Fiance and I have spent all of our New Years Eve’s (except the 1st one – I was on call @ work) at The Melting Pot (fondue restuarant).  It’s also where he proposed 2 weeks ago!  Definitely a tradition for us – this will be our 5th NYE there (6th NYE together!)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of putting dried petals from your bouquet into a clear ornament.  Maybe you could give him a clear ornament and promise to fill it with petals?  Or maybe that’s a good one for the Christmas after…hmmm all the weddingish one’s I’ve seen have been pretty cheesy too…maybe there’s something else you can do with a clear ornament…??

Just realized I am totally cheesy…so maybe no matter what I probably won’t be helpful.  But then I thought, hmmm maybe if you took e-pics you could do something with one of the pictures?  Like old school kid puts pic of his family on an ornament or there’s probably fancier versions too!

Possibly not as cute as some, but when Darling Husband proposed he did it with a bottle of Dom Perignon 2002 on Christmas Eve so now we have a bottle of Dom Perignon every Christmas.

I also make Christmas muffins for breakfast every Christmas Day and he makes his special Christmas coffee (not based on the Starbucks blend).

@MissComicBook:  that’s such a nice tradition! i like sentimental ornaments so since our tree last year never got really decorated, we have been picking up special ornaments from things we do together, or from craft fairs to jump start our tree. My mom wanted to bring me a hostess gift for hosting thanksgiving so I asked for an ornament from my family’s tree that would make me think of them when I saw it.

As for your ornament, is there any detail from your proposal that could give you a less cliched theme? I think going cliched is ok in this case. I might take silver or gold glitter foam sheet/card and cut out the profile of your ring and then write the date of engagement on it in a nice script. But my tree has a very hand-hewn feel. If yours is more classy, maybe look for a metal ornament that is of something significant to you two and then have your engagement date engraved on it.

@MissComicBook:  What’s a Sheltie in this context? A Sheltie to me is a Shetland pony, Shetland sheep dog or someone from Shetland (like my late granny).

@MissComicBook:  What a sweetie! She’s gorgeous. 

I loved your proposal by the way. I’ve loved Eliza Dushku since my Buffy obsession days. 🙂
