The Perfect Bar for a Holiday Party

Throwing a party this holiday season? I’ve rounded up my favorite holiday bar essentials and a few tips! Check it out:)

Holiday Bar Essentials


BAR CART — If you don’t have a bar space, invest in a bar cart! They are functional and easy to stow away. I love this one from Target.

ACCESSORIES — If you are serving cocktails, I highly recommend getting a set of bar tools. Make it easy for your guests to measure, shake, and strain their own drinks. This gold set from Urban Outfitters is adorable!

GLASSWARE — It’s a must. Solo cups were cool in college, but it’s time to step up our game. Provide the appropriate glassware depending on what you’re serving. I’m stoked to use my new copper moscow mule mugs from Nordstrom (ok, not technically glassware) on New Years!

CHILL OUT — Make sure you have a party bucket for beer, champagne, and other beverages that need to be chilled. I like the hammered gold bucket for a holiday party, but you can swap it out for a galvanized bucket in the summer.

KID FRIENDLY — If you are hosting families, make sure the kiddos have a cute mug to sip hot chocolate out of. Don’t forget the marshmallows!

If you couldn’t tell, I’m loving gold and copper accents this year. It looks perfect for Christmas and New Year. Before you go, check out some cute bar set ups I stumbled upon!

P.S. While I’m in Dallas with my family for the holidays, we are taking a road trip to Waco to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos. Eeeeek! I think I’m more excited for that than for Christmas! Stay tuned for a post about our trip.
