At cocktail parties, champagne and mixed drinks are the order of the evening. Unless you intend to hire a bartender, it's best to stick to only a few types of mixed drinks so that the host doesn't end up working all night.
But what if you don't want to offer only a few drinks? There's a really clever solution to this problem. Create a bar station where guests can make their own drinks.
Display our free printable vintage cocktail recipes poster or recipe cards so guests can try something new and won't have to wonder how to create, say, a cosmopolitan cocktail or a gimlet.
Supply all of the ingredients for the drinks on the cards and be sure to have fun items to garnish the drinks: tiny umbrellas, frilly toothpicks, cut fruit and stir sticks.
Don't miss our Non Alcoholic Punch Recipes. It's always a great idea to serve a variety of beverages. A few non-alcoholic drinks means that everyone can enjoy the party, even if they are the designated driver.

The future is now! Remember George Jetson (and his boy Elroy)? The old cartoon, "The Jetsons" is the inspiration of this fun filled night. No, we’re not talking about funny space ships and freeze dried food (although that would be a fun themed party). We’re talking about an ultra modern cocktail party.
For a chic modern cocktail party, go with futuristic styled drinks, sushi served on teired glass pedistals, and neon lights. The more outlandish the better, let your imagination roar!
