Planning a bridal shower that is fun, engaging, and memorable can be a challenge especially when there is a never-ending flow of tips and advice online. But one thing for sure is that having a mimosa bar at your bridal shower is a must to instantly elevate your overall event.
The following items listed below are the essential items you'll need to host a successful Mimosa Bar.
2. Plastic Champagne Flutes
are a great alternative to glass because they make clean-up a breeze and are safer than glass.
3. An Ice Beverage Container
is also a must for holding all your bubbly whether you choose to do sparkling white grape juice, prosecco, or champagne.
4. Small Serving Bowls
will also be essential to hold all your fruit toppings so you can have a gorgeous display.
5. You will need to purchase 3 to 4 lemonades or juices for your mimosa bar. Make sure you purchase orange juice due to it being the classic juice of choice for mimosas.
6. Depending upon the Bride's taste, you'll need to select either a few bottles of Sparkling Grape Juice or Champagne.
Decorating Your Mimosa Bar
Now that we've covered the essential items you'll need for your setup, it's time to get to the fun part!
1. Choose a Great Location
Choosing a location that is well lit and near the other food and drink items is a must! However, also keep in mind where you'd like people to gather because mimosa bars naturally become a gathering place for conversations. Last thing you want is for people to be forced to move too far away from the bar because they become a bottleneck in an area in your home or the event that prevents traffic from flowing.
2. Up the Elegance Factor with Pre-Printed Signs & Tags
When it comes to professional party styling, it's common to see custom pre-printed directional signs, banners and tags. These small details can make any event instantly look more expensive.
To achieve the same look with a mimosa bar, you're going to need a Mimosa Bar Instructional Sign, drink tags, topping tent cards and a beautiful banner.
