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.

To make your party even more memorable, customize your desserts with personalized labels! Whether you choose to mark your candies with your graduating year or the name of your school, your guests will love the added personal touch.

Yearbook Party

Some schools still do the “most likely” awards in their yearbooks, but if your class didn’t get to partake, why not recreate a yearbook party theme? Place props around the house or venue and set up photo booths with polaroid cameras. Create signs for:

  • Most likely to become famous
  • Most likely to succeed
  • Most likely to win The Voice
  • Most likely to win an Oscar
  • Most athletic
  • Most likely to invent something
  • And more!

Good Luck

Graduating can be an exciting time but also a scary one. You and your classmates may be looking for some good luck wishes whether it’s for getting into their preferred college or landing their dream job. Host a “good luck” party with decor items that instill feelings of hope like rainbows, a pot of gold, horseshoes, shamrocks, and Lucky Charms cereal!

Movie Night

Looking for a low key graduation party theme? Gather your best classmates and host a movie and popcorn night. Hand out custom popcorn bags and watch graduation/prom-focused movies like The Graduate, Superbad, and Dazed and Confused.

Then & Now

Have your classmates changed their look since you first met? Host a then & now party and have everyone wear an outfit they would have worn 10 years ago. Gather up as many childhood pics of your friends and play guessing games to see who can be identified!

  • Anchors
  • Sailboats
  • Lifesavers (real and edible!)
  • Starfish
  • A photo booth complete with:
    • Pirate eye patches

Wine & Cheese

Maybe your classmates are a little more lowkey. Buy a variety of wines and put custom labels on them so no one knows the brand. Have your guests try and guess which types of wines they’re tasting. And don’t forget to pair them with cheese!

Share Your “Keys to Success”

Celebrate with your fellow classmates and their accomplishments by encouraging them to share their secrets to success. Set up a table with a bulletin board, keys, and tags for your guests to write down their tips. Carry the theme over to the rest of your decor with custom “keys to success” bottles and invitations.
