I basically live in Target, so in my book the Target Wedding Registry is a wedding must-do. Whenever a friend registers there for their wedding, I know I can find something on their list that I'm jazzed to give. Of course, my dessert table designer background factors plays heavily into what I choose. I think Target's "Be Yourself, Together" concept makes perfect sense, since couples usually register for things that blend their styles to start their new life together.
The crew at Target Weddings asked me to pick a few items that I think are essential for wedding registries. I found a ton of things as I strolled around the store. I finally settled on this foxy wooden tray to add a fun DIY to give the couple.
these Lia Griffith labels, and I whipped up these more casual ones for everyday entertaining.
As the newlyweds have a housewarming, invite friends over, and host holiday parties, this bad boy is going to get plenty of use. And, anytime you have lots of guests, you'll have several food sensitivities to consider. Help the couple give their guests the hint about each dessert's contents (Hey, I think that rhymed!) with these witty little labels. Simply print them out, put them in a nice little bag, and give them along with this foxy Threshold tray.
1) Nate Berkus faceted platter (This is amazing in gold! Imagine how good sweets would look on this.)
2) Threshold Acacia tiered stand
3) Kitchenaid 5-speed hand mixer (Boysenberry and Flamingo are fab!)
4) Anchor Hocking glass jar (Perfect for cookies and candy.)
5) Threshold cocktail decanter

Threshold tray with fox handles
2" circle punch
my printable dessert labels
gold or silver glitter paper
sweets, lots of sweets
Print these fab dessert labels onto regular printer paper. Cut them out using the craft punch. Cut out an equal number of circles from the glitter paper.
Adhere a toothpick to the back of the label with double-sided tape or hot glue. Attach the glitter paper to the other side of the toothpick so it's sandwiched between the two circles. Set aside to dry.
Place all label picks into a cute bag, like this DIY glitter pouch from Confetti Pop. The entire project's gold, black, and white palette is perfect for a couple-friendly gift.
What's the most unique gift you've ever given?
