3 Steps to Assemble a Cute Mimosa Bar

There’s no doubt that drinks are one of the most important yet stressful parts of any event – if you plan everything in a wrong way, you are likely to spend all the time in the kitchen playing the bartender. Fortunately, you can go for the easier options and can make even a greater splash than multiple servings of a 5-step cocktail full of expensive ingredients with a DIY mimosa bar. Since it’s a DIY bar, your guests will be able to help themselves – all you need is to provide them with the needed ingredients and easy instructions/recommendations. Since it’s a mimosa bar, make no mistake – it will take only 3 ingredients (champagne, juice, and fruit) to make the party started. Just check out this 3-step tutorial, and see how easy it is to assemble a cute mimosa bar!

Essentials

Champagne

It goes without saying that champagne is the main ingredient of mimosa, so begin your preparation process with choosing the bubbly. In our opinion, since it’s not a sparkling wine-tasting event, you can opt for some regular champagne to complement your menu. Furthermore, to allow your guests to choose from a few options, we strongly recommend you consider adding some alternatives, like muscato or rosé, which also make a perfect “foundation” for the mimosa cocktail. At the same time, quantities should be taken into consideration – please note that one standard bottle of champagne makes no more than 8 mimosas. With that being said, if you are going to serve 2-3 cocktails per guest, you’ll need at least 6 bottles for 20 invitees.

Garnishes & Fruit

Though bubbly is the main ingredient of the mimosa cocktail, the latter won’t be complete without juices or purees. While orange juice is a traditional option, providing a few alternatives will never hurt. If you are at a loss and have no idea, which garnishes to offer, see what’s in your bubbly list, and remember that the opposites attract. Thus, you can fascinate your guests with the following combos: sweet muscatel + sour grapefruit, dry champagne + sweet grenadine, crisp prosecco + peach puree (no matter how fascinating these combos are going to be, your guests are more likely to opt for traditional pairings, so stock up on orange juice). Either way, whichever pairings you offer, it’s highly recommended to coordinate the garnishes with fruit.

Dinnerware

It doesn’t matter how delicious your mimosas are, they will taste dull if served in unattractive dinnerware. To this end, after deciding on your party theme and menu, it’s highly recommended to drop by our online store to shop for suitable champagne trumpets, champagne flutes and tulips, or champagne coupes and cocktail glasses. At the same time, don’t forget about your juices, which will look even more appetizing in our vintage milk bottles, while our rose gold striped paper straws (to match with golden undertone of the bubbly) along with our pink paper napkins will take your guests’ mimosa-tasting experience to the next level!

As for the dishes to serve your fruit and toppings, the best way here is to just keep things simple and elegant, which is a breeze with our collection of dessert containers servings. Whether there are desserts in your menu or not, a couple of mismatched cake stands will transform your mimosa bar into a display of style and dimension.

Décor

In terms of mimosa bar décor, simplicity and springtime are the key elements. Forget about detailed centerpieces or complicated backdrops – it’s a perfect time for champagne, garnishes, and toppings to hit the spotlight. Thus, to make them stand out from the rest of your décor, go for the minimal number of accessories and simple color palettes (white with some pops of pink will be enough). With that being said, choose a place with an unused white wall (a garden will also be great!) and start decorating around it. If there’s no white vintage dresser or a glass minimalist table (like in the picture), you can fix things up by dressing up ANY rectangular table with our white spandex tablecloth, which will instantly provide a perfect base for your future mimosa bar. In case you don’t want to leave your minimalist backdrop as it is, you can decorate it with clear, white, and pink balloons accentuated with flowers and greenery sprays. Whether you accessorize your backdrop or not, no mimosa bar would be complete without a sweet note spelled out with the help of our pennants, gold foil balloons, or marquee letter signs!

Obviously, setting up a fascinating mimosa bar is easier than it seems. Since the tints of juices, toppings, and of course, champagne do the trick. Thus, you have a perfect chance to save on expensive decorations and go all the way with minimalism, both in terms of accessories and colors, without compromising on the end result – in our opinion, that’s what makes a mimosa bar a safe bet for any occasion. What do you think about bubbly bars? What’s your vision in terms of accessories and event palette? Would you make the tints of the cocktail ingredients stand out, or would you better make them a part of a more complicated color palette?
