Now that we've covered the invitations and decorations it’s time to set up a candy bar and a Bellini bar. A candy bar is always a sure hit at any party. As for a Bellini bar, if you don’t know what it is its time to find out and add one to your party. They’re easy to prepare and a great way to let your guests customize their drinks. Let’s start with the candy bar.
Since you already have your color scheme selecting your candies should be relatively easy. Many bulk suppliers will let you purchase candies all in one color. Pick out your candies in blue and white and maybe black or another color if you've decided to incorporate it into your Tiffany scheme. Inside Scoop in Eastland Mall here in Evansville, IN allows you to purchase jelly beans and m&m’s all in one color. Make sure you don’t go overboard on buying candy. Look at buying maybe 1/3 to ½ pound of candy per item instead of per guest. If you have the time check out online stores like Candy Warehouse, where you can pick from an even larger variety of candies to choose from like blue and white squiggly lollipops, blue and silver Hershey Kisses, blue tootsie rolls, rock candy and so much more.
Add your candy to your table in different size jars, bowls and crystal ware that you've decorated with Tiffany blue ribbon or tags. Even large martini glasses can be used for this. Vary in sizes to make the table more appealing. Also don’t forget to have on hand those Tiffany boxes or bags that we discussed earlier so guests can take some candy home with them. Now on to the Bellini bar!
A drink originated in Venice, Italy it’s originally made with a white peaches puree and Prosecco and named after the color of the toga of a saint in a painting by Venetian artist Giovanni. In America, the drink is more lax and can be made with any sparkling wine or champagne and even non alcoholic with Perrier or Spite.
Filled several small glass decanters with fruit purees like mango, peaches and strawberries next to several bottles of your sparkly. All guests have to do is mix their own drinks with the fruit. Make sure you let your guests know to pour about 2 tablespoons of the fruit into their glasses and pour the sparkly in slowly to avoid fruit foam. For an easy Bellini recipe click here
