Time to Toast: How to Host a Glamorous Cocktail Party
The holidays are here and it’s time to celebrate with a fabulous cocktail party. So, in a sea of New Year’s Eve party invitations, how can you make sure you’re dubbed the hostess with the mostess?
Here are a few easy tips to get the ball rolling – before the ball drops. Raise your glass and ring in the new year in style with PEAK Event Services.
Personalize your event with marquee letters or balloons.
Nothing says “cheers” like, well, the word “cheers.” Custom balloons or marquee lighting are a snazzy addition to any party and provide a cute photo opportunity for your guests. Opt for classic NYE sayings or come up with your own personal slogan or event hashtag; you can even put your name or initials out there so no one forgets who threw the best bash of the season.
Choose specialty glasses.
When it’s time to toast, you’ll want to sip from something festive. Find specialty glasses that are up for the occasion, like these Luster Champagne Flutes. Choose accordingly for the drinks you’re serving and make all of your martini, pilsner, and shot glasses reflect your theme.
Add some sparkle with sequined linens.
This new year is all about a fresh, shiny start with silver and gold. Make your event even more spectacular with sequined linens on your back bar and tables. Sequins will also help draw the eye to your next great idea: a custom snack bar with holiday hors d’oeuvres and candy treats.
Set up a custom bar and cocktail tables.
Give your home some swanky lounge vibes by setting up high cocktail tables and stools, like the Chroma tables and Ballroom Stools. Another easy addition that goes a long way is a pop-up bar. Snag a collapsible bar in black, white, or sable and deck out the bar back with your themed décor. Now that you’re playing bartender, create a unique cocktail to add to a list with all of the other beer, wine, and spirits you’ll be serving, and watch the line form quickly.
