Mimosa bars are perfect for daytime weddings and brunches. All you need is some champagne and fresh fruit juices. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
2. Sangria Bar
Who doesn’t love sangria? A sangria station adds a fun, festive kick to your wedding day festivities. Your guests are sure to love it.
3. Grilled Cheese Station
Just because you’re getting married doesn’t mean you have to give up “kid” food. A sophisticated, “grown up” grilled cheese bar will be popular amongst guests of all ages.
4. Pancake Bar
Thinking about brunch? Try a pancake bar! Set up a griddle and let guests choose from a selection of delicious toppings, from fruit to whipped cream to maple syrup. A perfect counterpart to the mimosa bar.
5. S’mores Bar
S’mores are everyone’s best friends. A classic, simple, sticky sweet treat, they’re sure to be a huge hit amongst kids and adults alike. Glam it up by adding original ingredients like nutella, white chocolate or granola.
6. Rootbeer Float Bar
What better way to take you back to your childhood than a rootbeer float bar? And besides, who can resist a good old fashioned ice cream float? All it takes is some vanilla ice cream and an assortment of sodas.
7. Sundae Bar
Simple but delicious, sundae bars are the best way to your guests’ hearts through their stomachs. Set up a station with a variety of ice cream flavors and toppings, and you’re good to go.
