With cozy, fall evenings on the horizon, cocktail parties are heading indoors and this inspiration courtesy of Anne Hyun of Black Twine, is the perfect excuse to throw a little shindig. Bright florals are paired with Jonathan Adler's modern cocktail accoutrements and delicious bites. Think sushi and sliders served up on gold splattered plates and all washed down with Moscow Mules. It's perfection captured by Emanuel Hahn. Psst...get the party blueprints for pulling off this modern fete right here. From Anne Hyun, Founder of Black Twine... With summer entertaining still in recent memory and the anticipation of cozy fall nights ahead, we think that this modern cocktail party is perfect for a chiily weather get-together that is glamorous and yet attainable. We styled Jonathan Adler’s iconic black and gold barware with pops of bright florals by designer Lewis Miller (known as the Florist Bandit for his surprise Flower Flashes in NYC ). The light bites by Shiki NYC, including sushi balls, chicken tsukune sliders, and “fall” summer rolls, are elegant to plate up but couldn’t be easier to replicate. And of course, the cocktails! Hella Cocktail Co. Mixers make it oh-so-easy for even the most amateur of bartenders (yours truly) to put together these fun Moscow Mules and Martinez cocktails that will get everyone talking. The talented Emanuel Hahn artfully shot the party at Homepolish’s NYC kitchen studio, a perfect backdrop for an urban get-together. With Black Twine’s party blueprint, everything from shopping links to recipes and tips are all in one place to take you from inspiration to reality. And finally, the best party tip, from the icon Jonathan Adler himself, is to relax and remember, “People aren’t coming to your house to judge you on your décor or your food – they’re coming to see you.” Cheers to that!
