Merry, Bright & Blissful Holiday Home | Living Room, Holiday Bar + Bar Accessory Gift Guide!

Welcome back and happy Friday to you! Whew! What a week! This holiday blog life is catching up to me!

If you were here earlier this week, I introduced the Merry, Bright & Blissful Holiday Home series. Monday, I shared our Front door, Tuesday was a peak inside several rooms for the 12 Days of Christmas Tour and yesterday, I shared our Living Room Tree for the My Home Style Blog Hop Christmas Tree Edition!! I wanted to pack these 2 weeks full for you guys, so lets keep this holiday cheer train choo-chooing!

I think its here to stay. Don’t forget to keep reading until the end because I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite bar accessory essentials & included the sources for a gift guide! Who still has a ridiculous amount of Christmas shopping and wrapping to do? Please tell me I’m not alone!!

holiday bar tray - barware - bar accessories - bar cart styling - christmas spirits - This is our blissThe bar is set-up in the living room sort of as a makeshift solution until I, A – find a bar cart I am in love with that doesn’t cost $1,000 and B, until my little guys are not so grabby. This thrited furniture piece was the perfect solution because it is tall, fits my black lacquer tray to a T and has doors with shelves and drawers inside for extra drinkware and bar accessory storage!

I rested this red berry wreath from Pier One on top of my thrifted gold trophy ice bucket – love this gem!! Perfect for ice, wine, champs or even fresh flowers. I have a feeling you’ll be seeing him pretty often.

Can we talk about how pretty cranberries are for a second?!

Green limes and red cranberries add a festive touch and are the perfect garnish for all of those Christmas cocktail concoctions.

Now for the goods. As I mentioned, several of these pieces were thrifted finds, but I put together a list of a few of my favorite bar accessories so you can head directly to the source to pick up a few gifts for the cocktail lover on your list. Some of these items would make AWESOME stocking stuffers, too! [affiliate links are used in this post.]
