I recently received a package of yummy cookies from Erin at O’Cookies. Being that they are healthy [no trans fats and organic] I was a little skeptical about the taste…but having sampled the White Chocolate Cranberry Oat and the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat, I’m a total convert. You won’t have to feel guilty about giving these little guys as favors to your guests!
O’Cookies is our original line of decadent healthy treats. Offered in a few varieties of wholesome flavors, O’Cookies prides itself in the fact that all cookies produced are completely organic and low in fat and cholesterol. Oh, yeah, they also have no trans fats, or hydrogenated oils…
Only the highest-quality chocolates and naturally dried fruits are used. Our cookies are made with a whole wheat flour blend for optimal health, unrefined sugars and egg whites only. Very little butter is used along with fruits that keep O’Cookies down in the fat and cholesterol content and only contain “good for you” calories to get you through your day and satisfy that hungering for something sweet.

Last week I was invited to the Martha Stewart show for a special episode on weddings…and lucky me, the day before the episode I received one of these adorable little valentines in the mail from Darcy! They can be perfectly personalized as favors, and Darcy and Martha showed how easy they were to make on the show. In case you missed it, the directions are on Darcy’s blog, and since I didn’t have my good camera on me, check out WeddingBee’s photos from the show.

I saw this pixel-inspired wedding over at Mocoloco and was instantly enamored! From the invitations, to the cake, even down to the ring, everything was wonderfully pixelated…read more about it here.

Favors: Vosges Chocolates
Vosges has been more than good to me ever since starting Brooklyn Bride, and I couldn’t think of a better favor to give our guests than a pair of their amazing truffles! I was able to use their white favor boxes, and sent them a selection of yellow and green ribbon for them to tie on for me and no extra cost. We also included little Moo card with pictures in and around Brooklyn with a little note from the two of us. They were very accommodating and the truffles were DEE-lish!
1” buttons: Busy Beaver Button Co.
Busy Beaver Button Co. is incredibly easy to work with….I designed the pins according to their template, emailed them over, and had pins less than 2 weeks later! The owner even sent me a sample when I was a little concerned with color matching, but they looked amazing and everyone loved them.

One Girl Cookie is a place on Dean Street in Brooklyn I’ve always wanted to try, but always happens to be closed when I’m in the neighborhood. All handmade and DELICIOUS, they just launched their new Cookie Bar for weddings last night at the BFF Event. There are many options…they can send the cookies to your caterers, they can set up the display for you at your location, or they can even be there to serve your guests! Contact email@example.com for more information……
[I'll have more from the Best in Bridal event tomorrow!]
