Whether you’re hosting your own special birthday party or one for your best friend, you want it to be a party that they remember for years. This is why you chose the Crystal Ballroom in Casselberry for your event venue. If you’re celebrating a 21st birthday or one for an older birthday boy or girl, you need to make a decision about serving drinks. The cost of an open bar can quickly spiral out of control. Here are a few suggestions to manage the costs and stay in budget.

Designer Cocktail

For a special birthday, you can provide a couple of drinks especially designed for the birthday boy or girl. It can feature their favorite flavors from fruits to chocolate. By offering a limited number of drinks, you can save a lot of money. When designing your friend’s birthday drinks, consider using only a single type of alcohol.

Wine Tasting

Why not enjoy an elegant wine tasting as part of a birthday celebration? You can find someone who knows a lot about wines and ask them to do a presentation. Although you’ll probably have a large variety of wines, the glasses that you offer to each guest will be smaller, saving you money on the overall cost.

Craft Beer

If you love the suds, then offering a variety of craft beers might be the way to go. Almost every town has a craft brewery so finding some great artisanal beer is easy. You can select a variety of beers from Indian pale ales to lagers. Some of these beers even have great names to put smiles on everyone’s faces.

At Crystal Ballroom, we offer an in-house bartending staff to make offering drinks easier. Call us today to learn more about this service.
