Serving Tray or Bar Cart

First you'll want to have a   Serving Tray. Not only will it make your job of serving your guests easier, it also makes for a better presentation. Another great option is a   Bar Cart. I have always wanted one and one of these days I'll make the investment or DIY my own.

Corkscrew

Does your bottle open easily on its own or will you need a  corkscrew? Don't make an assumption and miss that midnight toast. Trust me, I speak from experience!

Champagne Bottle Stopper

Don't let your bubbly go to waste. Invest in a champagne bottle stopper to save it for later. There are some pretty sophistication options on the market these days and they can even offer a vacuum seal.

Edible Glitter

It's not strictly necessary but it definitely does make your cocktail more special and more meaningful.  Edible glitter can easily be added to the rim of your glass by dipping the glass in shallow lemon juice, allowing any excess to drip off before dunking in the glitter. Allow to dry.
