Showering With Thanks

I’m fresh from my bridal shower/bachelorette weekend, and I can’t wait to share the fabulous details of the day and night! While I wait for my lovely bridesmaids to send some pictures my way, I thought I’d share the gifts I put together for the bridesmaids.

Mrs. Latte’s gifts for her bridesmaids had stuck in my head and I knew I wanted to do something similar… but lacking creativity, I decided not to reinvent the wheel and instead just take her idea (thank you, Mrs. Latte!).

Please don’t mind my awful photography… these weren’t completed until just before the shower, so I had to quickly snap some shots!

I bought these great gable boxes that were the perfect size, and using a handwriting font, printed out the “thank you” message onto card stock, which I then cut out using pinking shears and glued onto the boxes.

Using a mixture of typewriter font and the handwriting font I printed the messages onto cardstock, cut them out, punched a hole into each with a heart-shaped punch, and tied them onto the items with my favorite black and white ribbon.

…some yummy cinnamon scented soap…

…yummy smelling candles…

…and my favorite chocolate chip cookies using this recipe and sprinkling the top of each cookie with sea salt pre-baking to get the perfect salty-sweet combo…

I’m so glad I was able to give each one of my five bridesmaids a little thank you for giving me such a great weekend!

Coming up… the Stiletto shower, and later, the bachelorette extravaganza!

Did you do anything special to thank your bridesmaids?

    @Lisa: Between you and me, I had ordered some bath melts from Etsy that looked like cupcakes (so cute!)…and even though I ordered them way ahead of time, they didn’t make it in the mail…so, I sent Mr. S to Walgreens (the only place near our condo that’d have anything like this) and he found the cinnamon soaps 🙂

    What an awesome idea! You could give a lot of fun gifts using this idea and it wouldn’t have to cost a whole lot yet would be very thoughtful!

    Love the idea of putting all the gifts into a fun box!
