Post Birthday Post… If you had a chance to read my birthday girl wishes post you already know I did a Roaring Twenties, Gatsby themed party.  It was  a blast!  I wanted to share with you some of the party inspirations. 1.

Well, it’s New Year’s Eve… When the clock strikes 12 at midnight, the ball will drop, the confetti will fall, the Champagne corks will pop, toasts will be made, the fireworks will soar fast, light up the sky, burn out and fade away into the night, and resolutions will be made.

Uncorked: DIY Wine Cork Art Project

When the last bottle of wine or Champagne was been finished off, and all that is left are the remains of a legendary soiree or spectacular birthday party, one can always find a creative way to be eco friendly.  Perhaps even throw an eco art project after-party… Save up all  your Wine/Champagne corks for a rainy day project or a day you feel inspired to take on some DIY Eco Art Projects.  I have come up with 2 ways that corks can be repurposed into functional, eco friendly items.  The wine corks used for these art projects were saved up over time. How to be an Eco Friendly Wine or Champagne Connoisseur – Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle your Bottles and Corks 1. Repurposed Champagne Cork Name Holder. A simple eco friendly touch you can add to your eco party/event is to repurpose corks into name holders, or to identify yummy treats or refreshing drinks.
