Happy Friday! We spotted these shortbread teabag cookies via Pinterest from Le Petrin (we translated it here) and couldn’t wait to share. If you’re planning a tea themed bridal shower or wedding, these are a must-have for guests. For the base, Le Petrin uses shortbread flavored with lemon but mentions you can use any flavor you love best (like classic shortbread, almond, vanilla, coffee…) She suggests cutting a tea bag shape from cardboard and using it as your template for the dough, making sure to add a hole at the top. Bake cookies, dip in chocolate, and add a tea tag! Read on to see more…

Last week, we talked about how to avoid wedding favor mistakes and showed you examples of favors that guests will love. Another notable favor idea is a custom gift, like a cd wedding favor (or DVD) for guests to enjoy at home. Consider your playlist on a CD or a special ‘thank you’ video made by you burned onto a keepsake DVD for guests. The favor is more memorable and likely to be saved for years. Once you’ve selected a CD or DVD favor to use, wrap it up in style with the ruffle CD/DVD favor case crafted with love by EITS Art, Featured Artisan in The Marketplace. Read on to find out more…
