  • Decant your wine. Possibly the easiest entertaining trick in the book! Not only does it make your wine taste a whole lot better (you’ll be so surprised), but it also looks so pretty and makes a good impression on guest.

  • Dress up pre-made dips + spreads. We’re big hummus lovers, so we tried a variety of flavors from Tribe Hummus to pair with our wines. We removed them from the containers and placed the hummus in pretty dishes, topping with a drizzle of olive oil before serving. Do this with the dips or spreads of your choice!

  • Garnish. A drizzle of flavored olive oil (Truffle is our favorite!), fresh herbs or fruit significantly up the visual appeal of a simple cheese plate.

  • Chill in style. Instead of keeping wine in the fridge, leave it out in a wine cooler for easy access. We love these wines from Chloe Wine Collection!

  • Flavor microwave popcorn. Get creative with flavors and take microwave (or stove-popped) popcorn up a notch. Simmer a bit of butter over low heat with your favorite flavors and toss to coat popcorn completely. Our go-to? Rosemary, sea salt + parmesan.

  • Fresh flowers. The easiest way to make your coffee table Oscars-ready? Adding a pretty floral arrangement!
