DIY Cookbook Gift for the Bride

Kunbi O / Thursday August 22, 2013

Yesterday we shared inspiration for a fun cooking or kitchen shower. Today we have a special DIY project from the bridesmaids of one of our AP brides – Christal Beeko. Christal’s friends surprised her with a cookbook of their favorite recipes. This is such a thoughtful way to support the bride and it’s something she would cherish forever. I am definitely inspired…Click here to revisit Christal Jeanne and Martin Beeko’s Aisle Perfect wedding 

From Christal’s bridesmaids:

One of our fellow bridesmaids came up with the idea of crafting a personalized cookbook for our bride including each maid’s favourite appetizer, main course, dessert and cocktail/smoothie. All twelve bridesmaids lived in different cities around the world so we shared our recipes within an e-mail thread. An artistic bridesmaid coordinated the responses to avoid similar recipes and designed and bound the cookbook. The cookbook was presented at a shower three days before the wedding and Christal loved it. We wanted to give her a combined practical, unique and sentimental gift that would always be part of her kitchen as a timeless symbol of our love.
