VIP Lounge: Champagne Bar

One of my favorite things at a shower is the food and drink.
And what better way to celebrate a big life occasion- like a wedding or a baby- than with a glass of bubbly?
Not if you're the mom-to-be, of course.
But the rest of us will toast you with champagne in hand!
Everyone's taste runs a little different when it comes to champagne.
From bellinis to poinsettas to mimosas... the options are endless.
So, why not make your own cocktail?
Champagne bars are becoming a popular feature at showers.
This adorable set-up is brought to you by Eat Drink Pretty.
She used empty wine bottles for peach juice and orange juice.
And cute DIY labels on each bottle help you know what cocktail you are creating.
If you don't have empty wine bottles, juice carafes like these will do the trick.
I found this cute guide that is actually on the Food Network website. It's a breakdown of some of the most popular champagne cocktails.
Yesterday, I stopped by a local vintage shop I've been dying to visit. And I found some great stuff, perfect for a champagne bar at an upcoming baby shower I'm hosting!

I snagged the purple vase and a pair of purple wine glasses.

I also found a clear juice carafe- and all of it was less than $12!

I figure the vase can either be used for flowers- or for ice water and lemon.

And it's all sitting on top of my chalkboard china platter, which will be a perfect setting for my champagne bar.

What DIY ideas do you have when it comes to food & drinks?
