Hauste: The Ladies Behind Your Next Insta-Worthy Party

Hauste: The Ladies Behind Your Next Insta-Worthy Party

When it comes to hosting, we all have our own way of doing things. But sometimes, we want to mix it up and do something different . That's where Hauste comes in. Behind this amazing brand are two brilliant and inspiring women: Hanna and Lea. These two sisters are the creative minds behind Hauste, and they're on a mission to bring back the dinner party. We had the privilege to work with them and get to know them, and we just know you're going to love them as much as we do! So without further ado, meet Hanna and Lea of Hauste.

Tell us about yourselves and what you do?

We’re sisters from California who have been entertaining-obsessed pretty much since birth. Our mom is the ultimate hostess and has taught us the ins and outs of hosting dinner parties. We started Hauste in September of 2021 because we felt like the entertaining space was lacking trendy but classic, aesthetic but attainable, and ultimately - a younger take on dinner parties.

Hauste is your modern guide to entertaining. We offer complete how-to-host guides for dinner parties, curated party concepts with shoppable links so you don’t end up in the endless Pinterest scroll, and fully customizable digital template downloads to step up your hosting game! Our goal is to be the one-stop shop for every kind of host. 

What’s a common belief about hosting that you passionately disagree with?

That everything has to be perfect! We know entertaining can be stressful (which is why we started Hauste) so having a plan to follow is SO helpful. But even with a plan, things can go wrong! Your timing could be off, the chicken is a little dry, the wine isn’t quite chilled enough – the list goes on. But guess what… your guests aren’t there for perfection! They’re there for good times with good friends. Just remember practise makes (almost) perfect, and just enjoy yourself!   

What is your best life hack when hosting a dinner party?

One of our favorite hacks when hosting a dinner party is making sure the dishwasher is empty before your party begins. That way when you’re starting to clean up, all you have to do is load & close! There is nothing worse than having to empty your dishwasher just to put a full load in after a night of fun! 

 

What are your go-to pieces when decorating your table?

For a classic dinner party table, we usually like to keep it pretty minimal and let the food do the talking. Always fresh flowers of course, and then either tealights or taper candles. For more formal meals we’ll opt for a full tablecloth, but we ALWAYS use cloth napkins; they are non-negotiable. 

You’re hosting a three-course dinner party, what's on the menu?

This is so hard!!! There are so many recipes in our family that we could create dinner party menus forever (and we plan on it). Let’s say it’s summertime, we would probably make our family’s famous grilled artichoke with lemon aioli for an appetizer. This is such a staple! For dinner, probably either a steak with a big green salad or fish with fresh veggies. For dessert, our mom makes this incredible Swedish chocolate cake with raspberry sauce and fresh whipped cream. It’s to die for and always a go-to for dinner parties. 

What would you pick for your last meal?

Lea: I could eat sushi for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the rest of my life so definitely sushi!!! There are just so many things to choose from and I’m obsessed with rice and soy sauce. 

Hanna: Definitely anything comfort food, and by comfort food, I mean anything our mom cooks.
