Inspired by the romance of the ballet, we created these girly favors with dotted tulle, velvet ribbon and French rose candies! They’d be perfect for a bridal shower or a white loft-style wedding. Your guests will be charmed for sure!

You will need: French rose candies · 1 yard of 108″ wide, plain or dotted tulle for about 10 boxes · cardboard boxes · 4 yards (for 10 boxes) of narrow velvet ribbon · white tissue paper · tape · scissors


Step One. Fill boxes with the candy tins.

Step Two. Wrap boxes in white tissue paper.

Step Three. Wrap boxes in tulle. Double the layers.

Step Four. Secure with velvet ribbon.

Display at place settings or on a table at the entrance to your reception. Enjoy!

Inspired by the Ballet…
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Inspiration

What is it about the ballet, that is just so romantic, alluring and inspiring?  A group of wedding professionals in Virginia took the concept and ran with it to produce a poetic evening photoshoot at Mount Ida Farm.  Feminity and grace were juxtaposed against the rustic-luxe venue.  Billowing florals cascaded across the tabletops, exquisite calligraphy danced across the paper goods, and the shoot even featured dancer/models from the Richmond Ballet!  Enjoy reveling in these photos by Aaron Watson Photography.
