The at home bar is becoming popular fast, with thousands of images appearing on Pinterest showing how people have styled their own home bar or cocktail space. They’re the perfect way to add some class and an extra bit of something to a night in or a dinner hosted at home. Cocktail tables, bar carts and wine trunks are becoming readily available and are looking more sleek and stylish than ever so this is a trend that we can’t get enough of.
Follow our five top tips to create an at home bar that is ready for dancing and daiquiris, but also looks incredible and compliments the rest of your home decor. Remember to keep things practical, fun and stylish.
1. Choose your space
Unfortunately, most houses don’t come with a bar built in, so investing in furniture that houses your bar accessories and creates an entertainment space is your first step. A good place to start is a sideboard or space shelf. If you want to perfect the look, Brissi’s classic furniture collection features a stunning wine and cocktail trunk, a perfect centrepiece of any party that is sure to impress your guests. Include an arrangement of silk faux flowers from our Fleur de Brissi range to add a further touch of glamour to your handcrafted wine and cocktail trunk.
2. Glamorous Glassware
Glassware is an important part of evening entertainment; serving a drink in the wrong style of glass would be a rookie mistake. Avoid this by checking out Brissi’s extensive crystal range with many different styles of glassware, from martini cocktails to champagne flutes. Don’t forget to decant some of your favourite spirits and wines into larger glassware, to add an authentic homely feel to your evening.
3. Rest your Glasses down
Provide your guests with a stylish and chic table to rest their drinks upon. Brissi’s Harvey Gold Cocktail table with a gold sheen and mirrored top makes a stunning piece for your brand new evening décor. It will be a staple piece of furniture in your home for years to come.
Add an extra splash of glamour to your home ready to impress your guests. Consider small but significant touches such as lighting candles, whether they are scented and serene or placed in a candelabra to create soft, atmospheric lighting. Also consider adding an ice bucket to keep the drinks chilled all the way through the night.
5. Serving a night to remember
Greet your guests with flutes of champagne served on our trays that come in a variety of styles and sizes that are sure to suit your décor.
