Hello, Brides! It’s Ali Hollins here from Love You, Mean It! One of the things that my fiancé, Ben, and I love to do together is cook. Let me start by saying that we are both still learning! Once we started cooking more often, we quickly learned that there were so many tools that we still needed. That’s when I decided to partner with William-Sonoma to find the must-have items for our very first kitchen!
When we went to Williams-Sonoma to register, one of the first things we knew we had to have was the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Copper Stand Mixer. Not only is it powerful and have endless add-ons, but it’s also absolutely gorgeous. It quickly jumped to the top of our list! I love to bake everything from muffins to cakes and have always dreamed of owning a KitchenAid stand mixer of my own. The copper finish really stood out to me and I knew that it would be a focal point in our kitchen forever.
Another thing that Ben and I love to do together is entertain. I most look forward to the nights where we have friends over for dinner. Personally, I believe that a great dinner party always starts with good cocktails! I love the open kitchen tumblers because they’re a versatile size for any mixed drink or cocktail you’re serving. Not only that, but they can be used for so much more than just drinks! I even use mine for small flower arrangements or to hold vegetables for dipping! Just like the tumblers, the Encore wine glasses are the perfect sleek, yet durable, wine glasses to have on hand for entertaining. If there is one thing you over register for, it should be wine glasses. I’ve found you can never have too many!
When I know friends are headed our way, I love to tie everything together with pieces from the Marble and Copper collection. I always use the ice bucket and wine bottle coaster for the drinks. Once everyone has a drink in-hand, I love to start with a cheeseboard on our monogrammed board and include the coordinating cheese knives. These pieces are ones I know we will have forever. Not to mention, they also elevate our serving wear from what we use every day.
