If you don’t have any pictures from past events try adding pictures of what you plan to do, people like pictures.

Have Your Own Signature Cocktails

Of course there will plenty of bubbly flowing but by having specialty cocktails  are a great way to make your party be distinguished from the rest. Have fun with it, have the cocktail names go along with your theme to enhance the theme. Make it unique and exciting but also be sure to make it practical. This also give you a chance to use some creativity and try out a bunch of different mixes and justifying it by saying you’re working. Regardless of the signature cocktail you feature  be sure to include an appropriate amount of wine, beer and of course champagne.
