I love a cake topper that can be re-purposed for other celebrations!

And I have an ongoing love affair with these tissue blooms!

DIY Idea for Shower Invitations, Menus, Favors, or Gifts

Here’s a tutorial to help you get started.

Gift Ideas

Most couples register for gifts these days, and here are a few little wedding related sweet gifts to consider as well.

My favorite bridal shower or wedding gift suggestion is a good table, desk, or mantel clock. This was one of the best gifts I received at my own wedding back in 1987, and it has been used every single day since then, remaining on my bedside table to this day!

Here are three fine and good quality possibilities like mine, in three price ranges.

Great Bridal Shower or Wedding Related Gifts

Know how many times I have heard the story of a bride and groom ready to cut the first slice of wedding cake at the reception who realize they don’t have pretty utensils for the task? What a great gift!

How perfect is this little leaded glass and brass box to display and store wedding jewelry for the bride to be (or any bits, baubles, and bling for ME or YOU!!!!).

I discovered Tocca’s Cleopatra scent at the Elysian Spa in Chicago where its loveliness was everywhere (in the soap dispenser, as a creme for the hands, in the air, sold at the counter), and I’m still hooked. Cleopatra shower gel is in my shower, hand soap on my vanity, and since I’m out of the perfume…this is going in my cart:

Could they get any cuter? The set is such a perfect, price friendly gift! Three mini eau de parfums of Tocca’s fragrances: Florence, Stella, and Cleopatra. Florence is Italian bergamot with crushed violet petals, gardenia, and sophisticated blonde woods. Stella evokes blood orange and spicy lily with white freesia and sandalwood. My favorite…Cleopatra features sparkling grapefruit with lush greens. white jasmine, and a hint of vanilla musk. Holy yum.

While Shopping BHLDN…

I can’t resist bridal fashion, and I own a couple of BHLDN’s capelets because…(1) fairies love a delicate gossamer capelet and (2) upper arms sometimes jiggle jiggle, and this hushes them tout suite!

I’m wearing a little BHLDN capelet over a tan shift dress from Banana Republic like this:

Ooooh, a capelet in a Rose color!

    I love your idea of giving a good clock as a bridal gift. It’s something that everyone needs but probably would not invest in a good one for themselves. It is also something that will last a lifetime. Great idea!
