This past weekend I had the pleasure of going to a friend’s baby shower, I love shopping off of registries and buying a cute little outfit for the mom to be. This time I was determined to make a special gift, and I decided on embroidered burp cloths. My friend is having a little boy so I wanted to make burp cloths with little neckties on them.
It’s my favorite little guy’s 1st birthday and I cannot believe it’s already been a year since he was born! Zachary is my close friend, Kristi’s, son! When Zach was born I worked long and hard on a stuffed Hobbes for him since that’s his dad’s favorite comic. Wanting to stick with that theme, I decided that we would get Zach a Radio Flyer for his 1st birthday, which I bought on Amazon along with the awesome book, Friday My Radio Flyer Flew, by Zachary Pullen!! I envisioned Calvin and Hobbes decals all around the wagon, unfortunately I did not have a device that would let me upload my own images…so on to the next idea! Zach’s 1st birthday theme is dinosaurs so I knew that I could put dinosaurs all around the wagon.
So my cousin’s wedding was approaching and she wasn’t registered anywhere. She and her fiancé are the kind of people who appreciate things for their history more than their price tag, so I wanted to make them something special that they could use for years to come.
Today I’m sharing the personalized tumblers that I made for my destination wedding guests. I put these inside of their Welcome Bags that I made and was surprised by how much my guests loved these, my dad is still using his years after our wedding. I got the idea for this from a past vacation my husband and I took, I read many reviews and found that bringing a large cup that keeps drinks cold is a commodity at all inclusive resorts and quickly went out to buy some Tervis’. For my wedding I wanted guests to be able to use something that would have them stand out as being part of our wedding party and to be a fun reminder of their trip.
