My neighbors, Dave and Aubree, are getting hitched soon and the pre-matrimony festivities have begun. Aubree's bachlorette party was this past weekend and included a wine tasting at a local winery so a few neighborhood gals and I strayed from the typical racy panties gift and instead went in together on a wine gift basket.
Attached to each wine bottle was a tag and poem for their: wedding night, first fight, first dinner party, first Christmas, first anniversary, and first baby. Well technically the first baby tag was not attached to a wine bottle but rather a bottle of Colt 45 since Dave will be drinking that one on his own. The free printable poem tags are available here in a variety of color options.
After a little wine shopping, my crafting partner in crime, Angela and I picked up a cute basket from Target's Threshold brand, some shredded paper, ribbon, and shrink wrap. We arranged the bottles in the basket utilizing some cheap IKEA dish towels wrapped around the base to keep the bottles spaced and from clinking together. After stuffing in the shredded paper and slipping the printed tags on, we shrink wrapped the whole thing using a blow dryer. I love how professional the shrink wrap made it look.
All that hard work must have made us thirsty .... needless to say the wine tasting was a great time. Here's a shot of the neighborhood gals and I together with the bride-to-be.
