When I started this blog, I only thought that my only followers would be my Mom and Dad (he follows the blog.. can you believe that?) and my little sister… and although they are regular supporters of my wild and crazy antics (I use “wild and crazy” VERY loosely!) I never imagined that my friends would read this blog and that I would ACTUALLY meet new people through this platform! Today I want to thank the little community we have created! Thank you SOOOO much for all the LOVE and SUPPORT that you have given me and my new business and blog. We have 200 followers on the blog today!
I love saying thank you. I think that any event is incomplete without a “thank you”. I think it is important to think of all the people that are going to be standing with you as you say your vows, blow out your birthday candles or open your shower presents. There is nothing like a little token or a note to say that each guest is an integral part of their big day!
Here are some ideas that I think are just fantastic!

How many of you played with cootie catchers as kids? Well now, you can give back the joy of this fun break time game to the your guests! Inside the cootie catcher are little questions and facts about the bride and groom and they can be used as a form of entertainment for guests to get to know the others sitting at their table!
Another great little favour/ game

These crosswords are custom made and are genuine crosswords that you would find in the newspaper. I think this can also double as a wedding game, played throughout the wedding/shower and the first one to finish it would win a prize!
Something I came across when I went to a wedding show recently is SEED PAPER! YA.. give a thank you note that GIVES BACK! All you have to do is plant the card and come summer, beautiful flowers grow in reminder of your loved one’s special day!

I know a lot of people think that favours are a waste of money… and they can be.. if you buy something you KNOW your guests are really not going to be interested in… the way to counter that is FOOD! Little nibblers make great favours and your guests try something new, or an old favourite or something that undoubtedly part of the couple’s personality!
I think a little bit of thinking and creativity, you can make inexpensive favours look like a million bucks! Packaging has tons to do with it!
Wrap it up nicely or add a personalized tag and your favours go from ordinary to… a little piece of you!
and my personal favourite and probably the cutest thing EVER! Hot chocolate mix in regular icing piping bags with a label on it!
I wanna DIY this NOW!!!
