Who doesn't want a Basket full of Wine?

Hi loves!
As I mention yesterday, my good friend's bridal shower was last weekend. For bridal showers,  I usually try to do a more "girly" gift. I like to incorporate something that is still on the Bride's registry, while adding a leeetle bit of fun to it!
A few months ago on Pinterest, I came across a Pin for a Wine Memories box and loved it! I mean, who doesn't like wine! When thinking of a unique gift for Steph, I suddenly remember that Pin and thought it would be perfect for her!
I searched around the interwebs to find the original post about the wine basket. After a few hours of creating my own labels and not loving them - I found the orignal blog source, and saw that she had a PDF with the labels.

Here is what you'll need:
I picked my wine based on labels and/or names!
Wedding Night: I wanted a really classy bottle and label.
First Fight: "Bitch" wine was appropriate, luckily she took the joke well
First Anniversary: Cupcake RedVelvet wine fit the bill
First Baby: I only had one choice of Cider, oh well!

I ran to HobLob and got a wicker basket, two ribbons spools (I chose champagne and leopard), brown filler paper and cellophane wrap to tie it all together. Printed out the labels, tagged the bottles and added her registry gift (Houdini Wine opener).
Bing, Bang, Boom

 ...and all wrapped together

I'm quite a fan!
