- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
For this up coming Father’s Day I wanted to do something fun to honor my Dad as “Father of the Bride”, growing up my Mom and I loved watching the movie by the same name and often compared my Dad to Steve Martin’s character in the movie. So with that idea in mind I came up with the following “Father of the Bride Father’s Day Gift Basket”!
Now the first thing you might notice and wonder about is, why is there a bottle of Excedrin Migraine in there? Well, this is why…I found these awesome glasses on ETSY from Dustyroadgurl and thought how cute would that be!
My first thought was to stick a small bottle of alcohol in it but my Dad doesn’t really drink to begin and now can’t because of pain medications he is on for fibromyalgia. So I thought what else could I use? Well Dad is prone to headaches and what father wouldn’t get a headache somewhere along the line of planning a wedding so there you have it!
After also adding the DVD of Father of the Bride, I went to World Market to pick up some of my Dad’s favorite UK treats (he’s British, I was born there too!) to fill in the basket. While there I also found this paperweight that I thought would be a fun touch.
I added a card last, and put it all together! Hope he loves it!
