Saying Thank You by a Pineapple made of Chocolates and Sparkling Wine!


A very sweet friend of mine recently graduated from college.  She worked so hard!  I wanted to give her a gift that said ‘Congrats!’ and ‘Good Luck!’

When I think of congrats, I think of bubbles and champagne.  When I think of good luck and blessings, I think of how the Pineapple is a symbol in houses for that:-)

I saw somewhere on Pinterest something like this project (I need to find my reference), and decided to do this project for my friend:-)

Here are my supplies, all found during a quick trip to my local Walmart:




 I first wrapped the bottle with green tissue paper, then slid that into a green bag and tied  it with twine.  That way when opening it, they bottle slides right out of the bag…NOTHING GLUED DIRECTLY ON THE BOTTLE.
I  used natural colored regular sized cupcake liners and took the Ferraro rocher and hot glued them together.  To get the best look, I ran the hot glue around the rim of the chocolate and bunched the cupcake liner to it.  I then hot glued the cupcake chocolates to the paper bag covered bottle. 


I just love how this turned out!  I’m actually secretly thinking of excuses to make more!  So much fun!

It’s nothing big, nothing expensive, but it is made with thoughtfulness and is fun and creative:-)

Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3

Hi! My name is Dominique and I’m lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home.

I’m actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job.

I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things…whether it’s figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
