Birthday Brunch Bar Cart Party

Birthday Brunch Bar Cart Party

Hosting a birthday celebration? You’ve come to the right place for lots of party inspiration! I teamed up with Simply Juice Drinks for the launch of their 3 new flavors (Fruit Punch + Mixed Berry + Tropical Punch) and styled a birthday brunch bar cart party. I’ve showcased my favorite food pairings, a sweet alternative to a birthday cake, and mini mimosas so cute that you’ll want to serve them at every party! Read on for more pictures and the details…

Now let’s talk a bit about my favorite food pairings and recipe ideas. I wanted to serve fruit at the brunch but with a little twist. I combined ½ cup champagne with ½ cup Simply Mixed Berry to create a delicious glaze dressing for the mini mixed berry cups. Tossing the fruit with the glaze and filling up the cups was oh so easy and delicious.Boozy Berry Cups, Fruit Salad topped with a Champagne Berry Glaze!

I recommend having a savory food or two. Other ideas include mini cheese croissants or mini ham biscuits.

Mini Berry Mimosas for a Brunch Birthday Cocktail

The juice drinks are absolutely fabulous on their own but since it’s a birthday party, we had to serve up a cocktail. Brunch is the perfect time to enjoy mimosas but move over orange juice, Mixed Berry Mimosas are my new favorite! Combine equal parts dry champagne with Simply Mixed Berry and add a splash of triple sec for a delicious beverage. For a fun serving idea, swap out traditional champagne flutes for mini glasses. Check your party stores for mini serving ware. Cut fun straws down to size and serve on a coordinating cake stand for the perfect cocktail for greeting party guests!

Donut Cake for a Birthday Brunch Donut Cake for a Birthday Brunch

Since we’re celebrating before noon, a traditional birthday cake just doesn’t fit the bill. Use a large cake stand as a base for a donut cake! Stack your favorite donuts and garnish with donut holes. Add sprinkles and dramatically tall tapered birthday candles for a fabulously festive celebration.

Birthday Bar Cart Brunch Best Day Ever Birthday Favor Bags Birthday Brunch Bar Cart Party

Time for decorations! A bar cart is a wonderful alternative to a larger party table or seated party setting. I layered my bar cart with a festive wrapping paper and framed “Birthday Brunch” in a fun gold frame. Lots of balloons add party flair and simple favor bags with “best day ever” messaging are the perfect take-home for guests. Keep decor all about the food and drinks! Add in polka dot straws and plate all your food pairings on cake stands for added height and decoration!
