New Years Eve Bar

I still have cocktails on the brain!  This time it’s a New Years Eve serve-yourself bar that I actually set up at the same time as my Christmas bar, but I wanted to show you how to change out a few elements to create a totally different look.
  • Once again I began by covering a card table with a TableVogue fitted cover and used a large canvas board as a simple backdrop.
  • To give it a glam look to coordinate with our Holiday Dining Table and Dessert Table, I used black accessories and silver serving pieces.  This is the time to pull out any of those precious silver trays or crystal decanters and put them to use.  Don’t forget you can mix silver, silver plated, stainless, and pewter finishes together as I’ve done above, because they all have a similar look.
  • For this display I used a single framed sign to display the juice selection and spicy nuts, instead of individual tags.
  • I also topped one of the decanters with a holiday stopper, and added a ‘crystal’ droplet to the side of the oversize glass holding the pecans.  These are the unexpected details that help make your party special and memorable.
To inspire the rest of your “Glam” party, check out the entire New Years Eve entertaining series:
