Still Deciding On Favors? Consider Thistle Farms For Your Wedding!

 At the ABG Sex and the City II party last summer, I first learned about Thistle Farms and their amazing work. At that point, I had already picked some edible favors for our guests but was totally intrigued by the idea of favors that support charity.

I was contacted by Carolyn at Thistle Farms to introduce me to their mission and ask that I do a blog feature here on Big Spoon Little Spoon. However, if you follow other Nashville bridal bloggers and newlyweds, you probably already know all about them through Louise at The Thirty Something Bride. Her feature from last year puts anything I can write here to shame.

Thistle Farms is a Nashville-based non-profit organization which has great wedding options that are earth-friendly, budget-conscious and support a great cause!

The hand made items are created by women who have survived lives of violence, prostitution and addiction.  Purchases of Thistle Farms products directly benefit the women who make them.  They have recently come up with some bridal-specific ideas including gift baskets full of our handmade bath and body products, perfect for brides to give to their bridesmaids or coordinators to give to their brides.  For more information about our custom bridal product, visit their website.

When you incorporate Thistle Farms into your wedding, you are showing others your belief in the power of love by personally helping women who are on the road to healing.

Now that you know all about them and their wonderful work and products, go check them out at a variety of places around Nashville, such as the Frist Center gift store, Fire Finch, Ten Thousand Villages and Wedding 101.
