Grapefruit, peach, apricot!  The fresh fruit your caterer is providing  will be great as mix ins (maybe ask her if she can portion off small separate bowls for this purpose).  Maybe some sprigs of fresh mint as well!  And because, let’s be honest, you want to make it pretty for pictures, grab a few sticks of rock candy and some edible flowers!

All the above ideas are great! To make it pretty, you can make petal ice cubes for the ice bucket. My friend had this for the mimosa bar at her bridal shower and it was really pretty. Some pictures from Pinterest:

Can I be a bridesmaid? LOL

One of my bridesmaids did a mimosa bar for her bridal shower and I loved it, I’m a sucker for a good mimosa. She had about 8 girls in her party and kept it to like 3 juices and she actually had like 3 different champagnes! Which I kind of liked because champagne IS different and you can like some brands but not others.. just like wine. 

Also… provide straws! It’ll help keep any lipstick, lipstain, gloss, etc on instead of getting rubbed off on the rims of glasses!

All are great options! I will avocate for mango juice and get like one of those dole pineapple/orange/strawberry whatever mashup sound good. Those are always a huge hit at our mimosa bars! And I really like fresh berries to top it off with, as well as pineapple is a big hit as well. My favorite mimosa is with mango juice and some strawberries! It is tough to beat! And I agree with mulitple champagnes. Have a couple of dry, and a couple of sweet. We had Verdi as the sweet one, a prosecco and a nice dry brut! 

Also, can I come?!?! Your bridesmaids will love it!

This sounds amazing!! I once had a blood orange mimosa at a shower and it was life changing. It’s now my favorite!! PP have good suggestions too on other juices and berries to top off. Also, maybe a nice cold brew would be an option too?
