Hosting a holiday party this year? We have such a charming set-up for you and a very delicious, festive Mulled Pineapple Cider recipe! If you’re throwing a holiday dinner party it’s imperative to have a warm and welcoming cocktail upon arrival. We served ours up with personalized drink stirs using the P-touch Embellish ribbon and tape printer to make them feel extra special.
For the cocktail, we chose to do something a little different and instead of mulled apple cider, we went with a mulled golden pineapple cider, spiked with rum and brandy! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this cocktail. The aromas fill the house with spices and it smells so good! It warms the soul on those cold winter nights. This Mulled Pineapple Cider recipe is not too sweet and has the perfect amount of rum and brandy. It’s a must this holiday season! Recipe below!
For the personalized party details, we used our – P-touch Embellish so we can personalize and customize ribbon and tape! There are 14 different fonts, cute symbols and patterns that are perfect for parties and entertaining this holiday season. Honestly, we had a lot of fun with this and testing out different designs. I also love how custom everything looks! It’s as if I ordered professionally printed ribbon with all of my guests’ names on it! The quality is spot on and looks incredible.
For a personalized favor, we tied a custom ribbon that had each of our guest’s names and tied the ribbon around clear ornaments. Each ornament was filled with shiny gold candy and hung from the branches above the bar. They were so pretty and doubled as perfect decor too!
We made charming drink stirs that also act as drink markers using the gold patterned tape and a bamboo skewer. The tape made it easy to print a name, then tape it together around the bamboo stick.
I had my friend Erin make me a beautiful asymmetrical wreath and we thought it would be pretty to hang a ribbon from the wreath that said “Happy Holidays” in a repeated patterned, with a snowflake icon!
You could also use this machine to label each candy and drink on the bar if you wanted to do that too! I have a feeling we’ll be using this quite a bit while entertaining.
Hope you’re all inspired to create some charming details for your holiday cocktail bar!
