Last week my best friend, Emily, got engaged to one of Jared’s best friends! Yay! I made a super quick trip to Texas to surprise her at her engagement party and couldn’t show up empty-handed. I feel like a common concern is what to get someone when they get engaged. I worked with Sprinkled with Pink for the most adorable engagement gift box.
I first met Emily when we working at an ad agency in Fort Worth together. Our agency did holiday parties big, so they rented out a resort for us in Austin and bussed everyone down there. Jared couldn’t make it because of work and Emily was the only other girl without a plus one so we became instant friends. Brock also worked with Emily and me but on a different team.
I knew Brock because he and Jared went to high school together and were really good friends. Low and behold Emily and Brock were flirting all weekend and later started dating. Flash forward several years and they are some of our best friends and now engaged! Brock was a groomsman at our wedding and Emily was in the house party and came to New Orleans with me for my bachelorette party.
When I heard Brock was proposing I knew I would make it work and wouldn’t miss it for the world. When Emily came into her surprise party she started crying because I was there and made the trip to Arkansas…which of course, I was there!
What To Get Someone When They Get Engaged
I worked with Sprinkled with Pink to give her something really special on her day. I feel like everything is surreal until you see it in writing so included in the gift box was a mug that said Future Mrs. Boren in light blue, I mean how perfect! Also included was a correlating future wifey sweatshirt, which is perfect for those late-night wedding planning sessions in her future.
The engagement box from Sprinkled with Pink was so easy and they did all the work for me. It came in a pre-wrapped box complete with crinkled cut paper, roses, and a pink ribbon bow. I had it mailed to my parent’s house so when I got to Texas it was all set and ready to go.
