There are so many options to choose from for wedding and corporate favours. The small bags with 2 marshmallows are probably the most popular choice to have waiting as your guests sits down for the meal but the flavours that you can choose from are endless. You can have the same two flavours or different flavours. For example you could have a His’n’hers favourite drinks, such as Teelings & Coffee and Mojito. You can also bring a colour theme into your marshmallows or meringues to match the flowers or bridesmaid dresses.

The first wedding favours that I ever did were for an apple themed wedding! So I created a pink lady meringue with a green and pink stripe running throughout.  For a Kerry groom and Dublin bride I did a small meringue bag with one green and gold meringue and one blue meringue.

Another way of personalising your wedding favours is by matching the ribbon to a colour scheme of either the flowers or the bridesmaid’s dresses. You can also have your names, date or a personalized message for your guests printed on ribbon.  The possibilities are endless.

S’mores Bar at The Millhouse 30th December 2016

Jen and Hamish treated their guests to a s’mores bar during their drinks reception at The Millhouse on the banks of the Boyne in Slane. The couple live in Hamish’s native Australia but Jen is from Ireland with so many of their guests making the long journey over.  The Millhouse is a wonderfully sumptuous venue yet still very comfortable and homely.  With the wedding being the day before New Years Eve, there was still a sense of Christmas coziness along with an open fire throughout the ground floor. While the ceremony was taking place in the old millhouse, I set up the S’mores Bar in the entrance hall of the main house.

When all the I do’s were said the guests made their way over to the house to select from a marshmallow choice of Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate, Oreo, Malteser, Coffee & Jameson, Raspberry and Passion Fruit & Coconut.  Knowing that there would be children at the reception I had brought simple chocolate biscuits as well as making a cookie that is a mix of a traditional cookie recipe and Graham’s crackers, which is the traditional American choice to have with s’mores.  I also brought some gluten and dairy free biscuits.  The s’mores proved very popular and I was still toasting when they were ready to go into dinner. The guests were a really friendly bunch and no doubt everyone had a great night.
