My best friend has stood beside my through my mother's battle with cancer, countless break-ups, and as my Maid of Honor on my wedding day. When I received the call that she was proposing to her girlfriend, I was ecstatic! So naturally, I did what any best friend would do, I made them a massive gift basket filled with bridal goodies!
I went with a pink and gold theme because it is girly and classy. The two brides are different, but I knew they would enjoy being pampered.
I found cheap cardboard letters at Joann's and painted them with 3 coats of gold acrylic paint. They look amazing!
I used the same paint to create this frame and embellished it with engagement themed stickers from Joanne's $2 sticker rack.
I just fell in love with this banner sticker!
Next I decorated some of the free Disney buttons you receive at the parks. I had a fight with my Sharpie marker but I think they still turned out nice.
I found this wedding cake candle in the wedding section at Joanne's and "Mint to Be" mints at Hobby Lobby. I am not sure if they will use the candle, but I couldn't pass it up!
At Michael's I grabbed a package of monogrammed cards (luckily they were dark pink and gold!) and I found this photo book on sale for a dollar.
Of course, the girls needed some traditional bridal items. At Target I found two shades of blue nail polish for their "Something Blue" and a pink wedding magazine. The bride-to-be sash was on clearance at Michael's (yay!).
This makeup bag and light-up right were also on clearance!
Of course gift baskets are not complete without something to eat. I wanted to do something cute and remembered this pin from Pinterest while in line at Hobby Lobby!
As you have noticed, both of their names start with K so J had this amazing idea to include KitKats. So I just cut shapes out of an index card to cover up part of the candy's name.
I used a pink Sharpie to color two plain Hershey's bars. A cute little trick that you cannot do with "His and Hers."
The basket was 50% at Michael's and I already owned the white and pink tissue paper to use as filler. The girls were happy with everything in the basket and I could not be happier for my two best friends!
