This Valentine’s mimosa bar packs the huge wow factor, without being over the top to put together. A few key pieces and you’ve got a stunningly beautiful backdrop to your Valentine’s Day party.
Who doesn’t love a good Saturday or Sunday brunch? And what better way to Valentine’s (or Galantine’s) it up with friends than a good brunch that also includes a Valentine’s mimosa bar?
First off, mimosas are just fun. Say “We’re having mimosa” and pretty much anyone will get excited!
This mimosa bar wouldn’t be complete without the tissue paper garland behind it, so make sure to check that tutorial out here! The garland was so easy to assemble and would make a great, budget-friendly addition to any party. But today, it was the perfect stunner to go along with our mimosa bar.
It’s all in the details
You need just a few key pieces, some high-quality orange juice, champagne, some pops of pink and red, and the stage is set!

Valentine’s Mimosa Bar Musts:
- Champaign (find blush or pink if possible)
- Champaign ice bucket (this one is a great price!)
- Glass carafe for juices (this 4 pack is perfect)
- Assorted juices
- Glasses (These from Amazon are my absolute favorites!)
- Straws (not necessary but they sure are pretty)
- Other small cookies, treats, or brunch foods
My new favorite Amazon find.
I just can’t get over these pink glass vintage goblets! They come in so many colors and are heavy, beautiful, and durable. They are also a great price!
Tip from a wine and spirits vendor:
When purchasing champaign at our local supermarket, I asked the spirits manager (the one in charge of the alcohol section) which champaign was best for mimosas. He said to go with cheap champagne and a high-quality juice. He said the juice swallows up the flavor of the champaign, so using a good champaign would be a waste. Instead, he said used fresh-squeezed orange juice and high-quality juices in general, since that’s what your friends will be tasting. I thought that was a nice tip and a way to save a little extra on the mimosas and spend it where it counts, on the juice!
Try to keep the additional snacks and brunch items color themed so the table is as aesthetically pleasing as possible, while still being insanely yummy.
Who else is a complete sucker for the frosted animal crackers? It’s like my guilty pleasure. I could eat a whole bag to myself and only buy them once or twice a year.
Most everything used for this Valentine’s themed mimosa bar can be used for other parties as well, which is what I love about collecting new items like the goblet glasses and carafes, I’ll find so many other ways to use them throughout the year. Adding to my glass collection is always a goal of mine. 😉
Shop for your mimosa bar:
Have you made a mimosa bar before? What were some staples that you have to have?
I’m off to grab one of my goblet cups and drink my daily allotment of water from it. I seriously love those cups! Hey, it’s the little things in life, right?
Happy Mimosaing (is that a word? It is now 😉 )
