So you want to have some friends over for some drinks, but you don’t want the stress of putting it all together? Or you don’t want to have the same old thing at your house that everyone else has at theirs? At a party recently, I spied some pretty cool ideas that were pretty simple, yet fun and different. I thought I’d share them with you.
First, the drinks…
I thought the make-your-own mimosa bar was a cute idea and so easy. Also, you don’t have to deal with making drinks during the party. It’s completely self serve yet something a little bit different than the standard line-up of wine bottles. Set this up and you’re done.
Onto the next idea… Jenga anyone?
I loved the Jenga in a jar idea as well. Sitting on a table at the party was a jar of Jenga pieces and some markers. Guests took a wooden piece of the Jenga puzzle and wrote a message on it for the honoree. The message could be a piece of advice, something funny or just a good wish. Then the personalized Jenga game becomes a gift and also a great memory for the party’s honoree. This is a great idea for an anniversary or birthday party, as well as a shower/engagement or retirement party.
Last but not least, and my personal favorite, was the wine basket gift idea. See below:
