Our dear friends are planning a wedding. In fact, if you’d like to read more about their courtship story, go to their blog and be blessed!
The mother of the bride is one of my most trusted friends. She and I have been encouraging each other in our relationship with Christ for the past 16+ years. I wish I could find the words to tell you how grateful I am to Him for her friendship.
I feel privileged to be able to help with the wedding in a small way. I am helping with the hostess gifts. I know it’s just a little thing, but my goal was to lift her load, if only a tiny bit.
I created an embroidery design just for their wedding. They asked for the Scripture that is “their verse.” Deuteronomy 10:21….”He is your God who has done these great and awesome things.”
This adorable bride loves the beach and there is a beach theme running through the entire wedding.
She chose the colors for the gifts and they sent me some ideas and I put together their hostess gifts for their showers.
I put their verse on kitchen towels and aprons.
For a couple of women that went above and beyond, I put their initial also.
To make it all more “beachy”, I cut out little tags with a sand castle in it. Then I cut slightly larger circles with paper the color of sand.
and glued them together.
I wrapped the personalized towels around boxes of tea and tied it all together with ribbon and raffia.
Look how sweet they are!
Here are the finished gifts….
A better look at the towels….
I also made her a market tote to match. So when she carries her hostess gifts into the shower she can be all coordinated.
What a joy it is to serve my friend. How great is our God who gives us each talents and then shows us how we can use them to bless others.
