Blogger of the Week: Set Sip Serve
How did you come up with the brilliant idea of Set, Sip, Serve?
After going to a casual dinner party of a friend, Benton woke up in the middle of the night inspired to create a site where people could find ideas for entertaining at home and be able to purchase. Benton and I LOVE to entertain, from mom playdates to adult dinner parties. We realized after hours and hours of scouring pinterest and blogging sites that there needed to be a “go-to” entertaining site where one can find everything they need for everyday entertaining and family gatherings big and small. Hence, building SetSipServe.
We chatted with these lovely ladies to find out what their must-have items to throw the perfect Spring BBQ! Find out what they said below:
Mark & Graham Cotton Monogrammed Napkins ($48.00-89.00)- We are all about the details! We think it is super important to have personal touches even at BBQ’s.

Rattan Lanterns Serena & Lily ($28.00-88.00)- Ambience is EVERYTHING and lighting is the key to creating the perfect setting. Outdoor BBQ’s need to be lit and these rattan lanterns give enough natural light and a cool look to a dinner table, buffet table or outdoor bar. BUY HERE!
