My friend Amy made me my first Moscow Mule cocktail. It was love at first sip. And it went on to win the title of my favorite cocktail for quite a while. She threw a Mules and Jewels Stella and Dot party and served the best Moscow Mule recipe to all the guests. It was such a fun idea for a party!

I'm sure that you all have been invited to or thrown a Stella & Dot jewelry party. But have you been to a Mules and Jewels party? Pretty jewelry and Moscow Mules, what more do you need in a party? When I heard they were going to also have a jewelry making station for the kids, I knew I needed to book a date with my niece (the daughter I never had).
A Fun Stella and Dot Party
Moscow Mules are such a fun thing to serve at parties. And this girly theme of Mules and Jewels almost makes me want to have a Stella and Dot Party! Almost. Remember a few years ago when you would get asked to host a jewelry party ALL the time!
It's easy to serve mules at a party. Just set out the ingredients in one location and let your guests make their own. Pre-squeeze the lime juice to keep things speedy. Set out the basic recipe so those who aren't familiar with the drink know what to do. What is great about setting out all these ingredients like this is that each party guest can make them their own way. And there are tons of options for cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks that can be made with these ingredients.
Just don't forget to pick up a few copper mugs. The mules need their own outfit too! Just like you are picking out some new Stella and Dot accessories for yourself, don't forget to accessorize your cups, too, with a simple lime garnish.
Mules and Jewels Stella and Dot Party Idea
Stella & Dot has such cute stuff. I had seen the jewelry before but hadn't seen the purses, bags or scarves before so it was nice to get to see them up close. The colors and patterns are always so vibrant! Of course, your party doesn't have to be strictly Stella and Dot. You could also use this theme for a jewelry-making party for a girl's night in with things you pick up at the craft store.
Hosting a party doesn't have to be hard. Amy kept things easy with just some simple appetizers. She made something similar to this burrata with tomatoes recipe and served a cream cheese pesto spread with grilled bread that was divine! Some delightful bite-sized lemon cakes were the perfect sweet treat to go with the mule cocktails.
Having kids come along is perfect so that you can attend the party to see the jewelry and also not have to worry about getting a sitter.
