Beverage Station #1: 4 Easy Steps to Wine!
Kiss a frog for the New Year; be surprised by trying something new, “Beverage Stations”. Let’s make it effortless for your guests to get a beverage.
1. Non-alcoholic beverages can be self-served.
2. Alcoholic beverages should be served. It’s best to have someone monitor the consumption, so all can enjoy themselves. The station should be in an area which is easily accessible, and guests can easily move in and out.
3. Beverage tastes much better in a “real” glass. Regardless of the number of guests, serve beverages in real glassware. Beverage stations should be easily accessible with space for ice which can be outdoors.
4 Easy Steps for a Wine Station.
1. Select a glam container to hold your ice and white wine/champagne. I like using my punch bowls. Flea markets and second hand shops have great punch bowl finds in milk glass, or heavy pressed glass.
2. Sparkle up the station with real wine glasses. If you are new to glassware, the stem less glasses are easy to hold, fit in the dishwasher, minimize “tipsy”, and easy to replace.
3. Provide glassware with wine charms. If you don’t have wine charms, use key tags or gift tags. Let your guest place their mark on the tag.
4. Bar towel to wipe up spills. Dish towels or large cloth napkins are good soakers. Don’t forget to have cocktail napkins.
