10 Ways to “Set the Bar” – Wedding Bar & Teen Drink Bars

Wedding BarHere are 10 ways to take your bar from ordinary to extra-ordinary!

At most weddings, mitzvahs and events, the bar is a fun place to be. Good drinks and company are only part of the allure. There’s also the set-up and presentation.

The same looks and designs can be used for alcohol-free kids and teen bars.

1. “Setting the Bar” – Lit From Within
