One of the things I love about going to weddings or any special events is, the souvenir, the give-away, or the beautiful little bonboniere for me to remember that special event. It's crucial to plan for this little thank you gift for your guests as it marks the day not only for you, but for everyone to remember and appreciate.
It can be chocolates, flowers, or so much more nowadays with creativity levels soaring from every wedding planners, tv reality shows and brides themselves. The concept behind bonboniere, originated in France, around 300 years ago, when a small box of sweets (the French word - bonbons) was given away to guests on happy occasions. Over time the idea spread to other parts of Europe, and in particular to Italy and Greece.
In Melbourne, you can find many beautiful ideas to create your own bonboniere. A little piece of Paris is a fabulous special events planner company that allows you to work with them on your preference on that little momento gift. Ranging from pure and pretty flower boxes to perfume bottles, you can view all their services here. They also have a sister site worth visiting called The Style Co. where they style weddings such as invitations and more. C'est magnifique..
