I'm at that age, where everyone I know is suddenly getting engaged. There are many weddings on the horizon, but there is one in particular The Man and I
As for the party itself I'll just say, we had a good time, and leave it at that. What I'm really here to tell you about is what I gave as a bachelorette gift.
this DIY bride kit on Oh Happy Day! and thought it was a wonderful gift. She made a sweet box and included lotion, mints, bobby pins, nail polish, and other practical helpful bits and bobs. I loved the idea but wanted to make a tad more personal, so I kept the color scheme and added a few details:
JoAnn's (the same one used in the Oh Happy Day! tutorial), and I just grabbed some cheap-o acrylic paint to paint it blue.
This is what I came up with:
Once I got everything wrapped they barely fit in the box, but with a little smushing it closed right up!
This project was so much fun to do, I highly suggest it for a lovely bride-to-be in your life. I recently found out my best friend in the whole wide world is engaged and I can't wait to think up some fun personal treats for her bride kit!
p.s. Fun Story: The clue for the condoms (though obvious) was my favorite. When Maria and Daily got engaged, Andrew (aka The Man) and I were waiting with bated breath to hear the news. We knew it was going to happen because Daily had called us the day before to ask if we could tell Maria that the party we invited her to was cancelled because it was getting in the way of his proposal plans. The Man was pacing the whole day, one of his best friends was getting engaged, he couldn't handle it! When the call finally came later that night one of the first things The Man said to Maria was "You're not allowed to have any babies for at least 2 years!" This was of course after "congratulations" and "I'm so happy for you" but it was hilarious, the engagement was too much change for him and so he made Maria promise "no babies for 2 years." She's kept her promise so far . . . just one year to go :)!
