What is an "Anything But A Cup" party? 

Anything but a cup party is exactly how it sounds – no one is allowed to drink from cups! It’s the perfect way to add a touch of excitement and creativity to your next event. Whether you're hosting a birthday party, a backyard barbecue, or just looking for a fun way to spend time with friends, this type of party is sure to be a hit.

One of the best things about an "Anything But A Cup" party is that you can let your imagination run wild. From quirky sippers shaped like animals to elegant vases filled with fruit-infused water, the possibilities are endless. And with a little bit of preparation, you can create a drink station that's both functional and visually appealing.

Another great aspect of this type of party is that it encourages guests to mingle and try new things. Instead of just grabbing a drink and sitting down, guests will be interacting with each other and trying out different types of sippers and dispensers. It's a great way to add a bit of playfulness to your event and make it more memorable for everyone involved.

Don't worry, it's not rocket science. With a little bit of imagination and some careful planning, you'll be able to create a party that's both enjoyable and unforgettable.
