Cotton Anniversary

8/20/2015


Ian and I will be celebrating our second wedding anniversary last month. We both went with the traditional paper gift last year (a framed photograph of a starry night at our wedding venue, concert tickets) and just looked up what the second anniversary is: cotton. We've been wanting a new bedspread and sheets so instead of giving each other a surprise gift we're picking out new bedding together.

I'm such a sucker for stripes so I love this West Elm set and this one from Serena & Lily. I'd love to do all-white like this set from Restoration Hardware but am not sure it's practical.

Where else should we be looking? If you're married, do you stick with the traditional gifts?

oh my gosh, that room is lovely!
we thought about doing the traditional gifts but we were accumulating too much stuff so we've committed to our gifts being experiences, not things. it's fun!
