Pinterest is full of gorgeous pictures, trendy cocktails and breathtaking deco.

But how to make a successful festive cocktail party like on Pinterest?

On October 25th, we had the opening night at Dream It Yourself. Our mission was big: organize a festive cocktail party like on Pinterest with 70 people.

The concept is simple, the guests are expected at 5pm in an enchanting setting to have a drink and bouchées in a cozy atmosphere.

We share our 3 secrets for a successful cocktail with you !

Secret n ° 1: The buffet

What a challenge to offer a quality buffet to your guests! On top of being beautiful, it must also be delicious and easy to eat.

Our buffet was divided in two spaces: a table with salty bouchées and a shelf with sweet things.

For the salty stuff, we had mini salty pies and a large cheese plate with figs and grapes.

  • cheese platter with figs and grapes

A beautiful plate of cheese yes, but not without the detail Pinterest that kills: their small labels to identify them!

  • the sweet shelf

-For the sweet food, we had a beautiful shelf filled with small bites and beautiful cakes.

  • colorfoul glasses

Colorful glasses add a punchy touch to your buffet! And no fear of breaking, they are plastic.

  • berry-flavored water

Much more funky than plain water, it’s just as good as beautiful!

We even give you our recipe:

1: Pour fresh water (or water with ice cubes) into 3/4 of the jar

2: Cut slices of lemons and limes and put them in the water

3: Add blackberries, raspberries and fresh mint then 2 cups of lemon juice to add taste

4: Refresh with frozen red berries

5: Let infuse and place in the freezer if possible

6: Enjoy!

  • The mason jars and the pink gold straws

We love them because they bring a vintage touch to our table and fit wonderfully with our flavored water.

  • soda made in Montreal

Bubbles yes but not just any, a Montreal product with taste! We put the bottles in a big vintage tray with ice and you’re all set !

Secret n°2 :The decoration

At Dream It Yourself, we are lucky to have a place with charm: wooden floor, brick walls and central canopy. However, we had to decorate it to make it magical!

  • the light garlands

They are in all our Pinterest boards, the light garlands have the gift to transform the atmosphere of your evenings! Whether outside or inside, they still have their effect. And on a brick wall, garlands bring out its charm! In addition, this magic effect will also appear on your pictures !

  • eucalyptus

At Dream It Yourself we love eucalyptus! In bouquet or a few branches on the table to decorate, it has the advantage of not getting tired and remains beautiful long enough.

  • the table floral composition

Flowers is our thing! Their power is amazing! More conventional in bouquet, we chose the floral composition deposited delicately on our buffet. To stay in the natural spirit, we replaced the traditional trays with pieces of wood.
