Shower Tomorrow, and Hostess Gift!

Tomorrow is our long awaited shower, I’m so excited!

Of course I’m excited to hopefully knock a few things off the registry that we really need, but more than that I’m just really looking forward to seeing our friends and family. Other than our engagement party and wedding, it’s rare to get together all the people you love in one place and is something to really appreciate.

Because we wanted it to be fun and casual we decided on a Jack and Jill shower/BBQ/party at my parent’s place rather than the traditional girls only thing – I’m not all that comfortable being the center of attention that way, so it works out well for everyone. Plus I think that dads to be also deserve to be celebrated, even if it’s only by getting to hang out with his best guy friends!

I stressed for a while about the perfect gift for my best friend / party planner extraordinaire¬† Alexis. She’s a tough one because she lives in DC, and we live in NY. I don’t see her that often and I’m embarrassed to admit we’ve never even seen the apartment she currently lives in with her boyfriend Scott. That means I have NO idea what they might need for around the house, which rules out many common hostess home gift items.

The one thing I do know about Alexis is that she LOVES to entertain and throws dinner parties as frequently as once a week. So when I stumbled across this, I thought maybe it’s something she’d get to use at her parties and might appreciate.

Alexis occasionally reads this blog, so just on the off change you’re reading right now, don’t scroll down!!

Pewter Bird Cheese Markers from Beehive Kitchenware

I think they are totally adorable and that she will at least like if not LOVE them.

Jeff however told me last night that he thought they looked like they didn’t cost more than $12 :(

I hope Alexis doesn’t agree.

Have a good weekend everyone, hope to be back Monday with some pictures!

Alexis here – I love my cheese markers, and even more incredable is the fact that I don’t have any yet. Perfect gift! I will be using them at my next dinner party in just two weeks.
