how to accessorize your drink station

Around here we don’t need an excuse to find and try out new drink recipes. But with Valentine’s Day just a few days away, we’ve got a pretty great one. So we went on the hunt, and boy did we find a tasty mix! To share our latest cocktail find, which just happens to be perfect for the upcoming holiday of love and certainly for any wedding celebration, we’re also taking the opportunity to provide some insider tips on how to style your drink station. Using just a few easy tricks we’ll show you how to take any sipper set up from merely functional to simply fabulous.

Here’s the breakdown on everything you need to know to get the look, finished off with that cocktail recipe we promised.

Styling Tip #1: Go for the Upgrade

Appearance is everything. Swap out typical glassware options for stylish stemware that works with your wedding day design.

Styling Tip #2: Style your Stem

Don’t have the budget for upgraded glassware? Give a simple stem a decorative face lift by adding creative, theme appropriate charms to elevate their look.

Styling Tip #3: Signature Sippers

Instead of serving straight sparkling wine or a common cocktail, go with a drink that either has special meaning to you and your new hubby, or that acts as a representation of your wedding day design. Give it a name and you’ve got your own personal signature sipper.

Styling Tips #4 – 6: Bring on the Extras

Think beyond the drink. Fill your display with pretty details that won’t go unnoticed. Think a paper lantern overhang, custom personalized signage and floral printed paper straws, for the complete pretty picture.
