My cousin, Katie, is getting married next month! Unfortunately, since the wedding is in Wisconsin (I’m in San Diego) I can’t be there, but I will attend in spirit! Katie asked me if I would make her wedding favors. Knowing how significant every decision in wedding planning is, I am so flattered and honored!
When we spoke about what she would like, she just said, “I’m pretty flexible as long as it is fall-ish. Just like a leaf shape or something.” Great! I love design projects, so I started thinking.
First, I looked at her invitation. It has gorgeous, traditional autumn colors. Incorporating them with a leaf shape would be fun. Plus I have a great fragrance on hand I’ve been dying to use.
One thing I asked her was, “how many guests?” She has 175! Wow. So this would have to be an efficient process, too. No 4 cavity mold action for this project!
To incorporate the colors, I decided to use a few of the metallic micas from Brambleberry. The gold, copper, and cappucino would be perfect. I’ll use them to make a marbled sheet that I’ll cut with mini cookie cutters into leaves and acorns. Finally, I’ll scent them with Candied Apple fragrance and put 2 soaps into little organza bag for each guest (that will be 350 soaps! Gulp!).
I ran it by Katie, and she liked it!
Next – gather supplies and find trays that are large, flexible, and totally flat. Tune in next Thursday to see how I will make them! See you then!
