A glitzy XO bottle


A-glitzy-XO-bottle

After emptying the contents of a bottle of Martell XO brandy into 2 fruitcakes (my most expensive cakes to date..*winks*), I was left with a really lovely glass bottle which you know, I just HAD to decorate. :)


I went with the lace, pearls and blooms combination. 

Then I decided that it would be perfect as a decor piece for my grandaunt's 90th birthday celebrations.


So I went to get these paper mache numbers and a can of gold spray paint (the fastest way to cover anything fast!). Once that was dry, I went in with my fave Golden large gold mica flakes to up to glitz factor. That was of course, before I found out from the art store that Golden has decided to discontinue this product! *sad music plays in the background*


Here is my sister holding the glitzy XO bottle like some beauty pageant contestant who just won the Miss Congeniality prize *LOL*.

I love everything about this! 1990 is my graduation year (and our high school color was gold), so to me, your sister looks less like Miss Congeniality and more like the graduate whose parents got her the most amazing graduation cake topper ever.

Miss Congeniality, HaHaHA!
But seriously, your decor piece is uhhmazing, Yvonne! So glamorous and festive. I bet your grandaunt felt like the belle of the ball with this!
