With summer coming to an end and the school year starting up, everyone has been busy. Whether they have vacationed on the beach or getting their kids ready for school, everyone has been busy. Therefore, you haven't been able to see friends or family too much. So, what better time to throw a party and get everyone together? However, put a fun twist on a girl's night in with a cupcake and cocktails themed party. Wedding and Party Network has a few party tips to make this party theme and success!
Mixing & Matching
The most important part about this party is making sure you have a variety of cupcakes with the right cocktails to match. The best suggestion is to visit your local bakery or caterer and ask them what's the best pairings. Or, if you have free time, try it out for yourself.
First, sit down and create a cupcake menu. Decide on vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, carrot, Oreo cupcake, German chocolate, or other flavors of cupcakes. There are a ton of variations out there. So, choose your favorite.
Next, choose the cocktails to match. You can do beer, cocktails, wine, or all three. You can even incorporate some of that into cupcakes. Your local bakery will know exactly the right combination. Don't forget that the flavors should compliment each other. They counteract off each other and that is why pairings work well with the palette.
This party doesn't have to be extravagant. It's just a great time for girlfriends to get together and catch up on the summer and to get in a bit of relaxation time before the new school year. Your focus is the cupcake and drink table. Select a beautiful patterned table-cloth and find the right platters to match.
So, get your girlfriends together and have a great girl's night in with some delicious cupcakes and cocktails. Everyone will enjoy catching up at this fun twist of a party!
