The arrival of summer is the perfect excuse to get together with your girlfriends! However, we’re feeling tired of all the rushed happy hours after work. With a little help from Rue La La, we’re hosting an epic girls’ night in—and you can too.  A thoughtful, feminine fete is easy to throw with Rue La La’s cocktail essentials! Trust us… this event will be one for the books.

First off, make it memorable by decorating beforehand with festive, fashion-forward accents. Deck the table with gold candlespink confetti, and super-cute ceramic lipsticks. Serve drinks (we suggest a Classic Mojito!!) in pink & black glassware— and don’t forget the stripey straws! Display snacks on this gorgeous marbled tray, and set your Spotify to play the summer’s top hits!

Of course, you should never send your guests away empty handed. A flirty tote filled with our favorite summertime essentials—bright nail polish, poolside reading material, and a coconut water for the following morning should do the trick! So, who’s ready to party??
