I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. And I believe that packaging constitutes an important part of purchase and savour pleasure. That’s why I refuse to pack my macarons in white cardboard boxes with grey interiors.
Still in the experimental stage, there have been several box designs since I started selling the macarons online last Dec. Here’s the collection:
My favourite of all time – A plastic ball filled with Christmas-themed Macarons for my German language teacher. It may find its way onto Christmas Trees this coming festive season.
Red, a favourite Christmas colours with a transparent band of Christmas Tree glass balls.
Polka Dots are always irresistable! January was the month of Pink Polka Dots.
I found this lovely pink paper at a local home decor shop, Nanu Nana. Pink continues as the theme colour in February.
A customer wanted to give her friends something special during graduation. I made them these boxes out of my favourite pink paper. Everyone was rather pleased.
Another box for the same customer, just for variation. This gift wrap was found at another home decor shop, Home Depot. I love its elegance, black with floral prints in gold.
Another customer ordered the macarons as a birthday gift and requested for a message to be included. I parted with a precious butterfly for Peggy, her friend.
Someone told me that the colour purple represents the soul. Purple became the colour of the month for April, with the hope that the macarons satisfy all gourmet souls out there.
June came with new inspirations from old themes. I fell in love with the pink/brown and blue/brown combination a couple of years ago. When I found this bronzy brown gift wrap at Home Depot, I knew the latest box design will stay for some months. As of now, macarons are still being sent in these cheery blue boxes.
After a meeting with WL in May, she sent me a PostPac with her packaging ideas. Gorgeous!
I begin to appreciate sunny yellow for packaging. Somehow it’s really cheery and complements the brown paper cases.
This green box is totally my style – girly and vintage.
If anyone has other suggestions, do let me know!
