Have fun with the food
Are you a foodie or a lover of treats? With a cocktail style reception you don’t have to limit yourself to a chicken or beef entree…. have a bit of everything!! The best part of a cocktail party is being able to sip, eat and mingle. So you can have food flowing all night long! With passed apps, food stations or dessert carts this variety will appease to the masses.
Get creative with your seating
Rounds of 8 or 10? Forget the traditional tables and do something more unique! Go ahead and do multiple areas for guests to gather. And don’t limit yourself to just one style, if you want boho meets rustic, with a touch of glam GO FOR IT! Having a variety of spaces for guests to gather and relax is always a good idea.
Everyone will be making their way to the bar at some point, might as well make it something worth talking about! Splurge on a flare bartender or have several fun cocktails and mock-tails for guests to try. Add fun bar signs to highlighting all that your offering and make it an experience!
