House Warming Gift

A longtime girlfriend is having a house warming party this afternoon.  This is the 3rd home that she owns now.  She needs "NOTHING", but isn't that the case for most of us! 

I was on pinterest and the picture below was my inspiration. 

She's remodeled, decorated, the whole nine yards since moving in only a couple months ago!  So I thought this was perfect!

I found the basket at Marshall's.  It's a smaller version of the one I have for my remotes.

I also found the monogrammed napkins at Marshall's.  Although I wasn't actually looking for them, but when I saw them with her initial, I thought hey, why not!

I went back to Goodwill and luckily they still had some chalkboard drinking glasses!  I got 4 more!  Two for the basket, two more for me!

Attaching the hammer was a challenge.  I used tape and raffia.

I made the note on my computer. 

I played around with the arrangement of the wine, 1 glass or 2, napkins and a small wooden sign that says, "Bless Our Home".

I debated whether to write something on the glasses and the basket.

Decided not to write on glasses, they come with two pieces of chalk in each glass.  She can choose what to write on them!  But I did print her name on the basket.

I hope she likes it!
