If you’re hosting a Pink Party in October (or any time of year), chances are good that you’ll be serving up some pink drinks, so here are a few ideas for adding an extra splash of your signature color to the outside of your drink!

Adorning stemware & glasses with fun details like ribbon & rhinestones only takes a few extra minutes, but it really elevates signature drinks to the next level and adds such a fun element to the party.

The DIY Details:

Decorate cocktail glasses with festive embellishments like pink marabou boa, pink ribbon, and sparkly, hot pink pipe cleaners. Collins glasses also look great with a band of fabric ribbon around the base and a pretty pink straw.

Adhesive-backed craft rhinestones are great for adding a small dose of sparkle, or you can also use a more intricate rhinestone motif to make the guest of honor’s glass extra-special!

Ready-made stickers like the flower rhinestone pictured here are available at most craft and scrapbooking stores, and they have a clear backing that enables you to peel-and-stick them in one easy motion.

Pink chipboard letters are another quick & easy way to dress up stemware, and they come with the added bonus of doubling as a drink marker so that guests can keep track of their glass. Use a small jump ring or piece of wire to attach the letter to the stem. These letters look extra-fun when paired with pink marabou boa!

Question? Think this would be easy to do on plastic champagne and wine glasses. Just a thought for the lower budget events where glass drinkware is not available.

I hosted a spa party and made signature martini glasses with hot pink boa’s. It really added a nice touch to our signature spa cocktails and all glasses were personalized with a little letter bling. I made them party favors and you got to take them home!
