Spring Entertaining with Habitual Hostess

Need a springtime entertaining refresher? Alston and Leigh of Habitual Hostess are here to share their tips for effortless entertaining this season.

Fill Your Homes with Florals

Don't be intimidated to bring fresh flowers into your home! In the spring, we love setting the table with bright tulips. "These flowers need plenty of water, so be sure you're changing it daily! We also recommend adding a few pennies to the bottom of your vase- the copper will kill off bacteria. Lastly, to keep your tulips from looking droopy, poke a hole just beneath the bud with a pin. This will allow for extra water to get to the leaves (and works for any hollow stemmed flower)!" - Alston & Leigh

A Refreshing Way to Stay Cool

Alston & Leigh believe it's our job to make life fun! They were so kind to create a specialty cocktail, aptly named after our first retail location, The Cabana! While the recipe below serves one, it is the perfect apéritif to batch in advance to make filling your guests cups a breeze. We hope you sip in style and enjoy entertaining with these tips all season long.
