WEDDING FAVOR IDEAS
Lucky Key Chains
Give your guests a key chain with a lucky rabbit's foot, a lucky horseshoe
or a shamrock.
Lucky Four Leaf Clover Pot
Paint a 2" terra cotta pot green. Decorate along rim with gold paint
or small shamrock stickers. Seal the pot with acrylic spray sealer. Place
small piece of florist foam in bottom. Glue in some Spanish moss on top.
Paint a few wooden four-leaf clovers for each pot and add your names and
wedding date to one. Glue clovers to wire or thin wooden dowels and insert
Pot O' Gold
Buy small cauldrons or buckets at a craft store. Paint a pewter color
if needed. Fill with small gold-foil covered candies. Wrap in clear cellophane
to hold candies in place.
Irish Music CD or Tape
Give your guests a selection of your favorite Irish music.
Fill Irish themed chocolate molds (either on a sucker stick or as individual
chocolates) and wrap them in green cellephane with a green curly ribbon
as decoration. Some chocolate mold ideas are: leprechaun hats, leprechaun
figures, shamrocks, Irish derby hats, lucky horseshoes, rainbows, chocolate
coins, and/or a lucky rabbit's foot.
IRISH SAYINGS FOR WEDDING FAVOR TAGS
Don't forget to add a favor tag to your wedding favors, which include
your names and your wedding date. Here are a few Irish sayings and blessings
to add to your wedding tags:
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.
May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles
of the people you love.
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
May your heart be light and happy,
May your smile be big and wide,
And may your pockets always have
a coin or two inside!
May you have all the happiness
and luck that life can hold—
And at the end of all your rainbows
may you find a pot of gold.
May you get all your wishes but one,
So you always have something to strive for.
May the love and protection St. Patrick can give
Be yours in abundance as long as you live.
