"Keep a bottle of aperol in your pantry and a bottle of prosecco in the fridge in case company stops by unexpectedly.  Prosecco is less expensive that champagne and WHEN MIXED WITH APEROL, IT's A REFRESHING AND UNIQUE COCKTAIL. ADD 3 parts prosecco, 2 parts aperol, a splash of club soda and finish with an orange wedge."

 

 

 

"Figs are beautiful and seem exotic.  wrapped in salty prosciutto you get a nice balance of savory and sweet."

 

 

 

" Basic bar snacks look (and somehow, taste) more appealing in small bowls.  i love mismatched patterns together.  these are from anthropologie.  Served this way, even the most Basic nuts, store bought potato chips and deli olives look incredible together on a tray."

 

 

 

" A generic bouquet of flowers from the grocery store can turn into a chic table setting.  pull apart the mixed floral arrangement and separate flowers into smaller like bunches.  then cut down stems and arrange in mini bud vases and place vases down the center of your table."
