We're going to have a bamboo coaster, 1 oz jar of local (raw, organic, unfiltered) honey and two bags of organic tea, one chamomile and the other a mint blend. What are you going to use for favors? Show pics if you have them!
Haven't put them together yet. I'm going to make sugar cookies in the shape of a car (bought the butter today). Then I'll pipe each guest's name on their favor and use them as placecards. Also doing another cookie with two hearts joined and "N + R" on them
My MOH and I will be making cupcake bites. They are just like cakepops, except instead if sticking the cake on a stick, we place it in a chocolate mold, then dip the top in a different color. They are super cute and easier to make. Banging out 100+ will be no problem because MOH actually have a cakepop and cupcake business. I'm super excited to give them out to my and FH's extended family who haven't tried them yet. Now to think of something cute and witty to attach on the tag...
We're giving our guests a bottle of pink champagne with a customized label and two champagne flutes. Sounds kind of extravagant I know but a close friend of ours owns a bar and is helping us purchase the bottles from their distributer. and we bought the champagne glasses at IKEA on sale-6 glasses for $1. Score!
I'm going to make lucky bamboo, but I'm going to do it per couple and not per person. At our local nursery, they sell the bamboo shoots individually so I'm going to buy a few, buy some mini pots, some pretty stones to fill them and some spray paint and glitter/ ribbon.
Edit- I'm also considing just putting the bamboo shoots in tall shot glasses, that way I don't have to paint them (save on paint) and because the shot glasses are smaller than the mini pots, I don't have to fill them up so much with stone).
Since my fiancé and I do a ton of outdoors things like camping we are doing s'more favors. I'm doing half of the favors plain chocolate and the other half a peanut butter cup. Our guests can pick which one they want.
For the creative people, I once saw a very cool (and no doubt cost effective) idea:
Orange soap. But soap that actually look like oranges. I guess you could do lemon or grapefruit too.
You just get glycerin soap in the colour fruit you want, get the essential oil in the flavour fruit, then you get a loofah.
You must have a round vase to do this.
Just melt the soap, add some essential oils and make sure it is runny. Then you place the loofah in the middle of the vase, pour the soap over it and wait for it to harden. Then you take it out the vase and cut it into slices. Put it in a pretty bag or box and there you go.
We are going with lottery scratch off tickets. We will place the ticket in a glassine envelope, with a 2014 penny, put a sticker on the front that says "Lucky in Love" and a sticker to hold the flap closed that has our monogram on it. On top of each envelope, we will place a takeout box full of jelly beans or jelly bellies, not sure which. Mixes fun and edible, and only costs us $197 plus tax
