Wedding Season is upon us. What better way to start than with the ultimate wedding? Royal weddings don’t happen often but when they do it’s a real-life fairytale. This one seems particularly special because an American will be joining the Royal Family. Meghan Markle is living out the dreams of so many little girls right now.
Weddings are special, royal or not. We have a few that we’ll be attending over the coming months. I love picking out wedding gifts. It’s a special way to help the newlyweds start their lives together. Matt and I still have a number of our wedding gifts that we use and are so grateful to the family and friends that shared our special day with us.
When it came time to start shopping for gifts I knew British brand The White Company would have the perfect selection. They have a variety of quality, beautifully designed products that are guaranteed to be used for years to come. I love to give items that a couple can use to entertain with. There’s nothing quite like making a house a home when you first get married. So a great way to do that is to invite family and friends over. The White Company has so many great options for entertainment pieces.
This artesian serving dish is perfect for everyday use but elegant enough to have out when guests are over. It’s made from Portuguese clay and comes with a lid to keep your dishes warm. It’s classic design will go with most decor.
This olive wood platter also makes an excellent gift and serves as a wonderful display piece. No two platters will be the same due to the nature of how they’re made, meaning it will be that much more special. The White Company has other gorgeous items in their olive wood collection including these sustainably sourced handmade salad servers.
I love multifunctional items. These dessert dishes can be used for your traditional desserts, or if you’re feeling creative, a great summer cocktail. However, I suppose in some cases they could be one in the same! I also really love the shape of these dishes. They’ll stand the test of the time, yet still be interesting.
The White Company also has great options for outdoor entertaining and decor as well. These glass jar fairy lights add ambiance to any space. For some additional mood lighting, the mini hanging lantern and the long pavilion tealight holder are also great gifts. I love that these work in just about any space. There’s also these comfortable linen tufted seat cushions. These are perfect for areas you want to create seating or to add additional cushioning to existing seating. The combination of these elements makes for a cozy inviting outdoor space perfect for making memories.
When Matt and I got married we got some great gifts to be able to take these little picnics out to our favorite parks. Needless to say, I’m a picnic advocate. It’s a great way to spend some time outdoors. This blanket is essential for all of your park adventures. It has a strap that makes it really easy to carry too. I also love this set of cotton napkins. They’re perfect for your picnic or at home. Once you’re done you just throw them in the washer and use them again. You reduce waste and it looks so much more refined.
Now, what are you going to wrap all these amazing gifts with? The White Company has you covered here as well. They have this classic gray and white striped paper that’s perfect for any occasion.
I adore weddings. I love that as a guest you get to give them a gift that will help them start their lives together. These might seem like simple everyday items but these are the things that they’ll make memories with.
