A Tropical Touch
Transport your guests to tropical paradise by styling your drink station with palm leave backdrops, pops of flamingo pink and metallic pineapple accessories. Pina Colada anyone?
A Rustic Affair
If you’re dreaming of a woodland, rustic or country style wedding day, we suggest displaying your drinks on wooden crates. You could even serve your drinks in mason jars wrapped with hessian or burlap for an extra nod towards your rustic wedding theme. Keep on top of the latest wedding trend by adorning your drink station with lots of wild greenery and foliage.
It’s all about how you style and decorate your wedding drink station. From mason jars filled with colourful striped straws to show-stopping table runners, don’t underestimate the impact your accessories will have. Opt for accessories and decorations that enhance your wedding theme and colour scheme. Display your drinks in simple glass drinks dispensers so that guests can help themselves during the big day. You could use wooden, blackboard or acrylic signs to showcase your menu. Serve your cocktails with pretty garnishes, such as edible flowers or fruit slices. Plant pots and vases brimming with beautiful Summer blooms will give your wedding drink station a floral touch, perfect if you’re planning an elegant country garden wedding theme.
