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

Bridal Shower Candle Poem Gift

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.
I hope she loves it!  We are so excited for their wedding!

    Such a charming way to remind the bride and groom that marriage is for life, not just the excitement of their wedding day.
