Friends! We hinted at it last week with our baby food jar bud vases but the big new is that wrote an article about hosting a Sip & See party for PaulaDeen.com! We are just thrilled to be talking Southern traditions on the same site as the Queen of Southern cooking. Check the story here and please leave us a comments (so Paula knows you stopped by).
Have you been to a Sip & See? Have you ever hosted one? We want all the details.

Sometimes you want to entertain but the thought of washing every plate, platter, wine glass and cheese knife in your house is too terrifying to invite your friends over. Right? Ok, here are 2 products that will help you host with ease and save your manicure at the end of the night. They are reusable, recyclable or compostable but still CHIC looking. And you won’t feel super duper guilty when you toss them in the recycling bin at the end of the night.
How smart are these cocktail plates by Plate-A-Cup? They have a slot to hold your glass so you can hold you plate and drink in one hand and eat, shake and gesture wildly during your juicy story with your other hand. Plate-A-Cup is:
– 100% biodegradable and compostable
– 100% “Tree Free”
– Temperatures up to 93° C or 200° F.
– 100% microwave and freezer safe
– Soak proof and grease resistant
I love this cocktail size plate for appetizers but Plate-A-Cup comes in dinner sized plates as well for your next full meal function. This wine glass slot is so convenient I’ll never go back to regular cocktail plates, there I said it.
See that blue roll on the left hand side of the picture? Those are MyDrap cotton cocktail napkins! They come on a roll as pictured, in tons of pretty colors and all the different sizes you might need. They are thick and soft, more like a fine linen than cotton feeling. You pull off the number you need and save the rest of the roll for next time. They are washable so you can use them as many times as they hold up and then recycle when done.
My Golden Globes viewing party was SO much less work to clean up thanks to Plate-A-Cup and MyDrap (and my husband who washed all the platters.)
What would you do if you found this invitation to join a Sunday Summer Supper Club resting in your mailbox all tied up with twine? I think I would squeal with delight.
My cutie pie friend Meghan emailed me an invitation she designed for her impending Sunday Summer Supper Club. I thought it was SUCH a darling idea I begged her to let me show the invitation to all of you. The bottom left hand pic is of my dining room table set for company, which she found on A&O!
I say YES YES YES! What do you guys think? Does this invitation get you thinking of starting your own supper club?
