I've just finished knitting some snowy white yarn into sweet little pouches, I think they will make original wedding favour keepsakes to hold sugared almonds.
I like the symbolism of the 5 Almonds given to guests at wedding receptions. Each almond has a specific meaning - Health, Wealth, Happiness, Long Life or Fertility.
I smile to think how the bitterness of the almond and the sweetness of the coated candy are meant to reflect the bitter sweetness of a marriage!
They would make lovely bags for the bridesmaids thank you gifts too
I can just imagine them with a special little gift in them. Maybe a delicate pair of earrings from Tatania Rose
or a personalised necklace from Simply Stated
I'm busy finishing some matching purses and handbags too. It makes me wish I had a wedding to go to myself!!
