7 Must-haves for Every Host

Tables and chairs

We believe entertaining should look and feel (nearly) effortless. That’s especially important with so many of us opting to host more intimate – and relaxed – gatherings, as well as outdoor affairs, which can present additional challenges. Read on for the essentials that can make even an impromptu soiree feel low-maintenance and high-style.


Optima Chill Cell Beverage Dispenser

Part of our innovative Professional Series Serveware Collection, this beverage dispenser has unrivaled advanced cooling technologies that make it ideal for serving anything from cucumber water to chilled sangria. An ice chamber suspended in the reservoir ensures your drinks stay cold for hours on end without dilution. The base is even double walled so condensation won’t build up on the outside. Brilliant!


Hot/Cold 3-piece Set

Spend your time reconnecting with family or friends instead of monitoring your serving table. Our caterer-style Serving Trays contain a thermosensitive core that keeps appetizers hot or cold for approximately two hours. Simply place the trays in the refrigerator or a low-temperature oven prior to use, and then set them out at your party.

Weston Wine Caddy

The centerpiece for a casual get-together. Bottles of wine on hand? Check. Wine glasses for all the gals? Check. Snacks to keep the hangout going? Check. Bring the Weston Wine Caddy outside on the patio, or place it on the coffee table for an all-in-one entertaining caddy for any room.


Carved Wood & Marble Serveware Collection

Intricately handcarved mango wood contrasts against lustrous white marble to create stunning serveware that’s sure to spark conversation. The round and rectangular trays, two-tiered server, entertaining & serving bowls – and even charcuterie picks – create a cohesive tabletop presentation that elevates any occasion.

Stellata Italian Stoneware Collection

If you entertain frequently, you want dinnerware that looks good and performs even better. This handmade Italian stoneware is hand-glazed for an artisanal feel and is safe for use in the microwave and dishwasher, so party prep and cleanup are that much easier.

Folding Table & Chairs

Just because your dining table only seats a few people doesn’t mean you can’t host all your friends and family. Not only do our folding tables and chairs look like stationary furniture, but they also collapse with ease after everyone goes home. So go ahead and blast out that e-invitation!

Aurel Bar Cabinet

Encourage guests to craft their own cocktails by stocking a bar cart or cabinet with all the essentials. The Aurel Bar Cabinet has ample shelving for bottles and glasses, and the top center opens to reveal a beveled mirror and Carrara marble work surface.
