A Measure of Love - Heart Shaped Measuring Spoons, The Cutest Wedding Favor Of All By Deborah Lewis

If your beloved has popped the question and you've said yes, it's time to start thinking about planning your wedding. With that being said, I'm sure a million things have come to mind. Bridal gown, venue, invitations, guest list, flowers, decor, the list goes on and on.

One important key part of your plans should be deciding on what favors to give your guests. Wedding favors have been around for hundreds of years. It all started when nobles offered jeweled trinket boxes fashioned from porcelain, fine wood or alabaster. These bejeweled creations were called bonbonniere and were filled with sugary confections. Back in those days sugar was a luxury and even used as a medicine. As time passed, these sugary delights were replaced with almonds. These favors represented wealth, happiness and fertility to name just a few sentiments.

In today's world, wedding favors have evolved into whatever the bride wishes them to be. Most of the time favors are chosen to coordinate with the wedding theme and colors of the event. Bottle stoppers, candles and chocolates are favorites and can be used for just about any theme.

If you've decided that you want a favor that's both unique and practical, you might consider heart shaped measuring spoons. Everyone cooks and needs kitchen accessories so why not select something both adorable and useful. It's a favor your guests will cherish for many days to come.

I have to admit that these love measuring spoons are absolutely adorable and will bring quiet a few delightful grins from your guests. Measuring spoons come in different sizes and are made of stainless steel. Uniquely engraved, one side says "measures of love" while on the other side, each spoon features a sweet sentiment. "A Pinch of Patience" is on the 1/4 teaspoon, "A Dash of Kindness" on the 1/2 teaspoon, "A Spoonful of Laughter" is on one teaspoon, and "A Heap of Love" is on one tablespoon.

These adorable measuring spoons come in elegant gift boxes tied with organza bows. These boxes come primarily in black but you can choose another color to coordinate with your wedding hues. For example,

if you are having a pink and black themed wedding, select a pink gift box and if you want something besides the white organza bow that comes with it, create a stir by purchasing black organza and tie each box with a black bow. The Lovespoon Gallery here:
