Prosecco Party Ideas

Prosecco parties are great for entertaining friends or business associates, or a combination of the two. They're also great for open houses or receptions, both business and personal.

The average Prosecco party lasts 2 to 3 hours during which guests snack on a simple spread of food and imbibe on great Prosecco or Prosecco Cocktails while chatting with other guests. It's actually quite an easy event to plan and there are so many options available.

Party Decisions

A Prosecco party can be as simple or complex as you wish to make it. There are a few questions you should ask yourself to begin planning a party:

  • How many guests will be attending?
  • Is this a casual event for friends or a formal business networking event?
  • How much time and effort do I want to put into it?
  • Will there be a full bar or a limited Prosecco cocktail menu?
  • Will the party be indoor or outdoor? If outdoor, do I have a plan for inclimate weather?
  • What type of food will be served?
  • Is there a theme for the party?
  • Should guests be asked to bring anything?
  • How much money do I want to spend?

Planning the Snacks

A full course meal is not necessary for a prosecco party. Simple foods, such as prosecco cupcakes, delicious crostini. A few summer fruits including strawberries, raspberries and peaches, will impress your guests for sure. Even something as simple as a cheese, crackers and cut fruit platter is perfect for the casual party.

Planning the Drinks

You can also get really creative with such kind of parties – don’t just limit yourself to Prosecco.  Try comparing different types of sparkling wine.  Pick a country and taste different varietals from the region.  Or, pick a varietal and try different wines from different countries. The possibilities are endless.

Helpful Hints for a Great Party

Make sure you have all of the essential bar tools.

Send invitations early, but not too early, 2 to 3 weeks should be sufficient unless it's a busy time of year like November and December.

Have plenty of napkins, plates and glasses available.

Plan on 50-75% of invited guests to attend to estimate the number of drinks you'll be pouring and how many bottles you'll need.

Estimate 2 to 3 drinks per person.

Add a "WOW" factor. This could be a special prosecco cocktail drink, garnish, food dish, activity (such as prosecco pong game), some special decoration or whatever fits your party.
