The bar nook in your home should be a place of sophisticated socializing and fun. Instead of just stashing my bottles and glasses away haphazardly, I like this space to be glamorous and creative. After all, holiday party is here and this easily gets to be the most popular area of the house! I’m a big believer in tiny details making a great impact, follow these 3 simple steps to creating an amazing home bar:
1. Keep A Fully Stocked Bar
When I know that I’m entertaining there are a few staple alcohols, mixers, garnishes and glassware that I always have in stock. It helps you become more creative with the drinks you whip up, and you’ll have something for everyone. Watch this video to see everything you need to stock your bar in less than 1 minute.
2. Add Pretty Details
Again, it’s all in the details! The smallest change, like adding a few gemstones or flowers to the space, can lively everything up. I personally love gemstone bar accessories (P.S. they’re great gifts too!).
3. Use A Chalkboard!
Ok, I’m a big fan of using chalkboards around the house. I especially love them in the bar area because you can write down a quirky quote or even a menu of specialty drinks if you’re having friends over. They always add a cool, homey touch to my space.
