Simply Favours' Blog
The 2014 wedding season is about to begin. With a new year comes a new range of wedding favours were sourced. We looked at the latest wedding trends and found fresh ideas for your wedding guests’ gifts.
In South Africa we love our wine, so naturally we started with the wine favours. We found the cutest little bottle opener in a handbag shape and to add to the cuteness, the wedding favour is hot pink.
If you are one of the people who believe that love is the ‘salt’ of life and the only thing to add real flavour, then you will love our new salt and pepper range. We added a ’Hugs and Kisses’ favour, a ’Fleur-de-lis’ favour, a ‘Damask’ salt and pepper shaker as well as the most adorable flower set. All three these wedding favours will add a little extra glamour to your wedding guests’ day and they will love their gifts.
The Lace coaster set is one of our personal favourites at the moment and we are using it in our office while we work. This wedding favour is great for French or Vintage themed weddings and will look beautiful on any reception table.
For the DIY wedding favours we added three beautiful boxes. The first is the ’Love bird favour box’, and then there is the ’Rustic favour box’ and the ’Pretty in Pink – Pom pom favour box’. All three these gift boxes are great for your budget as they are fairly cheap favours and yet they will make your guests smile fondly at them when they see them. We noticed a trend rising for love birds and decided to add an inexpensive bird cage wire favour box to our range as well. These little wire boxes has already received quite a lot of attention and you can be sure that it will look beautiful on your wedding reception tables.
Keep an eye out for our next blog, we are on a mission and hope to help you as much as possible with your wedding planning.
Remember, wether you stay in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town or Pofadder, we deliver to your door across South Africa :-)

The evenings here in Johannesburg are cool and even some of the days have been chilli. We decided this is a sign and will be extending our spring sale until the end of November.
We chose a wide selection of our favourite wedding favours and they are now available for at the cheapest prices.
Our gold and silver chair wedding favours have been marked down from R10 to a meagre R7 a favour box. These chairs are easy to fold and comes with a ribbon and heart charm. You can even personalise this give by adding a sticker with your initials for R5 extra.
The popular wire boxes are now R15. Your guests will love the detail of these boxes and you can use the wire favour boxes to add to your décor by inserting a tea candle in them and lighting them just before the bride and groom enter the reception area. This will create a magical atmosphere that your guests will remember when they look at their wedding favours at home again.
For our eco friendly weddings we placed the bamboo coaster sets on sale. This set of four coasters are completely degradable and will be the perfect green wedding favour. They are light and have the extra benefit that it is practical. The coasters are now available
We are exhibiting at the Wedding Expo this weekend at the Coca Cola Dome. This might possibly be the best Wedding Expo in South Africa and we highly recommend that you attend it. Your wedding planning list will shorten significantly after the expo. While you are there, pop into our stand at stand C29. We are going to have a competition and also give away some discount voucher to the brides that come to see us.
Our wedding favours will be on display and you can even buy samples from us and place your orders. Our friendly staff will be ready to answer any questions you may have and provide you with valuable advice.
Some of the wedding favours that you can expect to see will definitely be our little wire boxes. The photos simply do not do these cute boxes justice.
The ever so popular “Love Bean” wedding favour will also be there. The packaging of this wedding favour might possibly be my favourite, not to mention how unique the gift is!!!
If there is any specific wedding favour that you would like to see, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this article we want to share a fun idea, a love bird themed wedding! We have noticed the trend in the last breaths of 2012 picking up and now it is in full swing. We made an effort to add a few wedding favours to our range that will work perfectly with this theme.
Our first and an absolute favourite is the “Lovebirds in Window” Salt and Pepper Shakers.
These practical little lovebirds will warm the hearts of your wedding guests every time they use them at home.
This cute set of white, ceramic, bird-shaped salt and pepper shakers are displayed in a beautiful light-brown gift box which displays the love birds behind a clear window to your wedding guests. A delicate graphic design of lined trees appears on the box and a branch with two kissing lovebirds is printed on the tag. A chocolate brown satin ribbon and bow complete this beautiful wedding favour. As a thank you for reading our blog we would like to offer you a 10% discount on our “Lovebirds in Window” shakers. Simply use this discount code when you place your order:
Delightfully designed and completely irresistible the lovebird placeholders will add an instant talking point to your reception tables. Your wedding guests can take them home and stick their favourite photo of your wedding day in it.
We also have a blue set of love bird shakers. They are truly engaging and perfect wedding favours for a Lovebird themed wedding. Finely crafted in white porcelain, these modern and romantic salt and pepper shakers make adorable favours for weddings, baby or bridal showers.
The exquisite gift packaging features a pullout box with the two Love Birds comfortably nesting inside. Die cut openings in the box cover allows a small peek into the interior. For added charm, personalise this gift using the versatile Love Bird Paper Band at R4 extra.
The wedding favour is presented in a clear gift-box design that surrounds the lovebird with a clever, cut out tree bursting with heart-shaped leaves. The base of the wedding favour gift box is white with a square, soft-green graphic in front that says Lovebirds Chrome Wine Stopper between two delicate, brown branches, and on top of the gift box is a white-satin bow and a matching 'For You' tag.
We hope this article helped, all the best with your planning, and remember, ENJOY every moment :-)
