The Party Accessories You Need This Christmas

From Christmas Day to New Year's Eve, the festive period makes for the perfect reason to invite your nearest and dearest over for a celebration.

Here at Utility, we stock a unique range of party accessories suited to all occasions whether you’re  showing off your bartender skills with the sophisticated classic martini set or enjoying endless hours of entertainment with our selection of pop culture quizzes.

Grab a glass...The bar is open

Set your party vibe by stringing up some festival lights and announcing the bar as officially open! Be sure to show off your mixologist skills with the help of our quirky home bar accessories.

Bartending shot glasses

If you’re a novice when it comes to shaking up a cocktail, our bartending glasses designed by Hannah Rogge each feature a different popular spirit, including gin, rum, vodka and whiskey. The glasses teach you how to make four different drinks using the respective spirit with the small simple recipes printed on their sides.

Recipes include classic cocktails, Gin Rickey, a Rum Sour, a Bloody Mary and a Whiskey Fix amongst a list of instructions on how to create unique and delicious cocktails.

Vodka zinger

If you really want to impress this year, infuse your favourite spirit: vodka, gin or tequila with the Vodka Zinger, an ingenious device that infuses your favourite 4-12oz spirits with the wonderful flavours from fruits, herbs, spices, and vegetables.  

It's perfect for parties, evenings in with friends, and impressing guests with your new-found mixology skills.

Shot glasses and paddle

And for your guests upon their arrival, how about a shot to really get the party started?  Serve a spirit of your choice with the LSA Shot set and paddle - there are six shot glasses which sit uniformly within the oak paddle and all you have to decide is who's having the first batch...1, 2, 3!

Perfect for setting the right mood for your party, make a playlist filled with everybody’s favourites and plug your phone or laptop into the the Smartphone Speaker, the audio sibling to the best selling Smartphone Projector.

Smartphone speaker

Boasting 30 hours playback, and impressive sound quality and volume whilst remaining lightweight and compact, this speaker is great for moving from room to room to sit the mood alive through music.

Of course no party is complete without some memorable entertainment...

Bring out the competitive side in your guests with the Sing it Back Music Quiz. Perfect for all music appreciators, the quiz features pop and rock hits from the 1950s to the present day. This quiz is an ideal way to get everybody involved in battling it out to guess the next line of a hit song.

Whether it’s a dinner party, New Year’s Eve bash or a few drinks before hitting the town, there are 20 different props to choose from, so get the camera ready and start snapping.

You could even make your photobooth selfies even more bizarre, with the infamous Finger Hand. Join the #fingerhandmovement on Instagram and snap you and your friends shaking hands with your extra hand...We don't really understand it ourselves but it’s a thing and it works.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
