DelectablyChic! is back with its highly anticipated Bridal Gift Guide Series by T. U. Dawood. Last week, we brought you Part 3: Bridal Perfumes. We continue this week with Part 4: Hostess With the Mostess. During wedding preps, you will often have bridesmaids and guests over – maybe future in-laws. These gems will make your entertaining sparkle.
What to Serve:
Regarding food, Canadian Living – The Ultimate Cookbook is a must have collection of 300+ favourite recipes that are handy for you to have at your fingertips, all guided in detail by the Canadian Living Test Kitchen team. This comprehensive book commemorates 40 years of culinary creativity and recipe precision, from appetizers to desserts—and everything in between.
For drinks, the New York Times Book of Cocktails edited by Steve Reddicliffe is a quick and easy way to have at your fingertips some fun drinks to serve unexpected guests or even your bridal party coming to help out with anything from tagging swag to arranging seating charts. This fun and detailed book includes cocktail “classics like the Martini, the Old-Fashioned, the Manhattan, the French 75, the Negroni —as well as favorites from the new generation of elixirs borne of the craft distilling boom.”
For Your Powder Room:
Impressive your guests with the decadent Yardley London Luxury Soap. We tried these soaps out in English Rose, Lily of the Valley and Lavender, and fell in love with all three. Each contains moisturising shea butter are are triple milled to enhance lather, and then delicately scented.
Your At Home Scent:
Perfumeries talk a lot about identifying your personal scent. For millennials in particular, who believe in experiences more than clinging to one signature scents, there are ideal perfumes for you to wear for different occasions, such as a formal affair versus entertaining at home or candlelight dinner for two.
For at home entertaining, we highly recommend Aerin Mediterrannean Honeysuckle eau de parfum. Feminine, while effortlessly sensual, this scent enhances your attractiveness and will subtly charm your guests. The notes of this scent include sweet Honeysuckle, Sparkling Grapefruit, Italian Bergamot, Mandarin Oil, Lily Of The Valley, Gardenia, and Jasmine Sambac Absolute.
For something a little stronger, try Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess perfume. Elegant, sexy and warm, this scent is a blend of Bergamot, warm Amber, Tiare Flower and Vanilla, combined with delicious creamy Coconut.
Stylizing Your Home:
At Home Sarah Style by Sarah Richardson is another gem of a book that will help you give a facelift to your home – if you are living with your fiancé – or prep your new house that you will move into together. This book functions like a behind-the-scenes tour that will inspire readers to achieve winning style on any budget. It will get it entertainment ready for any pre-wedding visits from bridesmaids or well-wishers and of course your post wedding entertaining.
