Catching up with close friends gets harder as schedules get busier and people live farther apart from each other. So when there’s an excuse to host a stylish get-together—like the Fourth of July—take full advantage! And that’s exactly what Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen did. Taking to Chandon’s limited-edition rosé and brut bottles—each of which is covered in pink or blue stripes—for style and décor inspiration, she dreamed up a ridiculously chic way to give the holiday a fresh spin, cocktail recipes included!

If you’re hosting a bash of any sort, you want to make sure you look and feel your best. The key to doing so? Opt for classic cuts and prints, like Claire’s fit-and-flare skirt and striped top. And never forget to top off your look with fun shoes and accessories.
“Instead of the classic red, white, and blue color palette, I took inspiration from Chandon’s new magenta-and-white rosé bottle and swapped the color blue for chambray, which speaks to an unfussy elegant vibe,” says Claire.
Whether you’re hosting a big or small get-together, having a stocked assortment of drinks is necessary. “Any excuse to get together and enjoy delicious food and drinks is a go,” says Claire. “The cocktails were the key to the evening, keeping everyone in lively spirits.”
