Here's a Toast!

Having a bar setup in your house can be as simple as a temporary setup for entertaining on a side table, buffet, or desk, or having a full time setup as storage and display. We have a bar cart in our formal dining room that our sterling flatware chest is on the bottom, and the top is a large silver tray with some of our liquor bottles, a nice ice bucket, etc. Below are some of my amazing bar setups.

Some non-liquor bar essentials for entertaining:

Some of my favorite liqueurs:
- Soho Lychee liqueur, is from an oritental sweet fruit with an amazing taste great with champagne or sparkling water

- St Germain this elderflower liqueur comes in a beautiful crystal cut bottle and looks great for bar deco, and is great with champagne
