I'm sick of favors already!

So we finally settled on something. I'm serious this time. Vintage shakers were too messy. Bonsais too time consuming. Taffy too boring. Macaroons too finicky. No, these favors are genius. They smell like a garden in the spring, taste like a mouthful of heaven, have the consistency of a sky full of gooey clouds, and best of all, the lovelies at Whimsy & Spice are making them for us (because let's be honest here, the closest I belong to a kitchen is my lazy butt watching food network from the couch).Selfishly enough, I'm secretly hoping some of our guests leave theirs behind so I can gather them up and stuff myself with sweet rosy goodness on my honeymoon. Man, I'm sick.

Can I come to your wedding? Or can I at least get some 'spare' favour sent my way? And how did you know about my marshmallow obsession?

Toodles! xx

So... Lovely sister of mine. What flavor are you going to have? I say any but the maple. But those vanilla rose-scented heart ones sound pretty good. So do their pepper rose thumbprint cookies... Or any of the sweets from them. Ya know, my birthday is coming up..... And I do so love sweets.... Or a visit from you guys... We have a couch and a ginormous pile of giant stuffed animals in the corner of re living room. You'd get squishy kitty to squeeze as long as you were here. Along with the fact mom is making a tummy dinner for me... I miss you!

Amber... again... said...

And I can't type on my phone. It's supposed to be the not re and yummy not tummy.

Amanda said...

Yeah, because I was just about to ask what the f*ck a "tummy dinner" is. ;)

Well since you want to go and ruin all the fun surprises- they're the rosy vanilla ones. But not hearts. You know how I feel about hearts.

Now ssshhhhhh! Don't tell anyone, or else...

This sound so tasteful! I think edible wedding favors are one of the most ideal favors that guests can't say no to taking them away.
