I love weddings. Really. And I seem to have hit that age where there is now a second round.
It can, to be honest, a little frustrating at times to be making all these beautiful wedding favours, and then not getting to see them on the table, not really find out whether they were a hit or not.
But this weekend I got to go to a wedding where our lollies were the centrepiece of the tables. Stunningly presented little bonbonniere for the guests, and while I grant you my obvious and unsurprising bias, they really did look awesome. Understated, classic, and a touch of real fun in a classy setting.
We got some lovely feedback, but the best was one from one of the waitresses, who saw me taking these pics and said "Aren't they awesome? I do so many weddings. These are the cutest favours I've ever seen."
Those are the moments that make candy making worthwhile. To that waitress, whoever you are, you made my night.
