Over the weekend, my friends and I got together to have a Christmas pajama party at my house and sip mimosa’s around the tree! I can’t even begin to tell you how nice it is to have a little girl time. I put together a fun little self serve mimosa bar and I’ll be giving you tips on how to put one together yourself! Plus I’m talking about why hosting your girlfriends for a fun get together may be just what you need, especially during the busy holiday months!
I’ve made mimosa bars before and they are such a great option when you are hosting friends. To make the drinks a bit more holiday themed I included cranberry and grapefruit juice in addition to orange. I always choose a drier sparkling wine to mix these with because it balances the sweetness. A good ratio to pour is 1/4 juice to 3/4 sparkling wine or champagne.
Skewers with fresh cranberries, boxwood wreaths and wrapped gifts all made a festive addition the bar cart. I kept the sparkling wine chilled in a champagne bucket on my thrifted peacock chair and made the juice signs from extra gift wrap and velvet ribbon.
And let me tell you, it really doesn’t hurt when you have friends that are good at popping bottles!
Making time during the busy holiday season to get together with friends was just what I needed. A little girl time goes a long way and these girls are always so much fun to spend time with. You can imagine, being a stay at home mom I don’t get as much adult interaction as before, so I totally cherish my girl time!
And we happened to have the first snowfall of the year the night before! We just had to throw on our boots and coats to grab some photo’s outside. There’s really something magical about a coating of fresh white snow this time of the year.
