Are you hosting a Mother’s Day brunch?  Then why not set up a champagne cocktail station so guests can create their own fizzy beverage?

This is such an easy idea.  Just start with champagne (I used Barefoot Bubbly; it’s inexpensive but is still yummy) and go from there.  One bottle will fill about 8 glasses, by the way.  If you would like to serve the kids, too, or just prefer a non-alcoholic version, sparkling grape juice is a wonderful substitute.

Next, select several juices to use as your add-ins.  I used orange juice for the traditional mimosa, plus a white grape/peach blend and a strawberry/kiwi blend.  Raspberries, peaches, and strawberries were my fruit add-ins, although the possibilities are endless. You could even puree them in the blender or food processor to add more of a fruit flavor to your drinks.

I found the cute vintage-style milk jugs at the Container Store, by the way, although I’ve seen similar ones at Bed Bath & Beyond and Target.  The chalkboard labels around their necks are from the dollar section at Michael’s.

I also made this cute chalkboard-style printable to tell guests exactly how to mix their yummy cocktails:

Even though I’m posting this right before Mother’s Day, it would be a wonderful option for any brunch or  afternoon event–Easter, New Year’s Day brunch, a bridal or baby shower, a ladies’ luncheon–the possibilities are endless.  Terry did a mimosa bar at her 37th birthday party and wrote about it {here}; check it out if you’d like some other ideas.
