Peaches and Creme – Natural Wedding Inspiration from In Casa Gifts!

Summer is upon us and so is wedding fever! How did you like our last post about a Chevron Themed Wedding?

Patterns and trends are an amazing route to go if you’re looking for something modern and stylish, but it’s not for everybody. If you’re not sure that you want a bold theme but do need some direction, let me introduce you to a Peaches and Creme wedding theme. Like any theme, it can be played up as little or as much as you would like.

Like this colour scheme we found on Pinterest?
First of all, peach is pretty gender neutral. For a groom that isn’t crazy about feminine colours or patterns, this is an excellent compromise for a wedding theme. You can have your cake and eat it too!
Think about a peach background like this one – layered peach streamers create a waterfall effect. There are no flowers here – it’s eye catching and beautiful, but very neutral. You could even throw in different shades of peach, cream, dove gray. I also love the use of candles lining the aisle – it’s a lovely alternative to flowers. Less expensive and reusable!
The best part of “peach” is that you can incorporate food or just the colour. Peach wedding cakes? Peach cake pops, just straight peaches? It’s not fancy, but rather homey. Time to bring out those pickled peaches your Grandmother made!
Personalized Glass Favor Jars Set of 12
Hand out personalized jars that are filled with homemade pickled peaches! Your guests can even reuse the jars later and remember your beautiful and practical favors.
Perfect for a hot summer wedding, why not whip out all the favourite summer treats?
For the kids, peach icecream! Peach cobbler! Peach popsicles! It’s a cute touch that is both practical and ties your theme together beautifully.
Hand out Stainless steel ice cream scoops out as a wedding favour for the kids at your wedding! They can scoop with it, eat with it, and take it home! What’s more practical than that!

Serve peach schnapps for your adults, in shot glasses that they can take home! These are actually on sale right now, seriously affordable.

And what’s the final touch? Personalized ribbon of course. Not only does this ribbon come in SO many colours, you can have anything written on it. Wrap it around your favors and voila! The sweetest favors at the best price point. This theme is beautiful and easy on your budget too!

Brew Some Love! Coffee Themed Party Favors From In Casa Gifts

Hello darlings, how are all of you tonight?
Just because our tea-themed wedding theme was such a big hit, we thought we needed to give it’s bold counterpart a chance as well!

A coffee-themed wedding IS bold, and if you’re strong enough to do it, here’s how.
We paired deep cocoa brown with bits of light blue, for a refreshing and satisfying color scheme. It’s certainly one of the more striking colour combinations available, and is really quite elegant when done correctly. So how do you do it correctly, you ask?
Nothing says elegance like wedding favors designed by Artisano Designs, and they have the most beautiful selection of coffee-themed wedding favors available.

No joking! Have you seen some of these favors? You won’t find this kind of quality in any other wedding favor brands. I’m not exaggerating. Where else would you find a really nice espresso maker? It’s wrapped and ready to go! Just brings a tear to my eye.

Euro Espress – White Espresso Maker (2 Cup)
Expressions of Love Espresso Cup Favor – In White (Set of 2)
Swish Cup and Biscotti Saucer Favor (Set of 2)

Why not line up your espresso cups with some coffee and kahlua, and make a tasty shooter out of it? Present it right and you can do no wrong 😉
Deep cocoa brown and pale blue is a very distinct and pungent colour scheme – if this is for you, it’s go big or go home. Deep brown bridesmaid dresses, pale blue pumps that barely peep out of your elegant wedding dress– all necessary. The table setting is certainly a place that should beautifully tie together your theme. How about a dark wood table with light blue lining and placemats, covered with dark brown and copper cutlery and plates? This is a theme that you can really play with layering. We personally think of a marble cake – be mindful to mix in the right amount of light blue and it’s eye-catching and delightful.

Ciao for now!

Don’t Leave it Until the Last Minute

So we have a few standard responses at In Casa Gifts. One of these is in response to “How far in advance should I order my wedding favors.” Good question, and given this “wedding thing” is something most of us do once (of course we would never turn away repeat customers:), it’s a great question.

The answer is, “Order your party favors as soon as you’ve decided on them“. Even a year in advance, you ask? Absolutely, or especially… Ordering your favors well in advance provides you with many benefits, including:

  1. You get ample time to open them up and count/inspect them.
  2. Time to get them to the wedding reception hall early if you’d like for set up.
  3. Ensure availability. Although fairly uncommon, our wedding favours can go temporarily out of stock, or become discontinued altogether.

So, get your wedding favors early and check it off your wedding day “to-do” list so you’re one step closer to saying “I Do”! Want to check out the latest new favours? They’re here on our blog – you can window shop!

What if I’m a Last Minute Bride?

We’ll do our best to help. Whether you’re shipping Wedding Favours to your home in Canada or the U.S., we can usually get them to you within 1.5 to 2 weeks – slightly longer for personalized wedding favors.

One thing’s for sure, you never have to worry with In Casa Gifts since we guarantee your satisfaction and are prices can’t be beat! (How’s that for wedding planning peace of mind in a tight economy?).

Hope to “see you” at In Casa Gifts soon and happy wedding planning!
