I’m super excited to announce that I am a new contributor for eHow! For my very first article I am sharing a summer themed “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” gift box. There’s no better way to pop the question to your best friends than with a sweet gift. So hop on over to eHow to learn how make this gift – click here!
Asking someone to be your bridesmaid is a big deal. Your telling this person that they are important and you want them there for one of the biggest days of your life, if not the biggest day you’ve experienced yet. So when you ask those special ladies to join you on the adventure that is wedding planning you want it to be extra special. Today I have created a simple and sweet Will You Be My Bridesmaid box that any lady would be pleased to receive! All of the items included in this box are indulging and relaxing plus they also happen to be easily sourced and budget-friendly!
Start with a simple box. I chose a wooden design as I liked the simple and organic look. Next add some crinkle paper to cushion the items. I used organic paper mixed with gold to add a fun pop!
Since you will most likely be creating the same boxes for all of your bridesmaids you want to pick a unified theme that they will all enjoy. I decided to create a gift box that had a relaxing, treat your self-theme. These “Love Salts” from Fig + Yarrow were the perfect addition! With a light pink hue and a blend of essential oils and Himalayan salts, this is the perfect gift for even the most overworked bridesmaid.
Most importantly, you will need a cute card to officially say, “Will you be my Bridesmaid?” There are many options available online but I loved the feminine look of these hand-painted cards from Charleston, SC artist Rebecca Hinson. I chose two different styles from her studio to include in the gift boxes.
There’s no better way to celebrate than with a bit of bubbly. With their hot pink bottles, Sofia Mini’s are the perfect addition to any gift. Include in a few paper straws to add color.
Lastly, top off your gift with a few macaroons to add a bit of sweetness!
