How to set up a mimosa bar

Mimosa bars are perfect for any holiday, brunch, or celebration. Their quick to set up, you can make it your own, and as a host it allows your guest to mix and mingle.

This year I hosted a Ugly Sweater Brunchmas and I knew the first thing I was going to serve were mimosas.

To set up your mimosa bar you will need:

  1. Sparkling Wine – I always go for something on the cheaper side since it will be mixed with juice. For 7 people I picked up 6 bottles. I definitely recommend getting 6 – 8 bottles. My sparkling wine of choice was Burlwood Sparkling Wine from Aldi.
  2. Juice – My juice of choice was Raspberry Lemonade, Blackberry Lemonade, and Orange Juice with Mango.
  3. Berries (as a garnish) – My choice of fruit were blackberries and blueberries
  4. Carafes
  5. Ice Bucket
  6. Glasses
I used Canva to make the personalized sign and tags. I bought the balloons from etsy.

As well as these necessities I always think it is fun to personalize your party with a few details:

  • You can add a personalize sign.
  • Add tags to your juice. This allows your guests to know what they are drinking and prevent constant questioning, “What is this?”

If you are a fan mimosas, try this for your next gathering. Have fun and pour up the bubbles. Check out some of my favorite fall mimosas for inspiration.

Thanksgiving and the holiday season is right around the corner.
These drinks are sure to be the star of your party.

All you need is your favorite sparkling wine or champagne to get it started.

My choice of bubbles is Korbel Brut, a California Champagne, which you can pick up at your local grocery store. It’s tasting notes include:

  • Medium-dry finish, perfect for those who want something semi-sweet
  • Aromas of citrus and cinnamon, which makes it perfect for these fall mimosas
  • Flavors of orange, lime, vanilla, and strawberry
