Audra Lowe: Earlier celebrity event planner Jes Gordon showed us how to decorate our homes for a holiday party so now it’s time to stock the bar. We made up with Jes that creed in barrel for all the essentials. Jes Gordon: My name is Jes Gordon; I’m the owner of Jes Gordon Proper Fun. Here to give you tips on the perfect holiday home bar. So, first I’m going to start off with what you need the tools that you essentially had to have. Everything you can find here with creed barrel this place is crazy. So, anyway here are the essential, this is the mat daddy, these are the meat and potatoes of what you need to have in the home bar. First of all before you even get started, I saw this little wonderful buck of home cocktails that are very easy to follow, easy to find, bright green, big cover, simple, straight to the fact and easy to follow. So you know you need this in order to do to be the perfect mycologist for the holiday. So, make sure that they are containing at the end of the bar. You have the rabbit, this is awesome I mean if any of you have ever had this I can open up a bottle one, two, three I can open up five bottles one, two, three which is often what you have to do when you’re entertaining at home. So, you know that’s the great thing to have, then you have your little carousel of goodies here which has everything in it. It’s got your martini stirrer, it’s got your strainer, and it’s got your ice tongs and has your beer opener for the dudes at the party. You got to have some seasonal beers that your holiday party. You had your perfectly measured shoot glass so when you pouring those cocktails your guest earn a sleep before the dinner comes out so make sure you use this. You want to make sure too that you have cocktail napkins that’s important to have, everybody is a massive. Some coasters, this is a very nice hint to tell your guests hey appear a lot from my creed and barrel furniture and I don’t want of you when it so here are some creed and barrel coaster to protect what you invested in. Make sure that you have dish towels, nothing wrong with celebrating the session, in this case Thanksgiving and Christmas in using dish towel just to make sure you know the bar can get messy at time. And then the perfect condiments, is such of blue cheese olives, cranberries, cherries, whatever your little heart desires. This one glass is our winey quite lovely. This one is obvious, this is the wine glass it says, we know people so this is pretty much which you going to use it for. These are really great mixers so what you want to do here is this is actually a peppermint candy folk so if you do serve hot chocolate and you mix it up with the peppermint spoon you have this great, great item of taste that you didn’t have to add. So when you providing a warm after dinner treat such as a spice hot chocolate, a spice drum, a spice coffee this is a great thing to have. You have several of these, you can level them with the coffee, with the hot chocolate, with the snider and you know guests also feel very free to go and serve themselves. Make sure you have some snacks, nothing to filling a crew and not mix with a little bit of chocolate yours have that chocolate on the holiday so just remember that you’re home bar is a place where friends and family will most likely convenient when they first get to your party. It’s kind of social hot and it’s where a people feel comfortable when they first get to a party they can create conversation, they can talk about maybe the specialty drink that you provided. And then you easily flow into the rest of the evening, it’s a good embarrassing on your holiday. Good luck and happy holidays.
