Setting the Bar High

Yesterday we gave you a few tips from the book on how to set-up a home bar for your holiday party. Today I wanted to show you a few of my favorite classic, functional items from Crate and Barrel. Each of these items (and most things at C&B) are a good investment because they are staples for the home bar you will use for seasons to come!

With the Swoon Carafe form meets function. The shape is beautiful while allowing wine to breathe and pour easily. ($24.95)

This party beverage server is a great item to have behind the bar to chill beer, wine and mixers. It's also attractive enough to have your selection on display. Loop a bar towel through the handle so no one drips on their party clothes. (party beverage server, $69.95, bar mop dishtowels $8.95)

No one wants to be struggling with a cheap wine opener in the middle of the party. The rabbit wine opener has a sophisticated design and opens a wine bottle with two simple motions to let you keep the party going! ($59.95)

I love that stemless barware has become trendy. People are less likely to knock things over and spill; they really are the best bet when having a bar in your home. ($2.50 each)

All of these items can be found on Crate and Barrel's website (photos from website).
