We see weddings as a gift. It’s a gift to be able to give and share with a two people celebrating their special day. We also happen to be the people who will create tangible gifts for weddings!
We were so honored to be asked by Sinclair & Moore to create welcome boxes for a beautiful wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel this past weekend. The gifts were to be placed in the hotel rooms for all fifty-five guests from out of town. The bride had beautiful colors including a romantic forest green. The forest green went perfectly with her request to have the welcome boxes Pacific Northwest-themed!
We spent some time pondering what would best represent the elegance of the wedding and beauty of the Seattle area. We wanted the boxes to a fun treat for the guests to snack on when they returned from the wedding late at night, but we also wanted the guests to have something personal to take home to remember the special day by.
You can’t think about the Evergreen State without thinking about coffee. Middle Fork Roasters provides freshly roasted beans in custom labels, so we went with a beautiful label of the Seattle skyline from and added the Bride and Groom’s name to create a special gift to remember the coffee-obsessed city!
The box was filled with other Seattle snacks to enjoy throughout the weekend. We selected some of the local favorites: Fran’s Chocolates, Popcorn from KuKuRuZa, Granola from Marge, and fresh apples to celebrate our state’s fruit! It rains a lot, so we figured we’d add some water…just kidding! Water is a necessity, but the custom forest green labels from La Happy made the beverage into a beautiful and personalized touch of elegance for the box! To tie it all together, we added one of our favorite details… GlassyBaby! If you follow us regularly, you know we add GlassyBaby to nearly every box, but their small votive added the perfect final touch!
The Bride and Groom added a personal Welcome to Seattle card and we tied the boxes with a beautiful ribbon and a card that read,”benvenuto!” to welcome their guests in Italian! These boxes were so fun to create and such an honor to present. Contact us if you want to create something special to welcome, or thank, your wedding guests! Special thanks to Steve at Sinclair and Moore for allowing us to be apart of this event and to Alanna Maria Photography for always capturing photos of our boxes that display the details and brand of Wish and Pink!
Cheers to love and the gifts of weddings… and wedding gifts!
