How To Set Up A New Year's Eve Bubbly Bar

Bring on the bubbly! I can't believe another year has gone by, not sure where the time went! One of my favorite things for artfullyalissa that I started exploring this summer was tablescapes and tips for entertaining. I grew up in a house that always hosted amazing parties and that became the place family, friends and neighbors gathered. So to celebrate the end of a great year, what better way to ring in 2019 than a bubbly bar?

Inspired by novelty champagne bubbles, I loved the idea of replicating them throughout the set up by decorating cupcakes that had a bubble effect, incorporating tinsel drink stirs, and adorable circle glitter. The overall theme I used was complimented by the gold and silver hues and accent pieces.

When building your bubbly bar, select items that will highlight your champagne or in this case 90+ Cellars Lot 49 Sparkling Rose! Using the champagne, toppings and glasses as your focal points will help you build around each item with desserts and decor. Start laying out your bubbly bar by playing around with the positioning of your champagne bucket, glasses, decor elements and dessert platters. Make sure there's enough space between each item so the bar doesn't look cluttered but cohesive. From there, I used gold stars as decorative fillers to add dimension and a festive look. You can also use flowers, clocks, really anything with a New Year's theme!

For toppings, I selected cranberries, raspberries and blackberries, which can be added to your bubbly or placed on the drink stir! I love cupcakes so I decided to go with Martha Stewart's Devil's Food Cupcakes, using a buttercream frosting, Sixlets and Wilton sprinkles to give the cupcakes a bubble look.

Whether you're hosting a New Year's Eve party or heading out to celebrate, I wish you a wonderful New Year and can't wait to continue sharing fun content with all of you!
