Gifts from Emily's Etsy

(click to enlarge)

Victoria, a reader of Melissa's Smitten, has alerted me of her friend's fabulous Etsy store, Joyful Abode. She has handmade vintage aprons , perfect for people looking for a unique wedding gift. A homemade vintage apron along with something the bride has registered for (like cookware) makes a great gift.

Emily's recipe cards would be so cute attached to homemade cookies, to give as favors to guests. I also love the idea of sending a recipe card with the save-the-dates or invitations, and asking everyone to send back their favorite recipe with their reply--then the bride can put together a collection of the cards for her first cookbook!

Emily also has fun cotton market bags for brides' having a destination wedding. Instead of putting welcome baskets in their hotel rooms, the bride can put bottles of water, maps, candy, etc in these "green" cotton market bags--and they're something the guests will keep and use long after the wedding!
Thanks so much Victoria for sharing! I'm smitten with Emily's store!
