We are kicking off this beautiful Wednesday morning with a brand new giveaway! But first… have you asked your bridesmaids to be in your wedding yet? We’ve showed you some creative ways to ask, but here’s a new one! This ‘pop the balloon’ kit from Petite25 Studios is a unique way to “pop the question” to bridesmaids in a memorable way. One lucky reader will win ten kits — find out more about how it works below!
A fun way to ask that special girl in your life to stand by your side— with a secret message in a balloon. When she pops the balloon (with the safety pin) your message as well as a burst of confetti will fill the air. Great for bridal showers, favors or revealing a secret message. A definite BURST of fun to get the party started!
Set includes: gift box, balloon filled with confetti, gift tag, Pop Me! tag adhered to the box, your message and satin ribbon. The message will read: “It’s my turn to ‘pop’ the question. Will you be my …?”

If you’re looking for wedding reception backdrops — incredible, creative, and totally awe-inspiring backdrops — you’ve come to the right place! We’ve talked about backdrops in the past, including these creative ceremony doors and flower backdrops, which is still one of my favorite posts to date. Today, we’re honing in on wedding reception backdrops for use behind your head table, cake table, or as a photo booth wall. We’ve rounded up a mix of twelve unique finds from some of our favorite places. Ready to get started? Bring on the coffee (um, I’m rounding out my first pot as we speak. Hey, give me a break, I’m a tired mama!)
Bring on the inspiration!
Wedding Reception Backdrops
1. This huge heart backdrop
This would look stunning in your head table or sweetheart table photos. Or, have guests sign the little wood rounds as a makeshift guest book and hang it in your bedroom after the wedding. Love, love, love.
We love hearing from our brides… and their moms, too! When Susan wrote to us about her daughter’s bridal shower, we swooped right in with inspiration. She’s planning a kitchen themed bridal shower, but was having trouble finding the perfect invites with a more modern feel. To help, we found kitchen bridal shower invitations with matching recipe cards for guests to fill out and bring to the party. Once we found those, it was easy to piece together some additional ideas. Check out the invitations by Lucy Loves Paper and see what else we found including a state cutting board, apron, personalized rolling pin (ahh, I want one of these), a recipe box, cookbook, and favors. Which of these finds do you love best? Besides those invites, I’m crazy over that apron… it’s darling!
Spring and summer are right around the corner, which means lazy days on the beach are finally on the way! If you’re planning a bachelorette bash at the beach, you’ll love this DIY bridesmaid beach bag gift idea. We’ve pieced together our favorite essentials for your girls including an essential tote bag, sunnies, flip flops, an adorable sun hat, beauty products, and more. Enjoy!
DIY Bridesmaid Beach Bag
What’s in the Bag
We love this new canvas tote with aqua stripes. It has enough room for her swimsuit, towel, change of clothes, and everything you see here. By Thirty One Gifts, where you can get it embroidered, too.
This gold jewelry piece is simple and oh-so-sweet. It’s the perfect everyday bracelet she can wear to the beach — and beyond. By Ava Hope Designs.
She can lay out in style on her own personalized beach towel. These are by Memento.
These fun bridesmaid sunglasses can be worn on the beach + at the wedding! Spotted here.
These aren’t just ANY old flip flops. They have custom sayings that leave your mark in the sand! Our fave for this bag? “Follow me, bring wine”. There are more available, too! By Sand Imprint Sandals.
Floppy Sun Hat
I’m ordering this one stat. If you need a floppy hat (I mean, really, who doesn’t?) then this is one that’s inexpensive AND adorable. Spotted here.
Fill a wristlet (we spotted the one shown from Thirty One Gifts) with some favorite beauty products, like nail polish, a stick of sunblock, waterproof mascara (this one is from Pürminerals), and her all-in-one makeup solution in a compact form (also from PürMinerals.com). The lip balm is ultra-nourishing and essential because, hot pink. From Maybelline.
Book to Read
And, last but not least, throw in a book she can read on the beach. I recommend Yes Please, but that’s because Amy Poehler is my spirit animal. Yours might be Tina Fey, in which case this would be an awesome choice. Or Mindy Kaling’s book which was so funny I laughed out loud (and I was sort of bummed when I finished reading it). Another favorite? This book by Ellen Degeneres. Pick any book she’d like (but we recommend something funny and entertaining). I mean, a dramatic book is just a little too serious for a relaxing bach weekend, ya know?

She’ll L O V E this gift. Promise. I know I would!

I’m not the world’s best baker, but I’m learning! The idea of baking dozens for guests, though, would stress me out.
