A Charmed Life
A sterling silver four-leaf clover and a traditional turquoise and mother-of-pearl “evil eye” charm act as bridal party gifts, $163, by Liana Vourakis Authentics for Floris Special Events, florisspecialevents.com, on a bed of Jordan almonds and marzipan pebbles. “Greeks are very superstitious and believe the 'evil eye' protects and watches over you,” explains Costalas. “By giving it to her attendants, the bride is wishing them the same good fortune she had in finding her mate.” The favor sits in a custom box adorned with jasmine, $13, created by Marina Lassou for Floris Special Events, florisspecialevents.com. Favor tag, $3, from Red Bliss, redbliss.com.
