Now I know what you may be thinking – toffee apples are more ‘five year-old’s birthday party’ than chic wedding favour, but this classic treat has undergone a makeover. Think non-traditional toffee apples dipped in thick caramel and topped with choc chips, crushed nuts or pastel sprinkles – wrapped up in clear cellophane and tied with a cute tag and you have a pretty amazing wedding favour. And don’t think that your event needs to be carnival-themed or that your toffee apples should sit alongside bags of popcorn and fairy floss for you to give these delightful treats to your guests. Gourmet toffee apples fit in perfectly with casual, rustic weddings or as a playful touch to more formal affairs, and I’d love to see more of them in creative, handmade celebrations!

I recently had the pleasure of styling a favour station for Starcom MediaVest, for their annual Starcom-a-palooza (a thank-you and networking event for staff and clients). The lovely folks at Starcom work really hard but they also know how to party – I think I had just as much fun as they did! I designed a retro carnival inspired favour station, filled with lots of gorgeous and yummy take-home treats for guests like creaming soda jelly beans, cotton candy jelly beans, wizz fizz and butterscotch popcorn. As well as fun details like retro striped paper straws. By the end of the night there were no more carnival treats in sight on the table, which is what I love to see! Here are a few shots of the favour station – enjoy! (All printables are by Hermia’s Wishes)
