Cocktail parties are commonplace these days, but a really great cocktail party is hard to forget. If you invite guests for a cocktail party you can centre your themes’ focus towards something that suits cocktails, like a tropical perhaps. This is quite easy. All you really have to do is find some stand-out cocktails, make them exceptionally well and give them names that suit your theme.
Keep it Simple:
Say you choose strawberry daiquiris, margaritas and piña coladas. They are well liked and everyone is sure to fancy at least one of them. You only need 3-5 well known cocktails- the rest is up to your imagination. Consider event hire to provide bars/ bartender to cater for everyone’s drinks.
Pair Finger Foods with your Cocktails:
Treats and eats can only add to the fun! You can pair finger foods with your selection of cocktails. Again, keep it simple. You can hire a popcorn machine or candyfloss machine to add to a colourful carnival ambience, or you could pair each cocktail with a specially chosen treat.
A chocolate fountain is another good foodie example! For strawberry daiquiris you can add special fresh strawberries for dipping; for piña coladas you can add coconut shavings and pineapple, and for the mojito a peppermint candy topping!
Tie the Cocktail List to your Theme:
Using the cocktails to fit your theme is a simple way to add theatre to your theme without changing much. If we use the same 3 examples; strawberry daiquiris, margaritas and piña coladas, there are many themes to tie them to:
- Tropical paradise- for the trend in cocktails.
- Spring time fruit- add bright colour and celebrate the coming of spring.
- Disney Princesses- for a girl’s night or event you could call the strawberry daiquiri; the Ariel (The Little Mermaid), the Margarita; Tiana (The Princess and the Frog) and the Piña Colada; the Moana (Moana).
You are only limited by your imagination, the events hire company will take care of the rest. Whatever you might want to make your party special, an events hire company will have available.
