Wish Lists

Close your eyes and dream tight,
your wish may be granted tonight............

In today's world there is so much to choose from when it comes to gifts and taste varies so much that it can be hard for people to make the right choice when it comes to something special. So much so, it's now perfectly acceptable to create a list of things that you would appreciate and send them to people that you know would like to buy you a gift. It means that they don't have to spend time agonising over whether they have got the right gift for you and you aren't left with multiple expensive toasters!

Traditionally this idea of a gift wish list has been confined to weddings, but in recent years it has begun to expand into other special events that people want to celebrate. The wish list can be used for every occasion from birthdays, Christmas, graduation, home warming and of course weddings. The system will be easy to use, you simply add your chosen gifts to your wish list and email them across to everyone you wish to let know what you would like. Its that simple!

So keep your eyes open, Touches is working on creating a new wish list feature that allows you to choose the gifts you want and email them over to family and friends. It's simple, fun and easy, so keep your eyes open, more information will be coming along soon. xx xx

Whats the buzzzz with Burt's Bees?

This is a company that started out at the very beginning with a bee keeper called Burt and some bees! Along with a local waitress they started making candles which lead to them creating a beeswax lip balm to sell alongside. As both were keen environmentalists they decided from the start that they would make a commitment to replace all the chemicals and synthetics found in other skin care products with natural ingredients and find ways of working that showed respect for both their customer's skin and the environment.

Thus with candles and lip balm Burt's Bees was born. the company today has expanded and now sells over 150 products that are all made of 100% natural ingredients.

So keep your eyes peeled from next week for this naturally delicious smelling new range xx

summertime weddings

summertime weddings

yes it's finally here, the season of weddings has begun. there is nothing more romantic that a beautiful wedding on a summers day to remind you of what is good and romantic in the world. watching a sister or brother, best friend or work colleague exchanging vows and making a romantic commitment is always something to celebrate and always something that is very personal when it comes to decorations, flowers and taste.

touches has found a lot of inspiration this year in weddings (maybe something to do with the fact I'm getting married myself in September) the theme of romance is strong in our latest wedding collection, think hanging tin decorative hearts that can be used as both decorations and napkin holders, hanging heart tea lights, again double up and use them as gifts for helpful friends and relatives at the end of the wedding. classic cream floating rose candles or romantic red rose tea light candles dotted around the room. create tasteful wedding plans with heart shaped memo boards which can be used after in the kitchen, office or bedroom as a lovely reminder of your big day (you can even use it as a contemporary wedding album).

another trend that's hot at the moment (and I'm taking a lot of influence from myself) is a vintage summertime theme. Soft pink and blues, hydrangeas, lotus flowers and lavender seeds and petals make lovely confetti as well as stunning table decorations. I find this theme so romantic and lush for a summer wedding. Using floating lotus flower candles, rustic twig hearts, butterflies, hanging lanterns, soft summertime votive and soft romantic tea light holders and bunting. this all helps recreate a summer garden theme.

add some rustic parcel tags for the place names and your off.

so for some wedding inspiration come and take a look, or if you have any inspirational ideas of your own, I know I personally could do with them now ;)
