last week. I LOVED reading everyone’s comments so keep em’ coming! Gray Malin also featured my bedroom last week which is always fun as I’m such a big fan of his work.
You guys!!! I’m so excited to finally share with you my bedroom reveal! In case you are just tuning in, I moved to the Upper East Side at the end of last year. I redesigned my old bedroom as part of the One Room Challenge which you can see right here. Although moving is such a pain in New York, I was very excited to have the chance to makeover a totally new space. It’s taken longer than expected to finish my apartment (as many of you know, my living room is still in the works!) but nonetheless, the bedroom is FINALLY finished so here it is. I am so happy with how it turned out and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without working with amazing brands like Gray Malin, The Mine, Gansett Lane Home, Annie Selke and more.
Ever since moving into my one bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side, I have been entertaining constantly! I love having my girlfriends over for wine and treats. This past weekend I teamed up with a Spanish wine region, Rueda, to host a fun wine-filled afternoon. Rueda is known for their refreshing Verdejo white wine and I have to admit, it’s delicious! If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, you will love Verdejo from Rueda. It’s vibrant and complex, yet effortlessly drinkable! In addition to having a few bottles of Oro de Castilla and Shaya Verdejo wine on hand, I also picked up some tea sandwiches, scones and sweet treats from Alice’s Tea Cup, an Upper East Side must-try. It definitely made for a sweet afternoon!
To help freshen up my space, I picked up a few of my favorite blooms to decorate my dining nook and bar cart. In case you didn’t know, cherry blossoms are insanely pretty this time of year. You can typically find cherry blossom branches for around $12 dollars a branch from your local florist! And in true lauren-nelson.com fashion, I also had white hydrangeas on hand to spruce up my bar cart.
With each new season, I like to switch up my dishes and dinnerware. I absolutely loved these pink floral dishes and these pink glasses from Villeroy & Boch. They matched perfectly with the cherry blossoms and looked oh-so-cute under the tea sandwiches.
If you’re planning to entertain at home any time soon, or just want a refreshing glass of white wine, make sure to look for Rueda in your wine store or order it directly from wine.com with the code “RUEDA” for a 10% discount! Cheers!! Xo. Lauren
