welcome cocktail ideas

We love cocktails that make a statement—an immediate statement. If you ask us, a beverage display is the perfect way to properly welcome all of the spirit enthusiasts on your guest list. From birthday parties and bridal showers to family reunions and wedding celebrations, here are six versatile cocktail displays to help inspire your next soirée. Cheers!

A Classic Champagne Tower

Both eye-catching and elegant, we absolutely love a classic champagne tower—the quintessential belle of the ball! What could be more welcoming than these statuesque tiers of bubbly?

Greet With an Entire (mini!) Bottle

A miniature bottle of bubbly is exciting enough, but then add a straw to it? You’ll find yourself surrounded by the happiest of party guests. Perfect for an intimate brunch or evening dinner party, we recommend positioning these beauties on a vintage bar cart—strategically positioned near your entrance, of course.

A Personalized Tray of Hand-Lettered Cocktails

A welcoming tray of cocktails is even more celebratory with a touch of personalization. Ideal for smaller, more intimate events, we love the idea of greeting your guests by name. Also, bonus points if your name tags compliment the overall color palette!

Wow With a Repurposed Cocktail Display

With a clear vision (and a little elbow grease!) you can turn even the most unexpected items into a well-styled display. Okay, so maybe you don’t have a stylish, worn ladder just sitting around. Visit your local vintage shops to steal a deal or spark inspiration.

A Pitcher Perfect Cocktail Display

The bottom line? Cocktails should be two things: delicious and accessible. So we love the idea of whipping up seasonal cocktail recipes by the pitcher-full (and so will your guests!)
