I saw these cute little galvanized tin pails on ConsumerCrafts.com, and my mind started to run wild. They are only 2″, but they are so perfect for so many things. Since our theme has been “Wedding Week” this week, I thought I’d come up with some cute ways to use these in your wedding celebration!
- Seedling Favors. These are so great to display on a table at the end of the wedding reception, for guests to take as as they are leaving. Perfect for an eco-friendly/”green” couple, I just wrote “Let Love Grow” in black permanent marker to finish off the sentiment.
- Crayon Caddies. If you’ve got kids coming to your wedding reception, you’ll certainly want to have one of these for each child! (And make sure they get white paper place-mats, too.) Kids can scribble and color during the reception, and then carry home their own special favor. (You’ll win extra points with the Moms, too!)
- Birdseed/Rice Carriers. In many wedding ceremonies, it’s traditional to throw rice at the couple at the end of the wedding to bestow fertility. This tradition has been given a more bird-friendly twist and now attendees throw birdseed. Have a table with these sweet pails of seed embellished with a “lovebird” as folks exit the church. A simple lily/ribbon sticker adorns the pail, too.
- Jordan Almond Favors. This is another time-honored tradition, with the guest eating 5 almonds- but I like to fill mine to the brim! I lined this pail with 4 circles of white tulle and nestled my candies inside. A rhinestone heart sticker adds some “bling,” and the white charm says “Thank You.” What a cute gift to leave on each plate at the wedding reception!
- Tealights. Emblazoned with the couples monogram (a very hot trend right now), these battery-operated LED lights provide a festive, yet safe glow. Place them on the tables at the reception, along the gift table- anywhere you need a little light!
Side note- all of the embellishing items I used here can be found on the ConsumerCrafts website under the Bridal tab. The vinyl stickers were cut out using the Cricut and the Storybook cartridge. Have fun!Google+
