“Set the mood with a ‘make your own cocktail bar,’ complete with cocktail picks, napkins, fun paper straws, and drinkware,” suggests Ashley Stark Kenner, creative director of STARK. “Use a mix of mini bowls, plates, and jars to display fresh-cut fruit, basil, and purees."

"Challenge your guests to create and name their own signature cocktail," she suggests. "It makes for great conversation, photo-ops, and fun hashtags! If you're providing fruit intended for a drink garnish, make sure to pre-cut slits into each piece so guests can easily add it to the edge of their drinkware.”
