Hello Everyone! Every year we tend to host lots of friends and family at our home. This year we are all about entertaining more efficiently so that friends and family can enjoy themselves. Today i’m partnering with Overstock to share my built in bar and must have bar area pieces.
Since we both have a lot of friends and family that like to come over for the holidays this built in bar area was a major seller for us. While this bar area sits next to our festive formal dining room the bar area was still needing some pizzaz. The first key piece to have in a bar area is the most important…the wine cooler! The built in wine rack above is great for reds but not everyone likes reds. I like to think about what my friends and family would like and make sure to have a bit of everything. This wine cooler is the perfect place to store all of those sparkling and white wines. There is nothing worse then having to saying” I have white but it’s not chilled”. Did I mention that this fridge is not only energy efficient it also holds up to 52 bottles of wine?
If you have friends that aren’t really wine drinkers then I would suggest a decanter. Decanters are great to add bourbons or whisky. To make it easier for guests to serve themselves I love having glasses close by as well. I ended up placing this copper detailed decanter set on a marble tray to display it. The decanter set also comes in silver and gold. I have been on a mixed metal frenzy lately and can’t get enough of the pops of copper.
Now that this area is complete with all the bar essentials it had made entertaining a breeze. Overstock has all of these items and more so make sure to check them out for all your holiday entraining needs.
I’m looking forward to hosting our first annual cocoa party this Saturday so that I can put this bar area to use.
Thank you to Overstock for sponsoring today’s post.
