How to Host a Simple, but Elegant Gathering!

This post was sponsored by Libbey as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

It’s that time of year again when we invite all of our friends and family over for the holidays. It is such a wonderful thing that it makes me wonder why do I not invite friends and family over more often.


After all, I always thoroughly enjoy having guests over. After I pondered the idea, I decided this upcoming year I’m going to host at least one gathering per month. I’m not planning on make a 5-course meal, but I can serve my guests a simple cheeseball, crackers, grapes, and some wine for some good cheer in my Libbey® Glass Perfect Signature™ Auden Stemware Collection. After all, I am blessed beyond a doubt, and I ought to be celebrating my good life with others more.

In order to make it a non-stressful event for me, I want to always keep it simple, but elegant. I absolutely fell in love with this Libbey® Glass Perfect Signature™ Auden Stemware Collection. They are stunning but simple. Libbey is the top glassware manufacturer in the Americas and one of the largest tableware suppliers in the world. They are made exclusively in America. Libbey realizes every occasion – big or small – is an opportunity to make a toast. Whether it be a wedding, holiday, or just a simply gathering, it’s worth a celebration.  

I will toast to that.

How about you?

I have so much to be thankful for this past year and I want to celebrate life with others.


I usually invite my guest over around 5 for cocktails; I dim the lights, light a glowing candle, and put some soft music on in our living room. It’s always exciting to have some fun cocktail napkins for the occasion, too. 

And that’s simply all I do when I invite my friends or family over for a gathering. It’s always a joyous occasion. My guests are not interested in a showy appearance; they simply just want to visit with me. 

You can purchase the Libbey® Glass Perfect Signature™ Auden Stemware Collection at and select in-store locations. I simply went to my local store and they ordered them for me and they were delivered straight to my door. It was so convenient. Not to mention, they gave me free shipping since they did not have them in my closest store.
