Glitz Spritzer Cocktail Party! {Recipe + Free Printables!}

Glitz Spritzer Cocktail Party! {Recipe + Free Printables!}

If you’ve seen some of the parties I’ve styled before, it’s probably no surprise that I love a little sparkle, a dash of citrus, and a great signature drink! So when BACARDI® Mixers offered to have their mixologists create a personalized signature drink for me recently, how could I not accept, right!? ;)

They sent over some questions regarding taste and party style, and said they’d develop the drink recipe based on my answers. I really didn’t know what to expect at that point, but ended up LOVING the drink recipe they sent over, right down to it’s name: the “Glitz Spritzer“! It’s fruity, refreshing, and easy to whip up for a crowd.

Pink & Gold Cocktail Party

Now it was my turn to do the creating, so I dreamed up a playful little after-work cocktail party for the girls at HWTM, designed to match this fun new signature drink from BACARDI® Mixers! Inspired by the bright pink hue, fruit flavors and sparkling bubbles in the recipe, I decided to go for a look that was glitzy & pink with a citrus splash… perfect for a everything from a girlie birthday celebration to a casual summer get-together with friends. Glitz Spritzers with festive drink flags, a few pieces of sparkly decor, and simple appetizers were all that I needed for this fun & easy party. I’m already planning to use this theme again for a party next month!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gold glittered box centerpiece with pink peonies, orange daisies, and lemons
– “Let’s Toast” and “Cheers to Glitz” Party Flags + Drink Menu & Favor Tags (download them below!)
– Muddler party favors, gold party tassel garland and playful pink stripe cocktail napkins

Hi. I’m looking for silver glitter paint (like the gold one used). What would you recommend?

I actually used mod podge + craft glitter for the lemons and vases, and spray adhesive + glitter was used for the box. Haven’t tried glittered paint myself, but using real glitter + adhesive definitely gives you lots of sparkle! :)

LOVE ALL THE DECORATIONS, WHERE DID U GET THE BOXES FOR THE CENTERPIECES?

Reply April 18, 2014 at 9:11 am

jenn s. SAYS:

Thank you! We actually made the centerpiece boxes by covering unfinished wooden boxes in gold glitter :) You could also accomplish this with sturdy shoe boxes, but here’s a link to the wooden ones we used: http://www.jamaligarden.com/productdetail/22296/50/natural-pots/wood-boxes.php

(As a DIY side note – I’ve found that the easiest way to cover something in glitter is with spray adhesive.)

Hope this helps! :)
