Wedding Inspiration

When planning a wedding you want to get every detail perfect but we so often get wrapped up in the big decisions that the little ones get overlooked…my advice is to keep it simple & remember it is as much about your guests as it is about you…(and please note: You do not have to put your monogram & wedding date on everything!!)  Here are some fabulous ideas for your Best.Day.Ever.Image

(Starting from bottom left and going clockwise)

1.)  Love Wedding Cake Topper from betteroffwed  $39  (Tip: items that aren’t personalized can be sold or gifted after the wedding!)

2.)  Bobbin Lace Bridal Handkerchief from SaraCaccessories $36 (Personalized hankies are great gifts for grandmothers & mothers who will be tearing up during the ceremony… add a short message and select an embroidery color to match your theme)

3.)  The Perfect Match, Matchbox wedding favors from TeaAndBecky $119 for 50 matchboxes

4.)  Blush Pink Hair Flower Clip from Florentes $33  (Adding a little color to your bridal look makes a big difference in photos!)

5.)  Hand Stamped Tags from EternalJournals $35.50 for 100 tags (Loving the s’mores idea but if that doesn’t fit with your wedding just get creative..the options are endless!)

Monogrammed Tea Towels

Monogrammed Tea Towels

My flour sack tea towels make a great gift for anyone.. whether you are shopping for a hostess gift, bridal gift, baby shower, birthday or just for yourself…these personalized towels will not disappoint.

Add your initials, favorite saying, kitschy phrase, wedding date.. its up to you!

“Flour sack towels are truly legendary. Many of us still remember the days when families would purchase their household flour in sacks weighing 50 or 100 pounds, place the entire sack into a large container from which flour would be scooped until the sack was empty. The sack would be laundered and bleached, skillfully cut, hemmed and then put to many household uses as these were often the only towels available in the home.  Homemakers have enjoyed using flour sack towels for generations.  They are still the best bargain for dishtowels and get better with every use.  All the nubs, imperfections and shadings are characteristics of this fine towel.”
