Wedding Favours

I actually managed to get the favours more or less done last month through a combination of browsing through my favourite warehouse for oddities and rampaging through a website that specialises in chocolates and sweets suitable for occasions. Now I have a large box full of chenille bags full of sweets that I can’t touch, and a couple of boxes of additional sweets to go on the tables that I also can’t touch.

So if I’m going to be tortured by this strain on my sweet tooth (and yes, as a diabetic that makes it a double strain), I might as well share the fun.

Knowing we have people with specific dietary requirements I knew I had to make sure that everything was vegetarian so that they could all be enjoyed to a greater or lesser extent – so that was a guiding light when choosing the contents. The Love Hearts were an easy choice to go for, and I’m expecting a brisk movement of those to purses and pockets for later consumption or the bribing of small children. I also have a rather large number of them left over, so I’ll likely take them with me to add to tables later in the evening. The chocolate coins – well, they’re shiny and I’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t get a little frisson of fun unpicking the foil; and the praline dice reflect my long-term love of games – and in particular, role-play games such as Dungeons & Dragons. With the wedding taking place in a castle, it seemed only appropriate really…
