Treats Allowed Sweet Table

Treats Allowed Sweet Treats and Wedding Favours

Giving wedding favours to your guests as a thank you for spending the day with you has been a tradition for a long time. However, a current trend is to provide a sweet treat table for your guests to help themselves to, rather than providing wedding favours. Treats Allowed offers the most exquisite array of luxury sweet treats and chocolates, as well as cakes and biscuits. Their luxury range of unforgettable chocolate is handmade in the UK.

We sampled some of the items they offer and they blew us away. Not only did they look incredible, they all tasted amazing. And the fudge… Wow! You MUST try the fudge!

Their treats are perfect for creating a really special sweet treat or dessert table at your wedding. Imagine the look on your guests’ faces when they see the delights!

I am naturally very pale skinned and have had nightmares with tanning products in the past (I have tried lots). However, I am completely sold on the Skinny Tan products. The application is so easy, it is impossible to leave a streaky finish, it smells incredible and gives the most amazing natural looking tan finish.
