I’m Leanna. This blog was born out of the chaos of mommin’ hard all day everyday while tackling little projects along the way! I hope you can find some easy DIY inspiration, family friendly recipes, and some other fun things to make your day while you are here.
Last weekend our neighborhood had an outdoor bar crawl and it was the best thing ever!! Since quarantine, we really haven’t seen most of our friends and this was such a fun idea to start off the summer! Let me also mention that we have the BEST neighborhood ever! I couldn’t have asked for better neighbors if I tried! For the bar crawl, each house had a signature drink. My house was first on the list, so I decided to go with my favorite morning drink, a Bloody Mary. Of course, I always have to make things look cute so I made a Bloody Mary bar with all the necessary toppings to make the best Bloody Mary Bar.
Bloody Marys are the perfect drink to serve at a brunch, bridal shower, engagement party, bachellorette party and so much more! The are fairly easy to make but you better have all the topping options!
All bloody Marys start with a good foundation. You will need
Garnishing a Bloody is the best part! You can go to the extreme, and top it with a mini hamburger or you can instead go the minimalist route with an old school celery stalk. Simon and I also had a Bloody Mary bar for our engagement Party and it was SO much fun!!!
Some garnish ideas include:
There are so many creative ideas out there on Pinterest, but I used a brown paper craft roll as my tablecloth to start. I love using craft paper for lots of things, and a tablecloth is my favorite. You can write fun saying on it, add the names of the toppings and also the directions on how to make the drink! It also makes for the easiest clean up; just roll it up at the end of the party and TOSS!
Feel free to get creative in how you set up the bar and what bowls and jugs you use.
You can also print out and frame this cute Bloody Mary Printable to add to the bar for all your guests to see! In my FREE printable library I also have other fun drink printables including a Margarita, Hurricane, Bellini, and lots more!
