Real Party: A Bike Themed Cocktail Party

Real Party: A Bike Themed Cocktail Party

Recently I help a friend of mine throw a birthday cocktail party for her bike lovin’ beau. We decided to go the route of bike parts, old wine and beer bottles and a neat recycled-chic look. The color scheme was any and all metal and chrome colors.

The decor consisted of bike wheels, chain and gears. I made coasters and drink labels with the slogan, “Gear up and Drink.” We spray painted beer and wine bottles with black and silver paint and filled them with wildflowers. Framed pictures of bikes and bike signs decorated the walls and tables around the party.

The best part of the whole party was the food. The hostess made an array of vegan snacks including cupcakes, crostinis, Caesar salad, veggie plates and fruit plates. We served two signature drinks, beer and wine.

Feeling like throwing your own bicycle themed event? Feel free to use the following free printables.

The fonts can be found at The bike font is called “cycling“. The script is called, “commercial script“. The gear is from a font called, “Lombax.”

    Hi Jenni! I love your coasters and drink tags! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing the template! How did you make them? I don’t want to use tiles. Thanks again – I looked at your pinterest page and everything you do is awesome! You are very talented! Thanks for any help with the coasters! Barb

    • Jenni says:

      Barb, Thank you so much for your kind words. For this particular party I just used a heavy cardstock for the coasters. I knew I didn’t need them to be reusable. However, to make them reusable or more sturdy I’d suggest getting them laminated or maybe using a modpodge on cork to create a coaster. This Instructables tutorial is great:

      I hope that helps and I’d love to see what you do with the printables!

  • Yvette Lopez says:

    My fiances party is on October 11th. I would like perhaps maybe more pictures of the party you threw. I am more of a visual planner.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, Jenni for submitting more pics. I already have my wine and beer bottles saved up to use for decorations. I will be “biking” around my neighborhood to snap pics of bicycle signs. All your ideas are excellent! Thank you.
