There’s no busier time for parties than Christmas, everyone is full of festive cheer and celebrations are a regular occurrence! But when the weather is a bit miserable and cold, and bars are packed with work parties, there’s no better place to enjoy a drink than from the comfort of your own home. Cue the ultimate festive drinks trolley!
Drinks trolleys have so many uses. Not only do they provide some quirky décor for any living or dining room, they’re also ideal for getting the party started with some cocktails, and of course not forgetting those cosy nights on the sofa just the two of you. As long as you stock your trolley with all the right tools and treats, you’ll wonder how you ever threw a party without one!
Your Prezola wedding gift list is the perfect opportunity to get started with creating your ultimate bar trolley and friends and family will love seeing the gifts they’ve bought you when you have them round for drinks or dinner party. So here are some top tips for what to include on your list.
Start with the trolley
The base for all your amazing wonders, the only place to start is with the trolley itself! Prezola have a great selection in different styles so the first thing to consider is what room you want to put it in. If you like the vintage look go for an art deco style like this one from Nordal, or if you prefer something sleek and modern, Beau Living has a cool industrial version.
Select your glassware
As well as being essential to serving your delectable drinks, the right glassware will also impact the look of your trolley. For a chic feel, go with a traditional decanter like this one from Nordal and some pleated glass tumblers from LSA. For something a bit more playful look no further than these rocket decanters from Jonathan Adler paired with some funky shot glasses from Root7. Another thing to consider is what you will use the most. If champagne is your drink of choice be sure to include a champagne bucket and some flutes or coupes. Wine glasses are a perfect way to add some details with colour or pattern and cocktail glasses come in lots of beautiful shapes.
The perfect tools
Again this will depend on what you will be using your trolley for, but a good place to start is with a corkscrew and bottle opener. If you plan on mixing up some cocktails a beautiful shaker and tool set will finish your trolley off perfectly, not to mention provide a bit of theatre to your evening. An ice bucket is also handy for cocktails as well as long and short drinks.
A good drinks recipe book is a must for some inspiration and no evening would be complete without some delicious nibbles. Whether you’re planning on celebrating your newlywed life with some bubbles or you want to throw a post-wedding party, nibbles are a must! Choose some stylish nibble bowls to complete the look.
So there you have it, all the tips and tricks to create the perfect drinks trolley. To start your dream wedding gift list with Prezola head over to their website. As a thank you for signing up you’ll get 20% off any remaining gifts on your list after your wedding day.
