Do me a favour?!
I was like an elf in Santa's work shop last night! I made up 22 beautiful (if I do say so myself) favours for the wedding rehearsal meal, ahead of my brother's big day next Friday! I made them from squares of muslin fabric, little gardening fibre pots and stuffed them with a red, white an blue lollypop, a few Werthers Original sweets to suck on, while we wait for the arrival of the Bride and a packet of tissues in case anyone gets emotional during the ceremony!
I used an elastic band to hold the muslin in place, wrapped red, blue and white twine round it and attached a little paper label, adored with a bow in various patriotic patterns! My miniature stamp set was just right for the lettering!
A perfect little package for the big day!
I have got all sorts of bits to pack in the suitcase for the rehearsal meal, which I will share in another post! It is all a vintage British and American theme!
The Bride and Groom get an extra present in theirs! Personalised wedding shoe stickers from Nutmeg at notonthehighstreet!
