Bridal Shower Wine Basket


I made this basket a while ago for a … well, she’s my aunt but younger than me because of the weird way my family members have married into other families.
Anyway… it was quite time consuming but a ton of fun to make! I used to be into scrapbooking so I had all of the material already. It makes me sad that so many things are digital now because I have so many cute things and no time or energy to make use of it 😦 I am
not even kidding when I say that I have a box and a $90 tote FULL of scrapbooking material, some un-opened, that’s probably worth hundreds of dollars. Why do you ask? Because I was obsessed with scrapbooking pre-baby and then I got knocked up….

You will need to purchase 6 bottles.
•red for first fight
•champagne/sparkling wine for wedding night
•rosé for first anniversary
•white for first christmas
•sparkling juice for first baby {or in my case, the bride was becoming a step mommy to her husbands little girl}
•another bottle of your choice to drink
while creating your masterpiece **mandatory**

There you have it!!

I got little heart & wedding charms for the stems of the wine glasses as well as filled them with pretty tissue paper & wedding ribbons. I found this pretty blue basket at the dollar store!
This gift was relatively inexpensive for me simply because I work at a fancy-shmancy restaurant and got a great deal on the bottles. I would imagine it would cost about $50 at the very least to do it at full price. This is a great gift for bridesmaids to chip in on together- each buy a bottle, each make a card, and have a fun girl night putting it all together!!!
Let me know if you can’t read the cards and I will write them out for you.
