      first thread here ...just joined a few days back..dis is like the most helpful place i came across as far as wedding planning is concerned..so i really need help ppl..

      i have very little time ..n m also having my sendup exams next week ( they got delayed due to the institutions closing down coz of the bad situation in pak these days.. n so my sendup dates clashed exactly wid the day of my engagement and before ..

      i really need ideas about serving mithai at the time of engagement..not talkin abt the favor boxes of sweet treats tht go to the groom's side after engagement ..as in serving them to all the guests present at that time .. any creative ideas yet moderately priced ideas ?

      n do nirala make customized packages of mithai? n how much wud they approx cost ? its just tht i m havin an engagement n then a full fledged big nikkah function ..n by the time of my barat my parents wud be drained out totally..so m tryin to go for little things that wont take much effort as i dont have much time and also wudnt cost a friggin mint of money ...

      lookin fwd to hearing all sorts of creative ideas from u gurls

      thnkz

      You could get a lot different boxes designed and then get them filled with mithai of your choice... The usual ones at the different mithai shops are usually gaudy... Get them designed and made as per your specs

      On my engagement which was small thing at home with intimate family and friends. My sisters used Charger plates since they are so huge and we found them in Gold and decorated that with mitthai and rose petals. We used it for rasam and for some reason its not showing up i will try attaching in a bit.

      If you are trying to avoid the favors type look. Order bite size mithai if you can. Get nice round looking silver trays & set up the individual pieces on top of each other in a tier. Make sure you place a wax paper on the tray first. It'll have a more clean look & no sheera drops that way. You can even do this the night before your engagement & cover it with plastic wrap so the mithai doesn't get dry.

      If you have more than one sister. Get another nice looking silver tray. Creatively fill it with colored napkins( maybe match your outfit) & colored toothpicks. One person holds the tray & offers mithai & the other person can help with a napkin & toothpick to grab mithai from.

      Or you could also get bite sized mithai but in place it in a larger tray & fill individual pieces with toothpick & just offer them with a colored napkin.



      This was for a baby shower we did.

      Don't know how practical the two people serving part is but see if it suits you. When you individually serve guests at any gathering it just makes them feel more special. Another way of thanking them to be a part of your happiness.

      Its not showing up because you have space in your image title. Trying deleting the space & see if it works.

      n yea i agree..individually serving them is nice..the favor boxes eventually would go to their places anyway ..but doing it right there and then would also look nice !

      I did these for BIL wedding. I did better ones for the shaadi with silver/gold cupcake liners and I like the tooth pick idea

      A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
