Sometimes you just want to throw a party without alcoholic beverages. When will you ever throw a party without any alcohol, you might wonder? Well, at a baby shower, for instance. Or when a sober friend decides to re-enter society after a 3-month stint in rehab. That’s when! To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of non-alcoholic drinks to serve at your next sober party.
Preparing the Party Table
The drinks station forms an important part of any party. To decorate it, you may need linen napkins and table cloths. Choose tablecloths and napkins that are attractively coloured but dark enough to cover up food stains that could fall on them before or during the party. Maroon and navy can be the right choice because they have a bold colour character but can still hide blemishes. A linen napkin is good for absorbing the moisture of the canapes and the beverages. After preparing the table, and all the foods and snacks are ready, it’s time to get cracking with the non-alcoholic drinks. Refreshing and well chilled drinks are sure to add to the splendor of the party.
