Anything But A Cup Party Ideas – Disclaimer
Before we share ‘Anything But A Cup Party Ideas’, here’s a much-needed disclaimer. You should only consume food and beverages in fixtures that were intended to hold them. Non-cups occasionally include paints or chemicals that aren’t acceptable for consumption. The non-cups you use should not be filled with hot liquids, and before using them, wash the drinking container well with soap and water.
Anything But A Cup Party Ideas
Finally, let’s talk about some Anything But A Cup party ideas. You could have a wine and cheese party with guests sipping from cheese graters or have a tropical-themed party with drinks served in coconuts. Get nostalgic with a juice box-themed party, or classy with drinks served in martini glasses made of ice. The possibilities are endless. Here are some enjoyable (and humorous) options that you can find in your home or either purchase online to hold beverages. We tried to offer you as many original suggestions as we could. Here are 50 items to get you going. Some of them possibly already exist in your home!
Anything But A Cup Party Ideas
1. Coconut cup
These are the instruments that make it so much simpler to turn a coconut into a cup. Just a store-bought coconut will do!
2. Mist bottle
At first, the novelty of spraying your drink of choice will be entertaining to demonstrate, but if you feel annoyed, it’s simple to remove the cap and continue drinking normally. It’s ideal!
3. Food container storage
You won’t have to worry about what kinds of chemicals might be there because you will at least know that these are already food safe. Because the spout and measure may also be used as a smaller cup, I appreciate this rice container.
One of the funniest anything-but-a-cup party ideas is Flask. A flask could be too simplistic, but it’s a fine alternative if you want something straightforward. You can even get quirky ones like a banana flask, which is sure to generate some chuckles.
Although they may be little, frisbees can hold a lot of liquid. Simply watch out not to tip!
6. Holder for plastic condiments
There are even lids, so you could mix up a variety of beverages and have them ready to go all night. Very practical and enjoyable to pour into your mouth.
7. Press, French!
Look at you at anything but a cup party, you’re so swanky! A French press makes a terrific cup for holding beverages and even features a convenient spout for serving drinks.
8. Planter of the T-Rex
This cup gains points for being great but loses them for being little. You may simply keep filling it up till you run out.
With this cup substitute, you’ll be the envy of all the kids (at heart). Since you won’t be seated at a table at the party, you’ll probably be moving around, which just serves to make it funnier.
10. Set it in Chemistry!
Beakers, flasks, and cylinders are all excellent for storing liquids in the laboratory, so it stands to reason that they would also safeguard your drink during a gathering.
11. Gravy boat
Now is your chance to fulfill a lifelong fantasy of upending a gravy boat straight into your mouth.
12. Viking beer horn
I can assure you that you will be the coolest person there. Even though it is impossible to put down, it has a string connected so you may fasten this drinking horn to your belt. Cheers to your mead!
13. Strong soaker
Consider choosing one with less pressure so that you don’t harm yourself when drinking. But aside from that, this could be the best cup substitute ever for an Anything But a Cup Party.
14. Water bottle backpack
Water, a box of wine, or whatever else you like to put in it… You see what I mean. Just bear in mind that the flavor will probably remain, so if you use one of these frequently, you might want to buy a second one specifically for the party.
This is another amusing notion that is already food safe and convenient for drinking from, but it is not intended to be used as a cup.
16. Alcohol helmet
Even though it’s not a cup, you can’t go wrong with one of these at any gathering. The traditional beer helmet will function, but I like this gladiator-style headgear.
17. Finding the cutest water bottle
A charming kids’ water bottle gets a pass even though it could be too close to a real cup because it’s absurd to use it for “grown-up” beverages. Additionally, this one includes stickers, so
18. Crystal skull
This is a decanter, but it also functions admirably as a non-cup drink container. And you can drink with confidence!
19. A rice cooker
How about that for a last-minute thought? Or perhaps you simply require a rice cooker and this is a fantastic justification to acquire one? Any way you look at it, it’s a totally absurd but surprisingly wise pick for an Anything But a Cup Party.
20. Infant bottle
When sipping from a baby bottle, there’s no need to be concerned about spilling your beverage! It’s surprising enough to be enjoyable while still being usable for drinking.
You can use any teapot, but it’s more entertaining if you go with something unusual. Vintage teapots are fantastic if you’re looking for unusual non-cup options.
