We recently dressed the chairs for a couple’s wedding in July who chose to have ‘Christmas’ crackers as their favours. I thought nothing of it at the time but later wondered why I had never seen it before (apart from Christmas time weddings)
There really is no reason not to have crackers in July and although the ones shown in the image here are very Christmasy because they are gold and match with the chair covers and sashes – you could have a lot of fun by making your own and have any colour or pattern you like. Imagine the fun!! Perfect for kids sweets, miniatures, cookies or sugared almonds even!! You could really go to town the the personal gift ideas inside, and why not include a silly hat too!! I dare you.
In this image you can see that the cracker is labelled with the guests name too, doubling up as their place name card.
If you feeling like you might want to have a go and make your own then have a Blue Peter moment with a bit of cutting and sticking.
