In Italy, centuries ago, wealthy aristocrats began the custom of giving "bomboniere" or favours as they are now known, to guests during wedding celebrations, christenings, anniversaries and other social occasions. In their earliest format, bomboniere were made of gold, silver, crystal or porcelain and were decorated with precious stones and contained five sugar coated almonds. The almonds had a special significance, symbolising health, wealth, happiness, long life and fertility.
Paper Passion offers the modern alternative in the form of attractive embossed sweet boxes containing sugar and chocolate coated almonds and decorated with flowers, wired embellishments and satin or organza ribbon in a variety of colours to complement your wedding colour scheme.
In addition to giving your guests a token of your appreciation, favours also make an attractive table decoration. It is customary to give one favour per guest or per couple.
For the creative or budget-conscious among you, there is a DIY option. Many of the boxes featured on this page are available flat packed for you to assemble and decorate yourself. Please enquire for further details.
