We think a lot of people would agree when we say that rainy days tend to ruin after-work plans. From accidentally getting your new suede shoes wet to getting stuck in long traffic jams, there are countless little things that can put you in a gloomy mood and make you find excuses not to go out. 

Don't let the gray weather stop you from having fun with your friends! Make it work to your advantage by inviting them over for a warm and toasty coffee party instead. To help you out, we've rounded a few tips and the right products that will surely meet all your hosting needs.

Although ordinary porcelain mugs get the job done, these nifty cups can be extra handy for keeping your fingers from getting burnt. Bonus: the clear glass is a great way to showcase the layers of your coffee and cocoa concoctions! 

RL Tip: If you're apprehensive about dirt getting in between the handles, no need to worry, the cup and the handles of this piece can be separated for easy cleaning.

Everyone likes their coffee a different way—some prefer a strong blend while others love a sweet cup. Make sure guests can mix their own drink to fit their taste by putting out adorable sugar canisters on the table. 

RL Tip: You don't need to be limited to sweeteners! Try filling up small mason jars with cocoa powder, creamer, or cinammon and display them on a wooden cutting board for a rustic touch!

Set a light and fun mood for your get-together with pastries served in quirky dinnerware. If you decide to play a few rounds of Monopoly Deal, these small plates can help leave enough room for each player’s cards and tokens.

RL Tip: Feel free to mix and match different plate designs for an even more eclectic setting.

Serve snacks on an elevated cake stand to maximize the table’s surface for your games. Don't forget to have a thermos nearby for a quick refill, too!  

RL Tip: Cake stands aren't just for layered cakes—you can also use it as a platter for smaller snacks like pieces of biscotti and cookies.
