Put away the mulled cider and get out the cocktail shaker—spring is right around the corner. Take advantage of the last few weeks you’ll spend indoors by gathering your favorite people for a happy hour at home. "After a visit and laughter with pals over a drink, the world feels complete," says Leela Cyd, author of the new entertaining bible, Food with Friends.
Cyd's new book is full of menu and décor ideas for a just-because kind of party, and InStyle has the invitations covered with our shop on Paperless Post featuring a stylish edit that includes e-cards by Oscar de la Renta, Kelly Wearstler, and kate spade new york.
Browse some of our favorite invites below, and head over to the InStyle x Paperless Post collection for our full curation of e-cards (paper options available for some designs). You'll find more hosting inspiration from Leela Cyd—and a recipe for a hibiscus sparkle cocktail—in our March issue, on newsstands Feb. 12.
