Evian Couture Water Bottle

My fantastic find today and you won't believe where.... Big Lots! (and only $1) I rarely go in there but today on my lunch break I stopped in to come across this beautiful Evian water bottle. First thing that came to mind is how perfect this would be as the favors for the Bridal shower I am having and for my table decor for the baby shower I am also hosting (in a couple months). Decorate it with some ribbon with my theme colors and Presto!!

Who says water can’t be fashionable? Celebrated clothing designer Christian Lacroix has officially made his foray into consumer goods with the chic limited edition Christian Lacroix Evian Water Bottle.

These stunning 750 ml glass bottles mark the first time that Evian has brought in a famous designer to helm the project of their yearly limited edition bottle. They come painted in a beautiful couture white coppice pattern with an adorning ‘Christian Lacroix’ on the bottle itself .
There is absolutely nothing plastic about this bottle, and the quality is as good as it gets! It even opens with a traditional bottle opener, thoughtful of its true lavish nature.

Now a few words by Mr. CL himself: : “It seems that Evian natural spring water has been there all my life. I remember the curly label of my childhood (were they arabesques, elaborate columns?) in the hotels of the lake where our family used to spend holidays. They came the streamlined graphics, like a futuristic and timeless dress of the Sixties, and the small bottles you could find all over the world, the design bottles, collected every winter of that millennium. Life a foretelling. It is therefor an amused and rather proud old friend that I designed these bottles. Draping one with the flowers of success, those that adorn the ‘paseo’ parade capes, like snowy crystal garlands or frost-frozen alpine flowers. Giving the other the silhouette of a princess, a goddess or a mythical creature, a sort of snow fairy in couture garb, crowned with flowers, bejewelled with crystals, “wearing” the familiar range of jagged peaks and ridges, like the flounces of a crinoline.”
What a perfect water for any sort of event.... conferences, weddings, showers, engagements, or any other special or commemorative event.
Once the showers come around I will share the pictures of my successful and creative event!

Penis Cupcakes

One of my really good friends Heather had her Bachelorette party and I was in charge of the dessert. I had a penis cakepan for a cake but misplaced it and had to change my plans.....

Think... think... so I figured what could I do with cupcakes? They are easy to transport and each bachelorette diva can get one all to herself?! I went to the grocery store and looked for shapes to make a penis for my cupcake topping. I found the "100 calorie" (perfect for those dieting divas) in a pack of nutty peanut shaped cookies and the cinnamon swirl cookies. They were perfect to shape an outline for a penis! Then... I got the black chocolate sprinkles to finish off my masterpiece!

Tell me what you think of my new Penis Cupcake creation!

Cupcake Liners

I found these super fancy cupcake liners today from Paper Orchid.
These would be beautiful for a elegant bridal shower, wedding or birthday.
I have fallen in love with these!
