When one of my daughters got married 4 years ago, she asked me to make tiny vases w/ a heart to hold the table assignment cards. I made them all different sizes and glazes, and guests even traded them! These are the vases:
I also made some personalized hearts to be used for gift bags at her shower:
But that was it. I never really got into the "wedding market"... until now!
I met a delightful bride-to-be and her fiance who asked me to make 100 olive dishes. They plan to give them out as favors. Apparently, there is a family story connected to olives! This is the olive dish they want:
I am delighted by this order! First, because weddings are a time of such high hopes when it seems that the future is wide open. Second, because I love olives! Third, because making these little dishes is a lot of fun!
So, there it is. I have until next April to get them done and I started this week.
Here are some dishes waiting for handles:
