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
  • Napkins
  • 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!
