Celebrate the New Year with a fun DIY sangria bar! Make a delicious batch of red sangria and have your guests fill their glasses with fruit to garnish their drinks!
Since New Year’s Eve is all about partying until midnight and beyond, we set up an after midnight sangria bar!
This is a fun idea DIY sangria bar that you can create quickly at home. It’s perfect for celebrations. When the clock strikes 12, you can enjoy a glass of sangria and some dessert. What better way to celebrate a new year!
DIY Sangria Bar
A sangria bar lets guests add their own twists on their sangria by adding different fruit, juice and berries!
- Bottle of red wine
- Cinnamon sticks
- Ginger ale
It’s an amazing blend and very easy to make! I placed extra fruits and garnishes out and also served Frontera’s Night Harvested Moonlight white blend.
Sangria Bar Decorations
For the decor, we kept it dark and moody since it’s all about midnight. We used this tutorial and made a gorgeous, gold fringe garland which turned out awesome to drape behind the bar. Here are some ideas for decorations.
- Happy New Year Sign – Silver or Gold
- Confetti Stars
- Flowers – always a must!
- Marble bowls and trays
- Glass Sangria Pitcher or Drink Dispenser
- Cocktail picks
I absolutely love the look of the DIY fringe we made. We layered it with this Happy New Year sign and placed gorgeous flowers on the bar.
It’s the simple decor, but looks classic and chic!
Easy Steps For Setting up a Sangria Bar
- Make extra sangria to store in the refrigerator when one runs out.
- Fruit makes wonderful decor as well as flavors the sangria! Buy extra to place around for a festive look.
- Make a rosé sangria or white wine sangria for the bar as well. A sangria bar with 3 varieties of sangria is pretty awesome!

I know this post is several years old but I was wondering where your cocktail glasses are from. I love them!
Do you squeeze the juice from the fruit into the recipe? How do you mix it all together
Love this idea for a NYE party! The garland and floral arrangement make a gorgeous backdrop for the sangria bar, and that drink looks delicious!
