Mimosa Board

Good morning, friends! How awesome is this mimosa board? When I saw the original idea, posted by The Baker Mama (book link posted below), I knew I had to eventually host a girls day and serve this to them. What better way to celebrate Galentine's Day, right? I had a few of my lifelong girlfriends over, and we all indulged with excitement!

The serving tray used was purchased at Home Goods and had a high edge, which helps keep the champagne bottles safe. I used a cheaper brand of champagne (Andres, around ~$7) to mix with orange juice, ruby red or cran-raspberry juice. Mini bagels were served on an onion ring holder (space saver), with butter and cream cheese on the side. A variety of fruit lay throughout the board, and I used cookie cutters to fill candy, and yogurt covered raisins.

It's important to cut some of the fruit up small enough to place into the champagne glasses, or use small drink skewers, as shown for the blueberries. A blood orange makes a gorgeous addition with it's vibrant color.

After devouring the mimosas and bagels, we all headed to a cupcake and sparkling wine tasting event at a local winery. Sparkling Pointe is one of my favorite wineries out on the north fork, and they often hold very cool events like this! As a member, I am able to get reservations quickly and discounted prices! We all split a case of their carnaval rose - it is the best!

A fun day for sure, and looking forward to serving this mimosa board again for the next brunch gathering we have!
