sangria bar drink station- add wine, fruit, herbs, and you have a seriously fabulous party stationAfter the Sangria Station at Erin’s Denver themed baby shower, I knew that we’d be doing another sangria bar sometime this summer. Sangria is just too summer-y, and refreshing (and great for a crowd) to pass up as a drink station at a party (or in this case, for a friend’s wedding!).

how to make a sangria barI know I say this all the time, but this really is one of those party elements that is fabulous, simple to put together, and not that expensive (especially compared to any drink station that includes alcohol).

sangria bar drink station- three kinds of sangriaThere were three jars of sangria- red, white and alcohol free.

    1. Thanks Amy! I love sangria with herbs… or lemonade with herbs… or mojitos, so figured they’d be the perfect Sangria Bar addition. 🙂
      And aren’t those straws great? Amazon. 🙂
      Thanks for the sweet comment!

  1. So beautiful! That decor is exactly what I am looking to do for my sweet Olivia’s first birthday (minus the adult beverage 🙂 )! Thanks for posting!
    SeeGirlSew is now on Facebook!

    1. Elise, I love that. I think the color scheme would work great for a first birthday party for sure!

  2. yay for party signage! i love the idea of a sangria bar (of course now i just need to find a reason to have one!) at a wedding/party/shower. i’ve often thought about doing a margarita bar too. fantastic idea!

  3. You are amazing! I die over the beauty here – and can I please have that wood background in my house – pretty please? The straws are awesome and the wheelbarrow drink bucket is perfection. Love love love it!

    1. Stef, what a sweet comment. And YES, would that wood background be a dream to have around (if only for photoshooting, right?). 🙂 Such a high compliment coming from you- you do such a great job with parties!

  4. Hi there.

    Any chance you ladies are ready to release your sangria printables?

    Would die to have them. I emailed you on your Etsy site too.


  5. I am in love with your drink stations! How can I get the recipes to the Sangria station?

    1. Hey Rachel! Thank you.
      I should put those on here- good reminder (I think I wrote down what I did somewhere- I’ll have to dig around and find it!). If you need the recipes immediately, I think I googled ‘sangria for a crowd’ and found a red base, white base, and non-alcoholic base that sounded good. Hope that helps!
