Make their next dinner party even more special with these incredible (and charitable) housewares.
New china, endless serving platters, maybe even a decanter or two—the typical wedding registry leaves couples (and their kitchens) stocked with the necessities that make at-home entertaining possible. But if your couple loves to host guests more than the average twosome, help fill their new home with unexpected and delightful entertaining wares. Even if they’ve already registered for what seems like every possible type of cocktail glass (coupe cups—why not?), there are still some fun gadgets that they’ve likely left off the list.
But what are these necessities? We asked Beth Helmstetter, an L.A.-based wedding planner and owner of Beth Helmstetter Events, to help us curate a collection of entertaining goodies that any couple with future dinner party aspirations would love to unwrap. Most of her picks are ‘are designed sustainably, benefiting global causes,’ says Helmstetter, founder of The Good Beginning, an online wedding registry for charitable causes, ‘while still being festive, functional, and stylish additions to your next celebration.’ That means these gifts don’t just look good—they do good, too.
From bottles of wine that give back and fair-trade serving boards to unbelievably beautiful textiles that provide girls with an education and sheets that are kind to the earth, Helmstetter’s selections will wow your newlyweds. Study, shop, and maybe stock up on a few for yourself!
