One Stylish Party shares its top tips for pulling off this event.
Consider the theme when selecting your color palette. I recommend going for bold, rich colors for a beer tasting party that will help you create a masculine vibe to complement the theme.
Style with comfort in mind. Create a cozy and inviting setting for your party by incorporating ambient string lights, fuzzy blankets and plush pillows.
Stay simple with your party menu. Host the party at an off time, so you are not tied to serving a full dinner. Prepare an appetizer table with an assortment of cheese, crackers, and nuts that pair well with the brews being served.
Don’t skip the florals. Even though it is a masculine party theme, florals are still an important component to bringing the decor to life. I recommend using a greenery garland for your tablescape with seasonal blooms tucked inside. You can also get creative by painting beer bottles to use as bud vases as well.
Support local. Consider sourcing beer for the tasting from a local brewery. Craft beers are so on trend at the moment, and it is fun to have the opportunity to introduce your guests to something new that is readily available in their area.
