How to Make a Mimosa Bar

The Mimosa Bar was a big hit at Ashley’s bridal shower and is one of my new favorite things. The inspiration came from a photo that Ashley saw over at KoJo Designs  and another one that I found over at mintlovessocialclub.com.

I’ll tell you more about the decor theme in a few days, but today I wanted share some free printables and details on how to make your very own Mimosa Bar.

Here’s a list of what you’ll need: (quantities are for 50 or so people – adjust for the size of your party)

  • 6 bottles of champagne
  • 1 gallon of orange juice
  • 2 flavors of fruit juice -2 or 3 bottles of each. (see tip below)
  • Cut-up fruit such as strawberry, pineapple, oranges or grapes
  • Glasses – we used mason jars with name tags and straws

Tip: I was really worried about running out of juice, but didn’t want to have a bunch left over, nor did I have room in my refrigerator for any more, so I purchased a few cans of frozen juice and ended up using two of them. That worked out perfect.

Tip: My son’s fiance brought a beautiful fruit tray to use with the Mimosa bar which was a great idea.

Ashley found these fun carafes at Meijer’s for less than $10.00 each…

She may or may not get them back.  I used them this past weekend for Easter Brunch, I love them.

I’ll share the details about the theme that evolved in a few days, but here’s a close up of some of the the card stock used for the labels, sign and banner…

I cut the patterned shapes with my Silhouette Cameo. The white labels were created in Photoshop…

…and cut out with a 3″ hole punch and the two were glued together. A traditional hole puncher was used at the top of the label and a piece of twine was cut to tie the label around the neck of the carafe.  Click this link for a free printable to make your own labels.

I also made you this free printable for the mimosa sign

The inspiration for the mimosa sign came from Natalie over at mintlovesocial.com. Her friends threw a lovely shower for her and she has some free printables over there as well.

Like the labels, I created the sign in photoshop, printed directly on a gingham piece of card stock and framed it in a 5×7 Ikea frame…

But, after I did this I came up with the brilliant idea of printing the sign on vellum so I can re-use with any pattern…

This way you always have the sign and frame, but can add any style/color of scrapbook paper or card stock to match your theme…

The banner was done 100% with my silhouette cameo. I love how it turned out…

And what about these mason jars with color tags? I made the tags with hairbands and office tags!  You can find a tutorial for them by clicking here.

Have a party coming up? I highly recommend a mimosa bar… they’re festive, fun and super easy to do! xo Amy
