Blue French Macaron

Blue French Macaron

I have to follow-up on the previous post about my sister’s wedding favors. I finally have a photo to post of these fabulous French macarons in their clear boxes. The color was so saturated and they tasted so great! Thank you Maison Burdisso.

Can't deal with this mini wedding cake!!!

Can't deal with the faux wedding cake from Sugar Shack!

The bridal event was a huge success! Sunday we showcased wedding favors – including our favorite  hear-shaped birdseed tree charm favors. We decorated a centerpiece for our table with them and they looked so cute with lovebirds in our tree.

The other big fave is our pinwheels and pinwheel cupcake toppers. They are sooooo cute. Our friend at Sugar Shack, Sarah De Lachica, brought her yummy cupcakes and displayed the pinwheel toppers.  We also showed cootie catchers which were popular. Apparently Martha Stewart showed these in her latest magazine. We love them and you use them for so many things:  do a program for the ceremony, a menu or trivia about the bride and groom (that would work well for shower favors).

The other thing we are loving in a big way are the ceramic birds eggs in nests. These can be used as placecards as well as wedding favors and are just so sweet. We love these on the tablescape and they complete the lovebird theme. You can customize them with any word you want, names or date of the ceremony. This is so much fun and the designer who makes these has the best ideas in ceramic. We have more coming from her so look out for that.

Another favorite was the bachelorette party in a box. This is so great for the bad girl bachelorette who wants to skip the tacky stuff. We love the table topics to go in the bachelorette edition.

Thank you so much Sari Motley Cosmetics for opening your fab space to the lovely brides-to-be and their entourages. We had a great time and really enjoyed it.

We are so excited to announce that Lavish will be participating in our first bridal event here in Houston this weekend! We will be showing the cutest wedding favors I have ever seen and awesome gift collections in our signature boxes. We are planning to showcase a bachelorette box and also a bridesmaids thank you gift box as well. Can’t wait to report on the event as we have had such a huge number of RSVPs for the event that we actually had to hire a valet. Yikes! Bridezillas bring it on. The event is this Sunday, May 17th starting at noon at the Sari Motley Cosmetics studio. Her studio is located at 1724 Marshall Street. Contact jennifer@lavishgifts.com if you need info!

Marcus and I are so excited for my sister Aimee, of Deuce Creative fame. She will be married next week here in Houston and its going to be fabulous. Aimee and I were looking for a VERY last minute wedding takeaway for guests at the reception. Enter Jackie Burdisso of Maison Burdisso. She does gorgeous french-inspired foods and is famous around these parts for her French macarons. I met Jackie and first tasted her macarons at the Midtown Farmer’s Market located at T’afia, Monica Pope’s restaurant. The market features only the best of fresh produce and some prepared foods and cheeses. Jackie does her confections of perfection in a rainbow of colors, and her flavors are often exotic. She often has blueberry, blood orange and tiramisu as well as standbys like pistachio, coffee and vanilla bean.

The lightbulb came on to give a macaron as a favor for guests at Aimee’s wedding. But half the fun of French macarons is looking at them. So we came up with the idea to have an array of flavors and colors for guests, all in clear plastic boxes. When I spoke with Jackie she showed me the perfect size and it even has a white organza bow on top! Tres jolie. Now it’s just T minus 8 days till the wedding!
