"My favorite coasters also happen to be pink. Each one is different, and they add so much character to any space they are used in—from a formal dinner setting to having wine in my living room," Valladolid says.

Consider looking at your favorite sipper through rosé-colored glasses. "I love these pink wineglasses accompanied by a beautiful cheese board," Valladolid says. "That's a perfect combo for a girls night at my house."
