Brighten Up Your Cocktail Hour With These DIY Neon Coasters and Stirrers

With all the brights we’re seeing in weddings right now, it’s only right to accessorize your summer cocktails with punchy neon accents. Gather the supplies for neon coasters and frilly stirrers for a DIY bridal shower activity, or make a set of coasters to gift to your bridesmaids. For extra party flair, use neon ink to stamp happy-hour-worthy sayings onto cocktail napkins. (We love these ones from A Sensible Habit). Then cut up limes, watermelon and oranges, and freeze in ice-cube trays to make a colorful splash in your cocktail (may we suggest the Tequila Sunrise Punch?). See how to make these buzz-worthy projects for your soiree below!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
