How cute are the biscuits from todays fab new supplier?! We love The Kitsch Hen‘s unique wedding biscuits and think they can make the most fantastic personalised favours, as well as gifts for bridesmaids, flower girls and anyone else you would love to thank at your wedding. Edible favours are always a winner with us and we caught up with the lovely Caroline from The Kitsch Hen on her inspiration behind these wonderful treats. P.S. Caroline – we now really want to see your wedding pics!
Tell us a bit more about The Kitsch Hen…
We bake and handstamp biscuits, for all sorts of occasions including weddings! Biscuits can be personalised with messages of your choice, or you can choose from a selection of occasion biscuits on the website.
What inspired you to start The Kitsch Hen?
It all began when a friend of mine was having a difficult time and I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her, and that I loved her and was rooting for her. Not wanting to send flowers, and not knowing what to write in a card, I made some biscuits and stamped messages on them. It grew from there!!
How are you different from any other similar suppliers?
I firmly believe my biscuits are unique, and they’re made with a lot of love! There are other businesses making iced biscuits out there, but I haven’t come across any that offer the same level of personalisation as I do!
What would be your number one piece of advice for a bride to be?
Breathe! Enjoy the planning and don’t let it take over your life. I promise that on the day itself, anything that hasn’t gone quite to plan really won’t matter a bit, and as long as you stay true to you and your husband and create a wedding that reflects you both, and is for you two, and not anyone else – you’ll have the best day ever!
Tell us about the best thing you have seen at a wedding you have been to…
I have to say (without blowing my trumpet!) it was my own! We cleared out our calving shed (we’re dairy farmers) and had our reception in there. To one side was a large stable and we turned it into a quote room! I asked all my friends to create some artwork with their favourite inspirational quote on, and we displayed them all – there were sooo many brilliant quotes and now I have a quote wall in my office!
Finally, in one sentence tell us why someone should choose you to create favours for their day?
Wedding favours are a tough one – it’s hard to find something that’s personalised and a bit different. Something that’s not going to just get lost in the bottom of a drawer after the big day and eventually thrown away. My biscuits are there to be eaten and enjoyed, they can be personalised with any message of the bride and grooms choice (within reason!) and they’re something a little bit special and unique!
