Today's Guest Chocoholic: Carolyn from homework!

I’m so happy to be here at The Answer is Chocolate while the Head Chocolatier and her family are vacationing.

Wine charms are a great way to cut down on the amount of glasses you use when hosting a gathering. At one time or another, everyone sets down their glass, forgets about it and gets a new glass. The glasses pile up which means more dishes for the hostess. You can buy wine charms almost anywhere or you can make your

Wine or water glass charms can be personalized with your guest’s name or you can use symbols or pictures on the charms. The trick is for your guests to remember which charm is theirs

For my wine charms, I decided to go with a deck of cards. I found clipart and printed out the face cards and aces. (There wasn’t a joker in the clip art – darn!) You can find the deck of cards clipart here. Be creative, you can use celebrity images, sports teams or fun names.

I used a small circle punch and added another gold circle for decoration. I twisted the wire around a pencil and then twisted the charm around the wine glass stem.

Then, let your guests decide if they’re the Queen of Hearts, King of Clubs or Ace of Diamonds. 

Thanks so much for having me over Carol. It’s been fun hanging out at The Answer is Chocolate today. 

Carol says: Thanks so much Carolyn! This would be fun for so many parties whether for "adult" beverages or not. I hope you'll go visit Carolyn who has some of the most simply elegant ideas on the blogosphere!
