Express Your Personality

The pieces you choose as your home bar accessories allows you to make a personalized style statement. Sleek and minimal, more ornamental, playful and whimsical – or a combination of styles allows your set up to mirror your personality. We hope you enjoy our picks for some of our favorite home bar accessories.

Elevate the Experience

You can hand a drink to anyone and they now have a drink in their hand. Serve them a cocktail placed on a linen napkin with a glass swizzle stick and now you’ve elevated the entire experience.

A few well chosen accessories can show off your personal style and turn an ordinary drink into an exceptional one.

Easy Holiday Themes

It’s easy to update your bar to celebrate any holiday or occasion. Themed napkins, cocktail picks, straws are just a few ways to add a holiday touch without breaking the bank.

Christmas Tree Swizzle Sticks

I personally like to collect Christmas themed swizzle sticks. They don’t take much storage space, and add a fun touch to winter parties. You can find swizzle sticks in any number of themes such as Halloween, Tiki Party themes, just about anything you can think of.

The Finishing Touch

Like a perfect piece of jewelry to adorn an outfit, a few perfect accessories can give your bar that finishing touch.

We compiled some of our favorite bar accessories to help you choose accessories to express your individuality.

Cocktail Napkins

COTTON CRAFT 100% Linen Cocktail Napkins

We love the elegance of the larger cocktail napkin that folds into the perfect 5 inch square. Serving a drink with a cocktail napkin automatically adds a bit of panache to your party, and helps protect your furniture.

These are available in limited colors, but I like their quality.

Linen cocktail napkins.

100% Pure Linen Hemstitch Cocktail Napkins

Classic 6 inch square cocktail napkins. I love the colors these come in. No need to fold, just put them down and they are ready to use.

Glass Straws

I really like glass straws more than the stainless steel ones. They are durable and easily cleaned and add a nice touch to drinks. Colored straws can help your guests keep track of their drinks at a party.

Long straws

Hiware Reusable Glass Drinking Straws

Clear or multicolored.

Glass reusable straws for your drinks. Perfect for your bar.

Short straws

Hummingbird Glass Straws Little Sipper

Perfect for a double old fashioned glass. I even use these in my coffee mug. The included cleaning tool is fantastic.

Glass straws sized perfectly for an old fashioned glass.

Cocktail Picks

If there’s one bar accessory that I feel is a necessity is a good cocktail pick. A great way to hold a garnish in your drink, and as a small stirring rod. They also make great hors d’oeuvres picks. I have dozens and dozens of these.

Stainless Steel Cocktail Picks – 4 inch

Also available in an extra long 8 inch size. Great for highball and collins glasses.

Bloody Mary Picks

Raw Rutes – Tree Brunch Gourmet Cocktail Pick

These are fantastic, I’m almost embarrassed at how often I use these – almost. These heavy duty stainless steel cocktail picks are the perfect thing to use for garnishing your bloody marys. These heavy gauge brunch picks are sturdy enough to hold just about anything you would like to use to garnish your bloody mary. These are the best bloody mary garnish holders I’ve seen. These really bring your brunch game up to the next level.
