Create a Fruit-Infused Water Bar

Create an Infused Water Bar for your Spring Party

I noticed last summer that whenever I hosted family brunches or BBQ’s with tons of kids running around, my guests’ priority shifted away from cocktails and focused more on what their kids were getting into! After a few too many events where my bar station went untouched, I decided to start asking guests before they arrived if they planned to drink or not, and then opted whether to simply place a few bottles of Pellegrino or Lemonade in their place. This summer I wanted to come up with a fancier alternative to these pre-made drinks and I think this Fruit-Infused Water Bar hits it right on the nose.

Prepping your Bar for SummerTime outdoor Parties

To create this water bar is quite simple. You need three large glass pitchers, beverage dispensers, or as shown here, glass carafes from Pottery Barn {which are no longer available so I chose more options to shop at the bottom of the post}. Assign a different fruit to each pitcher {here I chose blueberry, strawberry, and pineapple}. Chop the fruit to fill the pitcher one third the way, fill with water, and chill 2-3 hours in the fridge. Once my carafes were ready to go on display, I placed them in a decorative wire basket {similar here}. *Note, if you are taking this outdoors, I recommend choosing an acrylic pitcher in lieu of glass!

Villeroy and Boch Water Goblets on Fashionable Hostess

To make this drink option feel a bit more elegant, I recommend using a wine glass or fancy water goblet. Here I chose my Villeroy and Boch Bernadotte Crystal glasses {which are on major sale right now!! Originally $32 and now $12.50 per glass on Villeroy-Boch.com}.

Come party time, set your glasses out prepped with a lemon wedge on the rim. Alongside the glasses place extra sliced fruits for garnish. Here I even pre-sprinkled a few blueberries for added color!
