As I was looking through some of the bridal magazine Heather brought over I found a really neat section on wine wedding favors. How neat would it be to receive a wine wedding favor.
There are a variety of different options to choose from when it comes to wine wedding favors. You can offer wine stoppers in a shape that will compliment your theme. For example a star fish for a beach wedding or a snow flake for a winter wedding. I would love to see a double heart wine stopper myself.
Couples can give their guests personalized wine glasses The glasses can commemorate the special event with the names and date of the bridge and groom. Every time the glasses are used they will be reminded of the happy couple and the commitment they made.
Coasters are another option that can be elegant or simple. They come in both cork or glass and can add a touch of flair to your table depending on the design you choose. This option is also very functional and really who couldn’t use a nice set of coasters. These could make great gifts for people that elect not to drink wine or other alcoholic beverages.
There really is something for everyone when it comes to wine wedding favors. They also make great last minute additions to any wedding because there are so many flexible options.
My best friend Heather came over after work today to tell me something very exciting. She is getting married and wants me to be her maid of honor. I was thrilled and immediately said that we needed to start planning. I have always wanted to plan a wedding and now I have my chance. She told me that I could help her with anything and everything.
I’m starting with wedding invitations. Wedding invitations need to be sent out in a timely manner. This allows you to make accommodations for all of your guests. Wedding invitations usually include an RSVP card to inform the bride and groom who will be attending. Some RSVP cards even ask the names of the attendees, what meal option they are choosing and if they have any diet or allergy restrictions.
The wording of the invitation is all dependent upon they style of wedding and who is hosting the wedding. Look up wedding invitation wording etiquette to make sure you don’t make a mistake. Answer a few simple questions about who is hosting the wedding, where, when, how and you are good to go.
Finally, remember that the invitation you chose is usually the first impression your guests will have about the theme of your wedding. Make sure it relates to the vision you have for you wedding. It wouldn’t make sense to send out a beach wedding invitation to and indoor winter wedding. Your invitation can enhance the theme and help bring it to life so choose wisely.
Ladybug and I had a great Christmas. Now it’s time to clean up and organize all of the new toys she got for Christmas. I had planned on having her go through all of her toys before Christmas and choosing which toys she still played with and which toys she’d like to donate but we didn’t get the chance. So that’s what we did today, a toy purge to make room for new toys.
I helped Ladybug as we sifted through all of her toys and threw away broken toys and put toys that were perfectly fine but didn’t play with anymore in a big bag. We’ve been doing this every year. I don’t want her to be spoiled and I want her to understand that other people are not as fortunate as we are. She gladly donates her toys every year and before her birthday as well. Another great reason to do this is to avoid extra clutter. When something new comes into the house, something old must go out.
It took us a little over and hour and a half to go through everything and put all of her new toys away in their new places. We ended up tossing out a small bag of toys and had a nice big bag of toys to donate. Her room is nice and tidy again and every toy has a place to be. I fell great now that it’s done and am really going to work hard to make sure we do this before Christmas next year.
Two more days until Christmas. I can’t believe it’s almost here already. This year has gone by soo darn fast. This morning Ladybug and I decided to stay home and relax. We got up and watched Christmas cartoons and movies on Netflix and ate breakfast in our jammies. After breakfast I pulled out some arts and crafts supplies and we made wreaths.
The wreath base was made out of a paper plate. Ladybug painted the wreath green to look like leaves. Then she balled up red tissue paper and glued them on in clusters to look like holly berries. It was a pretty simple craft and it turned out great.
Ladybug asked for some ribbon so she could hang the wreath on her bedroom door. We hung it on her door knob instead of up high because I didn’t have anymore wreath hangers. It didn’t matter because she was still happy as long as it was on her door.
After we finished the wreath we cleaned up the mess and put the arts and crafts supplies away. I made us some yummy grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for lunch. It was the perfect lunch to a cold winters day. What a great Sunday morning.
I can’t believe Christmas is less than a week away. I want to take Ladybug out to see Christmas lights. I like to drive into big neighborhood communities and find the streets where everyone decorates their house and the whole street is illuminated. I know that there are a lot of New Homes Near Atlanta that might have lights. Maybe this weekend Ladybug and I will go for a long drive to see what’s around.
We see the lights in our neighborhood each night, but it’s fun to get away and see what else is out there. I know there are also a couple of places that organize light decorations on big fields. When I was a little girl I remember going through a big giant maze of lights as my dad drove us through big tunnels of lights. The sheer quantity of lights was absolutely amazing. There were even instructions for us to turn our radio to a certain station and that the twinkling of the light would coincide with the music that was being played.
I hope I can find some spectacular lights shows for us to enjoy this weekend. It really is one of our favorite holiday traditions just to go for a drive to see all of the Christmas lights. We always end the night of festivities with a big nice warm mug of hot cocoa and marshmallows. I can’t wait for the weekend to get here.
