The Weekly Covet: Elevated Home Entertaining

Once a week, we ask our editors to share the items they’ve been loving or lusting after—whether it’s a new skincare product we’re dying to try or a travel essential we can’t live without. Consider “The Weekly Covet” your editor-approved wish list for beauty, travel, fashion, and everything in between.


Marble Lazy Susan

“Hear me out: Lazy Susans are a vastly underrated piece for stylish service. Pop it in the middle of the table at a small dinner party to make serving family style easier, set it up as an easy-reach cheeseboard, or top with bottles and garnishes for a DIY martini bar. I guarantee, everybody will want to give it a spin.” — Lauren Hubbard, Contributor


Thomas Keller Signature Collection 4-Piece Forged Straight Edge Steak Knife

“Every host needs a decent pair of steak knives. This Cangshan set has the endorsement of the Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller, the culinary virtuoso behind Per Se and The French Laundry. I came across them not in Napa Valley or New York City but in Surfside, Florida, the hamlet near Miami Beach where Keller recently opened his latest outpost at the historic (and revamped) Surf Club. They might be the most efficient way to split the New York strip steak for two.” — Erik Maza, Executive Style Director


Monets Garden Luxe Cheeseboard

“I will never host anything without a cheese board. For my next dinner party I have my eye on this gorgeous marble board by Michael Aram to effortlessly turn the the cheese course into an art form.”—Leena Kim, Leena Kim, Associate Editor


Bon Bon glass cocktail coupe

“I am always on the hunt for fun and unique cocktail glasses, and these blown glass Helle Mardahl glasses are some of the coolest I’ve seen.” — Breana Crews, Freelance Fashion Assistant


Designer’s Choice Bouquet

“When in doubt, send flowers. You can never go wrong. They’ll brighten every occasion, enhance any room. Belle Fleur New York is my go-to local florist for special arrangements for friends and loved ones, and for those moments when I want to indulge by dressing up my living room. The Designer’s Choice bouquet never disappoints.” — Erik Maza, Executive Style Director


Elsa Peretti® Thumbprint Water Cup

“It’s no secret how much I admire Elsa Peretti’s jewelry designs but her pieces for home are also treasures. Imagine these water cups on a table set also with her silverware and then watch for Halston coming through the door. Just make sure no one throws their coat into the fireplace. ” – Stellene Volandes, Editor-in-chief


The Nash

“This year has been an explosion of celebrations (wedding showers! baby showers! engagement parties!) but most have been low-key, at-home affairs. As a frequent host, I’ve embraced tabletop rental services for larger groups—my own place-settings tap out at 10. It also takes the stress out of assembling everything advance and adds that effortless polish every host wants to have.” — Olivia Hosken, Style & Interiors Writer


Fortessa La Jolla Appetizer Plates Set of 4 Amethyst

“A pretty set of appetizer plates sets the tone for an evening right off the bat—even if your apps are all store-bought.” — Lauren Hubbard, Contributor


Estelle Colored Wine Stemware – Set of 6

“The easiest form of entertaining, especially in NYC apartments, is drinks. I am obsessed with Estelle Colored Glass and how much more fun the stemware is compared to standard versions. I opted for the mix and matched set but she has colors to match every interior aesthetic which also makes them great gifts.” — Cassandra Hogan, Fashion Assistant


Punch Needle Coasters

“The party lover and the clean freak in me are constantly at war. Ok, that might be overdramatic, but I am partial to using coasters, even at soirees. (I can neither confirm nor deny that my friends have affectionately nicknamed me ‘The Coaster Guard’… I’m fun, I swear!) I don’t know if I’m qualified to label these handmade punch needle coasters as ‘elevated,’ per se, but they sure are cute! I’m willing to bet they’ll earn more than a few compliments at your next wine night.” — Meg Donohue, Contributor


Cocktail Trolley, 1950s

“If you want to be a great entertainer, then you need a well-appointed bar. And not a hodge-podge of clutter jammed in the corner. A beautiful bar car not only adds flourish to your space but will really get the party going once you up your amateur cocktail crafting skills.”—Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital Editor
