Mostess Subscription Box Review – February 2016
Mostess is a brand new subscription service for people who love to entertain! It’s a bi-monthly package filled with curated party items and ideas to help you host beautiful gatherings.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Mostess
The Cost: $120
COUPON: Save 20% off the Spring box! No code needed – sign up here!
The Products: “4-6 handpicked and perfectly coordinated items that you can use to host a gathering in your home. Items could include cocktail ingredients, decorative items, snacks, stationery, and more.”
Ships to: US (for free!)
First of all, I think this is the most luxe packaging I have ever seen on a subscription box! Even the card inserts are made of some kind of fancy textured cardstock.
Second, this is Mostess’ “VIP Box,” which is their first mailing. The price for this box was $120, and there are still some available. It is not yet possible to subscribe to Mostess, they are still collecting people on their mailing list. I’m not sure if $120 will be their regular price in the future, and I don’t know if they ship outside the US, or what those costs might look like if they do. As I said, this is the first box from a brand new service, and I’m sure all will be revealed in the weeks to come.
The inside of the welcome card has information on the items included in this mailing.
This additional card was included, with tips on how to be an exceptional hostess. I think my hostess game seriously just leved up upon learning the word “tablescape”!
On the back of the card are recipes for two cocktails, one with and one without alcohol. Both use some of the items included in the package. That’s so handy!
Thank You Cards by Sugar Paper – Value $28
These are letterpress notecards with lined envelopes, and are a really special way to say thank you! They are really elegant.
Cocktail Napkins by K Style Design – Value $32
I’ve never had any kind of cloth cocktail napkins, much less 100% organic European linen cocktail napkins! The black contrast rolled hems make them look really sharp!
Bourbon Cocktail Cherries by Jack Rudy – Value $16
Aromatic Bitters by Jack Rudy – Value $12
This is so funny, but I received both of these items in a different subscription box about a week ago! Which is fine, actually, because both of these items are welcome additions to our home bar. My husband absolutely loves these cocktail cherries!
Dore’ Nesting Hexagon Bowls by Rosanna – Value $36
Wow, these bowls are beautiful! They are just perfect for serving finger foods. I love the gold and white colors together!
Dore’ Hexagon Platter – Value $30
This serving tray is the perfect compliment to the nesting bowls, and will look amazing with drinks on it. I also think the hexagon motif makes these pieces look really chic and modern. I love it!
Verdict: I think the inaugural VIP Box from Mostess is a huge success! I love everything they sent, and I think with just a few additional items, I could whip up a very classy cocktail hour in my home with 2-3 friends. The value of the items comes to $164, so the price is well worth it. If you love throwing memorable and lovely gatherings, I think Mostess is going to be an amazing subscription for you to check out!
