For Punky Brewster's graduation, I was able to find a collection of beer themed items for her gift. All of these came from the Dollar Spot at Target. We bought her a beer bottle shaped ice cube tray, bottle cap coasters that read "Beer goes here", small tasting glasses for beer, and a paddle for a flight of beer. In case it needs reminding, Punky Brewster enjoys beer (drinking it and making it).
The paddle was around $1-2 I think. It was plain wood. If you can't find one at a Target, I'd suggest checking around the Internet. There are some places that have affordable options, there are restaurant supply options (if you want an entire case), and there's etsy for handmade options.
I knew I wanted to be a little creative with decorating the paddle. I came across Three Scoops of Love's chalkboard beer flight paddle and knew that would be a great idea for Punky Brewster's gift. The chalkboard finish would allow her to number or label the samples at a party for tasting. Fun? Right!
I found a red glossy spray paint from Wal-Mart that matched her college's colors. Bigbad came up with the genius idea of using Dixie cups to mark off the red circles for when I sprayed the chalkboard paint. For the win! So much easier than the hassle of trying to tape off those circles.
