No matter what time of year, something big is going on with someone you know: bachelorette party, engagement, new house, plain old dinner party, etc. And no one likes to show up empty handed. And a simple bottle of wine or champagne is great for any occasion. From previous posts, you can tell that I love a great theme. So why not show up with a tricked out bottle? Here a few ideas of how you can pimp out your wine or champagne bottle.
I know we may be a ways away from Christmas or Thanksgiving; but, it will be here before you know it. So, I simply cut the sleeve off a sweater that had a hole in it. This left a tube like shape. I then sewed straight across the line I had just cut. And finished it off with a knot at the top. You could change this to a different holiday by cutting the sleeve off a different shirt, maybe a sleeve from a button front shirt for Father’s day.
Housewarming or dinner party
Can you have to many cute aprons? Well, I guess you can but another really cute one won’t hurt. So, I wrapped the bottle in an adorable damask apron and tied it off with ribbon. After tying the bow, I then added the rubber spatula as an added gift. This will be a hit at the party and everyone will wonder where you came up with such a great idea. Don’t want to use an apron because it is too bulky? Try a holiday hand towel or something that will match their kitchen/bathroom décor.
A lot of people I know are getting engaged and what could be better than for the newly engaged couple that to pop a bottle of champagne? I found a bride shirt and wrapped that around the bottle and topped off with a inexpensive garter. A better gift?? Add two fun champagne flutes. Check out the second hand store they always have a variety for next to nothing.
This needed to be sexy. So, why not some thigh highs for the bride to keep. I carefully slide the bottle into one thigh high at a time and ruched it to get a nice dark black. I then wrapped it with a silky black ribbon and finished it off with pearls. This is something the bride can enjoy with her new husband!
