Momtrends recently invited bloggers from across the nation to experience the Aladdin Mason Entertaining Collection. We gathered at one of my favorite venues, The Piedmont Estates and Gardens, to be treated to a lovely Southern Luncheon thoughtfully prepared by Party BluPrints.
I was impressed with the versatility of the Aladdin mix-and-match collection of mason-inspired entertaining supplies. The inspiration behind the designs is the idea of less stress in the party planning process and more togetherness: more impromptu patio parties, more at-home happy hours, more game nights and BBQs!
See how well the insulated tumblers mingle with delicate stemware and glass chargers?
Take a closer look. What makes this mix work is the introduction of a casual arrangement of wildflowers and magnolia leaves turned place cards.
The Aladdin Southern Luncheon certainly whet my appetite for summer entertaining with many beautiful, yet simple ideas to steal for your next intimate gathering at home.
The Gallon Classic Glass Drink Dispensers free you up from endless refills and allows you to spend more time with your party guests. Place them on graduated stands/platforms for easy access!
For a delicious dessert presentation, fill mason jar to-go cups with angel food cake cut into cubes. Add small bowls of confectionary treats and berries and bottles of syrup for a whimsical do-it-yourself dessert bar.
And when the party is over, you want to send your guests home with a memorable favor. We received a base of seasonings in which to add other spices to create a dry rub to enjoy at home.
And what’s a gathering without photos to remember all of the great times you had? A professional photographer covered this event, however your smartphone can produce some memorable shots for you to forward to friends and family as treasured mementos!
For you last minute planners out there ::hand raised:: I hope this post provided you with more confidence to entertain at home–especially with Mother’s Day only days away! Special thanks to Momtends, Aladdin, and Party BluPrints for a golden afternoon!
