When I brunch, I love having mimosas. Endless mimosas are great when I brunch out, but mimosa bars at home are even better. I love having options to pair with champagne, and mimosa bars are the best way to please everybody.

My favorite flavors are "Flamingo" - orange juice, cranberry juice and champagne, pineapple juice and champagne, or peach juice and champagne. A variety of juices is key, as are a variety of fruit garnishes. I almost always have orange slices, berries, and peach slices. Any combination of fruit is guaranteed to look gorgeous.

Whether you like champagne, prosecco, or any other variety of sparkling wine, make sure it is nicely chilled and you have enough on hand. I usually keep a few in a large ice bucket once my brunches start, and guests can help themselves.

Glassware is important. I love champagne flutes, and prefer stemless for parties - I think it's just easier both for display, ease of use and in cleaning. You can use real glass or nowadays get some pretty real looking plastic ones too. I always have fun straws on hand to add to my mimosa bar. Straws are a great way to tie in your theme or color scheme. Whichever you prefer, always keep it classy, and have fun!

  1. A wonderful start to brunch and #BrunchWeek. Thanks again for hosting Terri.

  2. I recently posted a mimosa bar on my blog too! They are so fun and guests really are impressed by it despite how simple it is.

    1. Mimosa bars are so much fun - so many possibilities and great presentation!

  3. One of my favorite brunch spots has "bottomless mimosas." I will definitely set up a mimosa bar soon. Great idea, Terri! And thanks, as always, for hosting such a great week-long event!!

    1. Bottomless mimosas are definitely great when out. Thanks for participating and hope you have a fun mimosa bar soon!

  4. Love your mimosa bar! I agree, they are a must have at brunch!

  5. What a lovely display. I want to come to brunch at your house!
    Thanks again for hosting such a great event. I've been looking forward to this since last year!

  6. I can't wait to try the Flamingo option! Mimosas are the best part of brunch!

  7. Mix your own Mimosas is a great ice breaker for any brunch!

  8. A beautiful display. I like mine with OJ and a splash of cranberry! Love the idea of peach juice - like a Bellini.
