A champagne brunch bridal shower makes for an animated and sparkling themed party! To plan a great event there are so many details to consider besides setting up a mimosa bar! Read on for great decor, menu, and game ideas!
Planning Your Mimosa Bar
Your mimosa station is most likely to be the focus point of your bridal shower! For starters, choosing different types of bubbly will help you please the taste buds of all your guests. From a sweet to extra dry champagne , your guests will have no difficulties finding a favorite to prepare their cocktails. Calculate approximately one third to half of a 750 ml bottle of bubbly per guest. For a group of 20 people, I would go for at least 8 bottles of sparking beverage.
The preferred ratio for a delightful mimosa is one part bubbly for two parts of juice. Don’t be surprise however if your guests reverse that ratio!
Offer a variety of at least four chilled fruit juices that pair well with bubbly such as orange, grapefruit, raspberry lemonade, peach, and cranberry juice (a favorite of mine!) Orange juice is an all-time favorite so make sure to get a large bottle. Choose your fruit toppings according to what’s in season. Raspberries, strawberries, lemon or lime wedges are excellent choices.
Mimosa simple recipe:

Top with fresh fruits
Mimosas are best served in a champagne flute. If you’re expecting a large group at your event, see below for our practical, and affordable plastic flutes that can be personalized.
Champagne Brunch Bridal Shower Menu
Belgian waffles, French toasts, crepes, croissants, muffins, donuts and other pastries make for a diversity of fun foods for your brunch menu.
A favorite of mine are toasted bagels, smoked salmon, and cream cheese where you let your guests assemble their own delectable lox.
A quiche filled with spinach, tomatoes, mushroom and pieces of ham can be prepare the day before and reheat at the last minute.
My daughter’s potato brunch recipe is also a great choice. Small diced potatoes, onions, and red peppers seasoned with salt, pepper, and Italian spices roasted in the oven on a bakery sheet with a bit of olive oil. They are extremely yummy!
An assortment of fine cheeses, nuts and a colorful fresh fruit plates always make it at the top of my list when preparing a brunch menu.

Champagne Brunch Bridal Shower Game Ideas
You don’t necessarily have to play games at a bridal shower. It does however help break the ice and encourage your guests to mingle. After a few glasses of mimosa, keep in mind that you won’t be able to stop your guests from giggling and mingling! If you choose to play games limit yourself to one or two games only. A bridal shower is after all to shower the bride-to-be with gifts and make her feel extra special!
Once your guests had a few glasses of bubbly, invite them to play the Prosecco pong game. The objective of this game is all about landing your pink ping pong balls in other guest’s glasses. You’ll quickly get your guests to participate without having the risk of something getting damaged in your home or venue.
Another fun way to entertain your guests is the ring game. Each guest holds on to a ring and for the duration of the bridal shower they cannot say the word ‘wedding’. If someone hears it from a guest they simply take their ring. The winner is the person that collects the most rings. A nice touch is to have a small gift ready to congratulate the winner!
