Marriage Blessings for New Couple


We started attending this amazing church in January. I've never attended one so welcoming, friendly, and consider everyone family. It's one of those churches in the mountain, surrounded by God's beauty. Complete country folks. Our Pastor mentioned a young couple got married and they have a home, but nothing to fill it with. I don't know about you, but I absolutely love giving gifts. I love the creative thought of sitting down in front of everything and deciding how to put it together beautifully. The awesome part?! This gift is lovely, but completely doable on a budget!!! The glass pie dish served as the "base". The center is a container of Lysol wipes (you could use paper towels or cardboard, etc.). I wrapped a hand towel around the wipes and put a rubber band around. I cut a piece of fabric and put over the rubber band to hide it. I tucked a whisk, spatula, and two spoons inside the towel and rubber band in the back. On top of the wipes I used glue dots and adhered a measuring cup. I filled the measuring cup with two washcloths and measuring spoons. You might notice the ruffle around the bottom of the towel? I sewed on a piece of fabric to jazz it up a bit. In the front, I added a clip-on flower. I purchased the majority of these items at the Dollar Tree. It seems I am always needing dish towels and wash cloths and thought it would be a nice "kitchen" gift.
I often see personalized wedding gifts on Pinterest. I had all the materials and thought it would be something nice for a shelf in their new home. In the Silhouette store they have ready-made monograms. I printed it out and applied it to the white plate. If you know their color or style, you could personalize it even more to match their home. I went with simple black/white hoping it would be okay for them.
