First and foremost I must shout out to the ladies that attended: (From the left: Yours truly, Loren (sister), Kristin (sister), Carrie (bff), Jen (bff) and the beautiful bride Janine)
Party Idea 1: Champagne. You can't go wrong with Champagne for a bachelorette party. I gave the bottles a personal touch by adding things like their wedding date 10.14.11, Mr & Mrs. Willis, Janine & Craig etc... Which can double as a keepsake if the bride so wishes.
First I scrubbed off the label of the wine bottles by soaking them in water and scrubbing with a brillo pad. Once dry, I carefully wrote with puff paint (any color) the words that I wanted. I let the puff paint dry and did another coat on top to make it extra "puffy".
After my little mishap, I took them out for a coat of chalkboard paint (I really love this stuff). For those that didn't pop, I wrapped the cork ( and metal protector ) with masking tape to protect it from paint.
TIP: After traveling down to Savannah, they got a little scuffed up which was disappointing. If I were to do this again I would sand the glass a bit to scuff up the surface so the paint has something to stick to.
This seemed like a long post so I'm going to break it up in a series. Keep posted for the second part of this series for more Bachelorette Party Ideas!
