A guide to creating the perfect drinks reception 

Step One: 

Pick your bar! Here at Velvet we suggest that a 2m length bar is perfect for serving up to 70 guests for your event. For larger guest numbers we can create loger straight bar sections or you can look into circular or square bar options if your venue space allows. 

Step Two: 

Poseur tables! Your guests will be in need of somewhere to perch and rest their drinks whilst they mingle around the bar area. A popular poseur table amongst the VL team is our gold and black round poseur tables, but with a collection of 10 styles to choose from, we can caterer for your specific event look!

We also have a range of bar stools to accompany our poseur tables if you feel your guests would like a place to perch around the tables.

Step Three: 

Lounge seating! After a long day some guests may need to rest their legs and have a moment to relax. To get things started we suggest seating for at least 15% of your guests for a drinks reception.

Creating small pockets of seating is a great way to stagger the guest flow of a space and make sure all areas are used.
