We love a party—especially on a warm evening under the trees, swanning about with a delicious cocktail and a chic summer dress. The key to making a party feel like party right from the start: Be intentional with the details. A signature drink in a gorgeous glass goes a long way toward charming even the most jaded guest; so does flattering lighting (candles if you can swing it), along with delicious easy-to-eat food on real plates with real flatware and cloth napkins. Whether it’s a fifty-person soirée or a three-person lawn-chair get-together, these stylish essentials are guaranteed to relax, enchant, and put just about anyone in a festive mood.
The (Sparkling) Aperitif
Light and fresh, this summery take on Chandon’s sparkling wine is crafted with house-made bitters from locally sourced oranges. Poured over ice with a sliver of fresh orange and a sprig of rosemary, it’s the perfect summer sip.
The French Bistro Glass
The unexpected—in this case, an elevated bistro-esque tumbler for a sparkling wine spritz—can be so charming.
Flowers, Flowers, Flowers
Whether you love haphazard wildflowers or a single bloom on chic repeat, it will look incredible in this smooth, slender-necked, minimalist porcelain vase.
The (Easy) Stunner Dress
In gorgeous teal blue printed with a summery floral pattern, this floaty silhouette in 100 percent cotton with a halter-style top and a tiered skirt says, “I dressed up a little, and I’m ready to have fun.”
Marquise diamond studs branch into stems of pavé diamonds on fourteen-karat yellow gold that curl up the ear and dip into partial hoops, creating the illusion of huggies.
These sleek, minimalist goop-exclusive sandals are incredibly plush underfoot, and the straps have a leather lining for a comfortable fit, too; the chic beige contrasts against the dark (Italian-made) leather sole.
The Air-of-Mystery Hat
With an elegant wide brim and woven palm-leaf straw, this boater is as sexy and chic as they come.
The Lip Tint
It looks bright in the adorable tube, but this citrusy balm is super sheer; the translucent color lights up your whole face (use it on cheeks, too) in seconds but looks totally natural on lips and skin.
The Flirty Lashes
This ultraluxe blackest-black mascara leaves your lashes gorgeous, sexy, and super defined.
The Cheeky Color
Sheer, nourishing, all-natural pigments create the most beautiful just-bitten flush.
The Magic Frizz Fix
This French-girl secret weapon gets rid of frizz and nourishes hair—smooth it into wet hair, or on dry hair, use it to tamp down flyaways and instantly revive your whole look.
The Summer Scent
This portable perfume rollerball juxtaposes pink grapefruit, neroli, and ripe cassis berries with gunpowder tea and Turkish rose absolute—it’s just gorgeous.
The Cocktail Plates
A pretty scalloped edge, a dotted rim, and a chic, goop-exclusive pattern in lush green on exquisite but sturdy porcelain.
The Glamorous Dinner Plates
Patterned in a gorgeous goop-exclusive lush green on exquisite but sturdy porcelain.
The Elegantly Simple Napkins
Fresh white cotton with soft fringed edges and chic green stitching.
The Vintage-Inspired Flatware
Crafted in Italy from brushed matte stainless steel with a classic curved handle at the bottom of each piece, these feel just beautiful in your hand.
The Flickering Candlelight
Mix tall and short candlesticks—artfully thin stems contrast with wide bases—in brushed matte stainless steel.
