DIY Party

Customized Water Bottles

September 8, 2013

Yesterday I threw a party for my Mom’s 60th Birthday and it was a complete success!  I had 30 guests and have spent every day since arriving home from vacation preparing for it.  I am so pleased with the way it turned out!  I didn’t want to have a generic “60th” party so I incorporated old photographs of her in all of the decorations and tried to get creative.
My favorite was the customized water bottles.  I used a template that I downloaded here.  I opened the template in Word, dragged the pictures I wanted onto the template and resized them and added text.  You just have to play around with the pictures and wordings to customize it to your liking.

I printed out the templates on glossy photo paper and cut them out

I peeled off the wrapper of the bottled waters- I used Ice Mountain water that I got on sale at Jewel-Osco for $2.99 and the labels were a breeze to peel off.  I intended to buy Target’s brand water- Archer Farms as the bottles have more of a clean and simple look but the Ice Mountain worked out just fine!

I then took my label and wrapped it around the bottle

and used a thin piece of packing tape for the closure of the label

I pressed down and made sure that the label was secure and wouldn’t slide off

it turned out awesome!

Here are the completed water bottles

In other tutorials that I have read, I have seen people use packing tape around the entire label so it stays secure but my way worked just as well and was much easier.
I did not put these in ice because I was worried about the labels getting soggy and the ink bleeding so I instead kept them in the fridge until the guests arrived.
Now that I have made these and saw how simple they were, I plan on making them for any other parties that I have.  I am going to make them and 2 weeks for my nieces birthday party.  🙂
