It truly is wedding season and I can tell by the colour of my fridge. It's filled with cards that are all shimmering with bliss screaming at me to RSVP to the Wedding/engagement/kitchen tea. Among this pastel rainbow is the recycled-paper number with loud typography, the classic black and white vellum card with elegant script, and then there's bespoke white jacquard invite showing off a ribbon to match their colour scheme. But my favourite, my absolute favourite, (sadly) could not be stuck to the fridge. In fact, it couldn't even be mailed to me.
Over brunch last weekend my girlfriend Catherine handed me her invitations. Sitting above a shimmering stack of envelopes was a miniature purple cheese grater. Needless to say, I looked at her like she was mad until I saw the little card strung by a ribbon to the top inviting me to her kitchen tea. I swiped it off the table, gushing over how it was such a brilliant idea, and she told me how she had a whole bag full of mini kitchen appliances including whisks and wooden spoons to hand out for her day.
It's such a great idea - and easy to recreate. You can buy mini kitchen appliances from Pink Frosting (pinkfrosting.com.au), including measuring spoons and whisks, and all you need to do is print out your invitation on a mini card and tie it with some ribbon to match your colour scheme. Voila.
