chelsea's top 5 entertaining must haves

We like to keep a stocked bar, and the Madison Mixer bar cart from Society Social is so perfect. We've spent lots of evenings entertaining with this handy thing!

I like to have a few sets of coasters on hand -- nothing too fancy, so if they get ruined, it's no big deal. These cork coasters have little gold flecks in them, which makes them just the right amount of fancy. 

I looooove fun flatware. I've been wishing for this black set for a while now!

We usually have our candles lit when people come over. I love that it makes things a little more cozy! My favorite candles are these from Capri Blue.

Instead of the old-school hostess dress, I love to wear a comfy maxi dress to entertain. It's breezy, simple, and you can dress it up with some great jewelry for a special occasion!
