What you need if you’re hosting… friends

Go for a cocktail that’s laid-back but still beautiful, like a Moscow Mule. Grab your shiniest—and cutest-when-clanking-for-Insta-story—mugs and pour in some vodka, add in a little bit of ginger beer, and then squeeze half a lime. Top it off with a zesty dose of grapefruit juice to give it a little something extra. 

Continue the light and refreshing aromas in your powder room with Caldrea’s Ginger Pomelo Hand Soap, with distinct ginger and grapefruit scents that mirror the bold flavors in your cocktail menu. Is it possible to fall in love with a bottle of soap? Asking for a friend.

What you need if you’re hosting… co-workers

Your office mates don’t often get to see the *other* side of you, so this is the time to put on a more upscale front.  Whip together a pitcher of seasonal mulled sangria, and you might get a best friend out of this. Just add red wine, apple brandy, and whatever type of juice you prefer into a saucepan over low heat. Once the sugar is melted, toss in a few lemon and orange slices, simmer a few minutes, and serve.

Skip the paper cups and opt for actual glassware plus a centerpiece filled of fresh lemons and apples. Keep Caldrea’s Pear Blossom Agave Countertop Spray on hand for a fragrant solve to any spills—like when your coworker goes for a second glass. The luxe-cozy result will be the talk of the office for days.

What you need if you’re hosting… family

You don’t want to give your fam any reason to doubt your hostess capabilities, so go the extra mile with a classic rosemary champagne cocktail. Pour some rosemary simple syrup and gin into a pretty flute, top with a dash of champagne and fresh rosemary sprigs, and you’ve got a showstopping beverage for the second they walk in the door.

Impress your familial guests with a vase of understated eucalyptus on top of a navy table runner.  Then bring the feeling to life throughout the rest of your space with Caldrea’s Basil Blue Sage Linen and Room Spray, with scented hints of rosemary and sage with every mist. Yep, you just became the designated party-thrower.
