DIY Devotee

Spurred on by the success of last weeks DIY Devotee, I wanted to share another yummy idea today which Charlotte spotted over on Something Old, Something New.

These candy coloured cookies make perfect little messages for your guests, whether you choose to embellish them with your name and wedding date, a thank you or welcome message, or even naughty/nice wedding phrases to get guests talking they make perfectly sweet favours. All you need is a bit of creativity and a piping bag!

The message cookie cutter is available from Williams Sonoma for $19.95 and they do ship internationally, you just have to call them to set it up.

Our other share this week comes from Adelle over at Peonies and Pearls. Adelle was sharing some of the clever DIY’s she did for her own wedding with us and I was particularly taken with this retro cute Just Married Banner.

If you would like Adelle to share the template with you she used to make this cute banner (she also cleverly used it for a a Thank You card prop) there are full how-to details and her email address over on the blog post.

It’s kind of gone out of vogue now, but I love the idea of driving away earlier in the evening to spend a bit more energy than the usual collapsed state with your brand spanking new hubby and this would make a wicked photo op – even just from church to reception or photo location.

So that’s it for this week. Enjoy folks and happy weekend planning 🙂

Yours Truly,

  1. Those biscuits are so cool! My stepdaughter-to-be is 7 next month and I feel birthday biscuits coming on…

    They’d also make brilliant save the dates – I’m already thinking of other uses so I can justify the purchase to future husband! 🙂

  2. oooh oooh oooh I love those cookie cutters, I’m having a bit of a cookie/all-things-sweet making phase at the moment, so I think I NEED those!

  3. UMMMMM ladies they DO NOT ship to the UK, even if you call them.


    I tried to order them to make individual place name cookies and have just wasted alot of time and money speaking to several (rather nice) employees. The only option is to employ a receiving company (who needs the hassle?).

    RMW I love you guys but maybe you need to check for sure before you post 🙁

    Im sooo disappointed, if anyone hears of said product being available in the UK please give me a shout

    peace xx

  4. I noticed they didn’t ship to the UK as well Catherine 🙁

    Seems that these cookie cutters are exclusive to this company, and also have been unable to find anything similar!

  5. Hi ladies,

    Sorry to hear you can’t get the cookie cutters shipped, that’s a real pain. We can only do a certain amount of investigation within the time constraints we have before posting so these things happen sometimes.

    It’s not exactly the same but it would be just as pretty to pipe names or messages onto similar cookies?


  6. There are some available on if you’re willing to part with a bit more money. Am very tempted! I’d already been thinking about making place name cookies for my ceremony guests (only 20!) and this would require less icing skills. For a biscuit icing how-to I’d strongly recommend the Peggy Porschen books though.


  7. Lucy, Lucy, Lucy, I love you!

    I am buying one right now, thank you muchly. Have been contacting receiving companies all day and they are so much more expensive.

    happy again 🙂

  8. What a cute idea! I’m thinking, given time and a change of pastry (I remember we used to use something play doh esque at christmas) these would make cute place settings!
