As a recent bride, I wanted to do a little something for my four bridesmaids to have in the Bahamas during the wedding. Customizing gift boxes was a no brainer, but sourcing products with a purpose made them that much more meaningful. The Presence Co. is a curated artisan gifting company specializing in personalized gift boxes for special occasions. My favorite part about gifting these boxes is the mission behind them, as Naomi includes a nonprofit product in every package to complement the story you are telling by gifting for good. These gifts give back and empower such organizations continue their work to make our world a better place.
I asked Naomi from The Presence Co. curate soft boxes filled with libations to celebrate and a few cute bits to hold onto. We selected soft scents for relaxation and sweet momentos, like the gold straws and bangle bracelets engraved with the coordinates of Harbour Island – where the wedding recently took place. Our destination wedding was all about the location in the Bahamas, so I wanted to incorporate details to make that connection. Jenny, from Port + Palm Co. designed tropical florals pieces for the main event, so she put together some sweet bud vases an mini arrangements to enjoy with the girls over a homemade brunch spread and cocktails. We mixed in vintage and modern pieces with various shades of blue found around my retro home, with a little Palm beach flair.
This impromptu photo op was such a fun-filled afternoon, full of laughter and quality time spent with my dear friends and (photobombing) dog, Bruce – who is the spitting image of a Royal Bahamian Potcake. If you don’t know what that means, just google it. Special thanks to our models – Hannah of Forrester Stylings for providing all of the wardrobe and Grace for her watercolor skills!
