I was in the Toronto store earlier this week helping to set up some of the new wedding product displays. While I was in the store, I was approached by a number of creative customers who were looking for favor packaging and table presentation ideas for their weddings and parties. Everyone had a very specific colour or colour combination in mind and I was surprised by how many customers were working with the same colour combinations! So with that in mind, I created a few mood boards to share with you today.
1. (Bright) Pink.
In this first mood board I started with a bright pink and added white, silver (grey) and black (chalkboard). Whether you are planning a birthday party, shower or wedding ... pink is always a popular choice.
If you are packaging pink candies or baked goods - clear or white favor packaging is always a great idea so that your "goodies" take center stage. Use solid or patterned ribbons to dress up the favor containers.
Products like metal containers, silver striped straws, grey custom stickers and chalkboards keep this grouping from looking too girly.
Where to find it: take out boxes, baker's twine, bakery boxes, push pop containers, ribbon, chalkboards, clear boxes, bitty bags, clear pails with lids, glass containers and metal daisy lids, striped bakery boxes, metal containers, custom stickers, paper straws.
2. (Tiffany) Blue.
In this second mood board I started with a classic tiffany blue and added black & white. Strong, simple graphics on favor packaging and ribbons work well with this grouping and give this timeless colour combination a fresh new look.
Chalkboards work well with this grouping. I like the chalkboards with the white trim with this colour grouping but if you want to give this grouping a more vintage vs modern look, you can easily paint any of our chalkboards with gold or silver metallic paint. I added a glitter heart to the chalkboard gift tag using the tutorial that I showed you here.
Where to find it: take out boxes, bakery boxes, ribbon, chalkboards, clear boxes, bitty bags, glass containers, gift card holder, high gloss jewellery boxes, mod boxes, pop up gift box, paper straws.
3. Naturals (Kraft, Burlap and Lace).
This last mood board is one of my favourites ... focusing on a natural mix of textures with a touch of black and cream. Any colour that you add (such as the red, pink and white heart candies in my photo) will just pop with this colour grouping.
Ordinary kraft boxes and bags can be easily dressed up for any occasion by adding burlap and lace details. Our new faux birch products (paper straws, place card holders and centre pieces) work really well with this grouping! We almost sold out of these products on the first day we put the birch products in the store - they still can be ordered online.
Where to find it: take out boxes, bakery boxes, ribbon, burlap & lace ribbon, chalkboards, paper bags, glass containers, mod boxes, paper straws, candy bags, fabric bags, gift tags, burlap flowers, burlap candle holder, metal pail, baker's twine.
