Thrifting for Wedding Gifts

My second cousin, Mallory is getting married. She’s a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart and when I was asked to help give her a Bridal Tea, I was thrilled to do so. The tea was an informal gathering of close friends and family held at a lovely cafe in Trussville, AL. The Chocolate Biscuit is a perfect venue for luncheons, teas or showers or just lunch with the girls. There were several Pinterest-type ideas at her tea, so I thought I’d share them with you.

Wanting to give Mallory a gift that fit into her “country chic” theme, I went thrifting and found a gently used picnic basket. I painted it with Van Gogh Chalk Paint and filled it with treats for their Wedding Night Picnic. Included were chips, nuts, chocolate, champagne, wine glasses, napkins and dessert plates.

Here is the before.

A window of memories.

The first time I saw you,
The first words you spoke,
The first time we held hands,
The first time we kissed…

Window of Memories

Flowers are love’s truest language.

She’s been dreaming 
’bout her wedding dress
since she was a little girl..
white with lace, and flowing,
accents made of pearl.

And this handmade gift was a huge hit. Made out of a discarded pallet, stained and inscribed with their name and date of establishment.
