6 wine bottle stoppers

Our babysitter noticed how much I like wine (busted) and gave me three lady bottle stoppers for my last birthday. They make me smile every time I walk through our kitchen. Bottle stoppers make great gifts when going to a dinner party or wedding, and are also just sweet to have on your kitchen counter, chilling in a half-bottle of red.

Nine favorites, clockwise, above: Fish, anchor, piggie, lady, flower, bird. (And this thirsty bird is so cute, too!)

How cute are those?! I have an orange daisy one that I like but I think I might need more!
That "bottoms up" one is just too cute.

I had a vineyard wedding and made wine bottle stoppers as the favors... they turned out really well. Here they are:

This fun diver bottle stopper is one of my favorites, by a South African artist Carrol Boyes.

I love bottle stoppers but usually drink sparkling wine so once the bottle is opened it has to be finished that same nigh! oh well...

How do you purchase these? I'd love to buy the bird for my mom but I clicked the link and have NO idea how to buy one? Help!?

I loveeee the jasmine flower one... it might have something to do with my name? lol (Jazmin)

Amy Turman said...

Love these - I should pick some up myself. I am known to reuse corks, or even ball up some aluminum foil in desperate times. Then again, I hardly ever open a bottle of wine that my roommate and I don't finish that night! Shhh...

I think I'd be tempted to use one of these lovely whimsical things to stopper up the olive oil and sweet soy bottles sitting dumpily on my kitchen counter -- just think what a mood boost one of these would be...

Like wearing a magical Philip Treacy hat to a British wedding!

The Teacher said...

Now that I am no longer in college and actually own a bottle opener ( instead of just pushing the cork into the bottle- I know, I know) I should definitely invest in one of these. The anchor may be the winner.

These are absolutely stunning! Very timeless, classic, and chic. Such artistry and uniqueness in all of her designs. You could wear this beautiful work of art with several different outfits. Each time leaving you to feel "priceless".

funny comic:) Wine stoppers & a good bottle are spot on hostess gifts. These stoppers are fun but subtle!

stephanie said...

Um, I'm obsessed. I recently bought the most BORING wine stoppers imaginable after seeing these. I'm adding them to my birthday wish list! :)

Jaclyn said...

These are so fun and would look great on a table! That pig one is pretty adorable too.

I have beautiful Murano glass bottle stoppers (from Venice) - not expensive, either (maybe 10-15 Euro).
