by Stephanie Montes

How you throw a cocktail party says a lot about your style, and when it comes to planning, two things are for sure. Firstly, your drink choices need to be top-tier. Secondly, your party theme has to complement the space in which you’re hosting. Not sure where to begin? Start by shopping the Chloe Wine Collection’s range of reds, whites and sparkling wines, then get your space red carpet-party ready courtesy of these curated shopping lists.

Be The Hostess With The Mostess

Style: Eclectic

No viewing party is complete without chic napkins, candles and serving dishes to boot. Play up your eclectic style with mix-and-match patterns and textures in a cohesive color scheme. The best part? With so many colors in your palette, you're sure to coordinate with a handful of the gowns that come down the red carpet.

Style: Glam

Set the mood with glam touches of faux fur, reflective surfaces and gold everything. Be sure to load up on pretty glasses, a serving tray and a bottle opener disguised as a gilded masquerade mask. There's simply no better way to channel your inner old-Hollywood starlet.

Style: Shabby Chic

Get your humble abode party ready with serving trays, candle holders, coasters and a cozy throw blanket. Use a variety of textures, finishes and mixed metals to accentuate your current shabby-chic decor. Now that your guests are comfortable, the red-carpet commentary is sure to flow freely.

Style: Rustic

All you need to get your home looking—and smelling—right for company is a wooden cutting board that doubles as a serving tray, an earthy candle, and don't forget the chalk board to tally your guests' votes for the best-dressed celebs. You can't go wrong with textured glass surfaces, wood accents and a palette of earth tones.

Style: Modern

There's no better way to celebrate old-Hollywood glam than a classic black-and-white color scheme. Stage your viewing party with printed throw pillows and candles in achromatic geo prints. Even your favorite on-screen favorites would be envious of your impeccable taste.
