Party Drink Ideas! Miner’s Brew
Time to put the finishing touches on your harvest party! With the Seven Dwarfs theme, we served none other than “Miner’s Brew." Mugs of Miner’s Brew for the kids are simply root beer floats. A scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with creamy root beer, to create this familiar froth, is all it takes. Presentation is the key!
We served the Miner’s Brew in beer mugs adorned with sweet, red polka dot tags. Then, we tied the tags to the mugs with coordinating ribbons. The brown of the root beer floats fits in perfectly with our brown and red color scheme, and vintage-looking striped paper straws are a must!
With the cool, but comfortable autumn air, the festivities were all held outside. As seating can often be a challenge at any party, we opted not to pull furniture from the far corners to seat our guests. Instead, we created rustic bar-like tables and used more of the red and white polka dot fabric to decorate them. Twigs filled with bright, red autumn leaves from the back yard became inexpensive and eye-catching centerpieces.
These charming tables were free! Yep, absolutely free for the asking, with exception of the hauling aspect! We do admit that they are a bit heavy. We visited an electrical supply company in town and were gifted with these perfectly rustic, dwarf- sized “bar tables”. The tables are simply the huge spools that hold electrical cord. Empty, and headed for the dump, we were happy to repurpose the spools, and the company was pleased to off-load them.