22. Carafe of coffee
12 cups of coffee in the morning, followed by 12 cups of another beverage in the evening. It’s not a cup, yet it carries enough drinks for a whole evening (and then some.)
Even a lid is included to protect your drink! Although these are difficult to drink from when the lid is on, they are much easier to use than some of the other options on our list because they are soup mugs with handles.
24. Drink machine
Drink directly from the drink dispenser to cut out the middleman! Even better, you can make your favorite cocktail inside for a cup that (likely) will never become empty.
Anything But A Cup Party Ideas – Continued!
I don’t know why, but I imagine it would be a lot of joy to continuously fill up a tiny thimble and sip from it.
26. Lampa lava
You can omit to add the liquid by purchasing one of these lava lamp craft kits and placing your drink inside instead. Even the lid is there.
27. Special vase
Although choosing a cool vase as your anything other than a cup drink carrying option would make it incredibly unique, vases are a touch obvious. These with a retro feel are my favorites!
28. Cauldron mug
Although it is technically a mug, this party is for anything except a cup. Ideal for Harry Potter enthusiasts; perhaps some adult Butterbeer should be made to go with it?
This will spare you the trouble of having to consume a bottle of honey; although, if you happen to have one lying around, even better. It has a straw included and is adorable.
30. Sunscreen bottle
Although they resemble flasks, they are essentially just that—flasks!
31. Big scoop
There are several scoops listed here, but the largest one has a flat bottom and can hold 64 ounces, so you should be able to stand it up. If you had to keep filling up a smaller scoop every time you wanted a sip, that would also be amusing.
32. Sand pail
You can simply drink directly from the bucket or use the shovel to scoop up small swallows. It’s a hilarious “not a cup” in either case.
33. Candy dish
This could be simply filled with your favorite punch or cocktail recipe or a huge batch of mixed drinks. In addition, I believe it would make an excellent “cup” for rummy bears (or other alcohol-soaked gummies)
34. Container for protein powder
You undoubtedly have a few of these lying around if you go to the gym (or can save one for an upcoming party.) Because it stores a lot and is food safe, you won’t ever need to refill.
35. Blood bag
These are intended for drinks, making them the ideal option for a gathering without cups. They are simple to sip from and may be used to prepare a variety of various drinks to last you all night.
36. Oil jug
The only drawback is that the drink can be served a touch too slowly.
37. 4L Drink bag
This is a fantastic, low-cost alternative to bringing your alcohol to a cup party. A full night’s worth of drinks can fit within!
38. Old-fashioned milk bottles
If you clean and sanitize them first, you should be able to use them to drink from.
39. Fanny pack
Okay, so it’s designed to hold drinks, but it’s still a wonderfully clever alternative to a cup. It’s also hands-free for convenient partying!
40. Salad dish
Going big or staying home, right? Additionally, you can use these for serving and entertaining in the future, so it’s not a complete financial loss.
41. Turkey baster
With the turkey baster, suck up your preferred beverage before squeezing it right into your mouth. Yummy!
42. Drip pan for oil
Even better if you sip from it while drinking cola (or a cola mixed drink). even splash-resistant!
43. Puppy Bowl
Another one that can make people uncomfortable is this one, especially if your pals are aware that you have a dog at home. You might have trouble drinking from the sides, but you’ll behave well all night long, whether you’re a male, girl, or nonbinary person.
44. Soap dispenser
You can use a pack of two so that you can either prepare a second drink or bring one for a buddy.
45. Fish trough
Use a straw if you want to make it simpler to drink out of this because it would be amusing (and difficult) to try.
46. John Can
The option from this list will most likely confound, disgust, and alarmed your friends. Did you first clean it out? “Isn’t that risky?” “That’s repulsive!” Of course, just use a fresh one.
Ew, but also fantastic for making the other partygoers uncomfortable. Since it’s fresh and clean, why not?
48. Brick flask for a freezer
This is another flask concept, but I just had to include it because I think it’s so odd and different. It will appear as though you are chugging the liquid from those blue freezer packs, which is nasty.
49. Security cones
The smaller ones designed for children are a little bit easier to drink from. Or purchase enormous ones for an outrageous (not a) cup idea. Just make sure the top is shut because some have an open tip.
50. Anything but a cup party ideas – Crab shell
You can use anything as a cup if you’re bold enough.
So, grab your favorite drink, find a unique vessel, and get ready to have a blast at your Anything But A Cup party. Cheers to a night of fun and creative sipping!
