One thing I would do differently next time would be to have some already painted bottles ready for pick up. Although they were relatively quick to paint, I forgot to account for the time spent interacting with the guests. There was a bit of a back up so I had to write down the list of names of the people who wanted a personalized bottle because some didn't have time to wait for their painted bottles. Butt the fact that there was a waiting list with a good amount of guests willing to wait, was a good sign that they really appreciated the personal touch. Many of them also shared their enthusiasm online.

The flower designs selected for this event were perfect for the bottles. My goal was to create something that would complement their brand. It took a couple minutes for many of the guests to realize that they were hand-painted by me. Many thought, at first sight, that the flowers were part of the original design of the bottle, which was a great compliment. Maybe I should look into collaborating with product companies to paint on their products in the future.
