Lately I have been reading a great book, one that I would highly recommend, “Entertaining Simple” by Matthew Mead. In his book he not only gives a list of basic necessities for the at- home hostess but also recipes and party ideas for “every kind of gathering.” I found particularly useful the list of essential elements for parties. In this section he gives examples of different flatware, plates, and cups, etc, and information regarding how to store or display your collection. (Lots of inspiration for any party planner’s pantry!)
One piece from the list of essential elements that caught my eye was the non-traditional use of glass milk bottles. They can be used as glassware or even interesting centerpieces (LOTS OF OPTIONS!) You can find glass milk bottles online for purchase but that option didn’t fit in my budget. Instead, I figured out how to repurpose my glass Starbucks Frappuccino bottles into classy party décor and I wanted to share it with you all!
Here is how to make Glass Milk Bottles from Starbucks Frappuccino containers.
Bill of Materials:
Glass Starbucks Frappuccino Containers
Soap and Water
Nail Polish Remover
First: Empty the Starbucks Frappuccino containers (I drank mine!)
Second: Rinse them inside and out by letting them soak in hot water for a few minutes.
Third: Peel off Starbucks label (it might leave behind some sticky residue). Use a little elbow grease to scrub the sticky residue off the bottle with a wash cloth.
Fourth: Use nail polish remover to clean off any stubborn adhesive and the date from the bottle.
Now use as a cute way to serve drinks at your next party!
Ta-Da your very own milk bottles!
TIP: Keep the caps, you can decorate them and use them again!
Now go have fun using these awesome glassware are your next party!
