Write one to your soon-to-be or consider giving these as unique wedding invitations, favors or thank you cards to guests!  I mean really, who wouldn’t love to receive one of these darling treasures?

Here’s how it works:  You write a letter and it is transcribed onto tiny stationary with a magical transcription device.  The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a wax seal.  It is put in a sturdy mailer for shipping.”Leafcutter Designs

Bathing Beauties, Get Frosted!

…With Cupcake Bath Bomb Favors By Bubbles & Beauties!

This past weekend, my sister and I hosted a bridal shower for our little sister.  Now that it’s over, I can’t wait to start sharing all of the details with you! 

To begin my happy little week of show and tell, allow me to first share with you the super sweet shower favors…each guest received a  Cupcake Bath Bomb from Bubbles & Beauties!

Nikol Johnson, creator and founder of Bubbles & Beauties, is seriously just as sweet as her cupcakes!  She actually customized each one for us, in the bridal shower colors and also in my sister’s favorite Pink Sugar scent.  She really made them so special, I can’t thank her enough!

When we received our shipment of cupcake bath bombs, they smelled soooo good, but since they looked like actual real cupcakes, I wanted to eat one!  Fear not my fine feathered friends, I refrained from eating the favors.  I was so happy with the great quality though, not to mention the ingredients ~ including mango butter, almond oil, French clay and natural salts.  Yes, it sounded quite heavenly!

I knew I had a couple “regrets” as rsvp’s, so I was sneaky (ssshh) and took one of the favors into the tub with me, tried it and experienced my own soothing bath – which after all the planning, was definitely in order!  Aaahh yes…life was good.  Hey, a girl’s gotta pamper herself once in a while, right? 

These cupcake bath bombs were a huge hit at the shower.  Everyone loved them!  I’m very pleased we decided to give them out.  If you’re looking for bridal shower favors sure to impress, these definitely did the job.  Actually, I think these would also make luscious little bridesmaids gifts as well- or a great gift for any occasion, for that matter!

They come hand-made in several different colors and scents, all ready to spoil you!  A few of my personal favorites aside from the Pink Sugar include Fresh Lavender, Lime Cooler, Apple Mango, Chocolate Indulgence, Honey Almond, Strawberries & Champagne, Lemongrass & Sage and Coconut & Cream.  But they’re all so tempting!

To get frosted, click HERE or on banner above.  Also, be sure to head on over to their sister sites ~ Fresh Beauty Studio, A Pretty Event and Fresh Beauty & The Baby.

Keep checking back, I’ll be posting more pictures and details from the bridal shower this week…yay!

…Less Is More With Affordable Decor!

Earlier this week, on the OneWed.com wedding blog, “Savvy Scoop“, I decided to throw some ideas out there to help you cut down on your floral costs.  Brides, if you’re looking for fun, affordable decor ideas for your wedding day, head over and read my guest blog entry by clicking HERE

 

Go on…save yourself some money, honey!  You can even let your wedding decor double as favors for guests.  How’s that for killing two pieces of wedding cake with one bite?  Wait – did I just mention wedding cake?  Whoopsie daisies!  Sorry, for some reason I always have wedding cake on the brain.  I can’t help it.  Happy planning!
