My mom asked me to help her find a gift for a bridal shower she was going to. She loves the idea of baskets, but doesn’t really put them together herself. So she asked me to help her figure out what to get, then make it pretty.

We wanted to liven up the basket a bit though since it was a lot of the same colors. So we found the Glade candles and a cute sign to add. I had a small ornament from my Bath and Body Works days in my craft bin and added that as a small touch.
Then I added the finishing touches by wrapping it in tulle and topping it off with sparkly ribbon. What do you think?

The weather was a little sketchy at first – it was chilly when we got there. But it ended up being in the mid-70’s all week – perfect for the beach and heated pool. We stayed in a house called Malaikas.
I love parties. Any party. Direct sales parties, baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties, anniversaries – all of them. I have never met a party I didn’t like. And I love to get creative with my gifts. So I thought the best way to start this journey was to post about some gifts I have done for people. This post is for the towel cake I did for my friends Mike & Monique. I wanted to do something different for their bridal shower and this took the cake! It was definitely the hit of the shower, and are elegant AND useful. Here it is…
