Elevate Your Holiday Game with a Wrapping Station and Bar

Rocking around the Christmas tree! During the holidays, there's always so many presents to wrap and holiday gifts to prepare, which is why I wanted to elevate my seasonal game with a wrapping station and mocktail bar station. It makes it so much easier to have all your wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, tape and additional adornments in one place, especially if you are spending the afternoon elegantly preparing each gift.

Gift wrapping essentials

Wrapping presents is so personal, and really up to the gift-giver to decide the theme and color scheme of each present. Each year I usually pick two to three colors of wrapping paper which then inspires the ribbon and embellishments I find! Home Goods is really great for all your wrapping essentials and at great prices, or your local craft store like Michaels or Target.

This year, I am sticking with red, green and gold hues and found beautiful velvet and satin ribbon, but in years past I have stuck with gold and silver or even blue and gold! Take your time with finding the right fit! Other items you'll need for your wrapping station include tape, scissors, and boxes. When displaying on your bar area, I loved using the ribbon to weave around the glassware and also elements like ornaments and miniature bottle brush trees also go a long way.

Mocktail (or cocktail essentials)

Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I've loved finding fun mocktail options to enjoy - which was perfect for the holiday setup.

Plate your mocktail ingredients on a beautiful dish for a festive touch - for mine, I am made non-alcoholic mojitos with cranberries, pomegranate seeds, lime juice, mint, seltzer and a cranberry simple syrup garnished with candy canes. However, the sky is the limit and you can really have fun with holiday ingredients like chocolate or rosemary and cranberry.

Plus, I loved these gorgeous Fitz and Floyd Trestle highball glasses that feature a deep red color and almost glow when the lights it each glass.

Most importantly, don't forget to play some Christmas music and enjoy getting ahead on your wrapping for the season.
