How to Host a Summer Soirée

I’m so elated to share this great article written by my bestie Beauty & Lifestyle Influencer Ilse with Live Learn Luxe It blog. Hope you enjoy cuz I know I did!

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

Last week I invited some of my best girlfriends over to see our new place and have ourselves a little summer soirée! (Can we all agree adding “soirée” to anything makes it sound super fancy?) Our guest of honor was Notable Wines because when my friends and I get together it’s all about good conversation and even better wine!

Any time I know I’m having friends over I tend to go a little overboard with preparations. I clean with a good three days in advance and I love making the event extra special for them. Trust me when I say every little detail is thought out and I’m pretty particular about my menu.

With that said, I have 3 Tips on How to Host a Summer Soirée I ALWAYS follow:

What Did You Do For Your Favorite Guy On Father’s Day

Yesterday was perfect, I could not have asked for a better Father’s Day for my husband. Everything the kids and I planned went accordingly even the weather was perfect. My husband Michael is a very simple guy he doesn’t like a big production like myself. He prefer things simple but of great quality. So we managed to provide him with everything he enjoy including us on yesterday. His day of goodies were sports apparel, wine & spirits, cigars, and world class chuck steaks while sitting on the deck listening to his eclectic playlist of music.

While in the city all week working on Friday I picked up at Ceriello Fine Foods some chuck steaks. They have the best butcher to me for Prime Aged Beef. Whenever I know we are going to go out on the deck and grill one of Michael fav is chuck steaks. In between you and I, I think he used some of that Trader Vics as a glaze. #justsayin 

Michael ended the evening finishing off both bottle of The MacallanThe Original Trader Vics Macadamia Nuts Liqueur. Well, we helped him with that Trader Vics. Ladies, it’s is an exquisite flavor of Hawaiian macadamia nuts with a roasty touch of vanilla that I found to be perfect alone and with ice cream and probably coffee. So you may want to pick up a bottle for yourself, I know I’m going to.

What did you do for your father on Father’s Day?

On Saturday I was invited to attend CT Blogger Social Media Meetup at VOVO Organics in New Haven. I was so excited to finally attend one of the meetings. Being that the meetings always take place on Saturday it’s usually hard for me to attend because it’s my most busy day. So I called up my gal pal the fabulous Ilse from Live Learn Luxe It because I thought this would be a great networking event for her to attend. If you have not seen her blog then you need to check her out. Be prepared to be there for hours, I promise she’s FABULOUS!

Wendy and Bonnie did a great job hosting the event and they offered light snacks and wine while the owner Christina offered everyone a complimentary gift bag with a full size bottle of Almond Blossom Skin Oil. With some many great items I made a purchase of Organic Castor Oil & Put The Lime In The Kokonut Body Spray.

I definitely will be visiting VOVO Organics Bath & Body store again as soon as it warm up. Christina shared with us that she just added two new additions to her space; A Tea Bar which provides an array of imported exotic teas from around the world and The Foot Spa to provide a relaxing and healthy foot soak using their exclusive imported Cape Verde sea salt.

Everyone who attend were all Connecticut Bloggers check out there sites here.
