my bridesmaid gifts
The second I laid my eyes on Tina Tarnoff's hand-cut piece, The Flower Pot, I instantly knew that that was the image I wanted to represent our wedding. Originally, I had grandiose ideas of incorporating the image into the program, or the menu card, or something...but in the end, it was just perfect as is.
Not only was I drawn to the whimsical rendition of two love birds nesting in a sweet rose bush together, but I knew that this was SUCH a ME gift to give as art is a huge passion of mine. It felt incredibly proper to give something that was "so me" - even though it may not have been a typical wedding gift. The image that I was so drawn to didn't scream wedding, or mountains, or forest - which was ideal. Not everyone is into forest, mountain or wedding images to hang in their homes.
Plus, they are handmade....by a truly lovely artist. We hung ours up on the living room. It will always be a part of our home.
