I don’t know about you, but I love Champagne. It doesn’t have to be New Year’s Eve or a wedding to bring out the bubbly. Whenever Bob and I pop a bottle of Champagne whether it is for a special occasion or just a special dinner at home, it makes the moment feel like a party. There is something magical about that “pop” and no matter when you pop a bottle of Champagne, that pop signifies the party has started!
I have often thought that a Champagne party, yes just to celebrate how great it is, would be as good a reason as any to have a party. So let’s (pretend to) plan such a party. We’ll plan the perfect Champagne party by gathering up pictures, ideas and goodies from many online sources. The venue, or home, would be decorated with these clear balloons that mimic Champagne bubbles. (Pictured above) The tables will be graced with the cocktail napkins below.
Along with the balloon décor the walls will have French Vintage Champagne Posters strategically placed for inspiration, not that we will need any!
The invitations would be similar to this one I found.
Now for the edibles, of course caviar, and other fancy yet satisfying appetizers are in order. I found a recipe for Champagne cupcakes I think sound perfect.
The barware would consist of a selection of different Champagne glasses that would be chic to intermix and play with the many shapes and patterns.
Let’s not forget the Champagne buckets – they would be varied too. Wine stoppers can add to the whimsy also.
Champagne is expensive for a reason. Even though a good bottle of bubbly is splurge-worthy, we would have to budget accordingly and therefore the guest list would be smaller, so the Champagne bottles could be a-plenty! It can be confusing picking the right bottles of Champagne, if in doubt refer back to my blog about picking the right Champagne. My favorite is always a Brut, which is the driest.
Ok, there’s the planning – I’ll be waiting for my invitation in the mail. Oh, remember, there’s never enough Champagne!
