What’s sweet, decadent, and the prettiest little treat? A French macaron is the answer! Today I’m going to be sharing some gifting ideas for you in the midst of your engagement and wedding season.
Whether you’ve seen pictures of them on Instagram or you’ve had the opportunity to try these cookies first hand, French Macarons have always been something very pleasing to the eye and tastebuds. They’re just about the tastiest dessert: full of flavor with that distinct melt-in-your-mouth texture. They’re small and simple, yet elegant and charming. These iconic sandwiched cookies can be gifted in numerous ways…here are a few ideas of how you can shower your loved ones with edible art.
Bridesmaids & Moms
Asking your closest friends to be your bridesmaid can be a tough task when trying to find the right gifts. Common things gifted are jewelry, nail polish, mini bottles of hooch, etc. but adding that special touch of French Macarons can just be the cherry on top! In addition to bridesmaids, mom’s and mom-in-laws would love this as well!
Macarons are a great way to say “thank you” to your wonderful vendors who have invested their time and skills into making your big day special. It’s not often that vendors receive “thank you” gifts from their clients…and such a little gift can really mean a lot!
Macaron favors are ALWAYS a big hit. They’re great because they are a lovely addition to your table décor and are also a decadent take-home treat! A two for one which is a great way to stay within your wedding budget. If you’re planning on a having a dessert bar, macarons are a great addition because you can customize these cookies to your wedding colors into the mix of sweet treats. Yet another way to incorporate aesthetic and deliciousness.
At Le Mignon Macaron, all orders can be customized by flavor and color. I also offer hand painting and other decorative elements for your special occasion. Some examples of how you could utilize that is to add a bridesmaids name to the cookies, or some extra sparkles or gold foil on top of your favors. The possibilities are endless and I’m here to help you shower your loved ones with edible art.
Around each major holiday I offer seasonal assorted packs with flavors catering to the holiday. Stay posted on the Instagram page or blog for upcoming specials and flavors!
With all of this information, it’s also good to know that Le Mignon Macaron ships! I am based out of California but my macarons have gone as far as New York, so distance is not an issue. I hope I’ve given you some ideas of gifting through this fun and busy season.
