How to Host a Flawless Cocktail Party
Take a break from the simple beer-and-wine gatherings and throw a fun cocktail party. Follow these simple tips to ensure your get-together is a hit.
Old glassware is great. You can pick up mismatched pieces at thrift stores, garage sales, and antiques markets for very little money. Be creative! Wine needs a proper glass to appreciate the nose, but cocktails can be served in a plethora of options. Mixing up styles and colors can add to the decor at your party.
Music really sets a mood. If you are serving classic cocktails from the 1920s and 1930s, select a well-known artist from that era to play. If you have a record player around, even better.
If you are worried about spills around the bar, purchase a piece of dark cloth or velvet to place underneath the bar.
