The Art of Hosting the Perfect Summer Party with Thrifts & Threads

“There is truly an art to hosting the perfect summer party,” Style Society influencer Brittany Xavier of the blog Thrifts & Threads says. It involves a seasonal menu, a chic aesthetic, and most of all, beverages that are on point. 
Taking inspiration from the Ecco Domani x alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet limited edition bottle, she devised an unexpectedly elegant – and eminently Instagram-able – summer soiree. Get her top five tips for creating the ultimate summer gathering and her recipe for Frozen Peach Cocktail – a totally fresh way to mix your Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio this season.
And to help you pull off the perfect summer party, Brittany curated a selection of fun accessories, from the limited edition alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet striped wine tote inspired by her collaboration with Ecco Domani to an instant camera with confetti-scattered film.
