DC wedding ideas

We pride ourselves on having an easy and innovative approach to providing wedding design to couples around the DC area!

We are constantly creating…so stand by each week for something new!

This is from a wedding we did this year on father’s day where every father at the wedding got a boutonniere!  This was at the request of the bride!

What can we design for you?

S'mores DIY style

S’mores are something that will never get old.  People love cookies, they love chocolate and marshmallows!

We had a wedding recently that we created a S’mores bar for it – details to come on that. However, we know that some people would be too busy dancing and would want to take some s’more home!

Instead of using a bunch of plastic bags – we went a more eco-friendly way.  Using craft bags is the way to and frankly much easier to work with for a DIY project.  Place two regular size marshmallows inside a smaller craft make and tape it off so it is sealed.  For your wedding – pick up some cute paper tape that come in all colors at any office supply store or wherever school supplies are sold.  This way all of it can be recycled afterwards.

Then place one whole graham cracker, one bar of chocolate (whichever brand you like – we like a different one – but Hershey’s is a fan fave) along with the bag of marshmallows inside the bigger craft bag.  Fold the bag over at the top, make two holes with a hold puncher and stick a bamboo skewer in to hold it all together for a takeaway s’mores pack!

We finished ours off with a cute label!
