Set Up a DIY Champagne Bar
Pizzazzerie suggsted this interesting option for a signature drink. It's pretty, it's pink and it's a combination of champagne and fruit juice. Set up your own DIY champagne bar for an elegant option to your usual open bar. Give your guests a simple but elegant option of sweet cocktails that are a combination of juices like pomegranite, cranberry or other juices mixed with some champagne. By letting guests make their own cocktails they can opt for simple champagne or add some fruit juices for a more creative drink option. Give your guests some fresh fruit or berries to add to the rim of their drink, and add some pretty striped straws, (the ones Pizzazzerie showed were from Shop Sweet Lulu.) You could also make your own drink stirrers or find come on Etsy that coordinate with your wedding colors. To finish off the DIY champagne bar add possible recipes and frame them on matte board. So a few cases of champagne, some juices, elegant glasses with pretty stirrers all add up to an elegant DIY champagne bar that will please both the taste buds of your guests and be pleasing to the eye. It's the small touches of the recipes and the straws and stirrers that take this DIY bar from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
