We have fallen in love with this boutique collection of delicate laser-cut wedding stationery from The Hummingbird Card Company (and what a cute name!). These wedding stationery sets have the most intricate detail and would really impress your wedding guests if one of these arrived in the post. The Hummingbird Card Company has a range of boutique laser-cut wedding stationery, from place cards to wedding invitations and even table numbers and table plans. The laser cutting technique allows the pattern to be burnt away from the card, leaving the most beautiful pretty lace-like pattern.

Bah Humbugs Retro Sweets

Bah Humbugs Retro Sweet Bags

When was the last time you dipped a lollypop into sherbet or sucked on a lemon bon bon?

This week Bah Humbugs sent us a lovely bag of old-time retro sweets that had us reminiscing about the last time we blew a bubble-gum bubble and let popping candy explode in our mouths!

Bah Humbugs Retro Sweets

For those of you who are looking for wedding favours, how about letting your wedding guests reminisce too with these sweets from Bah Humbugs. You could give each of your guests a selection of retro sweets – Dip Dabs, Black Jacks, Cola Bottles, Love Hearts, Popping Candy, Fruit Salads, Mojos, Anglo Bubbly, Parma Violets, Double Dips, Sweet Necklaces, Refreshers etc, or why not create a sweetie table by filling big jars with these sweets and giving each guest a paper bag so they can go and help themselves; like buying a bag of penny sweets!

Another idea to make these sweets a real talking point would be to fill different size jars, vases, dishes etc with the sweets and use them as your table decorations. That way people around the table will be able to help themselves and will be sharing nostalgic stories from ‘back in the day’ over the table.

Bah Humbugs is an online sweet shop. They stock a huge selection of nostalgic sweets, Retro Sweets, Gift Sweet Hampers, Lollipops and Jelly Beans.

To find out more about Bah Humbugs and for a trip down memory lane take a browse through their online sweet shop www.bahhumbugs.com.

Box of Demarquette Chocolates

Demarquette Fine Chocolates – Product of the Week

If you are looking for a wedding favour to wow your guests then take a look at Demarquette chocolates. If you love chocolate, and let’s face it most of us do, then you and your wedding guests will love the Demarquette chocolate range.

Demarquette – Fine Chocolates is a family run business founded by British born Master Chocolatier Marc Demarquette in 2005. They specialise in the artisan production and sale of luxury hand-made fine chocolates and are winners of 5 Gold Medals – 2009 Great Taste Awards.

The Great British Orchard - Fruit Caramel Creams - Demarquette Chocolates

The Demarquette chocolates that we sampled were ‘The Great British Orchard – Fruit Caramel Creams’. The design of these hand-made chocolates is exquisite, with each half sphere-shaped chocolate hand-painted with a marbled effect on the outside, like nothing we have ever seen before. Each chocolate is made with milk or dark chocolate and filled with a creamy caramel made with Hampshire and Cornish cream and fresh & ripe fruit, giving an amazingly fruity taste.

Box of Demarquette Chocolates

The Great British Orchard range come in a beautiful red presentation box with the British Isles on the front and are tied with racing green ribbon. If you are having a traditional style or British-themed wedding, The Great British Orchard range would be perfect as favours for your guests. You could have a little stack of these chocolates on each table for your guests to enjoy with their coffee after the wedding breakfast.

At £16 for a box of 12 or £36 for 36 you’re probably not going to give your guests a box each, but you could always split the boxes and give each guest a beautifully wrapped individual chocolate.

Demarquette have a wide range of hand-made chocolates that would really wow your wedding guests. For more information about the Demarquette range take a look at their website www.demarquette.co.uk.

Biscuiteers Heart Wedding Favour Biscuit

Biscuiteers Wedding Favour Biscuits

If you are looking for wedding favours but want something different from sugared almonds in pretty voile bags, well we have the perfect alternative.

Everyone loves a biscuit, so how about giving each of your wedding guests a beautifully iced biscuit that they can enjoy with their coffee after your wedding breakfast?

Biscuiteers Wedding Favours

Biscuiteers wedding favours are traditional baked biscuits in either vanilla or chocolate flavour and come in all shapes and sizes, from letters to hearts, top hats to bouquets of flowers, and the team at Biscuiteers can even make personalised biscuit favours, bespoke to your wedding.

We were lucky enough to try some samples of the Biscuiteers wedding favour biscuits and we have to say, we have never tasted biscuits so good!

Biscuiteers Heart Wedding Favour Biscuit

We were sent biscuits in the shape of a wedding cake, dove and a heart, all of which came in the most beautiful packaging. The wedding cake was in a clear cellophane bag tied with Biscuiteers ribbon, the dove was in a beautiful box with a clear lid so you could see straight in, and the heart, well…this got us all excited! It came in one of the Biscuiteers’ stunning white gift boxes and it was beautifully presented, wrapped in tissue paper – it had us in great suspense at the anticipation of what was in the box, and there was this beautiful heart shaped biscuit with gorgeous floral icing on the top.

The hand-iced biscuits look so pretty that we didn’t know if we should eat them or keep them…although temptation got the better of us.

Forget petit fours, get your guests talking over their coffee with one of the Biscuiteers’ fabulous wedding favour biscuits.
