Cherylin’s beautifully handmade cookies have been featured several times on my blog, including ones she made for my bridal shower, work baby shower, Baby’s First Christmas and Brielle’s first birthday party favors! Today she’s here to share another fun gift she put together for a fellow past coworker Britlyn, who recently got engaged! Cherylin’s story:
I have been waiting for Brittlyn to get engaged and like everyone else I was waiting for them to come back from some trip with the great news, but instead it was a random Friday night. My immediate thought was “YAY!” followed by “Oh no! I should have ordered those things on my list!” I had to scramble to pull together a basket of fun engagement knick knacks.
The two most important things I wanted to include were a ring holder and ring cleaner. Since I didn’t have time to order a custom one like Tara so thoughtfully had waiting around for me when I finally got engaged, I hunted until I found one at Bed Bath and Beyond. Note from Tara: I purchased Cherylin’s ring holder from the Miss Pottery Etsy shop and highly recommend them for quality work that is on time and beautifully handmade!
I also included a few other items that were wedding related (wedding magazine and a planner), celebration related (pretty wine glass and bottle of wine), or included a monogram of her letter “B.
Other engagement basket ideas:

Thank you for the ring dish shout out – I continue to have many views to my etsy shop thanks to your kind words.
