It’s wedding season and you’re invited to the hundredth shower. You’re scouring the aisles of a big box store and can’t find a stinkin’ thing that suits your good friend. She won’t appreciate a fancy cheese knife and he certainly doesn’t need another garlic press! All of a sudden, Two Plates Full flashes into your memory and you sprint out of the store and drive like a mad woman to the Scottsdale boutique shop. Once inside you exhale loudly and regret that you didn’t think of coming here sooner. The colors, the prints, the personalization! Everything in the store fits your friends’ style to a T and you’ll have everyone impressed by your thoughtful gift! A week later when you enter the party you proudly place your unique gift on the present table. When the bride and groom open it they grin from ear to ear and thank you profusely. The only person not as pleased is the bride’s third cousin who sheepishly hands her a set of generic coasters.
Wall art is something that takes a house from “a place to simply sleep” to a “cozy home.” Both the bride and groom plaques can be used in all types of ways to decorate the couple’s home. The “You Are My Happily Ever After” art is especially sweet. Encourage the recipients to cluster the art with pictures of their wedding day to create a gallery wall of memories! The scroll-like borders give the designs a laid back and fun look. Don’t forget to write a little note on the back with sharpie so they can remember who gave them this super cute gift!
Receiving advice and well wishes is a wonderful way to bless your favorite bride and groom. This vintage inspired box has a slit in the top for guests to drop their notes in. Give as a bridal shower gift to use at the wedding ceremony. Offer guests slips of paper that coordinate with the wedding or shower colors and encourage notes, drawings, quotes or even jokes. This is also a unique guest book alternative and is sure to be a timeless keepsake.
Sometimes the smaller the gift is, the more significant. Strike a chord by giving your best girlfriend a hanky card. Handmade, this dainty card uses the usable hanky as the wedding dress in the art illustration. Another special gift for the bride is a card set titled 52 Tips for the Bride-To-Be by Lynn Gordan. An adorable cake cover reminds the bride to have fun and let loose. Packed with lots of tips and tricks, the recipient won’t be able to put these cards down until she says “I Do!” You can’t forget the groom on this special day. For the shower, consider bringing a smile to the guy’s face by giving him a matching mug for him and his groomsmen. The mug has “Team Groom” inscribed and is the perfect gift for his bachelor party. Other special gifts include a bag with “Bridesmaid” embroidered for the girls and a hanky for anyone who might shed a few happy tears.
Cutting boards come a dime a dozen so why not order your special couple a personalized one! Boards at Two Plates Full can be completely customized to include the couple’s names and their wedding date. Don’t fret about them ruining the nice carved board; encourage them instead to chop on the opposite side that no one will see! These make a beautiful gift that will add a personal touch to their kitchen for years to come. Choose from different woods, sizes, and designs. To really impress, put together a few food items for them to get chopping with!
What do Elvis, The Beatles, and Stevie Wonder have in common? All of their song titles about love are painted on this remarkable lazy susan art piece. Nothing makes the world go round like a song. Whether the couple likes to sing, loves music, or are simply sentimental, this gift thinks “outside the box” and offers a unique decorative accent for a home. Your bride and groom will find themselves humming these unforgettable songs as they sit around their table sharing their meals together. The hand painted heart and script style make this an item you’ll want to give to all of your brides this summer!
