DIY Wedding Wednesday: Pretty in Pink – Potpourri Baggie Favors

potpourri baggie wedding favors

I’m pretty positive that the color pink was created specifically for weddings. From blush to pastel, with its intrinsic femininity and softness, pink is a perfect fit for a celebration of love. So it’s no surprise I often find myself working it into a DIY Wedding Wednesday post, and today is no exception. With just a little touch of pink, by way of the sweetest fabric rosette and pink button trim, we’ll be taking a little burlap favor baggie to a whole other level of pretty. And with the addition of some aromatic (and pink, of course) potpourri, we’ll come away with the loveliest of guest favors. Excited? I am! Here’s how to get the look.
