Bridal showers can be so…well, pastel sometimes. They always seem to be chock full of pinks, baby yellows and lavenders. That might be great for a baby shower, but I love the idea of making it super graphic with a base of black and white. That way, if it’s a co-ed shower, the guys won’t feel like they’ve stepped into a powder puff! Once you’ve established your base, I love punching it up with bright colors from the food to the flowers. It doesn’t even have to be a ton of color…just pairing one would be striking and refreshing! How convenient would it be to register for gifts in the same palette?? There are so many options at Target that you’ll have no problem covering all your color bases.
And don’t forget to enter your “Be Yourself, Together” themed photos over at Brit & Co, where the grand prize winner will receive a $500 giftcard to Target and 4 additional winners will get $100 giftcards! You can enter until 10/15, so get those photos entered!
I’m a sucker for cute little gifts for people, so when I saw these keytags from the team at Project No. 8, I thought they’d be perfect to give out! There are tons of options, from serious to quirky to OMG!, and they can all be done in a bunch of colors. You can even customize the sayings! Kinda fun for your bridal party…especially if you pick words that REALLY fit the person.

Ever hear that phrase “opposite attract?” Sometimes its never more true than when 2 people come together as a couple and start combining their tastes. One could love traditional, the other a modernist at heart. Or one loves technology while the other prefers to stay a purist. Luckily Chad and I had similar aesthetics (yay modern!), but we’re still night and day when it comes to some things…like his obsession with coffee for example. I happen to be more of a tea girl myself, but he absolutely cannot function without a couple of cups of coffee when he wakes up!
If this sounds familiar to you, then Target’s registry can help! With practically everything under the sun to register for, you can get as practical or crazy as you want, and there’s definitely something for every taste. The best thing about registering is that there really is no right or wrong gift to ask for…so if you want some cookware, but your fiancé is itching for a sleeping bag, just go for both! By choosing gifts based on your interests, your guests will really get to know you as a couple that much better (and help you keep the peace at home!). If Chad and I were registering today, he’d probably register for the Keurig coffee maker, while I’d be sure to add the Chef’s Choice electric glass kettle for my hot & iced tea obsession.
