Before the white dress and the big hair comes the kitchen tea. Yay! Kitchen teas have evolved and changed a lot over the years. No longer does the bride have to wear a colander or a funnel-bra, unless she wants to of course, but one thing that hasn’t changed is, that it is truly an occasion to spoil the special bride-to-be.
Today, gift vouchers are a certainty and we wanted to create a space on the gift table where they could be celebrated and not get lost. So, we created a Here Comes the Bride Hamper, you know we like those, and we found everything we needed at our favourite home décor store, Mr P.
What you need for the bride’s hamper:
Ribbons and strings
A box big enough for all the gifts – buy yours here.
A utensil container – buy yours here.
A photo frame with a pic of the happy couple, we bought the 10×15 one – buy yours here.
Wall Art Sign – Mr Price Home, but not found online.
A little wooden lady – buy yours here.
Flowers for a small bouquet
This is what we did for the bride’s hamper:
- Arrange the items in the box.
- Tie ribbons and strings to the whisk and the wooden spoons.
- Dress the bride. We used lace tape and a small piece of net, and added a tiny bouquet.
- Make the bouquet. We used pink roses, gypsophila and ferns.
- We wrapped the netting around the flowers and tied the bouquet with white ribbon.
- We placed the bouquet in a plastic bag and white paper bag. This is how we did it for our Happiness is a Hamper post.
- The little bride perched on the edge of the utensil tin.
- The vouchers and envelopes will be put inside the utensil tin.
We chose white to match the theme of the wedding, but you can tailor it to suit your bride. Pick her favourite colour and choose items to match.
