Make sure your graduation party goes down in style. This DIY Graduation Beverage Bar is fun and unique, and it definitely has class.
Oftentimes, I just go super-simple with graduation parties and toss sodas into a bucket of ice and slap some food on a table. But, I'm going to show you how to throw your next graduation party with style, with an easy DIY Graduation Beverage Bar. The base for the beverage bar isn't much of a surprise – it's a long table! You can use any tablecloth you'd like, but I personally love the rustic look of burlap. You can create a long table runner or cover the table with burlap squares. I find this goes well with the next step…
What is unique about this table is that you use a stepladder to hold the beverages! Make sure your ladder has steps on both sides to hold up the boards. Putting everything together is really quite simple – allow me to show you.
Here's What You'll Need:
- Long table
- Burlap, enough to cover your table
- Stepladder (with steps on both sides)
- 2 boards or fence slats, 4 feet long
- Large galvanized bucket
- Variety of beverages
- Cover the long table with a tablecloth or burlap; then top the table with a balanced stepladder, right in the center of the table.
- Place fence slats or boards through the steps, using the steps on each side to hold up the board. I prefer a board wider than fence slats because it can hold more beverages. Repeat with the second step.
- Line up cold bottled beverages on the boards!
- Scatter the remaining beverages around the table, including some large beverage containers for ice water. Don't forget the cups!
- Place the large galvanized bucket on the ground below the table, full of ice and canned sodas and bottled water.
- Easy-peasy – and you've got a unique and cool beverage bar!
