The practical host keeps a store of basic partyware for last-minute gatherings, but it's also fun to indulge in a few brash statement items for some instant glamour. The designers at iomoi
do a line of partyware combining their retro-preppy-luxe designs with lucite (spotted on the fabulous I Suwannee
). Some of them even come with monograms...Pictured, from left to right:
• Lucite ice buckets can be customized with your initials, your name, your address or pretty much any message you choose. $68.
• Personalized lucite trays, in tortoise or clear, would be gorgeous all the time, but especially nice for serving drinks or cocktail treats. The indienne-style animal prints are especially cute. $100.
• Coasters in a lucite box would be fun to give out as party favors. They're paper, so they don't last forever, but they sure would perk up a party. $25 for a set of 25.
Soon iomoi will be doing melamine plates with their custom designs, as well as lucite trays with an extra touch of glam: gold hardware!
