        OOOO! I love those signs! Is the link in this thread? If not, R, can you post it? I would like to make these too. Thanks! I wish I can make a lot for our guests, but with almost 40 something people attending we had to cut back especially since my fiance and I are paying for our wedding ourselves. But still if there are things that I can make for free, I will definitely take advantage!

          today's planning post is dedicated to gifts...bridesmaid's gifts that is...my sister and three daughters (ages 23, 17 and 17) will be standing up with me...they're not 'bridesmaids' per se, but for this post, that's what i'm calling them. 

           

          THANKS to a fellow BDW bride, i purchased the cutest purple Eurocases from paperpresentation.com for $29.97 (includes shipping and tax)...i was able to select the color and size wanted (BONUS)..the same Eurocases are available on the Land of Nod with limited colors available and you don't get to choose the size...  take a peak...

           

          eurocases2.jpg

           

           

          ok, now on to the contents...in addition to tapping into my inner DIY Diva...i've become quite frugal so the Eurocases are filled with FREEBIES and $1 deals from Target, Michaels, Dollar Tree and Dollar General.  the freebies include cosmetic and perfume samples..all FREE from an area department store (which shall remain nameless)...anyone can get FREE cosmetic and/or perfume samples..as a matter of fact, they WANT to give them to you in hopes that you'll return to purchase...and because i was putting together four bags i was able to get an ARRAY of FREE samples even some high-end samples from Prada and Dior!  woo hoo!!!  here's a peak at the loot.

          in addition to the FREE cosmetics, toiletries and perfume samples, included are some GREAT $1 deals..an emory board shaped like a flower (Michaels), some cute glass magnets (Target), a floral luggage tag (Michaels, a hardcover notepad (Dollar Tree) with mini pencils (Dollar General) and the cutest erasers ever (Michaels) (my oldest is in law school and the two younger ones are seniors in high school so i'm hoping they'll use the erasers)...take a peak.

          well, brides..that's it for today's post..tomorrow i'll feature my sister's and my son's gift bags...

           

          as always, HAPPY PLANNING!!

              good afternoon, fellow BDW.com brides...as promised this planning post is dedicated to gift goodies...i've put together goodie bags for my sister and my son.

               

              my sister is a mother of three (all of her kids are under the age of 4) so she has little time for herself so i thought i'd put together a goodie bag dedicated to spa treatments that she can do at home.  i've included a pedicure set, cosmetics and some perfume samples all placed in an oversized reusable shopping bag ($1 deal from Marshalls).  here's a peak at her loot.

               

              R goodies III.JPG

               

              i included some invisible bra straps as the dress i've chosen for her and my daughters to wear is strapless and she's concerned about going braless..so i hope the invisible straps will allow her to feel secure in a bra.  as you can see, the pedi spa items are purple...to keep with my purple colorscheme.  woo hoo!

               

              here's a peak at the items up close.

              r goodies IV.jpg

               

              so moving on to my son.  his goodie box is incomplete as i've decided to include some travel accessories that i found at marshalls a few weeks ago like a passport cover, travel pillow and the like....i've gone back and forth about whether to include the travel accessories as i'm finding it incredibly hard to buy for a 21 year old man but i believe he'll feel left out if i don't get him some goodies so i'm hopeful that the travel items will help fill up his goodie box.  here's what i've included in his goodie box thus far.

              well, brides, that's it for today's planning post..enjoy!

               

              as always, happy planning!!!

              ps...oops, i wanted to include some more DND signs that i whipped up for a fellow BDW bride...i won't be providing the paisley DND signs template but i can provide these for anyone interested.  its a powerpoint template which can be revised as you see fit.  just let me know if you'd like these and i'll send them your way.
