Giveaway: Ring Bearer Bowl from Paloma’s Nest

Paloma's Nest

We’re starting August off right – with a fabulous giveaway from Paloma’s Nest!

A few weeks ago, we showcased these charming, elegant Ring Bearer Bowls from Paloma’s Nest as our Editor’s Friday Favorite:

Nancy & Andres

We love their classic, simple design and heirloom quality, but what we love the most is that each Paloma’s Nest item is hand cut, free-form, and every tiny letter is hand stamped, making for a customized, one-of-a-kind piece.

Paloma’s Nest founder Caroline Colon Vasquez strives to use natural, recycled, up-cycled, and/or biodegradable materials to make her products. Even the gift packaging at Paloma’s Nest is eco-friendly, and the artist’s studio is powered 100% by renewable wind energy.

Imagine our delight when Paloma’s Nest decided to do a giveaway across all Zankyou’s international sites!

You can enter to win this beauty this week:

    We got engaged in the airport in Phoenix, Arizona on Jan. 3 of this year! We have a thing for airports since we’d done long-distance dating for a while, and I love the TV show “Friends” (remember Ross/Rachel?!). He planned the whole thing in secret and we stayed overnight and hung out with all my friends there. It was one of the most magical days of my life!

    Where did we get engaged?

    The Century Tree. To many outside of the Texas A&M bubble, this may not mean anything but it is the most romantic place. It is a tree in the Academic Plaza on A&M’s campus, and it’s no ordinary tree. The tree grows out of the ground and back into it, symbolizing a circle that never ends. From day one on A&M’s campus, every girl dreams of being walked under this tree by her love and asked THE QUESTION. It is said that whoever walks under the tree together will be with them forever. And that’s what happened to me!

    My fiance and I are both recent graduates of Texas A&M and are very involved with the traditions. The day before we were set to graduate, he set up this elaborate plan that involved all of our friends and our parents. No one told me and I had no idea what I was walking into. My parents and I were strolling the campus when my best friend (my MOH!) showed up and surprised me. She told me that we were having one last picture taking session before we were to both leave A&M (something we did all the time). I was so excited and we walked around taking pictures. Then we neared the building where the tree is, and I thought…maybe? But as we rounded the corner, no one was underneath the tree, and I was a bit sad, but so excited to be with my best friend. We took pictures at a popular statue that is close to the tree and she gave me a hug. Then, holding my arms she said “but I am not your surprise.” She turned me around and there was my fiance under the tree and all of our friends lining the sidewalk to get under the tree. And they all had roses and calla lilies (my favorite flowers!). I was crying my eyes out and shaking the entire time and even long after. I couldn’t quite hugging him. He asked me to be his wife and I said yes! Our friends all “Whooped!” and hugged us. It was so perfect and he had kept this secret since November (we got engaged in May)! He is so wonderful and is the love of my life. We would love to incorporate this adorable ring bearer bowl into our peacock themed April wedding!

    Best wishes,
    Kathleen

    My fiancé waited on standby for 9 hours at the airport this past Christmas just to propose to me in my hometown, Chicago. He almost didn’t make it due to the plethora of flight cancellations that day. Fate was on his side, and he got the VERY last seat on the VERY last flight to leave Sky Harbor (AZ) that night. I said my “YES” on Christmas Eve on the very top floor of the Sears Tower – a night I will never forget! It was absolutely perfect. I got my dream proposal, dream ring, and most importantly…the man of my dreams!

    This is intended to be a surprise gift for my son and his fiancee, who got engaged on the roof top of a swanky hotel in San Diego.. She was there visiting a friend and my son first flew home to Chicago from Seattle, where he and she both live. He then flew to San Diego, unbeknown to his fiance., He had planned the surprise in a rooftop cabana. Many of their closest friends had also flown there and were hiding in the other cabanas, waiting until they heard that the proposal and acceptance were a done deal. Then they partied after fist calling parents to tell them the news. I have been asked to procure the ring bearer pillow for a grandson to carry down the aisle. This idea seemed so unique and reusable after the wedding as a lovely keepsake.

    We got engaged the day before Thanksgiving 2005 and he used his University’s traditions as a background for the proposal and were married May 27, 2006. I’d love this bowl, I lose my jewelry a lot :(

    We got engaged outside the Milwaukee Public Market. It’s where we really got to know each other in the summer we first started dating. During a Saturday, early in our relationship it was kid’s day at the market. They had activities for the kids – we found some chalk and he wrote, “Gina + Mike.”

    Three years later he asked me to marry him – written out in sidewalk chalk outside the market. It lasted over a week and people who knew us and saw what was written would run into my fiancé’s office (across the street) to congratulate us.

    I am entering on behalf of my sister and future brother in law, they are to be married in September. Brian proposed to my sister on Christmas Eve, by having their 2 yr. old daughter hand my sister a small wrapped gift box that contained the ring inside of it.

    We aren’t engaged, but we’ve been looking around at rings. And who knew there were so many different options and considerations when looking into a ring! But what we’ve found to be most important is choosing a ring with a conflict free diamond, as well as recycled metals. Thats what my dream ring would consist of, and I love that Paloma’s Nest is eco-friendly as well. =)

    Dining hall at university in NJ where I was doing my master’s. It was more of a conversation that ended with a mutual proposal and acceptance after most students had left and we were about to be kicked out by the cleaners.

    Fiance and I got engaged on November 21, 2009 at Waterfront Park in Charleston, SC. He took me to dinner for my 26th birthday then walked down to the waterfront where he asked I wanted to be with him forever with his mother’s engagment ring and then I think he said will you marry me at somepoint. I was screaming so loud I never heard that part.

    In our living room!

    It was a total surprise! I had just returned from a business trip and found a note on the door which said “I have a surprise for you, just follow my kisses.”
    When I opened the door, I found trail of hershey’s kisses on the floor through the kitchen into the living room. In the living room I found a dozen red roses. As I opened the card nestled among the roses, rose petals fell down on me from above.

    The card on the flowers said “Now that I have kissed the ground you walk on and covered you with roses, Will you marry me?”

    My fiancee also had a friend there to snap some photos! He thought of everything!

    March 15, 2010. Having participated in the Disney College Program, I’d visited the Magic Kingdom MANY times, but that night was unlike any other visit. It was the first time I was able to share the magic with Boyfriend. We settled into a good spot in front of the castle to watch Wishes, my favorite Disney fireworks show. I was as giddy as could be, just to be there, with him! Then just as Wishes was about to begin, he made my wishes come true…

    Great giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity!
