Ceremony Blog Presents | Hope Chest

I’ll Drink to That

+Ah, the first cocktail party as a couple…but where to start? How ’bout Hip Sips by Lucy Brennan at Nordstrom?
+Stir with style while using BHLDN’s ‘Drink Me’ drink stirrers.
+Pottery Barn brings some zing to barware with beautifully etched glasses. For this we say ‘Mahalo!’
+First rule of a party: Always use a coaster. Second rule: Look good doing it with chic coasters from Michael C. Fina.
+Your heart may still be in San Francisco, but sip away to fond memories whenever you serve a beverage from the SF tray at Gump’s.
