There are few things that kick start the festive season more effectively than a good drink. From mulled wine to eggnog and champagne to Irish cream, now is the perfect time to crack open your bar, shake up some cocktails and invite your friends and family round for a good old-fashioned knees up.
To help you celebrate in style this Christmas, we’ve put together a fantastic selection of home furnishings and accessories. Designed to add a touch of luxury to your home throughout the year, these trays, trolleys and glasses will help you to create the perfect setting for your festive feast.
If you want your Christmas get together to be one to remember, you need to set the scene before your guests arrive. One of the best ways to prepare your living space, and get the party started, is to dress your drinks trolley with a selection of delicious spirits, wines and garnishes. If you don’t yet have a drinks trolley, invest in our beautiful Platonic Antique Gold Bar Trolley or our stunning Occtaine Octagonal Bar Trolley for your home.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect trolley for your interior, it’s time to stock it. The glasses you choose for your bar will depend on the drinks you plan to serve. If you’re not yet sure exactly which cocktails you’re going to mix up on the day, pick up a set of tumbler style glasses. These are very versatile and can be used to serve a wide range of spirits and cocktails.
Serve your drinks on a tray to minimise spills and maximise style. Our Square Marble Tray with brass inlay will look fantastic in your home, as will our Platonic Antique Gold Tray and our Atarah White and Purple Quartz Tray.
Adding a few well-chosen accessories to the space can help make your interior feel even more stylish and add a real festive feel to the space. Place our Diamond Cut Glass Jars on your drinks trolley or a Golden Art Pineapple on your table to add a focal point to the space. Or, if you’re going for a more abstract feel, opt for our eye-catching Glass Pineapple Sculpture.
Flowers and foliage are perfect for a seasonal finishing touch. Place red flowers or striking green leaves in our Blue Ceramic Floral Bottle Vase to give your home the perfect festive look.
If you don’t have space to entertain at home, or if you just fancy a change, there are some fantastic local bars for you to explore this festive season. One of our favourites is Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant. An independent establishment at the heart of York’s food and nightlife scene, it’s a great place for pre-Christmas drinks, festive get togethers and romantic meals for two.
During the festive season, Kennedy’s is going all out to get its patrons in the festive spirit. As well as freshly made mulled wine, the bar will be serving up a mouth watering salted caramel martini. Made by combining Chase espresso vodka with patron café XO, caramel syrup and a shot of espresso, the indulgent drink is finished off with a salted caramel pretzel.
Throughout December Kennedy’s is offering any two cocktails from its tried and tested menu for £10 between Sunday and Thursday from 4pm onwards. Plus, every Friday you can enjoy two cocktails from their weekend classic menu for just £15, making it easy to get the party started.
