Rosanna Luxe Moderne Hexagonal Serving Tray - Value $58
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.
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.)
I love this piece! We set it up with cheese, dried fruit, almonds and honey per the Mostess booklet recommendation:
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
This is one of those items I didn't know existed, but now I'll use it for every champagne bottle in my future!
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!
And it is a gorgeous gold, too.
Now that we have the champagne open, it's time to make a Mostess cocktail!
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.
To make this, you mix 1/2 oz Lavender Lemon Syrup, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1 oz gin, and champagne.
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.
Bee Local Honey Sticks - Value $4.50
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.
And the rest of the sticks are going on our bar for a easy cocktail sweetener.
Mostess Spring Cocktail Napkins - Value $20?
These cocktail napkins are exclusive to the box!
They are 100% linen with adorable little, embroidered bumble bees.
Bambeco Recycled Shot Glasses - Value $24
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:
Admittedly, I don't drink shots often, so I was happy to see Mostess recommended some alternative uses for these glasses:
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+!)
