Mini Me

On our wedding day, I want to keep a reminder of the Hive with me—you all mean so much, and this has been such a wonderful outlet as I have continued my planning. So, I thought it would be fun to carry a little pint-sized bit of bee love with me!

Like Pain au Chocolat and other bees before me, I decided that I absolutely needed an itty bitty candy apple charm that replicated my adorable moniker. Mrs. Tartlet pointed me in the direction of Etsy seller Petit Plat. I checked out her work and was blown away by her teensy, amazing little creations. Her food miniatures look so life-like! (I am really infatuated with her mini “English Breakfast” plate.)

Anyway, she didn’t have a candy apple on her site, but she said that she could whip one up for me. I could not be more pleased with how it turned out!


I am a little bit in love with cool Etsy packaging. Sellers are really stepping up their game in the creativity department!



Look familiar?



I love the little green bow, and the way she made the “candy” pool at the bottom. It looks so realistic; Stéphanie did such a great job. I love my little mini me!

So, Hive, help me out here. Where shall I keep the charm on our wedding day? Sewn onto a ribbon, or something, on my bouquet? Incorporated into my shoes somehow, like Mrs. Elephant? Sewn into my dress? Some other way that I’m not considering at the moment? I’m leaning towards the shoe option, but would love to hear your creative ideas!

    It’s soo cute!! Definitely bouquet, and just flip it around when you don’t want it shown?

    I totally want an Anchor or some Macaron earrings! Thanks for the site.

    OMG so Cute. Must have one of my own! I love the idea of attaching it to your bouquet. My worry about attaching the little apple to your shoes is that it would bounce all over the place and maybe fall off. That would be a sad day.

    That is so cute and I think it would be charming if it was on your bouquet!

    So cute! I think putting it on your bouquet would be adorable. But you probably will only have your bouquet for an hour or so. Maybe on a garter or your shoes. So many options!

    Ahhh! I can’t believe how perfect it is! I kind of just want to gobble it up. I wonder what I’d do with a tiny pair of socks if I got something like this done?
