When Joe and I got married we didn’t have anyone to be our flower girl and I was disappointed. Who can resist a cute little girl dressed up like a fairy princess? Riley was recently asked to be a flower girl for friends of ours. We are so excited. I wanted to find a perfect gift for the bride and I remembered the candle poem basket that I was given for my shower. So, I put together the perfect Bridal Shower Gift that the bride will always remember because there is a special candle for each major moment in their life.
Bridal Shower Gift: Candle Poem Basket
The invitation came for the wedding this week and I love it! The invitation was black damask on a white background with a sheer purple ribbon as an accent. I created the poem surrounded by a similar damask. You can download your own bridal shower candle poem for free.
I wanted to frame the poem and I had a cherry wood frame lying around that I hadn’t used for anything.
I spray painted the frame black and simply placed the poem inside.
We also got the bride a wash cloth, hand towel and bath towel from her registry. I placed the wash cloth and hand towel on the bottom of the pretty white basket. I wrapped a purple ribbon around the handle of the basket. I also tied the pairs of candles with the same purple ribbon.
The white candles I hot glued white lace ribbon around the center.
