friday eye candy gift

rae dunn ring bearing plate

It’s been so exciting to have a few of our  Pink Olive customers get married this month and have them come in to pick up little details for their wedding. The most coveted piece has been without a doubt, Rae Dunn’s “we do” ceramic plate. It is such a fun piece to put the wedding rings on during the wedding and later as a keepsake at home. Are you married/getting married soon? What is the most special gift you’ve received?

Happy Weekend!
