How To Host A Momosa Party

One thing you should know about me, is I love a good mimosa, or really any mimosa for that matter.  I love the sweet taste and hint of effervescence from the sparkling wine.  I also love sipping them from champagne flutes, cause what’s more fun than that!  I’ll make any occasion, into a reason to have mimosas and my kids heading back to school seems like the best reason I can think of right now.  Serving mimosas already elevates your get together from a coffee sipping playdate to an event and I’m here for that!  I’ll show you how to throw an easy, causal, stress free “mom-osa” gathering!

Where to Start 

  1. First things first, you need to gather your guest list and send out invites.  For my party, I found our class list and emailed the moms in the class.  No offense dads, but this party was just for moms and I stated that in my email.  Since this was a casual “pop in” event, I made sure to make that clear in my email.  If you are hosting a more formal event, you may consider using electronic evites (I personally like or create your own paper invite to send in the mail.  Do be sure to add a phone number and email for easy RSVP. The easier you make RSVPing, the more likely your guests will remember to do it.

Plan Decor 

  1.  My gathering was small and completely outdoors and I knew I wanted a simple tablescape that was easy to clean up.  I found this darling white scalloped tablecloth at Target that I knew would be perfect (linked below). I followed that up with a black and white gingham table runner that I had originally purchased from Goodwill.  Goodwill is my best tip for grabbing party decor on a budget.  When I saw this runner, I did not know what I’d use it for but I knew it had to go home with me. Similar one linked below.  Once I had a tablecloth and runner, I just needed some floral/greenery elements and some trays for serving.
  2. Serving Trays. I decided to use a mix of white serving trays including a white wood tray, a scalloped cake stand and a rectangle serving platter from my collection. My favorite platter is this one that I’ve had for years from Crate & Barrel (linked below)
  3. Add greenery and some floral elements.  I’m pretty boring when it comes to floral arrangements and greenery.  I have some hydrangea stems that I keep on hand for events. Fresh flowers are obviously a better choice but I bought these years ago for 80% at Micheal’s and they’ve been used over and over again (budget tip!). I throw them in simple jars (linked below) for a casual, farmhouse look. My greenery was borrowed from my entry way shelf, no need to buy anything new for this gathering.

Plan Food/Drink

  1. I usually keep food and drinks pretty simple at all my parties. For this, I had bagels with cream cheese and cookies. My girlfriends chipped in and offered to bring these items so it made it even easier.  I had crystal cut plastic plates and simple napkins available.
  2. Drinks are also simple, water, coffee and mimosas.  Because I was hosting a mommy group, I wanted to have sparkling water available in addition to tap water in case a mom chooses to have a non-alcoholic mimosa.  My advice on coffee is to grab a coffee tote from Panera Bread or Starbucks.  They give you everything you need including cups and sugar packets.  I had a small pitcher of creamer as well.

  1. Fresh squeeze orange juice is the best way to go.  You can squeeze your own, but honestly, who has time for that?  My nearby market, offers a variety of freshly squeezed juices for sale in the produce section so that’s the way I also go.  I also like to have a variety of juices on hand for different tastes and for combing  ( I love orange juice with a splash of pomegranate!). The night before, I poured the juices from plastic containers into glass bottles for serving.  I keep these on hand for so many uses
  2. Have fruit to add to the mimosas. I love raspberries, blueberries and strawberries (diced into small pieces).  I wash and fully dry my fruit the night before and store in the glass containers that I will serve the fruit from (easy hack!).
  3. Choosing a sparkling wine.  I usually pick a Proseco that is around $15/bottle.  One bottle typically makes about 8-10 mimosas.
  4. Grab the perfect champange flutes.  Since this was an outdoor/casual event, I choose disposable flutes. You can grab a 12 pack here
  5. Set out a framed printable letting your guests know how to build the perfect mimosa 🙂

Sit back, enjoy your guests and sip the perfect mimosa!

You can easily prep your decor and most of your food/drink the night before, taking the stress off the morning, especially, if hosting on the first day of school! All I did the morning off was finish setting my table.  I filled an ice bucket with ice for my sparkling wine, set out my juices, fruit and champagne flutes.  I set out my plates, napkins and other serving ware.  I filled a glass pitcher with water and grabbed a tote of coffee on the way to school.


Hope you enjoyed this guide and that it helps you the next time you need to host a causal, daytime, gathering.
