Inspiration: Dream Drink Station Ideas
The party over the weekend turned out beautifully. It was great to see all of the details come together. I can’t wait to share the finished dessert table and party details.
One area that I wished we had spent more time decorating was the drink station. Although we had a nice assortment of drinks and fun matching straws, with all of the focus on styling the dessert table, I wish I’d spent more time dressing up the drink area with custom drinkware and other accessories. It’s definitely never too late to start brainstorming ideas for the next party. Here are some “dream” drink stations I might have to take some hints from in the future.

It’s always important to include drink labels on your pitchers and drink dispensers. Although coordinating party labels are beautiful, I like the look of this vintage chalkboard to make it easy for guests to identify their choices.

A drink station doesn’t have to be complicated. I love the simplicity of this lemonade stand – two drink options, natural twine decorated drinkware, and a burlap tablecloth. Easy and beautiful at the same time.

One area of the drink station that I need to work on is displaying the straws so they are more accessible to guests. I love how they are placed in a mason jar for this display and the cups coordinate with matching party stickers.

Keeping colors in the same family is an important aspect of party styling. I love how the drink choices match the overall party theme colors. It’s another great way to add color to the room with edible elements.

This drink station set-up has wonderful symmetry. I love the softness added by the mason jar full of flowers, vintage doily, and scrapbook paper wrapped mason jars.

I love this drink station set-up for a pirate party. The natural twine wrapped around the drink dispenser and glass bottles pulls the look together. In case guests are unsure of what to do with the party straws, set them up in glasses ahead of time. This way if they don’t use them to drink out of, they still make a nice drink accent.

I love how these mason jars are decorated with scrapbook paper and rickrack trim. They add a nice personal touch that match the fun patterns of this Fruit and Flower Garden Party. The flower drink sticks are also an adorable addition!

This drink station is perfect inspiration for an outdoor summer party. I love the fabric wrapped mason jars and how the ice buckets were dressed up with bandannas. They’ve also added straws to the drinking glasses and left some out for the other guests to use.
Finding all of this drink station inspiration has made me excited to host my next party. I can’t wait to focus more energy on decorating this important party area.
