hostess with the mostest

March is here! Guess what that means?? It's almost shower time!

[As a side note: With all of these big wedding milestones coming up, I keep telling myself that the wedding will finally start to feel more "real" - but it has yet to happen. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will finally hit me either with these showers coming up or when I finally start my dress fittings.]

If you remember, I had a small shower back in October when my bridesmaids came into town for some dress shopping. But coming up I have a shower in Pennsylvania for all of my family and then we have a couples' shower in North Carolina with the future mister's side.

That being said...I need to start looking for some hostess gifts!

A paper-source catalog came in the mail the other day and I was impressed with their array of cute gift items:

(Reusable Tote)

Definitely a great jumping off point - I'm sure I'll be able to find something fabulous for the special women who are planning these events. I truly am blessed to have them in my life.

What did you get the women who hosted your bridal shower(s)? Do you have any more gift ideas to share?


  1. Those are great gifts!

  2. love the apron idea! Anthropologie has some adorable ones as well!

  3. I'm looking for hostess gifts too right now! I was thinking a nice big bottle of fancy shower soap and an umbrella then attaching a note saying "Thank you for "showering" me with love" What do you think?? I also can't post anything about it to my blog because my mom and sister read it and it'll be for them!

  4. What a cute idea! I'm sure your mom and sister would love it! I might have to steal that.

  5. Please feel free to..haha I stole it from Sara's blog at butterfly cottage!! that's what we're here for!
