It’s not a secret that I’m crazy about details. Not only do little moments make your guests feel super special – they also give extra personality to a bridal shower, garden wedding or even a day-after brunch. There’s nothing more useful than refreshments, especially when they’re stylish and fun. There are a couple of elements to make a fabulous drink station. And, I’m breaking them down with Pottery Barn + the imagery of Jenna Davis Photography so you can do it on your own with just a few items.
1. Drink Dispenser:
Clear jug options are perfect because you can see the color of the cocktail. The dispenser makes the drinks really stand out and sets the mood. Reminiscent of a vintage bell jar, this blown-glass piece from Pottery Barn is all kinds of Old World beautiful. I love it!
2. Colorful Beverage:
You can have a signature cocktail in no time. See one of my favorite summer cocktail recipes here. Whether serving champagne, a liquour-based drink, cocktails, mocktails, or water, think in vibe & color palette.
When you’ve chosen your drink, decide in which sort of glass it will be served. Pick a tumbler, flute, or wine glass like this one I love--or any other unique drinkware--just make sure you match it to your aesthetic.
Want to take your beverage station from pretty to pretty fabulous? Then add flowers! Because I live for the little things, I’m a sucker for florals. In fact, it’s quite possibly my favorite detail. It’s a simple as popping a few stems in bud vases or making your own centerpiece. Or both! I chose these adorable little vessels because the organic shape is sooo appealing (what do you think?!) Plus, they're recycled. You can never have too many flowers!
Ribbons, banners, & candles are other elements that add charm. A table without candles is like a dark night without a moon. These mercury glass votives add magic; they are a must. Totally charimatic little babies. Plus, the driftwood garland adds a bit of texture and interest.
I cherish calligraphy in the wedding world. Amy Osaba welcomed us to dinner at the most amazing little flower workshop with this menu card that quickly put us in the mood for the night. It doesn’t get much prettier than this one from Ink & Honey! It can be created to match your wedding style.
I believe in pink. Do you? I'd love to see your stellar set up. Show it to me on our Facebook page!
