"Fiesta" Invitations in A Bottle
My friends and family totally loved this product! I always have the best invitations, and thanks to Oriental Trading, I still have that title!

Your guests will love the creativity.
This was a great idea; however, the labels that went on the outside of the bottle didn't have enough adhesive. I had to add glue to them. Also, even though I wrote on the outside label to remove bottom to open, most everyone tried to open the bottle from the top and used tweezers to remove invitation. Perhaps the manufacturer needs to add the verb age to the label.

perfect for our prom!
Our prom was Underwater and we bought these simply for the bottle. Purchasing a glass bottle for a school was unacceptable so these were perfect. They arrived quickly and were exactly as shown.

Worked for my purposes
I bought these on clearance for a great price. I needed the bottles for one school project and the contents for a book fair. Would not have been good for their original purpose as a mailable invitation in a bottle. The mailing labels had no stick left to them at all and the bands around the top came right off. Again, worked for me since I wanted the plain bottle. The little maracas and confetti inside were cute.

Cute idea - poor execution!
I love this concept. But there were many problems with the actual execution of it. The corks were in too deep in most, and wouldn't come out easily, so most of my invitees didn't even know how to get the invitation out. I wouldn't have minded assembling the whole thing, if I didn't have to unassemble it first... would be better if all the parts were separate and I could put them together. The glue on the labels was sketchy - it either didn't stick AT ALL (had to use my own glue) or it stuck so well that if you touched anything with it, it was there for life. You have to use a fine-point Sharpie to write on the labels. The paper invitations were already rolled, but not well, so they had weird folds & stuff in them. All in all, it was just really a lot of work, and the final product wasn't nearly as cute as it could have been.

Invitations were cute, but I had to make my own invitations for the inside of the bottle. The price would have been ok if not for the fact that I had to buy shipping envelopes to mail them in and that was a lot of money!

Cute and Cheap Invitation
I ordered these for my sons 1st bday party. He was born on Cinco de Mayo and I thought this would be a cute invite. They were a great price but a little cheap looking. I knew they would be when I ordered them. I actually ended up buying new paper to put on the inside of them. I felt they just needed dressing up a little bit. The maraca and sombrero confetti on the inside are very cute and a nice touch.
