DIY Drink Charms for the Busy Girl

While we were planning the birthday brunch for my mom we all but immediately decided to use as many vintage elements in the tablescape as possible. I shopped our party pantry because I knew I had plenty of china patterns to choose from. Unbeknownst to my sisters, we settled on a pattern that my mom had actually helped to pick out a few years earlier.

All of the elements of the tablescape came together fairly easily but there was one small detail that gave us a little bit of trouble. We had to figure out how to delineate the glasses the kids were using from the glasses the adults would be using while at the same time all using the same style of glasses.

We didn’t want there to be any drink mix ups (think sparking grace juice vs champagne) so we decided to make monogramed drink charms. They couldn’t have been easier to make with each drink charm taking mere minutes to make. Here’s a look at how you can make your own DIY Drink Charms too…

Once you have the charm rings designed the way you want them, carefully place each ring onto a separate drinking glass.

No playing the hardest part of this simple project is deciding what colors, finishes and charms you want to use.

While these easy drink charms served a purpose, they also helped to customize each place setting and set the tone for every person attending the brunch.

I’ve always heard people say, “the devil is in the details.” Although that may be true for some situations over the course of the past few years I’ve decided that “love is in the details,” because it takes effort, time and thoughtful planning to take a simple supper or a birthday brunch from ordinary to extraordinary.

See you guys back here tomorrow. It’s been an amazing week filled with lots of love, laughter and celebrations. I’ll share a behind the scenes look at them all. Until then, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Many blessings,

      ha ha I was wondering if you guys would recognize the crown or not. Every time I watch the series Victoria and she has that gorgeous crown on I think about you guys. I love that thing! Hugs, CoCo

      I found these at Hobby Lobby but you can probably find them at any place that sells beads or jewelry making craft supplies. I’ll also add some links to this post to help you out as well, Bonnie. Hugs, CoCo
