Planning a wedding during a pandemic = not fun. People as me how is planning and my response is the shrugging emoji. The motivation to prepare save the dates, have a website is practically none, but I did have fun putting together my bridal party proposal boxes. Plus, these can also be a great giftbox for any occasion too!
First off, apart from having the very obvious Bridesmaid tag on a box, I tried to attribute each item to something Harry Potter related. Additionally, I wanted to shop local as well, minus the alcoholic portion. I have here featured
Beth and Olivia Clean Hand Spray* – to “scourgify” your hands. Scourgify is the spell in Harry Potter to clean, and its pretty vital to keep your hands clean in this time!! Might as well have an amazingly scented hand sanitizer that makes your hand feel soft as well. (I’ve had my fair share of terrible hand sanitizer in grocery stores and only use my own.) Also, this is my mom’s favourite hand sanitizer and think this is a great gift to anyone for years to come! Beth and Olivia is one of my favourite local handmade brands, and I love stocking up at the craft fairs. Of course there are no craft events this year, but you can shop online or get local pickup!
Planet Bee Okanagan Gold Honey – When I saw this I definitely thought of “liquid gold” aka liquid luck aka Felix Felicis that was introduced in Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince. I wasn’t a fan of the movie when it came out and not my favourite book of the 7, but the movie started growing on me as I re-watched it…and then re-watched it another 100 times. Drunk Harry on Felix Felicis was the best! Also this honey was made in British Columbia! 🙂
Henkell Sparkling Wine – My friends know I won’t be able to hold my alcohol in so that’s their job to drink for me! And this is an ode to Butterbeer, a drink that Harry has enjoyed with his friends in the good ol’ Hogsmeade.
Beth and Olivia Bridesmaid/Maid Of Honour Mini Beauty Box *– Since I wanted something to say “bridesmaid” or “maid of honour” on it, I also ordered a few of these mini beauty boxes. They each contain a lip butter (I have purchased at least 5-6 of these as they’re so good,) a mini soap, and a mini clay mask. There are different scents you can choose from, such as Rose Geranium, Earl Grey, Peppermint Chamomile, and more. There are also larger versions of the Beauty Boxes that also contain a Hand Butter and a 4 pack of soaps. Beth and Olivia also carries other boxes that say “Positive Vibes,” “Congrats,” “Thank You” . Hence these bridesmaid boxes can be swapped into any other type of giftbox!
It sucks that so many things have to be treated differently this year with the pandemic situation at hand, but these boxes will for sure put a smile on my friends’ faces!
