Break out the bar trolleyYou can pick trolleys up in second-hand shops, or just convert a coffee table into a bar for the evening. Have a variety of glasses at the ready for the different drinks you decide to serve – and remember to chill anything well in advance. An ice bucket is always a useful purchase, too, so people don’t constantly have to go to the fridge. Check out ways to fit a home bar into any scheme

Get the wine readyYou’ve stocked up on wine and fizz for the big meal tomorrow, so make sure you’ve got them all chilled (or warmed), ready for when guests arrive. Store your wines in a cool place and stick whites, prosecco, and champagne in the fridge (or an ice bucket if you’re short on fridge space) a couple of hours before your guests are due.

Invest in a trolleyYou can’t beat a drinks trolley on wheels for one of the most stylish ways to serve your brandy and bourbon. An industrial-style design in a vintage nickel finish simply oozes old-school Hollywood glamour. Cut-glass decanters and champagne saucers are a must here…Check out brilliant ideas for big mirrors
