Timeless Cocktail Hour Inspiration | The Special Event

Over the past year, we’ve seen updated champagne and whiskey bars breathe new life into the standard cocktail hour.  While attending The Special Event 2014 this past January, we were so excited to see these cocktail set ups taken to a new design level by the designers at McBride Events.  Timeless details such as stacked glassware, unique lighting and classic cocktails paired with a uniquely suspended cake chandelier, beautiful furniture, stunning drapery details and simplistically elegant floral arrangements blew our collective design minds!

Here are some of the details we can’t stop swooning over. 

PS…Notice how the same room has two bars uniquely split between the delicately feminine champagne bar and manly whisky bar. 

Cocktail Hour Inspiration

Loving the unique cocktail tables with no linens, the simply elegant stem centerpieces, lighting the entrance with lanterns and the unique framing of the cocktail musicians.


The Collection

Stunning Champagne Bar


Champagne Bar Decor

It’s in the details: the draping tie backs, the crystals strung from the cake, the perfect alignment of glassware.


The Collection

Whiskey Bar

Pre-poured displays, glassware stacking, simple greenery.

So many simple touches.


Cocktail Lounge

One room. Two completely different design styles. Brought together at the entrance to the main event.

We hope you are as inspired as much as we were on this amazing evening.  Remember, even in tradition there is always room for amazing details, unique ideas and modern flair.  Let us help you put that personal spin on your own tradition.  

Always Unique,

The R+B Team

Spruce Mountain Ranch, Romantic Real Wedding: Colorado Wedding Planners

This past summer, we had the pleasure of working with Leanna and Christopher to plan their romantic ranch wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado. We love the stylish bowties and floor length bridesmaids’ dresses. It was a crazy windy day, but the girls took it in stride and it made for some gorgeous veil-flying-in-the-breeze photos. Congratulations to this super nice couple! A big thanks to Jackie Cooper for taking these beautiful photos.
