The holidays are the perfect time to test out some new drinks, and host a cocktail party! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite cocktail items from Crate & Barrel to help you be the host with the most!

For a cocktail party, you want simple, small finger foods that guests can eat while standing and talking, like cheeses, crackers, bruschetta and charcuterie. I’m a big fan of slate these days, and I love the slate cheese boards from Crate & Barrel. Don’t forget cheese knives, bowls and other serveware needed for snacks!

Drinks are the most important part of any cocktail party, so make sure to stock up on spirits, soda water, and juice that can be mixed for drinks. You could even create a signature holiday cocktail, Youtube has lots of easy tutorials to get you started.

I’m a big fan of art deco and think gold inspired coasters, spoons and glasses are the perfect way to give your party a classy holiday vibe, and if you get the Epicurean x Frank Lloyd Wright Serving Board, it’s a match made in heaven! Don’t forget stainless steel straws, ice buckets, ice cube trays, decanters, and wine stoppers!

Also make sure to have some holiday music on hand, Spotify has loads of Holiday inspired playlists. Don’t forget to have napkins, plates, and utensils handy.
