Customized Jones Soda Bottles…

with 7 comments

…Added Personalization & Pops Of Color To My Sister’s Bridal Shower!

Like the song by Counting Crows goes,Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones…believe in me, help me believe in anything, I want to be someone…who believes…yeah…”, Mr. Jones did help me believe – in drinking really good soda

Yes, Mr. Jones helped me believe in everything pink, orange, yummy and fabulous!  With customized Jones Soda bottles in Fufu Berry, Orange & Cream and Cream Soda for the guests, it was indeed a sweet, refreshing treat!

I love that Jones Soda allows you the option to customize your bottles.  It’s pretty simple – you just upload a photo, type in what you’d like the front of the label to say, then you type in what you’d like the back to say. 

For my sister’s bridal shower, we put, How sweet it is to be loved by you!” on the front, then the back of the label said, “It started with a kiss, so let us toast to this ~ sweet dreams and best wishes to the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs!  Brock & Lindsay 2009”.

Everyone was so excited to receive their own personalized bottle of Jones Soda, they had never seen anything like it!  I have to admit, they were pretty darn cool.  The pretty packaging definitely sold me at first, but the delicious taste is quite impressive too.  Everyone loved it!

I’m not normally a big “pop” drinker, but after the shower was over and the soda was gone, I ran to my local Super Target to pick up some more.  I had to stock some of that yummy stuff in my own fridge!  Of course, I also kept one of the customized bottles from the shower as a little keepsake after I drank it, so it’s now proudly displayed in our kitchen!  I know, I’m a sentimental pack rat.

Now my sister wants to get customized Jones Soda for her wedding!   Since the soda comes in a variety of different colors and flavors, I definitely plan on using it for future events too.  Yay! 

If you love Jones Soda as much as I do or perhaps have never even tried it, you’re in for a treat, my friends!  Just visit www.jonessoda.com to find store locations or to customize your own bottles for your shower, wedding or other event.  They even offer a Jones Soda Weddings page filled with inspiration!  Cheers and enjoy…I know you will!

More pictures and details from the bridal shower to come…stay tuned!

Bathing Beauties, Get Frosted!

…With Cupcake Bath Bomb Favors By Bubbles & Beauties!

This past weekend, my sister and I hosted a bridal shower for our little sister.  Now that it’s over, I can’t wait to start sharing all of the details with you! 

To begin my happy little week of show and tell, allow me to first share with you the super sweet shower favors…each guest received a  Cupcake Bath Bomb from Bubbles & Beauties!

Nikol Johnson, creator and founder of Bubbles & Beauties, is seriously just as sweet as her cupcakes!  She actually customized each one for us, in the bridal shower colors and also in my sister’s favorite Pink Sugar scent.  She really made them so special, I can’t thank her enough!

When we received our shipment of cupcake bath bombs, they smelled soooo good, but since they looked like actual real cupcakes, I wanted to eat one!  Fear not my fine feathered friends, I refrained from eating the favors.  I was so happy with the great quality though, not to mention the ingredients ~ including mango butter, almond oil, French clay and natural salts.  Yes, it sounded quite heavenly!

I knew I had a couple “regrets” as rsvp’s, so I was sneaky (ssshh) and took one of the favors into the tub with me, tried it and experienced my own soothing bath – which after all the planning, was definitely in order!  Aaahh yes…life was good.  Hey, a girl’s gotta pamper herself once in a while, right? 

These cupcake bath bombs were a huge hit at the shower.  Everyone loved them!  I’m very pleased we decided to give them out.  If you’re looking for bridal shower favors sure to impress, these definitely did the job.  Actually, I think these would also make luscious little bridesmaids gifts as well- or a great gift for any occasion, for that matter!

They come hand-made in several different colors and scents, all ready to spoil you!  A few of my personal favorites aside from the Pink Sugar include Fresh Lavender, Lime Cooler, Apple Mango, Chocolate Indulgence, Honey Almond, Strawberries & Champagne, Lemongrass & Sage and Coconut & Cream.  But they’re all so tempting!

Keep checking back, I’ll be posting more pictures and details from the bridal shower this week…yay!
