Remember back in 4th grade when all your girlfriends would come over to talk about crushes and eat ice cream sundaes? Well, this is just like that. But, you know, with grown-up drinks. From the classiest of crystal stemware to gold and blush accents for the buffet, Crystal Palecek, founder and editor-in-chief of Rue magazine, dishes on her must-haves for those no-men-allowed nights.
“The arrival of summer is the perfect excuse to get together with your girlfriends. And, if you’re tired of the rushed happy hours after work (I know I am), a thoughtful, feminine fete is easy to throw with a few essentials. First off, take cues from your garden with festive florals that never fade. Deck the table with gold accents. And take your cocktails – mojitos are a must – to professional levels with handblown wineglasses in blush hues. Opt for a sturdier sipping option with vintage-inspired paper straws.
Set your Spotify to play the summer’s top hits. Then send guests off with a flirty tote filled to the brim with basking must-haves, from beach books to coconut water. Let the party commence.”
Our Cocktail Hour with Rue Magazine: Girls’ Night In Boutique opens Friday, June 13, at 11AM ET.
