Never underestimate the power of a solid tray—especially if it's as inconspicuously understated as an acrylic one, which seamlessly blends in with its surround. In lieu of establishing a centralized bar, set out an assorted selection of trays around your entertaining area. You can pair each tray with a handful of the essentials or, categorize them by drink type. Think: a station devoted exclusively to bubbly, wine, and hard liquor. You may also set up trays where each holds the fixings for a specific cocktail, allowing guests to make their own.
