I’m a wine drinker. The occasional sparkling-wine drinker. I’d be a champagne drinker if I could afford to buy it all the time, but since I can’t, I’ll settle for the still stuff.

Jack, on the other hand, is a whisky drinker. A tiny bit annoying, because I hate whisky. He will drink my wine and I will not touch any of his stash. Must keep reminding myself that this is better for my waistline.
As this wedding represents both of us, we decided to allow him the honour of naming our tables, and he had the ever so grand idea of naming them after his favourite single malts. Not because it adds a bit of his personality into the wedding, oh no, but because that means he has to finish more bottles before our wedding. You see—to display the names of our tables, we shall be putting flowers in the empty bottles and using them in our centrepieces.
I thought it was a great idea. There is no way he’ll drink 10–13 bottles of whisky before September, but luckily we have other whisky drinkers in the family and they are more than happy to donate their empty bottles to our collection.
We bought a little bouquet of flowers and popped a rose in a bottle to see what it would look like.
Success! It’s cute, don’t you think?? Of course this now means that we can only buy whisky that is in a cute bottle.
So far the Cardhu and Monkey Shoulder bottles are the prettiest—check out the Monkeys!

Did anyone else do something that reflected their personalities in their centrepieces? Was it a joint thing or just one of you?
