Before & After: Holiday Pop-up Bar

There’s nothing quite like some of the sweet, spicy, rich drinks that lure us through the holiday season and definitely put some of the ‘fest’ in festive.  If you don’t have a bar area in your home, but are entertaining this holiday, don’t feel underwhelmed and set up a quick watering hole of your own.

In my house, the kitchen is a little tight and rooms are closed off (no open concept here).  To help prevent bottlenecks in the kitchen, I move the bar into another room to help keep people moving around and mingling. All you need is a couple of Command hooks and some garland to define the perfect space to wet your whistle during all of that carolling (wait, you don’t carol?)

I showed this pop up bar that I’d created in my Holiday Style Challenge post for The Home Depot and got a lot of feedback about where in my house this gem was located.  Don’t be afraid to make some moves in your house for the holidays, and think of creative ways to get people moving and mingling.


Now, how about that drink, shall we?

Have a SPLENDID Wednesday!

    cute set up for the bar! You did such an awesome job putting it all together. I just checked out your Home Depot post, I love how you added the pine garland and the way you used those glass containers! Such an inspiration!

    What a lovely set-up! I need to work on making some holiday re-arrangements in my house. I would not have thought to use Command Hooks – but what a great idea! thanks:)
