sweet luted glassware, " she says. " We're
also seeing a lot of faceted glassware,
things that relect light and lots of colors,
adding fun and personality to events. "
As for latware, Murray says sparkling
gold remains a " top option " for her
clients, many of whom are updating
their latware to match a metallic
palette. And as beverages inluence
the glassware, so is the case with the
menu, which her clients are continuing
to reine, with latware serving as " a
grounding, design-based element. "
THE BAR TAKES CENTER STAGE
No surprise, event planners and
their clients are taking Instagram,
TikTok, Reels and other social media
into account, focusing on devising
document-worthy experiences,
with bar stations frequently serving
as star players in this respect.
" [These] are foremost in everyone's
mind, and any social occasion that allows
someone to capture a unique or playful
moment they can later share becomes
part of the enjoyment and thrill of the
event, " says Dubin, referring to the above
platforms. " From simple get-togethers to
formal events, the cocktail bar is always
where the action is, so people are loving
getting creative with immersive bartending
experiences and signature cocktails. "
Dubin-whose full-service event
planning and design company (with New
York locations in Westchester and NYC
as well as Miami, Fla.) handles bespoke
events including weddings, mitzvas and
birthday parties-says the martini bar
is the hottest " of the moment " station.
Guests not only get to try out different
martinis, they also get to watch them
being made, which adds to the fun.
Her preference is to locate little cocktail
stations around the event while also having
one large bar where specialty drinks are
available. She will often incorporate " fun "
signage here as well as using lighting and
" fabulous light ixtures " to draw additional
attention to this station.
" We recently had a huge LED structure
built above the bar that was the focal
point of the decor of the event, " Dubin
recalls. " What we are loving is seeing
entertainment as part of the bar raised in
the middle, like a musician, vocalist, dancer
or rotating performers. The concept is to
never let the guest experience get boring,
but to continue to delight all with the
unexpected-anything interesting, one of a
kind, surprising, Instagram-worthy. "
Because bars act as a natural gathering
spot for guests, Archbold says Evantine
Design tries to have its tented events
feature a central, statement bar rather
than having multiple bars located around
the perimeter of a wedding reception.
This latter strategy, she says, often results
in people lining up and overcrowding
one bar while some of the others go
unnoticed and underused.
" One larger bar allows the bartenders
and barbacks to serve guests and
replenish glassware, product and so on
much more eficiently, " she explains.
" This also allows for a more signiicant
design of the bar. Several looks we love
are a circular bar with a statement loral
display, a square bar with dazzling
back bar shelving, and a long, linear bar
featuring a live loral front facade. "
TOP: Held in a New York loft, this birthday
party featured a custom-built bar
designed to coordinate with the modern
lounge furniture and the fi re and ice
theme. Bartenders served drinks throughout
the evening to guests, accompanied
by the sounds of the jazz bands situated
on the raised stage in the middle of the
bar. Planning: Victoria Dubin Events. Bar
