The feature that is the most appealing about Swashington is the almost stern looking, straight letters which are unexpectedly interspersed with wild curls and embellishments. The designer, “Jason Walcott was moved to develop these interesting letterforms into a full typeface with all the swashy might he could muster.” Yep – that sums it up!!

This pretty-in-pink rose-scented homemade vinegar makes a beautiful wedding favour and is super easy to whip up. You just need to start it a week or two ahead to let the flavours infuse. Then all you need are some little bottles and a few decorations and you have your favours sorted!

It’s a nice idea to add in a few recipe suggestions for the vinegar too. Check out the bottom of this post for some ideas.

What you need:

- 1 litre white wine vinegar.

- Saucepan.

- 1 cup dried edible rose petals. I used Pariya brand from a specialty food store.

- Clean 5-cup capacity bottle or jar with lid.

- Funnel.

- Small bottles or jars with lids.

- Tags, twine, doilies etc to decorate.


Place the vinegar in a saucepan and heat until hot, but not boiling.  Place the rose petals in a large bottle/jar. Pour over the vinegar. Seal with a lid and set aside in a cool dark place. Leave for at least 1 week (up to 3 weeks), shaking daily. Strain the vinegar into the small bottles/jars and decorate.

Makes 1 litre

- This recipe can easily be doubled/tripled etc to whatever quantity you need.

- For a simple salad dressing combine 1/4 cup rose vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons honey, 1 small crushed garlic clove, salt and pepper.

- Use this vinegar in marinades for chicken and pork.

- Dilute vinegar with water to use as an aftersun spray.
