Party Punch

19 April 2011

Giveaway time! Be sure to check it out on today's post! 

     I love adorable looking beverage tables. I think a great looking beverage table gives the party the perfect "punch!"  There are so many ways to beautifully arrange tables and many delicious drink recipes.  Today, I am going to share a few with you.
This first beverage table is from an outdoor wedding.  It inspired by an incredibley awesome place to shop:   Anthropologie.  I love it's simplicity. 
 I found this photograph at Santa Barbara Chic Blog.

These two pictures are from Elizabeth Anne Designs.  They too are from an outdoor wedding.  The antique table is beautiful and not over the top.  I really like the berry water.  I'm definitely going to try that this summer!

The above beverage tables are from a bridal shower.  These pictures are copied from Eat Drink Pretty.   Again, a simplex design. . .very clean and very pretty.

Ok.  So there are some delightful beverage tables.  Now for the delicious punches and drinks they provide a home for.

My favorite party punch is a yummy champagne punch.

1 bottle of your favorite champagne (approximately 25 oz.)
4 quarts of pink or regular lemonade
Mix to taste.  Toss in strawberries, limes, or lemons.

Here is a quick and easy non-alcoholic party punch.

2 - 2 liter bottles of ginger ale
2 -2 liter bottles of strawberry flavored soda
2 cups lemon sherbet
8 ounces frozen strawberries, sliced
Combine soda, add sherbet and stir in the strawberries.

This adorable octopus punch was found on Better Homes and Gardens.  This display is perfect for a monster themed party, a Halloween party, or an ocean animal themed party.

Today's post showed you some beautfiul beverage tables that are easy to replicate for almost any occasion.  The party punch recipes and ideas mentioned are also perfect for any of your celebrations, big or small.

    i like a good old fashioned sherbet + 7UP! I entered it into a Mocktails party once and it didn't win on presentation but it def won on taste!

  2. I'm gonna go with the good old lemonade with a twist-put 1 or 2 bottles of each orange and lemon soda together (if you want to do something more interesting, you could add strawberry soda or pineapple juice) and throw in fresh slices of lemon and orange, maybe some spearmint to decorate it. You could even add some champagne or vodka if isn't for kids :).

    Also, another great punch is pineapple juice/soda with lots and lots of red berries (they could be frozen) and even pineapples.

  3. i love lemonade or iced tea :)

  6. I like sun tea (which isn't really a punch, but we jazz it up with all sorts of fresh fruit, so it's pretty and yummy).
