    The macaroons look yummy!  I would be very excited to receieve that as a favor, if I were one of your guests! 🙂  I’m also a big fan (pun intended!) of the fan idea….LOVE that you’re thinking of using them as the programs too…great way to have one item serve two purposes!  Very clever 🙂

    Plants… cute, but I mean, how many people would plant them… care for them… use them. It probably would end up as a waste of money.

    I’m all for edible favors, but perhaps there’s another option. Cherries have pits.. do you want your guests awkwardly spitting out their cherry pits at the reception? Macarons are in my understanding very labor-intensive and rather hard to make. Perhaps another baking project that’s a little more fail-proof and less breakable? Cookies? Truffles (my sister’s making some as our favors, and they’re really pretty easy)? Chocolate-covered something? Some other berry or fruit without pits?

    I love the idea of blueberries since it is my favorite fruit! But, as far as favors are concerned, I wonder if it might be too hard to keep it fresh; may have to deal with blueberry stains if not packaged properly; and will you wash it beforehand?…I think generally it’s better to stay away from perishables…especially if it’s going to be a warm/hot summer day…just my two cents!

    If you like the blueberry idea but are concerned about using the fresh berries then you could go with some chocolate covered ones from harry and david.  You can buy big bags of them from the stores – they run sales all the time for buy2 get 1 free.  They don’t melt as easily as normal chocolates do and the color is pretty close to actualy blueberry color.  Downside, they are only available in the stores but a store might be willing to ship if you don’t have one locally.  Or you could contact harry and david and they might be willing to sell them to you in bulk.  And they are delicious!

    I thought of that picture of the cherries in a bag as soon as I read this thread! I think that would be perfect!

    Could you somehow fit in the macarons too? If I could click twice, I would click the macarons! I love them!!!!

    What’s wrong with the little glassine bags for the blueberries? I think they’re soo dainty, simple, and beautiful.

    Could you make jam with the blueberries?  There might be enough blueberries in your parents’ yard to make enough jam for everyone?  You could give one per couple/family.
