Wedding Charm Packaging

Friday, August 14th, 2015

We have just received our new packaging for our wedding charm designs.

Previously we always packaged them in pretty organza pouches and then wrapped them in tissue paper securing them with a cute floral label.

Although we liked our previous packaging the tissue paper was time consuming to fold neatly so we looked for an alternative.

We stumbled upon these cute candy striped sweetie bags and thought they would be ideal and perfect for our charms so now we still use the organza pouches but wrap them in the sweetie bags and secure them with our labels.

I’m sure you will agree they look pretty and suit our new colourful logo.

All our wedding charms will be packaged this way including our wedding bouquet photo frame charms and our lucky sixpence wedding charms.

Ideas For The Wedding Send Off!

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

What are you planning for your grand exit after the festivities have ended, or you are leaving the church.

Most churches prefer you not to throw paper confetti due to the clean afterwards and rice confetti can be deadly for birds so here are a few alternatives.

Bird Seed Wedding 'Confetti'

Bird Seed Wedding ‘Confetti’

Bird seed is a great green alternative to traditional confetti and whats more the local bird population will clean it up for you.

The diy tutorial for making these pretty confetti packets can be found on The Pretty Blog.

Bubbles Wedding 'Confetti'

Bubbles Wedding ‘Confetti’

A great photo opportunity is to use wedding bubbles as your send off, the bubbles floating in the air around the bride and groom would make a beautiful photo.

 

Wedding Sparklers

Wedding Sparklers

For a wedding at night or a winter wedding a fantastic idea is wedding sparklers.

They look perfect personalised with the bride and groom name and wedding date.

Wedding Ribbon Wands

Wedding Ribbon Wands

If you would prefer your guest not to throw anything at you then another idea is to give each guest a ribbon wand to wave as you leave the church.

These wands are available from Craft Up Your Life and are available in many colour ways.

Petal Confetti

Petal Confetti

Another natural idea is real petal confetti, maybe tie it in with your bouquet flowers.

These are available from Shropshire Petals.

Pom Pom 'Confetti'

Pom Pom ‘Confetti’

And finally a fun idea, throwing wool pom poms, they can be made in any colour way to tie in with your colour scheme and as they are soft they won’t hurt when thrown.

Patchwork Vintage Chair

Monday, August 10th, 2015

When I am not working on Flutterby Weddings I still like to be creative in my free time.

I recently inherited a Lloyd Loom style chair which needed renovating, I painted it in Deeply Plum Statement Emulsion paint from Wilkinsons I then coated it in satin varnish to protect the paint and left it to dry while worked on the cushion.

I really wanted the cushion to have a vintage feel but I also wanted to use modern fabrics so I designed a crazy patch work pattern. I collected together lots of fat quarters in purple, dark blue, coral, burnt orange, red, grey, black and green. I choose motifs which featured animals, birds, flora and spots and stripes to create an eclectic feel. It took a long time to complete it as I patchworked it by hand but I am really pleased with the finished chair, it now sits proudly in our conservatory.
