23 ESSENTIALS FOR THE HOLIDAY BAR

Whether you’re hosting a full-on party or just having a few friends over for dinner, a well-appointed bar is essential to a good holiday party. I’ve always found the bar to be the place where people seem to gather, making it the perfect spot to add in a few festive touches with tools and accessories. First things first: glassware. For bubbly, switch out your usual glasses for these festive flutes or this set of coups. (Side note: either set would make a great gift, too!) I’ve also found some great vintage glassware on OKL lately. How fun are these?

Next up: gold! Since gold is such a sure way to make something feel more holiday, I love adding in accents like this bottle opener and these cocktail picks. For linens, I always throw in some red Zebras, and I love pulling out my monogrammed cocktail napkins (I have them in Kelly Green!). Finally, I like to set out fun extras like gold straws and these stir sticks. Once you’ve got all that covered, make a big batch of this. Cheers!
