Engagement Basket

5 Feb

One of our friends got engaged recently and her fiancé was sweet enough to ask all of her best friends to go to Jacksonville to surprise her and celebrate with them on the night of the engagement {take notes boys..}. We of course wanted to bring a present to say congratulations and decided on a cute and practical engagement basket. We have made plenty of baskets in the past for bridal showers, but never one for an engagement. It was a little difficult at first because we immediately thought of items that started with her soon-to-be initial and items that said “mrs” {like these Kate Spade earrings} but decided against them all because that doesn’t really go with an engagement. We then switched our focus to the ring and what’s essential for wedding planning.

1. Bridal magazine – the Knot
2. Bridal magazine – Martha Stewart
3. Bottle of champagne {to celebrate}
4. Diamond ring bottle stop
5. The Knot Book of Wedding Lists {aka wedding bible}
6. Engagement card
7. Nail polish {to make sure her nails are always looking perfect as she shows off her new rock–we chose the Essie Bridal Collection because we’re big into details. Check the names of the colors below}
8. Ring holder
9. Jewelry cleaner {to keep the ring sparkling}
10.A picture frame {for their favorite engagement picture}
polish
We then crafted a “Congrats” banner, purchased a basket from Michael’s, and added some pretty tissue paper.
