Vintage, handcrafted goodies from Vintage Twee


How exquisite are these rose cone favours handcrafted from vintage music sheets?  They are just one of series of beautifully made favours and decorative items from Joanne of Vintage Twee.

At only 26 years old she is following a life-long dream to turn her love of making into a business.  Lucky for us!  Joanne told me her “aim is to add a touch of English authenticity to your special occasion” with her range of unique favours, table centrepieces and dining accessories.

Her work is inspired by her “British heritage, love for tea and classic romance and imagery from a bygone era.”  Vintage Twee’s pretty creations are perfect for a vintage themed wedding, bridal shower, or a party.

Every item is produced by Vintage Twee and is individually handcrafted – a truly unique keepsake.  Just like these vintage music sheet boxes – perfect wedding favours!
