Happy Hour at Home…

If you, like us, are taking happy hour at home very seriously right now — some random thoughts to snack on. (Is everyone else doing virtual happy hours with siblings and friends?)

LOVE AND OFTEN USE THESE RED WINE GOBLETS

WE’VE REFERENCED THIS WINE BIBLE COUNTLESS TIMES, AND USE THIS (<<GREAT GIFT FOR A BUDDING OENOPHILE) CLOSE TO WEEKLY TO PAIR WINE WITH OUR MEALS

NOT TECHNICALLY WINE GLASSES, BUT I LOVE TO DRINK WINE OUT OF THESE

PREFERABLY ALONGSIDE A BUNCH OF CRUNCHY SNACKS SERVED IN THIS — A FEW APERITIVI SNACKS I LOVE: TRUFFLE CHIPS, VIRGINIA PEANUTS, AND PALACIOS CHORIZO SLICED INTO COINS AND TOASTED IN A HOT SKILLET…AND SOMETIMES GOOD OL FRITOS

JUST ORDERED THESE FOR AFOREMENTIONED CHIPS

FOR MORE SUBSTANTIAL APPETIZER FARE, I SWEAR BY THESE SIMPLE WHITE PLATES (WHICH I USE EVERY DAY FOR A MILLION REASONS), BUT HOW PRETTY ARE THESE?!

WE USE THESE COASTERS TO PROTECT OUR (CURRENTLY ON-SALE) COFFEE TABLE

ALSO LOVE THESE FLORAL ONES

I SWEAR BY THIS CHAMPAGNE STOPPER — WE DRINK A LOT OF SPARKLING IN THIS HOUSE! IT’S NOT ONLY FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS…OR, RATHER, IT MAKES NO OCCASION A SPECIAL OCCASION

WE KEEP WINE CHILLED IN A MAUVIEL BUCKET WE RECEIVED FOR OUR WEDDING — SUCH AN EXTRAVAGANT AND CHERISHED GIFT!

ADORE THIS PRETTY ICE BUCKET IF YOU’RE IN COCKTAIL MODE

…IN WHICH CASE, CONSIDER BUYING THIS DEATH&CO COCKTAIL BOOK, WHICH MR. MAGPIE SWEARS BY

CACTUS STRAWS FOR YOUR NEXT BATCH OF TEQUILA-BASED COCKTAILS

A MUST-HAVE IF YOU LIKE NEGRONIS

PRETTY NAPKINS MAKE ANYTHING A SPECIAL OCCASION

THIS MEMOIR BY A YOUNG SOMMELIER INTRIGUES ME

BEFORE CHILDREN, I USED TO LOVE TO THUMB THROUGH DESIGN BOOKS WHILE ENJOYING A GLASS OF WINE — CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS TO BE RELEASED, AS I LOVED HIS FIRST

LOVE DOING PUZZLES, ESPECIALLY THE ONES FROM POMEGRANATE, WHICH ARE SUPER HIGH-QUALITY AND SUCH PRETTY SUBJECTS

I AM STILL GETTING FULLY DRESSED EVERY DAY (I WORK FROM HOME ALWAYS AND THIS IS A PERSONAL RULE OF MINE), BUT THE IDEA OF ENJOYING A GLASS OF WINE IN THESE UBER-SOFT SWEATS OR THIS TIE-DYE SET IS V APPEALING

P.S. Little luxuries for even the smallest of homes.

P.P.S. The best gear for home and kitchen.

P.P.P.S. My favorite sources for artwork.

  1. I love those blue cocktail napkins ❀️
    For glasses, it’s hard to pry me away from my Duralex Picardie πŸ™‚
    Which are also great for kids, being tempered glass! Tough to break, though I’ve managed to do it, ha.

  2. some of my favorite Crate and Barrel glasses which are very inexpensivehttps://www.crateandbarrel.com/hatch-rocks-glass/s215436

  3. We are leaning in HARD to happy hour lately too… glad to hear you and yours are hanging in ok in NYC. A friend shared a scripture that gave me great strength yesterday- 2 Timothy 1:7. NO FEAR

    1. Thank you so much for sharing this, Shauna. Love this.

      YES to leaning HARD into (early, often) happy hours πŸ™‚
