Geometric Party Drink Station + Spring Birds

When I was recently hired by Seagram’s Escapes to be part of their Keep it Colorful campaign for spring, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to dream up something fun & unexpected!

Instead of using lots of flowers and garden-style details (as typical to most spring themes), this drink station has a very modern, geometric-inspired look. I still incorporated some cute bird elements, though, as a playful nod to the season. Speaking of cute birds, download the free printables here!

The Inspiration

I have a slight obsession with the combo of pink, orange, and green/mint right now, and just happened to stumble on the perfect backdrop element in those exact colors…. in the form of a geometric print shower curtain from Target!

There are also plenty of pink and orange-hued Seagram’s Escapes flavors that fit this palette perfectly. I went with Wild Berries, Peach Fuzzy Navel, and Jamaican Me Happy… which definitely lives up to its name! 😉

Geometric Styled Drink Station - Pink Orange Mint

Signature Drink Stations

I love to approach styled drink stations as a combo of decoration + function. This means they also serve as a focal point or “centerpiece” for your party, just like a styled dessert station would.

And instead of trying to pile every drink option onto one table, which can get crowded fast, you can make things easier by narrowing the focus to just your specialty and/or signature drinks. Other essentials like soda, water, etc. can easily be stocked in coolers or on a separate area.

This signature drink station features colorful bottles of Seagrams Escapes + other juices and liquors. Guests can pick and choose from all the options on the table to whip up their own unique cocktail! See the bottom of the post for some suggested cocktail recipe combinations.

Details, Decorative Details

The color-blocked bird and birdhouses seen here started out as a plain gray cement bird (from the garden section at Target) and unfinished wooden birdhouses from Michaels. I loved their modern silhouettes and thought they’d fit into the geometric theme nicely… once decked out with a little paint, of course! 👩‍🎨 I also spray-painted a little plate holder display stand and used it to hold the party straws.

My standard drink dispensers already have a great geometric shape… but I displayed them inside wall cubes embellished with paper shapes for some added geometric flair. This also created a nice little haven underneath for the beverage napkins to sit. 😉

I used hexagon-shaped craft punches in 2 different sizes to embellish the tissue tassel garland on the front of the table, and also to make paper tassels for the “SIPS” balloon letters hanging on the backdrop.

The paper hexagons are attached to the table linen with 3D Zots.

Speaking of the table linen – did you notice the cool corner accents that magically matched the backdrop? (See bottom right image, above.)

I used a Tablevogue cover for the linen here (in the 5-foot size), which has pleats in the corners that make this effect super easy to achieve. You can just tuck an extra strip of fabric into the pleats at the top, and voila – perfectly coordinating linen!

Colorful Glassware

Last but not least, I can’t forget to mention the color-blocked glasses, which are actually embellished with… balloons!

To make these, I just cut the “tail” off the balloon, turned the glasses upside down, and stretched the remaining portion of the balloon around the bottom of the glass.

Such a quick and totally MESS-FREE way to get the fun color-blocked look! Hallelujah. 🙌
