Ladybird favours

Finding a ladybird is considered to be lucky and therefore ladybirds make popular favours as they are also thought to bring you good luck. Be it a small object, figurine or keyring. Ladybird favours take a number of forms and are suitable for most ocassions. They are commonly used as communion, baptism or graduation favours.

Keyrings come in silver, cream and blue and are easy to attach to a favour bag or place on a favour box. If you want to create a bigger centre piece display with your favours then a favour cake is a great idea. I have selected the version with a neutral white base but red, green, pink, lilac and yellow are also available depending on the colour theme of your event.

A favour cake is a great addition to any party from a birthday to a Baptism to a wedding. They make a great centre piece display and of course it’s a wonderful way to thank your guests for coming.

There are a few different ways you can make a favour cake;

With favour bags on a polystyrene tiered base. You could rent one or buy pre cut polystyrene and make your own.

This is an example of a finished favour cake made with favour bags, it contains 23 favour bags, this is a rough guide as bags vary in size.

Favour cake slices boxes on a round base which can also be tiered.

pink favour cake, cake slice boxes

This pink favour cake is created with 38 cake shaped favour boxes and is only £15.12, it comes in a range of colours.

A favour pyramid created with perspex favour boxes. Although other kinds of favour boxes can be used perspex are the sturdiest and best for this.

Once you’ve decided on your base, all that’s left is to decide on is the decoration and embellishments you’d like to use. You can find a great selection in our DIY department. And finally you need to decide on a sweet treat to pop inside. This is a very personal choice and lots of people decide on a candy that they themselves love. However, more traditionaly, sugared almonds were used, if you think these are slightly old fashioned you could opt for a tasty chocolate coated almond, these come in a huge range of flavours, from watermelon to ricotta and pear!

When you get married, for a lot of people the cake is the piece de resistence of the day so if you’re getting married in Italy then it really should be something that reflect the rest of day’s beauty and charm.italian wedding cake

We think these two huge Italian wedding cakes would make a massive impression, more a traditional pastry than cake but it looks absolutely divine non the less. They make me feel hungry just looking at them!

Basically they are huge cut sheets of pastry filled with delicious Italian puff pastry cream, dusted with icing and topped with an abundance of red fruits! A kind of take on the mille foglie.italian wedding cake

If it’s made you hungry too, don’t worry, here’s a great recipe or head down to a local Italian Patisserie!

Crystal favours are elegant and timeless and will give your favours that extra luxury feeling. Here I have selected 2 very similar favours, both are available as diy items or hand finished with a favour pouch or box and dragees.crystal flower with silver rings diy wedding favor We have a crystal flower with silver rings which is very economical and a matching crystal hearts with silver rings. 

The great thing about these 2 examples is that they can be used side by side, many people prefer to give a larger more important favour to parents, grandparents, godparents and witnesses and a smaller favour for the rest of their guests. This is a great way to make sure all your favours still match.crystal hearts and rings diy wedding favour

They are all made with Swarovski crystals and are encrusted with rhinestones. I have selected the versions with silver wedding rings but gold is also available. They could also be used for gold (50th) or silver (25th) wedding anniversary favours.crystal hearts and rosette favour pouch filled with dragees

As you can see they look stunning displayed on a typical Italian favour rosette flower. We can change the colour if required on request.perspex favour box with crystal flower

Or on a perspex favour box. The larger crystal hearts could be placed on a larger perspex box and more dragees place inside.crystal flower with favour bag and dragees

Alternatively the smaller crystal flower and rings could be attached to a favour bag and the larger crystal hearts could be placed alongside the favour bag in a gift box.

This favour just oozes class and sophistication. It’s simple but elegant and the the taupe organza ribbon combined with a finer cream satin ribbon make a beautiful contrast with the white dragees that have been chosen and blend harmoniously with the silver heart pendant.
