You can learn a lot about a couple from the things you see on their wedding registry. This holds true for Jennifer Lawrence and her fiancé, art gallery director Cooke Maroney, who just shared their wishlist with Amazon. A bevy of things that make entertaining easy, from a pasta maker and a fire pit to more expected essentials, like everyday dinnerware and gilded flatware, indicate that their top priority is being able to bring people together for a meal at home. Lawrence confirmed our prediction, telling Amazon she loves to host, whether it’s “a few friends for drinks or a large dinner party.”
Lawrence may have a busy schedule filming movies (we’re already counting down the days until she plays Elizabeth Holmes in Bad Blood), but she’s definitely found time to figure out how to make a homemade dish feel like a special occasion. Snag a few of her essentials and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a host with the most, too.
The Cheese Tray
A marble serving platter can transform even a single hunk of cheddar and some crackers into an elevated appetizer.
The Fancy Flatware
This not-so-silverware feels especially modern with its long, streamlined handles and a matte gold finish.
The Pared-Back Plates
Forget the overly luxurious china—a good set of simple dinnerware can work for both casual weekdays and parties, if you style it right. With their slightly irregular edges, these gray plates have an effortless, organic look.
The Classy Carafe
Not only will this fancy decanter aerate your wine perfectly, it will also make it seem top shelf—even if you only grabbed a $10 bottle.
The Sleek Carry-All
Desserts, extra napkins, even a tea service—this serving tray can hold whatever you need it to when you run out of table space. Better yet: you can use it again when you want to eat leftovers in bed the next morning.
