Do you love inviting friends and family over for an evening of socialising and entertaining? Having the proper kitchenware makes all the difference in the world when you want to serve up a delicious cocktail or hand out refreshments during game night. If you are just starting out in creating a cocktail bar there are a few pieces you need to have to pull off a successful night of entertaining!
Of course, you can’t even think of serving cocktails if you don’t have the proper glasses. Impress your guests by serving signature drinks in vintage or contemporary kitchenware – hi ball glasses are perfect for mixed drinks, while wine glasses are essential when you are serving red or white wine with hor d’oeurves or dinner. If you want to make some of the classic cocktails, such as a Manhattan or Martini, you’re going to need different shapes and sizes of glassware. You can’t possibly serve a martini in a hi ball glass!
Kitchenware Serving Platters
Depending on the time and size of the party, setting out small bites to eat around the entertaining space is made possible with elegant kitchenware. Sandwich trays, square platters and oval bowls are all ideal vessels in which to serve finger foods and snacks. When serving drinks at a party, always be sure to provide enough to eat for guests to avoid any over-indulging of the beverages. If you are building up a collection of kitchenware, look for design styles and patterns that are universal so you get plenty of use out of them throughout the year.
Bottle openers, corkscrews and cocktail shakers are essential in making a variety of drinks and serving guests. Once you have an ample number of glasses and accessories, you are ready to open up your personal bar – stocked with beautiful kitchenware!
