The Most Popular Color of Wedding Favor Box is…

GOLD!

I spoke with Anthony Cirone, president of Li-Lac Chocolates in New York City — a fave of Martha Stewart and Bravo’s Andy Cohen — about wedding favor truffle box colors, and he said:

“The classic gold box is by far the most popular, even with all the other color choices. Pastel colors like blue and pink are popular too, but also white with ribbons that match the wedding party colors.”

See the Li-Lac truffle favor box colors, including gold, here. And here’s a link to their gold 4-pc truffle boxes.

Fab Find! DonSueMor Madeleines for Dessert Hour, Favors and Gifts

Taditional Madeleines from Donsuemor

Madeleines are IN as a top treat for weddings! We’re talking elegant additions to your wedding brunch or wedding morning, or morning-after breakfast, additions to guest welcome baskets, features on your wedding dessert buffet table and of course delectable gifts for your wedding vendors and parents!

The wonderful folks at DonSueMor sent me a collection of madeleines, plus their biscotti and French Almond Cakes, and I wanted to be sure you knew how delicious these little cookies are, how budget-friendly, and how crowd-pleasing they are. They’re my Fab Find for the week, and I encourage you to treat yourself to a sampler or box, or just dive in and order your entire wedding collection at once – at this time, they’re offering free shipping for your $100+ order, which is pretty sweet.

Thanks, DonSueMor, for these delicious treats that are so In, so reminiscent of what the ladyships would snack on during high tea at Downton Abbey. Count me as a big fan!

Adding the Honey to Honeymoon

Just when you thought a honeymoon couldn’t get any sweeter….here comes Caneel with a brilliant new plan to bring local island honey into their cuisine and drinks (mmm, a honey and rum cocktail by the ocean!), as well as into their desserts, the gift shop, and especially their new spa and pampering treatments. Honey is so good for you! It’s a brilliant idea to share Caneel’s new, sweet tastes, especially because it supports the local beekeepers on the island of St. John! Caneel Bay wins for biggest-hearted resort, as well as most beautiful!

So when you go, be sure to post here what you loved about the new honey foods and desserts, cocktails, spa treatments, and what you found in the gift shop! I’m headed to Caneel in a few weeks, and I’ll share my favorite finds!
