Current Obsessions: Shop Barware Essentials + A Moscow Mule Recipe

Good morning to my loyal readers!

I have exciting news to share — from time to time I will now be featuring posts with items I am currently obsessed with in various categories and providing links for you to shop the look directly from my site… and it starts today! With football season in full swing and the air cooling off, it’s the perfect time to host a gathering. A party isn’t a party without a bar area, and if you are in an apartment, loft or home without a built in bar then this post will help you create your own little bar nook or enhance an existing bar area. Investing in a bar cart is great for entertaining and can be used for serving appetizers as well as beverages. Personalized cocktail napkins, cups and stir sticks add in extra touches and vibrant color. I am particularly obsessed with the Scalamandre inspired zebra napkins pictured below, the turquoise parrot wine/bottle opener… and of course the lucite wine holder, which is a complete steal from Target. Take a look below at my current barware obsessions, and if anything catches your eye then click the link next to the number associated with the image to purchase it! These items also make great hostess, wedding, birthday or shower gifts!

As an added bonus check out my moscow mule recipe; this drink is a fall favorite with ginger flavor typically served in copper mugs (who doesn’t love copper mugs? — check out #3 if you need to purchase your own!)
