WINE + FRIENDS + CREATIVITY… sounds like a pretty good combo, right? That’s why I’m so excited to share this generous giveaway from Arbor Mist with you today! It’s a fun, stylish, and creative way to celebrate the everyday occasion… and whoever wins is going to have a really good excuse to host a fun get-together!

This prize pack parallels the “Up for Anything” Brunch I recently hosted with Arbor Mist, which was inspired by two of its most popular wine with fruit flavors: White Pear Pinot Grigio and Blackberry Merlot. (See photos from the event here.) The prize contains several of the same elements used at the event so you can host your own celebration at home – including materials for the DIY “Garnish Your Glass” Decorating Activity!

We’re talking stylish serving dishes, cb2 wine glasses (24 of them!), Riedel stemless wine glasses, bud vases, wood vases, paper lanterns, high-quality crafting tools, rhinestone stickers & embellishments, fine glitter, and more! You’ll also receive printed versions of the stationery elements that I designed for this theme… including invitations, bottle labels, drink tags, vase wraps, thank you notes, and much more. (You can view all of the designs here.)

The giveaway is valued at over $450! Here’s a detailed list of everything that’s included:

Creative & Modern Wine Party Kit:

Neo Serving Tray by cb2
Square Appetizer Plates & Cocktail Forks by cb2 – service for 12
Arc Stemware by cb2 – 24 glasses

(Or if you’re already a fan of Arbot Mist – which of the 13 “wine with fruit” flavors is your favorite)? Post your answer in the comments section here and you’ll be entered to win!

    White Pear Pinot Grigio!

    This prize package immediately piqued my interest, brunch being a favored past time. Fresh off a “properly rowdy” southern-styled birthday affair (“She drinks whiskey from a tea cup” ( and in the process of planning “TOAST” (a brunch series to celebrate or toast to things we love) – this package would immediately be put to use.

    I do hope the fates align this time! Cheers!
