A small brown cabinet is used for wine glass storage in this eclectic home. Behind the cabinet, gray patterned wallpaper creates movement, and on top of the cabinet, striped candlesticks and a rhino figurine add trendy decoration.
Wine charms can be a great way to label party guests' glasses — if you could just find them! Sabrina Soto has a better way: Paint the base of wineglasses with chalkboard paint, then set out chalk so each partygoer can monogram their stemware.
This wine glass display is topped with Mexican-inspired accessories, creating a strong tie to the restaurant's Mexican roots. The rustic wood cabinets and shelves offer a casual, homey feel to restaurant goers.
Get crafty with place cards for your event. Emboss copper garden labels with the name of each guest, and then wrap them around the stem of inexpensive wine glasses so guests can take them home as a favor.
This dining room's bar area is in a New York state of mind. The floating cabinet holds wine lying horizontally and liquor bottles behind mesh-front cabinets. Wine glasses hang from a shelf overhead, where New York City prints also rest — but could hold cookbooks, a decanter or other accessories. Succulents and flowers bring life to the space.
Chalkboard paint adds a splash of color and will help guests keep track of their drinks. For this project, you'll need: wine glasses, chalkboard paint, bucket or small bowl for the paint, chalk sticks, rubbing alcohol and paper towels or a clean cloth.
In a corner of the dining room, a wet bar provides ample storage for dishes and serverware and also includes a built-in wine cooler and sink to make guests the perfect cocktail in one convenient place.
Even the tiniest wet bar will be a boon for entertaining if you choose the right spot for it. “It makes sense to fit the bar near the traffic pattern of the party,” says Gretchen Brown, who created this diminutive 3 ½-foot-wide by 2-foot-deep drinks station using custom cabinetry painted in Benjamin Moore’s Snowfall White.
