I think that one of the most rewarding things in life is being able to shower your loved ones with gifts. I’m not talking materialistic things here but rather gifts that would last in memory for a lifetime. Perhaps like giving a trip to Paris?
My oldest sister did just that. She gave my newly wedded sister and her new husband a honeymoon gift to PARIS!
We scrambled on ideas about how to reveal this surprise to the bride on her wedding day. When we saw this huge Eiffel Tower clock at HomeGoods (such luck!), we knew exactly what the plan was. Mission accomplished- we were going to create a surprised Paris theme table.
Here’s how it all came together…
The Eiffel Towel was surrounded by white roses, yummy desserts, candles, and scattered with diamond confetti and fresh white rose petals. We were so excited to have our sister discover this surprise when she entered the reception hall!
I’ve learned a lesson. When you are stuck on finding the perfect gift…think about giving an ‘experience’ instead. A trip to somewhere special and unique. It doesn’t have to be something as extravagant as traveling to Paris…maybe tickets to a show, a dinner experience, a weekend getaway, etc.
Have a GREAT Sunday!
