Wedding Flowers and Favors

          Giving wedding favors is an age-old tradition that has evolved over the years. I always believed that favors should be unique and meaningful to the bride and her family. Favors should complement the theme of the wedding and they can also be tasteful additions to the table. These particular favors were created for a fall wedding. The reception took place at an elegant hotel.

I took each lacquered jewel box and  added a tassel for elegance.  A tulle bag filled with sugar covered almonds called confetti and tied with a gold string was placed inside each box together with a tag indicating the couple names and wedding date.  Each box was wrapped in tulle and tied with jewels.  The jewel tones of the boxes reflected the lights of the chandeliers and complimented the bold fall colors of the flowers. 

A favor was placed at each place setting.

Simply spectacular!

Beach Theme Decor

Whether you are looking to decorate a summer cottage or a year round home with the beach theme, the kitchen is a perfect place to start. Use nautical colors – such as tan, yellow, navy, and white color scheme. A tiny splash of red and orange can also be added for a pop of color. Display a set of nautical themed dishes, seashells in a jar and kitchen towels.
Do not overdue.


These kitchen towels are hand-crafted by me and available for sale.  Please inquire for price.
