If you’re like me, then you’re making Christmas plans right alongside with your New Year’s Eve plans. Earlier this month we shared with you some tips on how to create a hot cocoa bar for your Christmas party. Today, we’re sharing our favorite tips for creating your own bubbly bar. If you’re hosting a party at home, it’s always better to have a drink station where guests can help themselves. That way, you can spend more time socializing and less time serving. That’s what makes a bubbly bar so great and we’re going to give you a few pointers on how to create a simple set up.
Starting with the decor, we created a festive backdrop by stringing dots and hanging them against the wall for a pop of color. We also created a printable New Year’s banner (scroll to the bottom to download for free), and hung that in the middle for a festive touch. We added a few touches of gold to the table with the glittered leaves, trees, and ornaments because New Year’s Eve isn’t the same without a bit of sparkle! We also added some tassels along the skirt of the tablecloth for some extra frills.
Now for the bubbly! We used carafes from Ikea and tied our printable labels on them so guests can easily identify each flavor enhancer. The sparkling wine sits inside an ice bucket to keep it cold throughout the night. I recommend refrigerating your extra bottles so that they are ready to drink once the bottle is finished. We also laid out the champagne flutes to give guests easy access, but added printable flags to the bottom for a stylish touch. (It also can double as a wine charm to mark whose glass is whose).
We finished off the drink station with some delectable sweets. Not only is it nice to have some tasty snacks with a glass of champagne, but don’t they look fabulous displayed like that?
