my saturday mornings

Aren’t weekends just the best? My favourite part is always Saturday morning. I have all the time in the world to enjoy a cup of tea and toast while reading my book or a magazine. Sometimes I sit in the sun on the steps near my front door. There is no need to rush, there is nowhere to be. I can breathe and enjoy the start of the day. Le sigh…

{favour inspiration} teacups + succulents

I’m a huge fan of non-edible favours for weddings, and as far as non-edible wedding favours go I think mini succulents in vintage teacups pretty much takes the cake. These favours are perfect keepsakes of your celebration and they also suit many different styles of wedding – from rustic barn to glam garden party, the teacup succulent is just perfection.

Finding the number of teacups you need may be a challenge – be prepared to scour many vintage and second hand shops in the lead up to your wedding and get family and friends on board for The Great Teacup Hunt. It also pays to do some research on good local nurseries in your area to supply succulents in bulk, rather than paying a fortune buying them from large commercial nurseries. This is a favour that requires a lot of effort but it sure would be worth it to give your guests such a gorgeous and thoughtful keepsake.

{wedding favour inspiration} vintage-style handkerchiefs

I love the idea of giving vintage-style handkerchiefs as wedding favours, and if you want to add a few vintage-inspired details into your wedding but don’t want to go overboard then these little hankies are perfect and oh so sweet. I’ve been playing around with some favour designs which incorporate¬† handkerchiefs and this is my favourite. It’s a two-fold gift for your wedding guests, as they get a box of sweet treats as well as a pretty vintage-style hankie – a lovely keepsake to remind them of your wedding day.
