Sangria Party + World Market Giveaway

By Kate Riley June 3, 2013

Hello everyone! I so appreciate your kind comments on Friday’s post about slowing down for summer, thank you! We entertained a crowd on Saturday and with a little help from some friends we had a really great time. Some friends helped with food, another with the Pandora playlist and speakers, my friend Heidi took pictures, and Matt and I played host and hostess at our house. It’s always nice when friends chip in to make a party a success! The theme was Summer Sangria and with some supplies from World Market, I set up a sangria bar and it was a big hit.

I cleaned off our potting bench we built last year and used it temporarily as a beverage station. Two apothecary jar dispensers held the sangria so guests could pour and add a spear of fruit.

I try to get everything done in advance when it comes to parties where we’re hosting a crowd, so I set up the bar a few hours before.

Just before the guests arrived, I mixed up two kinds of sangria, a white version and a red version, with equal parts wine and sparkling juice in two apothecary jar dispensers.

For those that don’t drink (or want to take a break from alcoholic beverages) we also provided carafes of sparkling soda in various flavors.

  1. What a lovely party! Oh how I would love to win a World Market gift card! Best wishes for a leisurely and meaningful summer, Kate!

  2. World Market? Oh you mean the Wine Store! :-) Earlier this Spring bought delightful over size canvas director’s chair covers at World Market. They get more comments than my entire new patio ensemble!

  3. So fresh and summery! I pick up so many great entertaining tips from your blog. :)

  4. I LOVE WORLD MARKET! I haven’t been in a while because there is not one near my house, but I’d make the special trip if I won!

  5. A gift card from World Market would come in handy. We are hosting a big party this weekend and I am still arranging everything in my head. We are bringing in “The Taco Man” who will make tacos to order. He is actually the cook at our favorite Mexican restaurant and they are doing the side too. I cheated and ordered cupcakes also. We are doing a wine tasting station and a beer tasting station. All I have to do is decorate and I’m using an easy beach theme so I didn’t have to go out and buy much.

  6. What a great party!! I love love World Market!! A great place to shop!

  7. I love World Market and this sangria party is right up my alley! Love it!

  8. Wow, my mouth is watering looking at those beautiful sangria decanters and fresh fruit skewers….wish I could have come to the party! :)

  9. World Market just reopened in my area so I’d love a gift card to go check it out!

  10. I’m closing on my apartment at the end of the week and throwing a Sangria party sounds like the perfect way to celebrate!

  11. What a fun party! I’m sure I’d have fun with a gift card to World Market. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. This looks like a fun, simple way to entertain while adding a little something extra. I love World Market!

  13. Sangria party sounds fabulous! I definitely need new stemware from World Market.

  14. I just switched into party planning mode for my son’s first birthday and had totally forgotten how awesome World Market is for party supplies! I will have to swing by soon.

  15. We are doing sangria at my engagement party in a few weeks. I love your make-your-own version! Thanks for the ideas as always!

  16. Love me some World Market! That table runner would make beautiful pillows or a brilliant accent to a plain throw.

    Enjoy more time with your kiddos. They grow up way too fast. Sniff.

  17. Oh, I am definitely stealing this party idea! My husband and I honeymooned in Spain, so sangria holds a special place in our hearts. I love the skewered fruit — what a cute way to add a little something special.

    The funny thing is that we just wandered into a World Market for the first time the other week. When we left, my husband said, “So I guess we’re going to be coming back here a lot, huh?” He knows me well!

  18. This is a great summer idea for our bunko party! All the ladies love sangria when I have made it…just never made the whole them sangria. Thanks for the idea!

  19. We just finished our basement and I’d love to get some decor items from World Market! Thanks for the great giveaway.

  20. I absolutely adore the products at World Market. You have given me a great idea to host a Sangria Party. Yummy! :-)

  21. I love the sangria bar idea! I have several recipes for it but not this one, easy and inexpensive. And I love the fruit skewers! Makes it easy to eat the fruit, rather than what I usually do and dig it out with my fingers!

  22. World Market is the best- I love how they label things- pretty enough to be part of the decor!

  23. Love, Love, Love World Market and Sangria for that matter! Our closet World Markey is 100 miles away and heading there this weekend, I can barely wait!!!

  24. Long time lurker – first time poster! I love World Market – it’s on my places to go to tomorrow when I have a free day – we’re out of Raspberry Singoalla Cookies and now that Ikea has stopped carrying them, World Market is the only place that has them. I also want to pick up a cushion for my adirondack chair – they’ve got so many great patterns to choose from!

  25. What a great looking bar! I would love to shop at World Market for a party. So much fun! Thanks for sharing.

  30. World Market is one of my favorites! I was just there on Saturday getting some outdoor string lights for the back porch! Lots more I would love to get.

  31. I love the beverage set up station. Sangria has always been my favorite summer entertaining drink, particularly white wine sangria with fresca and peaches. Nice touch with the fruit skewers and non-alcoholic options as well. I love the dispensers. The one I have (different type, bought from Williams-Sonoma years ago) drips horribly. It looks pretty but functionally useless.

  32. I love world market! You also reminded me how much I love sangria. I need to make a batch soon.

  33. Love the candle holder. Love world market, just wish it wasn’t and hour + away!

  40. Such a great idea for a party! I’ve found some really fun things at World Market—just bought my patio furniture there, actually!

  41. What a fun idea for a party! I love the drink dispensers and the drink carafes — so pretty and perfect for summer!

  42. I Love World Market – and your fruit skewers! Thanks for the chance to win!

  53. I absolutely love perusing the isles of WORLD MARKET! You can never walk out of that store without a great deal on something that you thought you didn’t need.

  101. I love world market! They have this one tufted grey chair that I would love to buy!

  102. Fabulous party idea. When the temps are over 100 like they are here in Phoenix right now, cranking up our outdoor misters and pooring some icy cold cocktails is an absolute must. World Market outdoor accompaniments– bright cushions, cool andoraks, funky glassware, sparkly linens, refreshing beverages– are a must-have!

  103. I love World Market! Their blood orange soda mixed with their house sangria is excellent too.

  104. I love pretty drink tables! Throwing a baby shower soon and I am thinking of doing a similar look.

    Thanks for the fabulous party inspiration!

  211. I love the idea of the carafes to decant the soda! And, the labels on the sodas are so pretty, having a shelf filled with the bottles could be art itself. All of the small elements you have assembled are so inviting! I hope you had a wonderful time.
    Where did you find the sodas?
