Home Entertainment: Cocktail Party Planning Guide, St. Charles, Missouri

Whether you’re throwing a holiday get-together or a summer soirée under the stars, cocktail parties provide exceptional entertainment for all your social circles, from neighbors to coworkers. However, planning a successful party can be stressful. Below, the home entertainment experts at Watson’s share their foolproof recipe for an epic cocktail party everyone will enjoy.

3 Components for the Perfect Cocktail Party

Delicious Drinks

home entertainmentThe name cocktail party says it all—refreshing libations are to be expected. But how do you decide on what cocktails to serve? When choosing drinks, think about the ambiance you’d like to set for the evening. Seasonal selections are always a hit, and you can never go wrong with beer and wine. Whether you’re offering a full bar, signature cocktails, or a selection of reds and whites, pouring and mixing drinks alongside meals in the kitchen is a recipe for disaster. Home bar furniture allows enough space to serve your friends, display your bartending skills, and play up the lounge-like atmosphere.

Satisfying Food

If you’re serving liquor, it goes without saying that food should be readily available. If you’re not serving a meal, prepare at least eight hors d'oeuvres per guest to ensure safety and satisfaction. The perfect cocktail party menu will encompass a broad range of appetizers for everyone to enjoy—even vegetarians!

Easy Conversation

Good conversation is one of the most important aspects of a cocktail party. However, it doesn’t come without a little effort on your part. Enable the constant flow of communication by arranging your home entertainment fixtures so guests can move freely. Keep the mingling area clear by placing your home bar furniture and food tables around the perimeter of the room.

No matter what kind of party you choose to throw, Watson’s has a wide selection of bars, barstools, and barbecues to build the ultimate home entertainment setup. To find a convenient location near you, visit Watson’s online or give them a call at (513) 326-1100.
