What's Your Wine's Profile?

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

In my last post, I mentioned that I was hosting the next Winey Women meeting and that I had a special “social” theme.

I can now reveal that my theme was…WINEBOOK!

Each club meeting, we each discuss the PROFILE of the wine that we bring, so I had an idea to create Facebook-profile-like boards where each member could fill out information about their wine.

For this night, I asked everyone to bring a wine that was someone’s first and last name. At the party, each women went through the wine’s name, origin, bottle date and most importantly alcohol content!

During the party, we used LIKE fingers to rate our wines. At the end of the night, I handed out LIKE stickers and the wine with the most thumbs up won a prize.

After almost 20 bottles of wine, we then held a little dance party with bedazzled wooden spoons Shot of Mom made for us to use a faux microphones!

Here’s how I pulled off the Winebook party details.

Wine Book Boards
·         You can print the document below on 8x10 paper
o   Note that the “Wine From” area is for the name of the person that brought the wine
·         Then, if you take it to Staples of FedEx Office, they will print a large poster (18x24) in black and white for under $3.00 each! Color costs about $21.99 each. My Wine Club didn’t mind that I skimped for them ; )
·         I then taped each paper to a corkboard while we wrote, but if you have flat walls, that could certainly work. Just make sure that the Sharpie doesn’t leak through the paper on to your wall.

Like Stickers
·         I printed the Like symbols on sticker paper for people to “like” a wine at the end of the night

Like Sticks
·         To make the sticks, I bought blue and white foam paper and sticks
·         I think printed out a large Like symbol and used it as a template to cut the blue part
·         Then, I cut out the white part and hot glued it to the blue. Finally, I glued the symbols to the stick so that they could be flipped to like and not like a wine

Oh and please don't suck Zuckerberg on me for trademark infringements. This was all in good fun!
