Bridesmaids Gift Ideas | Inspirations & Creations I may be a bit biased, but I think my bridesmaids scored some sweet SWAG for being a part of our big day :) One thing I knew I wanted to do for sure was to make them something… because everyone just loves handmade goodies right?!? I saw this awesome diy doily bag on Design*Sponge. {image via Design*Sponge} After reading through the full tutorial on Ashley Ann Photography’s blog I got to work on making one for each of my bridesmaids! It took me a few trial/error bags but I eventually got the hang of it (the more spray adhesive the better!) For the initials I just printed off a letter in the size/font I wanted…carefully cut it out and then used the stencil that was left over to paint on each initial. The next thing I got for each of the girls was a pair of gray J Crew flip-flops (to match their J Crew BM dresses of course) to wear at the reception. {above 3 photos via author’s personal collection} Then I figured I should probably get them something pretty to wear and remember the day by.

Happy Serendipity Chocolate Brownie Cookies & Namely Marly If you’re looking for a sweet treat these Chocolate Brownie Cookies might just be the ticket. Some days you wake up realizing you’re stuck in a rut. You don’t really know what got you there, except for the perpetual motion in the same direction. (That’s sort of the definition of a rut.) But then some days something will come along to shake your tires plum out of their tracks. No, our something was not that dramatic. It’s September and we have an autumn breeze in the air. Summers are hectic in our household so I welcome this imposed change of pace. I’m happy for this chilly morning that woke us from our summer rut; reminding us to enjoy the warmth of the sun while we still can…and to remember where we stored the winter box of gloves and scarves. (Adapted from a recipe by Heat Oven to 350) Ingredients: * You can make these cookies gluten-free by replacing the flour with 1 cup of brown rice flour and 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour. Directions: Begin by heating your oven to 350F.
