Ever heard the popular wedding saying to put on a koozie, “to have and to hold and to keep your beer cold”? Here at CMC we’ve decided to update that saying and make it relevant to your favorite personalized cup! We’ve come up with “To have and to hold and to keep your beer yours!” Wow! Kind of an intense slogan, you say? Well, check this out; not too long ago, I spoke with a woman running a benefit. Her biggest problem was that the year before they had spent way, way, WAY more on beer, wine and liquor costs than anyone had anticipated. As she did a sweep at the end of the night, she noticed there were a considerable amount of “wounded soldiers” on guests’ tables. She put some thought into it and realized people were getting drinks, getting lost in conversation and forgetting where they’d put their drink in the first place (which obviously happened more and more as the night went on!). Being that it was open bar, they were only mildly concerned about finding their drinks and 9 times out of 10 just left their drink abandoned to the netherworld and went back to the bar for a fresh one (hey the ice made the drink watery anyway, right?)
Enter the cup and some permanent markers. Order cups with your event logo personalized on one side and a space like a name tag saying “This drink belongs to” on the other side with a line for guests to write in their names! They’ll more than likely have a delightful time coming up with nicknames for each other and enjoy being able to bring home such a delightful keepsake at the end of the night.
