It’s that time, I suppose. The time when everyone you know starts settling down, or as I like to say, starts dropping like flies! The only trouble is the dilemma of the engagement gift. What to do? Something general, something personal, something for each party or a combined gift? What if there isn’t a registry yet?
Either way I’d love to offer something fun as a congratulatory gift to each couple. In the past it’s been gift certificates to restaurants they’ve never tried or the “everything a bride could possibly need to prepare” basket but what about the bride that isn’t interested in the traditional, cream-puff-meets-Glinda-dress wedding? What about the crafty, no fuss bride?
After scouring every blog/site/pinterest board out there looking for the idea no one has thought of yet I had a brilliant idea for Christmas decorations. (Somehow the holidays have so much in common with weddings.) It felt only natural to repurpose another idea I had started for Christmas. (That post can be found here) There were a few clear candleholders left over from the other project as well as some mason jars and with a little Amazing Goop brand glue I was able to put together some fun glassware. Here the jars and candleholders become “wine glasses” rather than display pieces. I added to the gift with pillar candles that got jazzed up with some spray paint and a little rhinestone ribbon around the base. I’m thinking a nice bottle of bubbly would suit this gift as well?
