Make Your Cocktail Party Bar Memorable With These Tips
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 wedding 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 your beer bottles in reusable, personalised custom beer labels with your initials or with a design of your own. Great fun for a guy who loves to brew his own beer!
Give your groomsmen their own personalised whisky bottles.
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 wedding.
Give your VIP guests their own gold monogrammed tumblers as special thank you wedding gift keepsake favours.
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.
