Blue and Lavender Wedding Decorations and Favors
Blue Fabric-Wrapped Favor
This romantic box is swathed in organdy and finished with ribbon and a monogram sticker.
Buttons make charming closures: Punch holes in the box's lid for the button, slip wire through, and fasten on the underside. Then, tie a ribbon to the button's base, loop it around the box, and wrap to secure.
Favors and seating cards function as one. Place truffles or any small favors in boxes, and wrap in solid and patterned papers. Print names and table numbers onto adhesive-backed paper, cut out, and affix to tops.
Tassel-Top Favor Box
A tiny tassel makes opening this box especially fun. The wide, striped fabric around the box has been trimmed with pinking shears at the sides.
Miniature Flower Pots
Demure and delicate, African violets are pretty little packages and, with minimal effort, can make a dazzling display. Simply slip the potted plants into panettone molds, cluster on three-tiered plate stands or let stand solo, and tuck a handwritten note inside.
These favors are decorated with elongated letters. Print monogram onto rectangular papers; trim with scalloping scissors. Wrap cardboard cylinders with layers of tissue paper; top with monogrammed paper, and secure with double-sided tape. Tie one end with rickrack. Fill with candy, and tie off.
These whimsical dragee cones standing in a galvanized tray will delight even adults.
Bird's Nest Candy
In these lovely favors, sugar-coated Jordan almonds masquerade as robins' eggs in a delicate faux nest; parchment paper threaded among them acts as a simple place card. The almonds are available from confectioners in a range of colors; the nests are from a floral-supply company. Cut 3/4-inch-wide strips of paper long enough to reach across a nest, and write a name on each strip, finishing the ends in an inverted V.
A wreath of blue hydrangeas framing one magnificent initial adorns a tree. This is a perfect decoration to enhance the natural beauty of a garden wedding.
