Flower pot + kitchen gadgets = bridal shower gift
One of my good friends is getting married on Friday -YAY!! And my mother and I hosted a shower for her last Saturday. What to get?... not another toaster or blender.... So I went with something fun -and had a blast making it too!
I got a terracotta pot and ribbon at Michael's (with a coupon, of course!) and some wooden spoons, spatula, pastry brush, etc.
But I wanted to have some fun with it so I painted a sunflower (her favorite) on it -oh, boy, did it feel good to bust out my paints! I didn't realize how much I missed it until I did this.
I also got a cute recipe box (again from Michael's -I really shouldn't go there... I always find things I wasn't there for and spend too much....) and copied out some of our favorite recipes to put in it for her. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of that.
Congratulations, Julie!! I am so excited for you. And can't wait to be neighbors (well, almost neighbors)!
