As Maid of Honor for my sister’s wedding, part of my responsibilities besides fielding frustrating phone calls about the perils of planning a wedding alongside my mother is the Bachelorette party.
However due to my distant proximity to Ohio, I was not able to actually plan yet alone attend the festival of singledome and penis’. So in an effort to extend my well wishes for an evening of strippers and shots of alcohol from plastic containers…oh wait I think we’re talking about my future bachelorette party here, let me rephrase that…an evening of wine tasting and fine dining with friends, I had to give a gift worthy of such a classy affair.
That means a pimp cup for the ages, obviously. Lil Jon would totally approve.
I got the original idea came to me whilst wining it with a bottle of syrah one evening, having dug out a 21st birthday gift – a large wine goblet with an elaborate puffy paint design on it. It was a great gift idea even though I rarely get any use out of it. But a mere wine glass and puffy paint were not going to suffice my grandiose vision for a pimp cup. No, this needed to be a alcohol chalice of epic proportions, literally.
I hit the craft store and scored this gem in the floral section…not sure why it was there but it was totally worth the 12 dollars. And speaking of gems, I also found a bag of rejected Mancala beads for a few bucks which won out over the more expensive rhinestones and beads.
Upon getting home I busted out my puffy paint menagerie and my trusty glue gun, fully loaded and got to work.
This pimp cup was certainly worthy of its Pimpstress. You can’t spell “pimp” without glue gun, true story.
