Hosting cocktail parties can be simple with just a few cocktail tables set up, some delicious snacks, and a great bartender. You can invite your friends, family members, co-workers, etc. and have them mingle with each other. Play some relaxing music in the background and you’re set. First things first, setting up your home. Tall cocktail tables are perfect because they are at standing height so guests have the option of standing, chatting, and then moving on, or sitting on bar stools to rest their feet. Your guests can lay their drink down and mingle.
We have an assortment of tables and table linen that can transform any home into a great party place. You can mix and match linens to match your color theme on different shaped tables to make each table unique, and place centerpieces on each table. You can use a table runner or sash to cinch the table linen to the table leg or you can let your table linens flow freely.
Adding an overlay or runner to your cocktail tables creates interest and texture for a layering effect.
