Age gets better with Wine

My Moms Birthday.

We've never done anything super special for my moms birthday, so last year I decided to change that!
She deserved it, so what better way to celebrate than a wine & cupcake tasting?

I made a "V" out of corks.
 To make the wine cork letter, just buy a simple unfinished wood letter (got mine from hoblob),
since I threw my corks away I bought some on amazon really cheap. Then i hot glued them on the wood, super easy & a great gift for any wine lover!

Party Favors

 For the favors I made some chalk wine glasses, I used Dollar Tree glasses & dipped the bottoms into chalkboard paint. Used some matching ribbon to tie around the stem & found some wine charms for a $1 at Micheal's. I left some chalk out so we could write our names and keep track of our glasses.

Moms GIANT wine glass

 I had to get my mom the biggest glass for the party, hello shes the birthday girl after all. =)

 After mingling for a bit, we started the Wine & Cupcake tasting.

I bought these printable from Etsy.

We had 3 white wines & 3 red wines. I asked everyone to bring a new wine they had never tried. We ended up with A LOT of wine. Sa-weet!
To pick the wines for the tasting I went to Twin Liquors & asked a sweet lady who worked there. They were extremely helpful. Since I almost always sip Moscato, I was clueless.
I found a wine I liked that was a red & the after taste was chocolate. So yum!

Ho-kay, on to some sweets. I went over to my favorite bakery {HERE}. Ordered some mini cupcakes (to keep cost down I went with mini) we got Margarita, Red Velvet, and Chocolate Chip. They were amazing! My mom loves margaritas so I got that one more for her. My fav would probably be the chocolate chip.

Happy Birthday!

 We had everyone sign a bottle of wine for mom to always remember this bday, I added some matching flowers just to pretty it up a bit.

Mini Moscato Favors
After everyone was done I handed out mini moscato's and put the tags on with some curling ribbon. It says "Vikki is 44 & fabulous!" So cute, I loved the change in color too. I never use orange to decorate, it was actually very pretty. Sutter Homes moscato bottles were orange also, can you say perfect?!

The birthday girl  :)
I had a great time celebrating my moms bday, we even got her co workers and friends to my house to surprise her. Love that lady right there!
