My friend and I own a craft business called The Whimsical Cupboard. We make an assortment of kitchenware and vases (or pretty much anything if you want a special order). You can check out our products here!
To feed our latest habit, wine bottle vases, we threw a last minute Wine Night with about 10 ladies. Each person brought a bottle or two of their favorite wine or champagne. We had appetizers and goodies for people to snack on and a small mimosa bar. Since we hadn't planned it too far in advance, we had to use what we had on hand for decoration.
What We Had:
- Chocolate Melting Pot & chocolate
- Olive oil & balsamic vinegar
- 6-pack of mini plastic wine cups
- A three-cup serving bowl
- 4 crystal platters
- Endless adorable mini frames
- Orange juice
We kept the decorations simple with a few statements pieces to give the party a special feel. On the coffee table, we had two crystal platters with bread and the olive oil/balsamic vinegar dip. To be even more adorable, we made use of the mini plastic wine cups we had to display the dip. Note: this was adorable, but the balsamic vinegar fell to the stem of the cup so it wasn't a practical dip holder.
At the bar, we had a large bucket filled with ice to chill the opened bottles. Around that was the mimosa bar and chocolate melting pot. The berries were frozen and displayed in the three-cup serving bowl. These doubled as fancy ice cubes and flavor boosters.
Then we had strawberries and skewers on a platter next to the melting pot.
And of course, we had a couple of our new wine bottle vases on display. Aren't these to die for?!
