Make Your Cocktail Party Bar Memorable With These Tips

September 30, 2016

Your guests expect to toast you with a few drinks, but how can you make your bar memorable? One way to continue your chosen decor theme through is to the drinks served at the bar.

 



Make a big feature of your cocktail drinks area by hiring a cool bar sign

Ask your venue to create pink watermelon cocktails for a pink themed event, serve drinks with striped straws in mason jars for a rustic theme or choose wines from your favourite region or country. 

Get your caterer to provide beer- and/or wine-matching notes for guests with your canapes, entree, main meal and dessert.

Add blue food colouring  and red jelly fish to kids' lemonade glasses if you're having a beach theme party.

Cover beer bottles in reusable, personalised custom beer labels with your initials or with a design of your own. 

Serve mini tacos, fish'n'chips, pizzas, pulled pork or beef sliders, or tapas plates to soak up the alcohol.

Keep drinks outdoors in a wheelbarrow, wooden trough, picnic basket, flower pots, or a spray-painted bathtub filled with ice for a rustic event.

Create a bar display with cute paper umbrellas, straws, swizzle sticks, celery sticks, and lemon and lime slices.

A gold bar cart trolley with liquor bottles, pretty glasses and lemons can look extremely effective for your cocktail party.

Why We Deleted Our Hire Availability App

October 06, 2020

Today My Event Decor deleted the hire date availability app, much to our disappointment. It has been one of the key differentiators for us in the event hire business, with very few hire companies showing their quantities available, as well as a calendar showing availability for the date/s required.
