Fairyfolk Wedding Boutique
Uber-charming wedding favors and decorations.
What does Fairyfolk make you think of? Magical people with sparkly fairy dust shimmering on every surface of their clothing and skin? Well, these wedding favors and decorations are so charming that you could almost believe that they were made by real fairy folks.
Wedding favors and decorations are amongst the array of handmade items that Donna “Donni” Webber creates. As an artist, Donni feels deeply connected to the mediums she works with, that are warm and natural materials rich in texture. Her special attention to detail provides an aura of magical energy that surrounds her crafts. Felting and needlework are signatures of the Fairyfolk collection. Recognizing the magic in the details of a bride’s special day, Donni works to achieve a reflection of that magic in her art.
“I am inspired by little glimpses of magic, the soft glittering of the morning light, the emerald green of a mossy place.”
Donni welcomes and thrives on custom orders online at Fairyfolk Wedding Boutique. Her desire is to provide creations that will not only satisfy, but exceed, a bride’s expectations for the décor that is to surround her on her wedding day. To get a better understanding of this magical business, we got to ask Donni a few personal questions…
Urbanette Magazine: Fairyfolk Weddings handmade decor is unique and detailed; you even describe it as ‘magical’ – your inspiration seems to come from love of nature and the ‘magic’ of nature; how did that come to inspire a business geared toward weddings?
Donni Webber: I am inspired by little glimpses of magic, the soft glittering of the morning light, the emerald green of a mossy place. A wedding is such a magical day and there are many special details that can add to the enchanting feeling of love and romance. Many small details can make such a huge difference.
Urbanette: You pride yourself on details; what has been the most thrilling and challenging request submitted to you to date?
Donni: I created the table decorations for a wedding that had 300 guests. The venue was in a wooded area and the bride and groom wanted an Enchanted Woodland theme. Oh… it was magical. Hundreds of tiny vine nest escort cards with little speckled robins eggs nestled inside them, showing each guest where to sit at the huge rustic tables. Red toadstools hanging from the mossy branches of the trees. Mossy centerpieces with splashes of yellow felted Craspedia flowers. There were fairy lights everywhere. The natural hues of the moss and woods with the splashes of reds and yellows and blues from my felted goodies was truly enchanting.
“To me, everything in nature is inspiring and magical.”
Urbanette: You have a vast array of products for someone’s special wedding day – can you give us an overview?
Donni: I work with natural materials like wood and vine and felted wool. Everything has a soft and romantic feeling to it. I specialize in table settings and decorations, felted wool bridal bouquets, colorful and unique boutonnieres for the groom, enchanting and magical ring pillows and beautiful felted garlands and wedding cake toppers. To me, everything in nature is inspiring and magical.
Urbanette: What are your favorite items to craft and why?
Donni: I love making the crocheted lace and vine nest ring-pillows. Felting wool in to the little hearts that the rings will sit upon for the wedding ceremony is a deep honor for me. As I work and shape the wool, I think of the lovers whose symbols of commitment will sit upon the heart I am creating and I wish them love and happiness and true beauty in their lives together. I feel the magic that their union has created in the world and humbled by it. I truly love what I do.
