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.
You spent weeks brainstorming the color scheme. Months pouring over Pinterest deciding what design details you’re going to incorporate into your decor. Endless hours sorting through seating plans, menu selections, floral varieties…the list goes on and on. As the day quickly approaches, in all the madness that is the wedding planning process, you may have forgotten one very important thing. In the end your wedding day is ultimately just all about the two of you. And we can think of few better ways to celebrate your love than with a bit of self-indulgence by way of a delicious signature drink in a gorgeous set of flutes. To encourage some personal pampering, here are some of our favorite flute designs paired, like a good wine, with style recommendations to help you select your set. And to end things off, a yummy signature drink recipe to get the weekend started right. Happy Friday!
