Sangria Party + World Market Giveaway

June 3, 2013

Hello everyone! I so appreciate your kind comments on Friday’s post about slowing down for summer, thank you! We entertained a crowd on Saturday and with a little help from some friends we had a really great time. Some friends helped with food, another with the Pandora playlist and speakers, my friend Heidi took pictures, and Matt and I played host and hostess at our house. It’s always nice when friends chip in to make a party a success! The theme was Summer Sangria and with some supplies from World Market, I set up a sangria bar and it was a big hit.

I cleaned off our potting bench we built last year and used it temporarily as a beverage station. Two apothecary jar dispensers held the sangria so guests could pour and add a spear of fruit.

I try to get everything done in advance when it comes to parties where we’re hosting a crowd, so I set up the bar a few hours before.

Just before the guests arrived, I mixed up two kinds of sangria, a white version and a red version, with equal parts wine and sparkling juice in two apothecary jar dispensers.

For those that don’t drink (or want to take a break from alcoholic beverages) we also provided carafes of sparkling soda in various flavors.
