No matter if you’re planning an intimate gathering among your closest friends or a huge celebration for most of the neighborhood, now’s a great time to start thinking about how to give 2019 a fine sendoff and welcome all that 2020 might bring.
If you're hosting, the bar area will likely become a gathering point for your party guests. Plus a well-stocked and nicely decorated bar cart can help you serve attendees easily and ensure they have access to everything they need for a night of merriment.
If you’re attending a New Year’s party
rather than hosting one, you can still help stock the bar! Come prepared with a bottle bag
or creatively tissue-paper-wrapped bottle to thank your host or hostess.
Metallic hues give a festive and elegant look to your decorations. Consider using glitter ribbons
to create a bar backdrop or fringe for the border of a bar cart. They make a great photo backdrop that you can quickly create yourself, too.
Capitalize on the metallic theme with a few packs of our cocktail napkins. Our Confetti Happy New Year’s
design with gold and silver accents is inspired by dancing Champagne bubbles. To keep napkins from ending up strewn about, display them in metallic lacquer or acrylic holder
to keep them in a neat stack.
Make sure to stock up on acrylic drinkware, they're all fun clinks and sips with no risk of broken glass crashing the party. Our clear ice bucket and champagne flutes are absolute must-haves for your end-of-the-year libations.
Keep the drinkware and accessories nicely arranged on a bar cart by placing essential items on one of our decorative lacquer trays
. Choose one with a pretty design to complement your New Year’s decorations. When using a dual-level bar cart, aim to have approximately the same amount of items on each section to achieve a nice visual balance.
Place cheers celebrations crackers
around the bar area or at the corners of your cart. Our crackers feature classic Caspari paper with matching ribbon. The shiny exteriors go well with your metallic theme.
Finally, regardless of whether you decorate a bar, a bar cart or both, look for ways to highlight the skillful use of color. For example, small dishes of red berries could give a pretty pop while helping guests garnish their beverages.
Thanks to these ideas, you’re well-equipped to keep your party guests pleased while giving yourself time to enjoy beverages too. Here’s to a fantastic year ahead!
