Recently, I received an “End of Season” Ballard Designs catalog in the mail. Excuse me, but would someone please tell Ballard Designs to not rush my summer. It’s just mid July and here in the south summer lasts at least until the end of September, sometimes well into October.
Max and I curled up in the green and white chair here in the office and had fun oohing and ahhing from one page to the next. So many pretties! These caught my eye. In the catalog, they are called “Southern Living Beverage Tags.” The little blurb inside the catalog says Ballard Designs has “teamed up with the entertaining experts at Southern Living to create an exclusive new line of serving accessories designed to serve up classic Southern style with an extra helping of can-do-versatility.” The beverage tags pictured below (next 2 photos are from Ballard Designs online) are part of their new line of serving accessories.
The tags were $15 in the catalog for a set of six. I filed this little project away in my head, making a mental note to look for some small wood tags next time I was in Michaels.
Recently, I purchased these Chocolate Fudge bars. After eating one, a little light bulb went off. The wood stick inside the icecream looked like it just might work for beverage tags. So, for you, I sacrificed and forced myself to eat several more. The research that ensued was extensive, requiring the purchase of at least one more box, but I persevered for your sake.
I made several beverage tags and couldn’t resist giving one of the tags a touch of Halloween, just to see how they might look with a bit of added whimsy.
I’ve split this post into two pages to keep it from being too long. You’ll find the details for creating your beverage tags on page 2 here: Make Your Own Beverage Tags Tutorial.
