The people we choose to stand next to us on our wedding day deserve to feel appreciated for the work, time, and money they spend to make the vision for the day come to life. It shouldn’t take much to let them know how grateful we are that they are a part of our lives.
I stumbled across Bridesmaids Gift Boutique a couple weeks ago, and I came up with a TON of inspiration. This site is perfect for anyone searching for a cute, personalized and inexpensive way to make your crew feel special. I liked the options so much, I’ve decided to partner with them on a special giveaway post to show you just one of many ways to ask your BFFs to stand next to you, or simply thank her/him for being a part of your day.
I’m big on creating fun gift boxes and mini care packages. I love setting an intention behind what I’m giving to someone. So when I saw these Instagram-worthy travel wine cups, I thought HOW CUTE they would be for a celebratory situation like a wedding day, bachelorette or just plain “will you be my bridesmaid?” type gift.
Personalization is key when it comes to a party favor, so no one gets their drink confused. I also loved the idea of just putting your hashtag on them! These cups also keep your drink cold for up to 3 hours, so you can sip or gulp and no one has to know how many you’ve had…
Here’s what I’d include in my care package for my friends:
A recipe for a fun drink (like my Mojito Limeade below)
A tiny bottle of liquor
A drink stirrer
Simple syrup or a simple syrup recipe
Here’s a recipe for one of my favorite cocktails, a Mojito Limeade! (I’ve also included a virgin version too for any friends who are staying away from liquor, or if you just want a yummy drink without getting completely hammered!):
1 tablespoon of simple syrup
1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice (or a half a lime)
12 fresh mint leaves
a shot of white rum
1 can of lime LaCroix
1 scoop of frozen Limeade concentrate
Muddle the mint leaves and simple syrup together in the bottom of the glass. Add a heaping spoonful of the Limeade concentrate and the rum and stir. Add the LaCroix and lime juice, and stir. Add ice and a couple more mint leaves for garnish.
If you want to make this beverage non alcoholic, just leave out the rum! It’s still delicious!
