Set + Sip: Mimosa Bar

Friday, July 12, 2013
Celebrations call for specialty drinks, and we can think of none better than fresh mimosas. It's time to break out the champagne for weekends with friends or brunch with the bridesmaids - and we have just the stemware for it. But first, here are a few tips to set the bar. 

A beautifully set outdoor bar is perfect for easy Summer entertaining, and Pure Stemware is a clear choice for beautiful stemware.
PREP:  Drinks: Pick your favorite champagne along with at least two fruit juices - orange and grapefruit are two crowd pleasers. (We like the choices at Whole Foods.) Fruits: Summer is the best time for fresh fruits. First, get down to your local farmers market for strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and pineapples. Wash and slice the fruit into smaller pieces and place in decorative compotes or bowls with a spoon so guests can choose their own fixings. 
SET: Indoors: Create counter space so there is enough room for chilled champagne and juices, plus your favorite stemware. We like using our Vintage Carnival Glassware for a festive feel for easing summer entertaining, and you can never go wrong with our Pure Stemware. Outdoors: Set a table with a great linen to make your stemware and bar really pop. (Our in-house linens have a variety of textures and patterns sure to be perfect for your party.) Then, use a combination of our champagne buckets for a beautiful presentation.

OPTIONS: For kid-friendly or alcohol free parties, you can have the same set-up with a variety of lemonades. You'll need more prep for this besides the fruit. Think basil leaves, fresh ginger, and even rosebuds, as well as a variety of juices for mixing.
ENJOY: Have enough goods on hand so you can enjoy the mimosas with your guest.
