Wedding Week-Wine Time

I have been pretty surrounded by weddings recently.  I mean we had the Acorn Wedding, the McRosen Engagement, Chelsea Clinton's Wedding, My Own Anniversary, etc.  I decided to start focusing my Etsy shop more on wedding related things.  Recently I have been making a bunch of wine charms that I think would be great for wedding events.

At the last wedding I was in, the Groom sent the bride and bridesmaids a bottle of champagne.  (Although I missed the exact moment because I was working on my hairstyle).  I thought these would be great for just that occasion.  See they are blue.  Something blue......

The only thing that could have improved the plastic champagne flutes that Mo prepared for us for the Acorn bachelorette party, would have been these handy pink wine charms.  Bachelorette parties can get crazy.  You don't want to accidentally drink out of the wrong glass........


On the topic of wine.....For my own wedding I decided I wanted to make my bridesmaids and BFFs wine related gifts.  So I painted them wine glasses.  I had big dreams of making intricate designs on the glasses but dots ended up being about as intricate as I could get.  I just bought some glass paint at Michael's and followed the instructions.  They give you a special paint that you use to pre-paint the glasses so that the paint doesn't wash off.  I may have forgotten to use that on some of them.  Ooops.  Oh well, some of the dots are still on.  I've seen them at my friend's houses.
So what do you think of my wine related crafts?
And more importantly.......
Do you like Red Wine?
White Wine?
Champagne?
Arbor Mist?
Or just plain beer?

Oh and a side note-Although in my last post I said my sister makes fun of the questions at the end of my blogs, she is still a wonderful person.  A truly wonderful person.  The best.

I like Champagne!! I had arbor mist once at a nye party and thought it was awful! It could have just been that night though...

Those charms are adorable!

I saw those on your Etsy and I absolutely LOVE them. I have a set of charms for the bottom of my margarita glasses. :)

I love champagne. And white wine. Red wine gives me a headache. And I love beer.

And Mad Dog 20/20.

Just kidding about that last one.

I actually showed these wine glass charms to a friend and we are both big time in love. Great job! I love white wine the most. I definitely was a beer or wine girl (sort of looking forward to that first glass post-baby).

LOVE wine related crafts! We should use the charms for Jenni's batch night - we can all have red bull & vodka EXCEPT Jenni. Then she won't accidentally drink the wrong drink thx to the wine charms. And I think we should drink rb&v out of wine glasses b/c it will be totally awesome. Why not? And final answer, I like champagne, white wines, pinot noir, some meritages, ... Heck, I love chardonnay. Cheers!

Ha I will agree what to Mo said and not have red bull and vodka. that was a 1 time experience for me.

I am just recently getting into wine more. Right now I like Rieslings and we all know my past love of Arbor Mist. I have not had Arbor Mist since you and I decided it would be a great idea to play power hour with it...yeah not a good idea after all. I was getting too old for Arbor Mist anyway.

I will drink anything depending on its level of free-ness, including Arbor Mist when my step mother occasionally offers me a glass when i visit. I prefer amber beer, mostly buckshot. But for Jenni's bach I will be proud to partake in wine as long as it has a lovely wine charm. I have a school friend who will be getting a set as an engagement present.
