Shake Things Up: Hosting a Chic Cocktail Party

Summer is the perfect time to gather your besties and host a fun and fabulous cocktail party. Whether it's a rooftop gathering, a poolside soiree, or a casual garden hangout, cocktails and fashion are the perfect combination for a memorable night.


In this post we share some tips on how to host the ultimate cocktail party for your girlfriends, with chic fashion ideas to ensure you look and feel your best!


Setting the Mood

First things first, set the scene for your cocktail party. Create a relaxed and inviting atmosphere with some stylish decor and lighting. You can opt for some warm and cosy outdoor lighting, such as string lights or lanterns, to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Don't forget to set up a cocktail bar with all the essential mixers, glassware, and garnishes! Check out our homeware collection for ideas.


Fashion Ideas

For a stylish cocktail party, you'll need the perfect outfit. Opt for a chic and comfortable dress, like a classic LBD, or a colourful maxi dress that flatters your body shape. Accessorise your outfit with some statement jewellery and a pair of comfortable heels or sandals that you can dance in. Don't forget to complete your look with some chic sunglasses, which will not only add some glam to your outfit but also protect your eyes from the sun's rays.


The Perfect Cocktail Menu

No cocktail party is complete without some delicious cocktails. Impress your guests with a signature cocktail or two, and don't forget to offer some non-alcoholic options for those who prefer it. Some popular summer cocktails include margaritas, mojitos, and Aperol spritzes. 


Fun Activities

To keep your guests entertained, consider adding some fun activities to the mix. You can set up a DIY cocktail station, where guests can create their own cocktails, or opt for some classic party games like charades or Cards Against Humanity.


Hosting a cocktail party for your girlfriends can be a fun and memorable experience with the right planning and preparation! With these tips, you'll be sure to impress your guests and have a night to remember.
