Genius Ways to Serve Cocktails at Your Bridal Shower
The best bridal showers offer something to drink, whether it's celebratory Champagne or a thematic signature cocktail. Whatever you're offering, serve beverages in a way that ties into the rest of your event's design. Get inspired by these bridal shower bar and station ideas, which can seriously elevate any party.
You've got options when it comes to serving sips at your bridal shower. Maybe you're throwing a brunch celebration. In that case, try a mimosa bar. This one featured a fun Kismet Detailing & Design sign, which read, "welcome my boozy babes." Other popular drinks include wine, like rosé, or delicious margaritas—the more flavor options, the better. Really, though, offer whatever the bride loves, whether that's sparkling punch or fruity sangria. We've spotlighted serving methods for all of the above.
Once you decide on drinks, it's time to get creative with how you display them. You might make them in advance for a grab-and-go station or provide an array of ingredients and let guests make their own. Put everything on or in a classic bar, a bar cart, or another piece of furniture. One idea ahead incorporates a bathtub, and yes, it actually looks totally classy! Spruce things up even more with flowers, pretty glassware, or cute signage like the example shown here. We highly recommend coordinating the décor with your event's overall theme.
