Our Top 10 Anthropologie Entertaining Must Haves

1. Chacutiere Board // Shop HERE

A party must have is a wooden board to use for cheeses, nuts, fruits and more! This style comes in two sizes and for today’s party we have the small size. It’s very well made! Either size would make an excellent gift as well.

2. Plates // Shop HERE

The new Artemesia collection that just debuted is SO gorgeous! The fall tones are perfect for making a statement at your next party. For today’s set up we are using the small plates, bowls and large plates. This set also comes with serving pieces like a platter and large bowl. Don’t you just love the scallop detailing?

3. Serving Pieces & Platters // Shop HERE

Anthropologie always has the the prettiest serving platter options available! For our iced pumpkin bread we are using the new Ismay platter featuring a subtle floral pattern. This collection also has a coordinating pitcher and plates.

4. Chip & Dip Bowl / Cake Stand // Shop HERE

This unique set can serve as a platter with a bowl OR can be flipped over to be a cake stand! Such a creative idea! The platter has a magnet that attaches to the bowl. It would make such a great gift as well. Plus it ships for free!

5. Glasses // Shop HERE

These gorgeous iridescent glasses are a party must have! We love the subtle shimmer and the size. Each set comes with four glasses total so they come out to just $8 each which is a great price!

6. Candles / Candlestick Holders // Shop HERE

Anthropologie is home of the most amazing variety of candles and candlesticks! We decorated Lindsay’s table and buffet using some of our fave candle items. These wooden candlestick holders come in two sizes / colors. Here are some additional candles and holders that would be perfect to add to your decor or as a gift too!

7. Towels and Table Runners // Shop HERE

Adding a pop of color and texture to your table or kitchen bar is easy thanks to all the chic options available at Anthropologie. This multi colored dishtowel added the perfect amount of fall hues to our tablescape. Here are some additional options below.

8. Vases // Shop HERE

Adding florals or stems to your decor around your home or for a party is an easy way to add some elements of interest. This new blush hued vase is a versatile option that is just under $40! I can’t wait to fill it with a new arrangement next week to celebrate my daughter’s birthday.

9. Silverware / Serving Utensils // Shop HERE

This gold serving set is definitely the perfect hostess gift! It makes a subtle statement and is under $40 too. I love the color and modern design.

10. Dresses // Shop HERE

We can’t forget the best part of hosting an event: finding the perfect dress to wear! Anthropologie has the most stunning midi and maxi dresses available right now. This multi-colored dress is even more beautiful it person! It is available in five patterns and has amazing reviews. It is so comfortable and the beading detail is exquisite. We can see why this dress sold out so quickly. But luckily for you all it is NOW back in stock! It runs true to size but if between sizes go up for the best fit. You all will love it!

This gorgeous burgandy midi dress would be perfect for fall family photos! It runs pretty true to size but if you’re between sizes we suggest going up for the best fit.

Here is a roundup of everything we used in today’s post so you can easily shop the items!

You can get free shipping on all order of just $50 or more. It’s the perfect time to get stocked up on all your holiday gifting needs too!
