Oh So Fancy! Dress up that Bubbly!

by

You don’t need an excuse to drink champagne, but no celebration is complete without a bit of bubbly!  Once you hear the cork pop, the party has officially started!  But sometimes a plain bottle of bubbles isn’t quite enough.  Sometimes we need a little extra bling to match the mood.  Here are some fun and simple ways you can dress up a simple bottle of champagne, to make it as fancy as the guests at your event.

First we have a pretty in pink champagne.  These mini split bottles can be used as at the beverage bar or the favor table.  A lovely bow and this custom label give champagne all the personality it needs to stand apart from those other boring beverages.

Next, we ditched the bow tie and swapped it out for a simple glittery ribbon and cute paper straw.  This custom label fits the beauty bill, and the straw does all the dirty work- without messing up your lipstick!

If that last option didn’t have enough sparkle, then this is the fancy bottle for you!  A bit of glue and glitter will give all the shimmer and pop you need at your beverage bar.  You can use a foam brush and liquid glue if you want your custom label to show, or use spray adhesive to cover the entire base of the bottle quickly.  There is a fantastic tutorial here.  Another option is to paint your bottle first and then just add glitter to the neck and pair with a pretty label like the one seen here.  The image uses a wine bottle, but this could easily translate to a champagne bottle.

 

If all the glitter has you feeling too girly, here’s a fun fact to make it masculine: James Bond is a notable Champagne drinker, who has been spotted drinking Champagne more than 35 times in his films. At least he drinks it more than any other beverage!  So man up, buttercup and fill that champagne flute to the tippy top.

Donut Mind if I Do

by

It’s here!  The holiday you’ve been waiting for: National Donut Day!  These round sweeties aren’t limited to breakfast anymore, in fact they’re the star of the show! So we’re celebrating our love of donuts with our favorite ways to package them for your guests.  The key to a beautifully packaged sweet is making sure your eyes are as happy as your taste buds.  That means simple wrapping, a ribbon and a custom label will be all you need to get the job done!

First up, we have this adorable DIY donut box.  Made from a fairly simple template like the one found here.  This box takes a bit of time,  but makes up for it with impact.  Add a custom label, like this one, and you have a perfectly precious party favor!

In this next favor, we used a similar donut label, but drastically simplified the packaging.  A basic glassine pastry bag isn’t only easy on your DIY skills, it’s also easy on the wallet.  At about $2 for 25 bags (find them here for  your next event) the price is hard to beat!

If you want to make it even easier, you can purchase these party sacks here in the same purchase as your favor labels.  Add a little shredded filler, bakers twine and this hang tag (more colors available in store) for your label and a few donuts on top and you’re good to go!

In this set-up we swapped the circle label and bag for a milk jar wrapped in a water bottle label (which fits perfectly!) and simple straw flag.  This is my kind of grab-and-go snack!  Find these water labels here to complete your next sweets festivity.  Don’t forget the paper straws!Milk and Donut Favor

If you don’t want your beautiful sweets hiding in a bag or box, this is a great option: a cellophane bag with a ribbon and pretty label.

Lastly, you happen to run out of donuts all together, this unique favor will send your guests away ready to sprinkle their next sweet endeavor with fun.

Guide to Hosting The Perfect Gender Neutral Baby Shower

by

Your best friend calls you to announce that she’s pregnant. You excitedly congratulate her and tell her what a great mother she’ll be. Then she delivers the news: she doesn’t want to find out the baby’s gender until the little one is born. You immediately think of the baby shower you’re going to be throwing in a few months. How will you plan the shower of the year without knowing the gender?

Today, it is not uncommon to find yourself faced with planning a gender-neutral baby shower. Some parents want the thrilling surprise of finding out the gender at birth. Other parents might instead want the fun of a gender-reveal party. Others still might be expecting both a boy and a girl. Twins! And some parents might just want to get away from the gender-focus and instead have a party that’s perfect for a baby boy or girl.

Planning a gender-neutral party doesn’t have to mean cramping your creative style and it certainly does not have to be boring. There are plenty of great ways to make your baby shower the event that’s talked about for years. Here are a few ideas to help you start brainstorming:

12 Baby Shower Games That Won’t Make You Cringe

by

Nothing elicits a groan quite like a baby shower invitation. The excitement of celebrating a new baby is worth showing up for. But we all know how awful those old standby baby shower games can be. The cringe-worthy mashed candy bar in a diaper game steers you away from your favorite Snickers bar for a week. So when it comes to throwing a classy baby shower, selecting the right games is crucial.

Thankfully, you don’t have to rush out to buy candy bars and diapers. (Unless you plan to keep them separate, that is.) There are plenty of fun games out there that will have your party attendees talking for weeks after. Here are a few selections to inspire your party planning.

Baby Shower Games

1. Ice Cube Baby

Set up: Before the shower, purchase those little plastic babies you can find at party stores. Then freeze them in an ice cube tray. As you hand out drinks for your guests, put one ice cube in each drink.

How to play: As guests are mingling and sharing excitement about the new baby, they may not be staring at their melting ice cube. The first person to notice that theirs has melted calls out “My water broke!” This game can get pretty silly, especially if it’s a guys and gals type of baby shower.
