Cute Wedding Favours


This feature is on Leeander, from The Cakebread’s Nest, beautiful favours that we immediately fell in love with on twitter!

How she began

I started out within the past few years selling home accessories and refurbishing furniture and then selling on ebay - I realised recently and especially after planning my own wedding last year how similar some of the items I sold were to pretty table decorations for weddings and I decided to make some favour boxes to my own design, and also name place settings. I still sell small homeware gifts / accessories, but am focusing on wedding items more now. I run the company by myself - with a little help from my Husband occasionally :)

I am based in Cuxton, Kent.

Best part of her work

Dealing with Brides to be planning one of the biggest and special days of their life, and being a small part of that - also I love designing new products.

Why people should buy from her

Because I’m a small company who can give a really personal service as I believe every wedding is so individual to the couple, so I like the challenge of coming up with different ideas for different people.

The help of Twitter and..

along with Etsy and fellow wedding suppliers who helped me with my wedding have all been great in promoting my business.

The Future

My goals for the future are to continue to make pretty vintage / shabby chic items that people will love and choose for their special day, and to create a good relationship with blogs/magazines/wedding suppliers in order for us all to share tips & hints to make our small businesses successful.

Wedding Tea Towels

I came across Karen’s tea towels on twitter and I was immediately fascinated. How unique, handmade custom wedding tea towels! They are perfect to use as invites, save the dates or wedding favours. You can choose from her range of designs or if that doesn’t do it for you, you can even have you own bespoke tea towel designed!

You may be wondering how this idea came about. Way back in 2009, Karen and Ben got married and wanted something extra for their wedding invitation. Something to create a buzz around their wedding, cheaper than the standard paper options, good for the environment and something guests could keep forever…and that is when they created the ‘Wedding Tea Towel’.

Their guests were genuinely blown away and the response was totally amazing. It became one of the most memorable thing about their wedding. So after they got married, they both wondered if maybe the idea was good enough to make a little business out of, so that’s exactly what they did. Now they have 18 designs to choose from and also provide matching artwork for evening invites, RSVPs and Information cards.

A new idea which is equally as good for the environment, as you do not need to spend money on invites that people will throw away. These tea towels can be kept forever.

Another plus is that your guests will never forever your anniversary! With the Tea Towel hanging around your kitchen for years to come, guests have no excuse for forgetting your wedding anniversary.

Finally, this creates a buzz. The responses you will receive will be epic as everyone is going to have an opinion on your invite and they can’t wait to get in touch to tell you, this makes RSVP’s so much easier.
