Bridal Shower Wine Basket

Last weekend I went to a bridal shower in Boston for my friend Alexis. I loved this wine basket of "Firsts" that she received and plan to put one together for an upcoming shower.
Custom wine labels read:
First Anniversary
First Fight
First Valentine's Day
First Baby
First Dinner Party
...and I can't remember the last but you get the point!

Here are a few variations that include poems. You may have been to a shower where the basket was given by the bridesmaids and each recited one to the bride.

This tutorial includes tag printables in a variety of colors.

Another how-to that includes printables and tips for putting your basket together.

This melamine beverage tub is filled with wine corks.

Kathy, Alexis (the bride), me and Meg at the shower. Alexis and her fiancé Dan will be married at Trinity Church in Copley Square this fall, can't wait!
