Dry Bar Decor

One of my favorite features in our dining area is our dry bar! The nice thing about dry bars is that you can put them in your kitchen, dining area, hearth, or even in the living room. It’s a very used space our house. We use it when we host any sort of gathering – we pour drinks there on poker night, we use the counter space as a buffet for holiday dinners. So, when we moved in to our new house, I knew the decor of the dry bar had to be both stylish AND functional. My husband has quite the whiskey bottle collection, so I knew I wanted to feature his most interesting-looking bottles. I put his collection on the middle shelf and decided to work around it.

The bar counter top also needed some interesting pieces. I added a raised wine and cheese tray (tray found at Target), a lamp to add light to the area, some layered cutting boards for cheese and appetizer spreads, and some different-sized glass jars full of bar snacks (pretzels, almonds and my kids’ favorite: M&M’s).

And there you have it! After adding some appetizer plates and a wall basket to add dimension, our dry bar is complete!
