Petite & Sweet has just released another YouTube video on their Petite and Sweet TV channel. As I have already told you before, we are working with Elle Daftarian on the YouTube video series.
The rustic woodland theme has been one of my favourite themes for a wedding, party or special event for a very long time. It's comfortable and you can dress it up or dress it down with your details. I think that you will be inspired by all of the projects that Elle and her team created for this video.
So many great ideas ... don't you agree?! Here's some of the details and product information ...
Elle's signature drink recipe for iced hot chocolate can be found on the Petite & Sweet blog. Our square 8oz mason jars and birch bark straws are perfect for this rustic outdoor theme. We just received a new assortment of mason jar mugs and beverage containers that are perfect for an outdoor rustic party.
The s'more bar is genius. I love how Elle used homemade marshmallows and you can find her recipe for making these here. Watch the video to find out more about how to recreate one of these yourself. Burlap table runners can be found here.
Our paper bags were used for so many projects in the video. Simply mist the bags with a little bit of water and while the paper is still damp you can crinkle the bags to fit tightly around jars. Use the same technique for the favor bags. Elle filled these bags with popcorn and nuts - yum!
Our wood slice medallions are inexpensive and easy to incorporate into so many projects . Here you can see they were used as escort cards with cutlery bundles and as food labels on the s'more bar. We do sell custom napkins, but if you want a more casual diy look, you can make your own using our custom stamps and permanent ink on plain napkins. Find these glass containers and more here.
Here's a couple more unique ideas on the video. Use jute twine and mini clothes pegs with birch branches to create a photo display. This idea could be recreated for a wedding - hang escort cards to start and ask guests to replace their card with a polaroid photo of themself. Vintage books are used to hold a display of graham crackers ... use waxed paper in between the pages to make the book a little more "food safe".
I have always liked the idea of serving bite size portions at a sweet table. These cookie and milk "shooters" are adorable! Follow these links for glass containers, birch bark paper straws and striped paper straws. Our mini metal buckets can be spray painted if you don't like the rustic finish. Use a regular sized cupcake liner inside the bucket and add a mini cupcake. Use mini clothes pegs to add a tag to each bucket if you want to use these as favors.
Here's the video ... I hope that you will "Like" it!
