My Maid of Honor and little sister, Stephanie threw a perfectly sweet & adorable bridal shower for me a month ago, and I would be remiss not to share some of the details. Here are some easy tips on how to pull together an easy bubbly bar (or coffee, hot chocolate, etc.!) for your next gathering.
Since we were kids, my little sister has had the artistic brain. She was going to drawing classes and acing art projects while I was scribbling away in my journals and attending writing competitions. Her career has well suited her as a buyer for Abercrombie, where she can leverage her visual skills daily. Despite having three kids, a full time job, a house and a hubby she still finds free time to work on various projects. I was feeling a little guilty that on top of all of these commitments, she had the extra “duty” of hosting a bridal shower for me. I wasn’t expecting one at all (honestly!) but I knew she’d do a wonderful job, which of course she did. One of the key features was an adorable, simple & welcoming DIY bubbly bar.
My only request for the shower was that I wanted it to be laid back and fun. She captured the vibe perfectly by using lots of items she already had on hand, and adding in simple touches to keep the bubbles flowing and cleanup quick. While we indulged in prosecco & juice, you could easily swap for a coffee, hot chocolate or even mocktails for a brunch party or baby shower.
