After the big to-do of the big day, no one would blame you for wanting to take a little break from hosting any sort of party. But once some time has passed, you’ll probably get the entertaining itch again. Of course your wedding was the perfect chance to celebrate with every important person in you and your spouse's life, but there are going to be so many more moments to share with your loved ones, especially now as newlyweds. From birthday parties to anniversaries to housewarming parties, you’re going to be happy you added entertaining essentials to your wedding registry.
Our Top 7 Entertaining Staples
Maybe you’re a dinner party couple? Or maybe early risers flock together and you only have people over for brunch. But whether it’s a coffee maker or champagne glasses, we’ve collected some of our users’ most requested hosting picks that will make your parties a hit!
For the couples who get drop-in visitors more often – this fully programmable coffee maker does the job for you. If you don’t want to get up too early, you can set it to run in advance, and you can even make single cups if anyone wants a second round!
Nothing says celebration quite like champagne, so these classic style champagne glasses will for sure become a key part of all your future parties too! From mimosas in the morning to midnight toasts, these will be around whenever you need a little bubbly in your life.
Your wedding is the perfect time to update your basics, and with this gift on your registry, you get a cocktail shaker and a little helper all in one – tuxedo and all! It’s a fun statement piece that will start a conversation but still something that you can get plenty of use out of.
Hosting doesn’t mean having to pull out a multi-course meal every single time. Just step up your charcuterie game with a combo cutting and serving board that’s practical, beautiful, and will make your cocktail parties that much easier.
As it’s time to upgrade the basics, this functional three-tiered foldable party tray is what every home entertainer would love. It is ideal if: You have got a big list of recipes to serve your guests (serve them conveniently all at once) – You’re low on kitchen space – You need a multipurpose tray to double as a countertop decor item too.
A warming basket may not be something most people think of as an entertaining staple, but nothing touches the heart like warm food. This handwoven, artisanal one from Vivaterra is both a beautiful statement piece for your table as well as a practical container for warming breads and baked goods, and when not on the table, use it to store fruit. We felt it was more than fair to include it on this list.
Make it easy to find the perfect pairing, no matter what you’re making for dinner. A wine rack like this is just the right size to keep a few of your favorites on the counter, so opening up another bottle will never be far out of reach.
Entertaining will be easier and more enjoyable with the right mix of gifts on your registry. Keep your style in mind as you add your gifts and your first party will be a smashing success.
