Unique Wine Glasses Make Ladies Night

This past week, something unusual happened in my house. My middle daughter went with her Nana to Virginia; my youngest is spending a week with my oldest and my house was empty except for me, my husband and Allie.

Love My Hispanic Hard Working Man

So I quickly thought that there would be tons of date nights with hubby, boy was I wrong. I did have a date day but more to come on that. My husband worked his second job on Thursday night. Like most Latino men, he has an incredible work ethic always trying to strive to make things better for his family. But that typically leaves me lonely and missing him a lot.

So because he was working this past Thursday, I decided that I needed some girl time. Because most of the time women are the last people to take care of themselves. So with that in mind, Cupcakes and Conversation was born.

In preparing for this party, I know that I wanted to have a few things to snack on and to drink. But I also wanted the ladies to have something that they can remember the night by and know that someone is always in their corner. I came up with two fantastic ideas, one I will write about here and the other I will save for a little later.

Sutter Home Wine Glasses

Because one of the leading drinks would be Sutter Home Pink Moscato, ( a pink drink for ladies night, go figure.) I knew I wanted to create a one of a kind wine glass for the ladies to take home. I had several ideas running through my head but when I saw these lilies ( Fun Fact: Most Hispanics households have flower arrangements in it. And normally there are more than one.)  I knew I had my idea.

Lily wine glass

I cut the middle of the lily and then cut it so the lily could be open.

Then I grabbed a plain old wine glass.

Then with my hot glue gun, I hot glued each flower to a wine glass.

After that, I decided I wanted to create some chalkboard labels for each glass, so we didn’t confuse which drink was ours. I found some chalkboard tape that was on a roll, and I cut and made labels and applied them to glasses. When the ladies got there they were able to write their names on the glass.

I think they came out pretty amazing.

Now onto the conversation. I didn’t invite a lot of people because I wanted it to be an intimate session where we could feel free to share. The ladies that came did not know each other, but you would never know it by how quickly the conversation flowed.

Facetime Girls Night

We all had to laugh when my neighbor Mandy got a Facetime call from her granddaughter even though she had only been gone for about 20 minutes and she lives right down the road from me.

Sutter Home Pink Moscato

I made sure that I had a few different choices of beverages for all the girls, but we all gravitated to the Sutter Home Pink Moscato. We loved how fresh and crisp it tasted and how it taste even better than some of the more expensive wines that they had tasted. That is a huge compliment because my friend, Kathi is a total wine expert in my mind. I love it because just like how Hispanics are family oriented so is the Sutter Home Company. Plus it is my go-to wine for all the entertaining that we do during the summer.  I will have to say that the crisp cool flavor of the wine made us feel relaxed as we sipped and comfortably chatted. Not afraid to share problems and issues we were facing as well as listening to ways we can approach them in a different matter.

When looking for a wine, I not only base what I purchase on taste but also on how long have been around. Did you know that Sutter Home has been around for 65 years?  Plus they produce great taste wines at prices that even my pocketbook can afford.

gotta have friends

The ladies and I had an amazing time, and it was decided that we are going to try to get together at least once a month. And I know Sutter Home wines will be a part of our next event and I am already planning using ideas found on the Sutter Home Uncork the Moments site. Check it out here.

  1. Awesome ladies night! With some wonderful ladies! I really enjoyed this night! Thanks Melissa!?? U ?

  2. What a great idea for girl’s night! I had forgotten about Sutter Home! Thanks for reminding me just in time for summer. It looks like it ended up being a regular get together – like you mentioned mom is usually the last one to take time for herself, so good for you reminding us ALL to take time out!
