    MOM-osa Bar

    This idea was featured on Dollarwise’s Instagram page yesterday and is a fantastic and creative idea to set up during breakfast or brunch. Spice up regular orange juice mimosas by trying different juices such as pineapple, grapefruit, and adding fresh fruit. Fill plastic or glass juice jugs with each type and lay them out on your table or counter. Additionally, lay out champagne flutes in a neat row beside the juice.

    Juice Labels
    Make pretty labels for each of the bottles of juice with construction paper and ribbon. Find printable labels at the link below.
