Spring is the season of new beginnings and a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be. The days are welcomed with the sound of birds chirping, the aroma of bulb flowers, and the feeling of renewal provided by the warmth of the sun. As the late actor Robin Williams once said, “it’s nature’s way of saying ‘let’s party!’” Taking that cue, we’ve sourced the state to assemble a soiree that packs a pastel punch.
Graze on Main is a small charcuterie and wine shop located in the heart of East Greenwich where you can find multiple types of organic bubbly, including a non-alcoholic option. For a well-balanced mimosa, professional grazer Elyse Paré recommends mixing two parts prosecco with one part juice and top off with the cold-pressed juice of your preference from Fully Rooted. Beyond traditional orange juice, consider Echinacea Sunrise, a unique option with a gorgeous garnet hue; with hints of orange, cucumber, pineapple, beets, and house-made echinacea extract, the blend complements the prosecco wonderfully. Pro-tip: on average, one bottle of bubbly can make six to eight mimosas. Know your audience, and plan accordingly!
Spring pastels can be sweet or sophisticated depending on what you include in your display; use rustic elements and metallic finishes to veer toward the elegant. A bouquet of billowing sweetpeas, textured tulips, and petal pink roses designed by Plant Girl Shop adds a natural element to the setting. Visit the shop in East Greenwich, place an order, or subscribe to one of their flower subscriptions to keep fresh blooms around all year long.
TIP: Fill empty nooks and crannies in your display with fresh fruit
Welcome guests to the mimosa bar by affixing a wreath to the wall; self-adhesive wall hooks keep things simple. Have fun with glassware, which also adds height and dimension – lustrous options from Homestyle on Providence’s Westminster Street sparkle soft reflections and tie all of the pieces together.
A fun way to interact with your guests is by having them choose a wine charm for their glass. The Bees + Blooms Collection from AUCOIN offers hand-detailed wine charms and illustrated cocktail napkins with dainty bees, butterflies, and charming floral designs.
