Hey party peeps!
Do you have a teen party coming up and have no idea what to do? Well, you’re not alone! THE MOST questions I get from frantic parents who don’t know what to do are for teen parties. They can be daunting, but here is an idea that you can easily incorporate into pretty much any teen party and look like a TOTAL ROCK STAR– THE MOCK-TINI BAR!
Over on Hostess With The Mostess, I shared with you how to setup a fabulous designer “Mock-tini” self serve bar for your next teen party. If you missed it, you can click here to see it. AND don’t miss the complete “Girlfriend’s Guide To Party Planning Supply List” at the end of this post where I tell you where I got EVERYTHING for this table design!
Setting the bar up is easy! Follow these 4 steps:
1. Pre-mix all the drinks and have them in pitchers on the bar
2. Put out lots of classic drink glassware on the bar to serve the drinks in
3. Place small bowls of garnishments for the drinks on the bar
4. Have plenty of the pre-mixed drinks chilling in the refrigerator to replenish the bar
Today I will share with you a few Mock-tini recipes to create non-alcoholic drinks to serve on your bar. Mocktails come in many different flavors and colors…so you are sure to find just the right Mock-tail for your teen party. All of these recipes and photos were found here for reference.
