Thank you for all of the love and support this little corner of the internet has received over the past several years. As friends and family members were getting married, their weddings fueled the inspiration for this blog. But as seasons of life change, my focus, along with those nearest and dearest, shifted away from the wedding planning stage and I began to neglect this blog.

I have decided to indefinitely retire Calligraphy by Shannon in an effort to pour my attention into my lifestyle blog The Scribble Pad where I will be merging past and future inspiration boards and parties. You will still be able to place orders for calligraphy, custom invitations, and hand stamped items through my etsy shop. And as always, you can stay in touch with me under my moniker, The Scribble Pad on my blog, etsy shop, facebook, and even twitter! I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you.

1st Day of Christmas: Gifts for the Bride and Groom

Winter weddings present a unique opportunity for Christmas "themed" gifts. These work well for wedding gifts, engagement gifts, and even 1st anniversary gifts. Helping a new couple make their home cozy for the holidays can be a treat for you and a joy for them. With all the expenses associated with a new home, Christmas decor can be pretty sparse. So here are some ideas to help a young couple out:

1. Monogrammed and Embroidered Gifts:

Monogrammed Stockings, Tree Skirts, and don't forget the stocking holders all make wonderful and memorable gifts to a new couple. Pottery Barn has some wonderful ideas but make other stoes can meet your monogramming needs!

2. Greens:

Adorn their home with a beautiful wreath to welcome them back from their honeymoon! This idea only works really well if the timing is right. But another spin would be to host a wreath making party in their honor. This is a lot of fun and can serve as a terrific Jack and Jill shower to include all the family and friends in the holiday season!

3. A Box of Ornaments:

One of the best gifts my husband and I got was a big box of ornaments. Our tree would have certainly been channeling Charlie Brown if it wasn't for this wonderful gift. The best part is we get to remember our wedding and the special people who gave us our ornaments each year when we decorate our tree!

Enjoy your holiday wedding gift giving!
