Wedding Favours

I have been busy making some wedding samplers for a member of DH's family which will take place on 14th October. The significance of the Mars bars is that the Groom's surname is the same the chocolate (except with a double 'r' ) and his nickname is even "Mars-bar" so the favours just had to be thus, didn't they? I have had to make 50 in total for all the people attending the sit-down meal after the ceremony which is taking place in Arundel on the South Coast. I have also made 2 special ones for the Mothers (of the Bride and of the Groom) which have a larger red rose instead of the small gold roses you can see - and also the ribbon is larger and is a sheer voile with gold threads it - they look really good (even if I say so myself).
The next task is to make a small circle of silk flowers (reds and pinks) which will sit on top of the wedding cake. I also have to write out the little place cards using an ink pen and my best handwriting, so I think I will try to do that next week.
It is going to be a very happy, but also a really sad day for us all, as DH will not be there in person, but will, of course, be there in spirit.
Love and Peace

They are adorable Alison!! How amazing that a groom can have such and ideal 'favor' name. Look forward to seeing the ones you are making for the moms.
Thank you for the lovely magazine. Like I told you - I'm already picking out patterns to use for Christmas.
You are so right - we're anxiously awaiting the start of our new project.
Have a good week.
Hugs, Margaret

How wonderful of you to help out the bride and groom! I had so much help from my friends when my dd married five years ago and will never be able to repay their kindness. :D

The wedding favours look great (and tasty!), and your back garden is absolutely beautiful!
