Fall is definitely one of the most popular seasons for entertaining with the holidays, bridal showers, etc. If I am hosting, one thing I love to do is create a bar area— for either drinks, food or desserts. Guests can serve themselves and you can set it up ahead of time.
Things to do a few days before:
- purchase flowers and create an arrangement
- assemble diy balloon garland
- set up glassware/trays/dishes you will be using
For my mimosa bar, I selected 3 juices: grapefruit, apple and orange. I served each juice in a clear carafe which were displayed on an artisan wood tray. Tent cards with each flavor were placed in front of each carafe. I sliced apples, oranges and grapefruit to garnish. Veuve was chilling on ice in my gorgeous ice bucket. Pro tip: make sure you have extra fruit slices, juice and champagne so you can replenish if anything is running low.
If you have been following me for awhile, you know I’m a huge fan of making my own floral arrangements. I purchased sunflowers, roses and eucalyptus from Trader Joe’s for under $15! I love how it turned out. It is perfect for fall!
I decided to keep the backdrop simple, while still making a statement by creating a 6ft balloon garland. These classic fall colors are lovely for this time of year.
