Wedding Gift Ideas: Homemade Pizza Sauce

Wedding gift ideas
If you’re anything like me, you have countless parties to attend this summer. From weddings, to baby showers and barbeques… the list goes on.

I’ve been searching for wedding gift ideas that I could make, to pair with items on my friend’s registry. Of course, her registry was filled with appliances, cooking utensils and towels—the usual. Being budget cautious, I hunted her registry for something affordable. I spotted a beautiful Williams and Sonoma Pizza Pan. The price was right, but something about a pizza pan just seemed lame. Boring. Heartless. Ok, I’ll stop now. Luckily, my creativity kicked in, and I thought, let’s make it a date night! Pizza pan, pre-made wheat crust, homemade pizza sauce, a fancy pizza cutter and a hand crocheted blanket to cozy up with. Sounds meaningful, sweet and thoughtful, right? Great, I thought so too! But one problem. I am not the greatest cook.

I stumbled upon this FANTASTIC recipe that’s easy. I even tested it on a pizza before gifting it. After all I can’t let my pizza sauce ruin the end of my friend’s “date night.” It did not disappoint. And as long as you’re going the extra mile, why not make some for yourself? Here’s the easy recipe from thebusybhomemaker.com

His+Hers=Ours: Five new wedding ideas

Hello again, I hope you had a lovely couple of months. His+Hers=Ours is back to talk about Scott’s and my new, exciting wedding ideas!

Scott and I have been busy, busy this summer. We’ve gone to five weddings and we still have three to go! Now that we’re engaged, we go to each wedding looking at all the details to see what inspires us and what we could do at our wedding. It’s been fun picking up wedding ideas from all of them and thinking of ways to put our own twist on them. Here are some of our favorite ideas:wedding ideas

First Dance. At one of the wedding receptions, after the DJ announced the entire wedding party – ushers, bridesmaids, groomsmen and the newly Mr. & Mrs. – the bride and groom went straight into their first dance with their wedding party surrounding the dance floor. We had never seen this before and it was absolutely wonderful. Everyone was so engaged with the dance, taking pictures, tearing up and watching the love between them. At other weddings we haven’t noticed the first dance as much, because it’s usually after guests have eaten and everyone is finishing their dinner or dessert, getting a drink or visiting the restroom – it isn’t exactly the most romantic time of the evening. I feel the first dance is a special moment between the newlyweds, and we want our closest friends and family to see it. I know they will, if we use this idea. Continue reading

A Slice of Summer Bridal Shower

It all started with Pear Tree’s Sweet Slices Fun Bridal Shower Invitations, which became the inspiration for these refreshingly simple bridal shower ideas by celebrations.com. The simple theme of bright, sunny lemons provided plenty of intense color and flavor for the decorations and menu ideas.

A wire basket filled with lemons and a copy of the invitation greeted guests at the entry to the party. Topiary centerpieces for each table were made out of purchased plants, decorative yellow pots, a handful of lemons and some yellow tulle.
