    Homemade wedding favours, would you like these?

    Hi girlies i am thinking of having a small do, just close family and friends, around 16 people. The plan is to go for a posh meal in a beautiful restaurant after the ceremony, meal drinks etc. I still want to do the little bits, like favours and decorations, obv just on a much smaller scale.

    I was thinking of making homemade wedding favours, in the form of heart shaped shortbread, which j'adore cooking anyway, so i know i can do the baking part, but how would i present these? In a box? Cellophane? I also love the idea of doubling them up as place names and icing each persons name on them. How the chuff do i ice names? Help! And what do you think to the idea? On a budget so trying to be thrifty! xxxxxxxx

    wer making cupcakes for ours (i say we i mean me obv lol) and having them in clear boxes with a ribbon, can buy these in bulk on ebay for fairly cheap!!!  u could sue these to put the shortbread in? and have fancy ribbon with a tag on with their name?

    I think it's a lovely idea and I'd be happy to receive a favour like this.

    I had a heart shaped shortbread favour once, which was tightly wrapped in plastic wrapping, but I expect that these were bought in. If you're not using them as place names, you could get those cellophane bags, some come with a square of cardboard at the bottom to stand them up, and tie a pretty ribbon around it. I think it would be hard to see the iced name on it, though, if you did it this way.

    I'm no expert on icing, but I think you'd just need to practice, practice, practice!

    Silly question - do you buy the ribbon yourself and just tie a bow? Or is there some fancy way of doing it!?xx

    sounds lovely! I don't know how to do piping, I think you have to buy a special tool- why not "you tube" it?

    My friend did something similar... (I don't know if she is on Hitched I hope she doesn't mind me flashing a pic of these...)

    I like shortbread so yes please :)

     

    Icing their names and using them as placemarkers?  Nice idea.  Works fine for the 16 you mention but I'm not sure it would be practical for a larger wedding.

     

     

    Trust me i wouldnt be contemplating it if there were any more than 16 lol xxx

    I only discovered it a little while back, but I have found loads of useful things already. I am a bit addicted to looking through the catalogue if I'm being honest!

    For what it would cost you to make them once you have bought all the ingredients you could buy them, these are really cheap:
