Bridal Shower Gift!

My husband's brother is getting married in August....and his bride-to-be's bridal shower is today. I got her cooking things needed to make a cake...such as a cake pan with lid, measuring cups, measuring spoons and spatula. I absolutely love to use brown paper (or even newspaper) and raffia to wrap gifts with. I think it looks so fun and country! My gift usually looks so weird on the gift table at a shower. Most of the other gifts are in wedding gift bags or pretty white or floral wrapping paper.....and then there is my gift. Brown and country....simple and sweet. I LOVE it!


  1. Oh, I love that brown craft paper too! And my gift always looks oddball compared to the elaborat wedding wrapping paper. But that's me, simple and country. :) Have a great weekend and shower!

  2. Well, I happen to love it!
    I can't wait to use this idea myself LOL!

  3. I too like to use things like brown paper, rafia, etc....I like to make my wrappings unique.
    Have fun at the shower!!

  4. Oh, I so agree! Brown paper just makes it even more lovely. What a sweet and thoughtful gift! have a good weekend, blessings, kathleen

  5. I just love it and adding the measuring cups was so cute! I also like your new background!

  6. Love the raffia wrapping! How fun. Great gift, btw. Sorry I've been a bad blogger commenting friend LOL. lIFE IS CRAZY as always Katy. HUGS!

  7. I love that your gift stands out. I would always wanna pick that one first.hehe.. One year I wrapped all of my christmas presents in brown paper... it was just so cute and country. Susie H

  8. Personally, I just love it! All that foofoo stuff just isn't me! I love the warm, natural look of the brown paper, and it goes perfect with the gift. What a great idea for the cake baking!!!!

    Hope you have a great time at the shower!!!


  9. Boy I can relate to that. All my wrapping is done in homespun or kraft papers with rafia. In fact, I buy it in huge rolls and my favorite looks just your blog!!

    Have a great time at the shower,
    hugs, Linda

  10. It just shows that you love the simple and pure things, which is a good thing. Deb

  11. Oh that looks adorable Katy, what a great gift.

    I'm back home in the states so I'll be popping in daily again :) I see you've been very busy. Let me know how the homeschooling works for you, I'm thinking of homeschooling my kids too but I get too worried and freaked out LOL


  12. How clever, Katy! And I love the paper and raffia too :) Hope you had lots of fun...

  13. I am a brown paper gal myself. Your wrapping is warm and homey! Love how you used the measuring cups.

  14. I love brown paper packages...tied up with string! hehe! I use it, too for gifts. I also use brown paper sacks, too. I just love the way it looks!

  15. Yours would be the first gift that I would want to open! It is simply lovely.


    PS The applesauce affects the taste of baked goods very little. We love it. In brownies, it will make them more "cakie" so you may want to use 1/2 and 1/2. We love it. It works great with boxed cake mixes too.


I am always so grateful to read your comments! I thank you for the time you took to visit and share your thoughts with me. :o)
