Wedding Favors/Thoughtful Wedding Party Gifts

Posted by Margie Espe on 7/21/2014
Wedding Favors/Thoughtful Wedding Party Gifts

As you plan your wedding, favors add a personal touch to the event. It is something the guests take away and will remember. A thoughtful wedding favor is always a perfect choice. A scrumptious truffle tucked into a beautiful favor box is exquisite, as well as tasty. Regional favorites are a hit as well. A sampling of saltwater taffy, local maple syrup, soaps or even candles made locally packaged beautifully in a cello bag tied with a coordinating ribbon of your wedding colors is the perfect touch. 

Another idea is to leave Thank You Gifts at the hotel for your wedding party and special family and friends who have traveled to be at your special day. Something as simple as a box of chocolate covered coffee beans for the adults (for the trip home) and local treats for the kids, are very thoughtful ideas. If you have a larger budget, a basket filled with items to complement your wedding theme is amazing. For a winter chic wedding, a basket with a cashmere blanket, a collection of teas or chocolates, and a copy of your favorite book add that personal, special touch. For summertime, a red checker patterned napkin inside a basket of picnic items such as local sodas, popcorn and fruits really set the tone for your country wedding. See more of our wedding favor ideas/resources on our Pinterest Wedding Favors Board.

Macaroons - A Delicate Confection

Posted by Margie Espe on 4/11/2014 to News

A macaron is a sweet meringue-based confection made with eggs, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring . The macaron is commonly filled with ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two biscuits. The name is derived from the Italian word macarone, maccarone or maccherone, the italian meringue. The only thing that makes these delicate confessions even more delicious, is to present them in a beautiful box with a custom tray. Things really do taste better when they look pretty! Macarons deserve a special presentation. We offer beautiful macaron window boxes in  brown, blue, pearlescent, gold, pink, red, and white.
