If you were paying...

IF you were paying somebody to cater a bridal shower and the caterer took it upon herself to make cloth napkins with handmade rings with ribbons (20 of them), included in the price you were quoted.  What would you think?  Do you think it's nice or overkill on behalf of the caterer?

I know the bride somewhat and think she's a great person and wanted this to be so special for her but, have only met the woman paying twice.  I don't want her to think I'm stepping on toes.  I had most of the fabric, all the ribbon materials and paid $2 for rings, all the thread.  I think I put about $12 extra into them.  Everyone I've showed loves them.

Thank You.  The bride is somebody I know somewhat, and really like her.  Have only met the lady paying the bill twice.  Don't want her fell as if I'm stepping on toes.

I would think you were going the extra mile to make sure I had a special day, i would greatly appreciate it. There aren't enough sweet people in the world.

I would think that you went above and beyond. I always give positive feedback if I get more than I thought I was getting. Word of mouth is the best advertisement. I think she will tell her friends how good you did to make the shower beautiful.

I would think it was nice and that she was giving you an extra special touch so you will remember and use her next time you have an event.
