Don’t forget to add your favorite pieces on your own gift registry.

All About WeddingSet the Bar

The first step to hosting an awesome at-home engagement party is setting up the bar. This is a huge part of the party that you should have. After all, everyone’s going to want to clink glasses and toast the happy news. The timeless, versatile Lawrence serving tray can pinch-hit for an actual bar—just top it with the tools and ingredients to make each cocktail and display it on your counter or even a windowsill. For a more polished look, pour the liquor from not-so-pretty bottles into elegant glass decanters.

Fresh Arrangement

And, of course, you’ve gotta have flowers—but you don’t necessarily need a vase. Sticking with the cocktail theme, we loosely arranged proteas, sunflowers and eucalyptus branches in the faceted ice cube bucket. This is totally a chic design that will make your entire look gorgeous.

Cocktail Station

Before your guests arrive, mix up a couple of each drink and serve them on the handsome wood and copper tray. You’ll be less stressed and your friends can instantly grab a drink and start mingling—win-win! It will make your engagement party more brilliant that it was already. So add this up in your own simple proposal period.

Chic Cheese Board

The secret to a killer cheese platter? Variety. We served one hard, aged cheese, a soft blue, a semi-hard cheese and a goat cheese atop the roomy square end grain cutting board. A few different fruits help round it out, cutting through the richness of the cheese and adding a little color. The finishing touch: Copper-handled soft and hard cheese knives.

Tools of the Trade

Once the party’s in full swing, let guests help themselves with a DIY drink station, complete with all the bar tools they’ll need to shake up their favorite concoction. The warm copper finish on the Orb jigger and shaker makes them total standouts. So have this one your upcoming engagement party then.
