8 Delightful Hot Chocolate Favors for Weddings

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? For me, it was a total transformation of fall to winter. We were hit by the massive snowstorm and had a total of about 8″ of glistening snow which fell steadily for about twenty-four hours. It was so beautiful; the first snowfall always is. The beginning of the snow-filled holiday season always gets me in an instant cozy mood. It doesn’t take long to find me unpacking slippers, fuzzy socks, blankets, and holly jolly decorations faster than you can say hey Em, coffee is ready. (And believe me, I come running.) Anyway, with the frigid temps around here we wanted to warm you up with some hot chocolate favors for weddings, bridal showers, and holiday parties. We’ve found hot cocoa favors on a stick, in a cone, inside an ornament, in a jar, a tube, a bag, and a box. We’ve even found some cute wooden spoons for stirring. So, if it’s hot chocolate favors you’re after, you’ll find it right here! And… if you’re feeling extra creative, head down to number eight for an amazing DIY tutorial we found. Happy hot-chocolating & enjoy!

Winter Wedding Confetti — #HANDMADEADAY

If you’re planning a winter wedding, you’ll love this tossing confetti from Flowerfetti! Tossing confetti is given to guests to toss for your walk down the aisle as newlyweds. Not all confetti is the same: Flowerfetti is biodegradable (unlike rice) and offers a delightful holiday-inspired fragrance. This specific confetti uses roses (a symbol for love), lavender (devotion), and rosemary (remembrance), along with fragrant cedar greenery, berries, and ivy. This confetti is perfect for a winter wedding send-off! It is fabric safe, eco-friendly, and photographs beautifully, leaving petal strewn paths behind.


Winter Wedding Confetti

We recommend filling petal cones with the confetti and pass it out to guests before the ceremony. You can get petal cones here.

Plaid Pocket Squares for Groomsmen – Fall Weddings

Hi, lovelies, Emma here! Everywhere I look, it’s plaid this, plaid that. And I’m honestly loving it because it means fall is finally here! It’s October 1st so I finally stopped my stubborn streak and admitted summer is over, breaking out my heavy coat and opting for shoes with warm, cozy socks. I’ve been enjoying the crisp fall air and burning my fair share of pumpkin spice candles. I’ve also been sipping on many a hot apple cider and browsing tons of handmade finds. So, when I spotted these tartan plaid pocket squares over at Aristocrafts, I had a hunch it going to be today’s #HANDMADEADAY pick. A pocket square — like this one — make a great groomsmen gift because they can wear them together in your photos and coordinate with your theme. A guy could always use a pocket squarre — especially one that is monogrammed, as an extra-special gift. Take a look: Monica from Aristocrafts is so talented!
