Four Ideas For A Champagne Soiree 
From Friday night with the girls to a bold birthday bash, I'm a firm believer that any occasion can be a reason to clink glasses and pop a bottle of bubbly. To help you find your own inner-entertaining goddess, I've put together four fun ideas for throwing your own stylish champagne soiree: 
Personalize flutes. Leave those drink charms for the wine glasses! Instead, leave out a few different colors of Japanese Washi tape and let party goers decorate their flutes with their monogram or a fun pattern. It'll be easy to identify which cocktail belongs to each guest, and the tape peels off clean at the end of the night.
Serve individual sips. Doesn't everything look cute when it's miniature? There is a plethora of single serving champagnes available now -- serve them on a tray with tiny berries and striped straws. Everyone gets their own personal pop!
Rim with sparkles. I abide by Society Social's manifesto to Live Sparkly -- so why shouldn't my glass of bubbly have a little sparkle too? Rim glasses with edible glitter or sprinkles for a little extra dazzle.
Garnish outside the box. Champagne and strawberries go together like peanut butter and jelly -- but don't be afraid to think outside the box and experiment with other fruity garnishes. Try thin slices of figs to top your champagne cocktail.
