Rosanna Luxe Moderne Hexagonal Serving Tray – Value $58

Mostess-spring-2017-0021

Like all Rosanna pieces I’ve received in subscription boxes so far, this tray comes in gorgeous packaging so it’s ready to gift if you aren’t keeping it for yourself.

Mostess-spring-2017-0022

This porcelain piece measures 13″ x 7 3/4″ x 3/4″.

And it has a gold foil trim:

Because of the metal detail, this tray is hand wash only (no microwave.)

Mostess-spring-2017-0025

I love this piece! We set it up with cheese, dried fruit, almonds and honey per the Mostess booklet recommendation:

Mostess-spring-2017-0052

This could work well as a bathroom or vanity display, too. Right now it’s at my kitchen counter next to my sink, making my hand soaps look a little more organized and classy!

VISKI Champagne Puller – Value $22

Mostess-spring-2017-0035

This is one of those items I didn’t know existed, but now I’ll use it for every champagne bottle in my future!

Mostess-spring-2017-0036

If you are like me and find the suspense of opening a champagne bottle to be a bit scary, this tool takes care of that!

Mostess-spring-2017-0038

And it is a gorgeous gold, too.

Mostess-spring-2017-0048 Mostess-spring-2017-0049

Now that we have the champagne open, it’s time to make a Mostess cocktail!

Mostess-spring-2017-0045

Royal Rose Lavender Lemon Simple Syrup – Value $11.50

This syrup is 100% organic, and I love the lavender and lemon combination. We used it to make the Royal Rose Lavender French 75 cocktail from the booklet.

Mostess-spring-2017-0050

To make this, you mix 1/2 oz Lavender Lemon Syrup, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1 oz gin, and champagne.

Mostess-spring-2017-0051

I decided to skip the gin in this cocktail to keep it a little lighter, and I loved the results. Super refreshing, and the lavender gives it an unexpected flavor.

Mostess-spring-2017-0030

Bee Local Honey Sticks – Value $4.50

Mostess-spring-2017-0032

I’ve sampled this honey before and it is lovely. We used it with the cheese spread as a drizzle topping and it was a hit.

Mostess-spring-2017-0033

And the rest of the sticks are going on our bar for a easy cocktail sweetener.

Mostess Spring Cocktail Napkins – Value $20?

Mostess-spring-2017-0027

These cocktail napkins are exclusive to the box!

Mostess-spring-2017-0028

They are 100% linen with adorable little, embroidered bumble bees.

Bambeco Recycled Shot Glasses – Value $24

Mostess-spring-2017-0041

These tall shot glasses are made from recycled soda bottles! Each glass is hand blown with a crackle accent so they each have a one-of-a-kind look:

Mostess-spring-2017-0042 Mostess-spring-2017-0043

Admittedly, I don’t drink shots often, so I was happy to see Mostess recommended some alternative uses for these glasses:

Mostess-spring-2017-0053

Mini vases! I love the look of several of these as a centerpiece. They would work well in a bathroom to organize q-tips, makeup brushes, etc., too.

Verdict: I think Mostess does an excellent job at curation, setting a scene, and inspiring you with lots of tips, recipes, and ideas. This is one of those boxes that just feels special throughout the entire unboxing experience.

The value works out to about $140, which isn’t too much higher than the cost of the box, but still puts you ahead by about $15. I wouldn’t recommend this box if you are looking for something high value, but if you are looking for a special quarterly box that is very thoughtful, I think Mostess is great. (And this box would make a fabulous gift – the presentation is A+!)

What do you think of the Spring Mostess Box?

  1. Shots glasses are cute. Would definitely use it as what Liz did, mini vases.

  2. This looks like a really nice box

  3. It’s strange that they chose shot classes rather than something you’d use to make the cocktails in.

    Still a lovely box though!

  4. I loved this box…this is one of my favorite subscriptions
