We are in one of those periods where we are on the receiving end of a lot of gifts. First the new baby and then our move, people have been kindly showering us with thoughtful gifts. In a few short weeks, we will enter what we call the birthday season in our house when Sweet J and Love Bug turn another year older only 20 days apart. I get really festive feeling during birthday season; celebrating my children’s birthdays makes me so happy. This time usually inspires me to think about gifts I can give to others too. Enter: confetti dipped champagne bottles. Champagne already has a correlation with celebration and dipped in confetti, the outside now conveys the party waiting on the inside.
There are so many things to celebrate! Babies, moves, graduations, birthdays – I can’t think of too many events when these confettied bottle would not be enthusiastically received. Getting through a Monday is reason enough to pop a cork. And as long as the recipient is over the legal drinking age, I think it works.
Maybe champagne isn’t your thing. Don’t fret. Apply this trick to any bottle you prefer. The options are endless.
-confetti – I purchased mine from this fun store
Using a foam or regular brush, add a coat of glue to the bottle.
Firmly press the confetti onto the glue. Shake off the excess and allow to dry. For thicker coverage, repeat the glue and confetti.
Add a tag and you’re set!
Dip a couple bottles to have on hand and don’t be surprised at the very ordinary things you find worthy of celebrating. :)
