Set the edible tone from the start with your edible wedding invitations. Imagine how excited your family and friends will be to open a beautiful gourmet cookie with your invitation printed right on it? You can even add graphics or a photo for an extra special touch. Of course, a paper copy of the invitation should also be included, because these cookies are just too good to sit around until after the party.Place Cards
We all know how hard it is to get your seating chart just right. Think about putting your seating assignments on custom wrapped candy bars OR a wedding cake cookie seating card. It is a whimsical way to set the tone of the party. There are many wrappers to choose from or you can design your own to complement the theme of your party. You can even include a picture.
After having enticed your guests with your delicious invites and place cards, keep the theme going with the table decorations. Since everyone expects to see flowers on the tables surprise your guests with something original and fun. How about an edible centerpiece that your guests can take home afterwards? Who can resist smiling at a bouquet of gourmet handcrafted cookies? A towering platter of chocolate covered strawberries or a lollipop bouquet will amaze your guests. Picture a centerpiece of beautifully wrapped chocolate bars that double as favors once the night is over. There are many creative options to choose from.
Some hostesses are opting to use fruit baskets as centerpieces and then donating them after the reception to local food banks or hospitals. Not only are these baskets beautiful to look at, but a small card sharing your intentions will make everyone feel good.
Candy and confection stations are a new trend for weddings. Take it a step further and tap into your guests' childhood memories with milk and cookies. Visualize a milk and cookie bar with all of your favorite cookies and a variety of plain and flavored milks for dunking. You can also put photographs on some or all of these cookies.Favors
