Saturday, June 13, is National Rosé Day—and while it may have been a few years since you rocked your favorite “rosé all day” tee, that doesn’t mean celebrating this sweet summer nectar has gone out of style.
With quarantine restrictions lifting and everyone itching to get out and enjoy the sunshine, it seems like the perfect time to throw a little socially distant, rosé-themed soiree—not only for the holiday, but also for your sanity.
So call up your quarantine pod, head to the park, or make a date at your place to celebrate this all-important wine lover’s jubilee. And be sure to snag at least a few of these rosé-themed must-haves before cracking open that first bottle.
1. Copper chilling tubs
Keep your bottles cool in the blazing-hot sun with a set of these Old Dutch International galvanized copper party tubs ($50 from Bed, Bath & Beyond). These copper beauties will not only have your drinks feeling fresh, but they’ll also look mighty fine doing it.
2. Fun flamingo corkscrew
You’re going to need something to pop open all those delicious bottles of dry, sparkling, and juicy-sweet rosé, so why not stick with the theme and make it something pink? We can’t get enough of this flashy flamingo corkscrew bottle opener ($13 from Amazon), and we have a feeling that once you use it, you’ll never go back to your boring traditional one again.
3. Rose-tinted wine glasses
Leave your mismatched set for another day, and opt instead for this gorgeous four-piece rosé wine glass set ($40 from Crate and Barrel). This stylish stemware has just the right rose-colored hue, making these glasses look good even between pours.
4. Outdoor wine table
There will be no more crying over spilled rosé if you manage to get one of these portable outdoor wine tables ($58 from Uncommon Goods). With two glass holders, a designated space for the bottle, and even room for snack plates, this foldable table is a game changer for any outdoor wine enthusiast.
5. Tasseled wine charms
Drink sharing is definitely out, so make it easy for folks to keep track of their glasses with a set of these handmade boho tassel wine charms ($17 from Etsy). These festive ornaments help to ensure that, while everyone is drinking pink, your guests (and their glasses) continue to observe social distancing.
6. Rose quartz wine stopper
Rather than fighting with corks to go back in their bottles, opt for a few of these rose quartz wine stoppers ($19 from Amazon) to keep the theme (and the stress-free vibes) going strong.
7. Handmade picnic blanket
Set the chic outdoor vibes of your vino party with one of these gorgeous block-printed khadi picnic blankets ($50 from Etsy). Inspired by traditional Indian textiles, this handmade throw has just the right amount of summery blush to have your guests sipping on the lawn in style.
8. Embroidered outdoor pillows
Give your guests a chance to kick back and put their feet up with a set of these embroidered outdoor throw pillows ($73 from Wayfair). These tribal-inspired pillows are pink, treated for the outdoors, and ready to party.
9. Gourmet cheese platter
Yes, you can actually order gourmet cheese online— and we can’t recommend it enough. Keep your socially distant party guests happy (and fed) with a gourmet cheese platter like this Best of Cellars at Jasper Hill cheese collection ($55 from Williams Sonoma). This trio of tasty cheeses is handcrafted in Vermont and New Hampshire, and is sure to pair perfectly with your favorite pink pours.
10. Agate cheese board
Take your presentation to the next level by getting those cheeses out of their wrappers and onto this stunning agate cheese board ($78 from Anthropologie). A natural gleaming alternative to boring traditional cheese boards, this rose quartz wonder is perfect for creating a memorable table setting like no other.
11. Strawberry chocolate bark
Made with strawberry white chocolate and popping sugar, this strawberry fizz bark ($12.50 from Kollar Chocolates) from one of the country’s premier chocolatiers is just the sweet pick-me-up your party needs after a few glasses of bubbly.
12. Wine-cooler picnic basket
Keep your wines, cheeses, and chocolates cool for hours in this luxury wicker wine chiller picnic basket ($85 from Amazon). A classic wicker basket on the outside with an insulated cooler on the inside, this picnic carrier (with a lid that doubles as a cheese board) is the answer to all of your afternoon garden parties.
13. Wine-scented candles
Have the rosé vibes going strong well into the evening with this delicious BonBon rosé wine-scented candle ($14 from Amazon). Perfect for those last-call glasses, this sweet-smelling candle will have you and all of your guests ending the night living la vie en rose.
