Before I got married I had almost everything someone would need to live on their own sitting in storage. When it was time for me to marry Matt, I wanted items that we could use to decorate, because we already had the necessities.
Matt's sister is getting married in January, and because she isn't a nerd like me, more of her wedding gifts will go toward necessities. Because of that, I decided that not only would she get some food for quick, easy meals, she needed some decoration as well.
Total: $0 as I had all of it on hand.
I had a lot of fun making them, and I can't wait to make some for Christmas.
