Last weekend, one of my husband's oldest friends got married. It was a beautiful wedding, reception and location! Shauna and her new husband, Eloy were married at the Mill Creek Inn up Mill Creek Canyon, here in Salt Lake. I wasn't able to go to her wedding shower the week before, so I added her shower present into her main wedding present.
About a month ago, Amber, Marci and I went to an annual festival here in Utah called Swiss Days. It is up in Midway - one of my most favorite places in this world! - and there is tons of crafty goodness everywhere there!!!!!! One of our most favorite booths was a booth that had these most darling stands! They were made of things, you wouldn't ever think of. Picture frames on top of candle sticks, plates on top of glasses, and on and on! So Alice in Wonderland for sure! I knew I needed to make one. So for Shauna's shower present that is what I made here. I was in a hurry when I took the pictures, so unfortunately I didn't get a good one to really be able to tell what it's made from. For her shower, I was assigned the color black.
Here is what I made:
For wedding and shower presents, my most favorite thing to do is to get a bunch of stuff from the registry list, and get a fun basket to put everything in, and have it all wrapped up in cellophane! For Shauna and Eloy, we got cookie sheets, a shaker, measuring glass, a picture frame, water goblets, a door mat and some other things. Again, from Tai Pan Trading, I got a huge basket and put everything inside. I wrapped it all up with cellophane and then tied it all together with ribbon, fabric and flowers! The basket was absolutely huge, so here is a picture of the pretty wrapping, since it was hard to get a big pic of everything:
