To: Ariel

My friend, Ariel, graduated from school in the spring and just landed a job at her dream company (and obsession)-- Anthropologie's bridal boutique, BHLDN. They're opening up their very first shop in Houston, so she is moving in just a couple of weeks.

It all happened very suddenly, and when Ariel called when she first came back from Houston for her interview, she was only going to be in Madison for one last night before she was going home to gather her life and ship it down to Texas.

We went to a sweet and delicious restaurant called Brasserie V (get. the. fries.) with our respective boyfriends for a goodbye-for-now dinner, and I got Ariel a little gift that I thought was just too cute, if I do say so myself. It was simple and easy to throw together at the last minute.

A cupcake from Gigi's Cupcakes inside of a "A for Ariel" mug from, where else, Anthropologie

Inside of the cute box from Anthropologie- even their tissue paper is chic

The box closure is even more chic...

All tied together with a light pink bow, of course

Good luck, Ariel!
