On June 22nd I celebrated the start of summer at Robert Verdi's Luxe Laboratory, sipping on BACARDI® Classic Cocktail Piña Colada and BACARDI® Classic Cocktail Strawberry Daiquiri and enjoying delicious hors d'oeuvres.
Robert shared his exclusive home-entertaining tips so you can be the perfect host this season. I love the idea of placing brown craft paper underneath your hors d'oeuvres and writing the menu beside each plate so your guests know exactly what you are serving.
Another useful tip is using items such as starfish, sand and seashells to create a beachy party atmosphere.
Here's a fun way to personalize drink glasses, using chalkboard paint. Paint a mini-chalkboard square on each glass and have your guests write their name on them. This ways everyone can keep track of their own glass.
Keep bottles chilled with a large galvanized steel bucket filled with ice and bottles of BACARDI® Classic Cocktail Piña Colada and BACARDI® Classic Cocktail Strawberry Daiquiri.
Another fun activity is to setup a marshmallow roasting station with a hibachi grill, skewers, marshmallows and dipping sauces for guests to cook their own sweet treats at the event.
Snacks are a must at any party. Popcorn, Indiana offers delicious flavors to mix & match. Displaying the popcorn in glass jars and using scoops is an easy way for guests to load up on snacks.
All these hosting tips created the perfect summer party environment! Thanks Robert!
As I left, I was excited to receive a party hosting kit, including a 750-ml bottle of ready-to-serve BACARDI® Classic Cocktail Piña Colada, which I plan on opening this weekend. Hope you get to utilize some of these summer hosting tips!
