tips and tricks for masterful hosting

Height Matters

For a table scape that is dynamic and playful, consider incorporating items of various heights, like our tall Palm Candleholders and our low Orchid Bowls, so that each piece receives its own applause.

Stunning Centerpieces
An Ambience Like No Other

Lighting can make or break the mood for your guests. Lose the overhead lighting in favor of smaller moments with candles & lamps for a more intimate feeling that sets the evening's tone.

Candles & Scents
Sophisticated Sips

It can be challenging to mix custom drink requests for guests and entertain simultaneously. Create a signature drink like Michael’s Snow on the Beach served in our Rock Glass & handle cocktail hour like a pro.

Lyrical Accompaniments

Consider planning your menu in a thought-provoking way that references your favorite serving pieces. We used our Mushroom Cheeseboard to serve Gruyère grilled cheese with a mushroom consommé shot.

Picture Perfect

Want to show off your menu in an elevated way? Framing your dinner or cocktail menu is a great way to give guests easy options or to get them excited about the courses and pairings to come throughout the evening.

Coffee Service, Revamped

The tradition of coffee and tea after dinner is a necessity after a long night of mingling, eating, and drinking. Setting up a self-service cart is an effortless way to invite your guests to a warm beverage at their desire.

PARTY FAVORS WITH FLAVOR

Michael sent each of his guests home with artisan chocolates in the best selling heart dish, as well as gifting his male guests an iconic forged shoehorn and female guests a personally selected piece from his daughter brand, Anabel Aram Jewelry.

MINGLING MOMENTS

Michael's gaming collections offered a merry accompaniment and moment of mingling to the cocktail hour scene, with his family favorite Backgammon set up in the bar area, and Dogwood Tic-Tac-Toe on the patio outside.

"I love enriching people's lives with meaning, especially the big moments around a table where important interactions take place with smiles." - Michael Aram
