Hi, I’m thinking of using coca cola vintage glass (see picture) as favors for bridal shower, filled with chunks of watermelon and mint leaves, with a cute round tag on a toothpick on top of the watermelon-and-mint-pile saying something like “Take me home” on one side and “Thank you for coming to so-and-so’s shower” on the other side, and have some tan raffia tied around the glass.
So the glass will serve dual purposes: as dessert containers and favors to take home.
What do you think of this idea?? 😀 Please give me your honest feedback … Thank you! 🙂

Well, it’s a cute idea… but I honestly wouldn’t use it at home… as I prefer to have matching glasses and what-not, so 1 coke glass would go to waste. =/

I like the glass but don’t like watermelon. Most people seem to like melon though, so I think most people would like it.

I think it is a great idea. I also prefer to have matching glasses, but that doesn’t always happen. We have our company glasses and our everyday glasses. The everyday glasses are one that have had some of the set broken. It would definately get used at our house. I don’t know where you plan to get these, but I was at Dollar Tree the other day and saw a bunch coke glasses and other coke items there. They are kind of hit and miss, so I don’t know if they would be in your area or not, but if you are having to purchase a bunch of them, it wouldn’t hurt to check them out.

I would fill the glass with candy. If someone didn’t want to eat the watermelon right away then it would just go to waste. At least if it is full of candy it can be saved for awhile.

Thanks for the great feedbacks!
I actually was thinking of the different ways to use the coke glass, other ideas being to fill the glass with dirt and plant a pansy or something there … another is to fill it up with candies and cover it with plaid cloth with twine/raffia to secure it.
Which one do you like best? 😀 other ideas on how to dress up this cute coke glasses into presentable and useful favors would be appreciated too! 🙂

@noritake22: yes, they are 2 for $1 at my local Dollar Tree … and the bride-to-be just happens to love it so much … she loves the color, the shape and the vintagey feel of it, so this is a perfect shower gift 🙂 just need to think of ways to make it cute and irresistable, lol 😀
@vagabondgurl: I originally thought the glass would be a cute container for flowers so I’m hoping some guests would be able to utilize the glass in some other useful ways too …
@rebejane: that’s a good idea, maybe i could have some glasses filled with melons and others with watermelon 😉 i like the color combination … so summery!
@amariem: yes, great idea! filled it with some white oval candies and then covered with red and white plaids tied with twine … i like it!
