how to: make-your-own-mojito-kit

I was so flattered when the ladies of Commerce Street Events told me that I inspired their Spring party favor at the Sips & Dinner dinner party. You probably know by now that I love myself a good favor and this one is proof that you can still enjoy them at 21+!

Alas, we’re sharing this DIY Make-Your-Own-Mojito-Kit that you and your guests can enjoy – think about how perfect these would be at a bachelorette weekend or bridal shower too!

sips and supper dinner party

This week, I am sharing with you a gorgeous dinner party that my friends at Commerce Street Events hosted. It is “H&T approved” and I hope inspires you to throw your own!

Below is a recap of Sips & Supper!

With spring in the air it was the perfect time to have a blooming affair. We had the pleasure of styling this lovely table for a spring in-home dinner party. Each guest received a hand delivered invitation with fresh flowers and hand dyed silk ribbon. From the start, we wanted to create a very personalized experience for the guests. Since this was a smaller event, the little details made a big impression.

Shades of blue combined with pops of pink were the perfect color selections for this seasonal affair. Our team mixed pieces from the client’s grandmother’s vintage collection along with fresh finds to fashion a new budget friendly look. The grandmother’s blush depression glass was a favorite amongst the crowd. The florist created a long arrangement of florals for the centerpiece that included hydrangeas and peonies.

After cocktail hour, guests found personalized mini easels at each place setting. Even the caterer was on board with incorporating fresh spring flavors in the menu. Conversation kept going as drinks were flowing through the evening. Guests were able to pick up a make-your-own-mojito kit on the way out to keep the party flowing even at home.

Tip for a Spring Soirée: 

  • Fresh blooms are a must for any spring bash.
  • Creative hand delivered invitations will intrigue your guests and leave them feeling special.
  • Mixing your own china and décor with new finds is a great way to freshen up your table.
  • Festive music will keep the party lively. Our favorites include: Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Billie Holiday, and Ray LaMontagne.

Stay tuned for a “how-to” on their make-your-own-mojito kit (read: party favor) which was H&T inspired!
