FI and I are coffee addicts! And there is a lovely little local roaster that makes the BEST coffee… so we plan on sharing it with our friends and family. 🙂
Our venue is in the woods, and a bit rustic (And absolutely gorgeous, if I do say so myself!! I loveeee my venue!):
So I thought burlap would go very well with it. 🙂
I stenciled on “CAFE” onto 100 4″X6″ bags, and we’ll be filling them each with 2.5 oz of coffee beans, and tying them with a little blue bow to go with our color scheme.
Here’s the start:

@creativeplannertobee: 😀 Thanks!! I loveee this rustic theme, so easy to work with – all the imperfections in each of my DIY projects actually look intentional. Haha.

@lovelove1028: Wow super cute! You are so creative. Love the inside of the venue as well…only got to see the outside on another post!

@Olive-Popeye: Thanks very much!! I’m so in love with the venue.. It’s perfectly “us.” And the place specializes in weddings, and has everything on site, and includes a wedding coordinator to help out! Food and cake is included, there’s a salon for hair/nails right on site, hotel rooms, they have an in-house DJ and photographer, etc.. It’s all been wonderfully easy. 🙂
And they offered a TON of favors, too, but I really wanted to use our local coffee and this way was cheaper than paying them for coffee favors AND our own coffee to use!

Gosh, those look awesome! I want to do something like this for my future wedding. I love the idea of coffee or other similar edibles/drinkables as gifts.
May I know where your venue is located?

Awesome! You bees are always talented! So your color theme is blue? I prefer sky blue.

Thanks everyone!! 😀
@Emma94: Thank you! 🙂 I actually typically prefer sky blue, too (or light teal/aqua!)… but I LOVE blue orchids, and my girls fell in love with a beautiful dress that matched perfectly with the flowers, so my blue is more of a cobalt blue:

@xdaydreams05x: Thanks!! 😀 That’s what I’m hoping for…. most people like coffee, or have a coffee-drinker in their household!
I thought of doing half coffee and half loose tea, but the tea just doesn’t go as well with the burlap bags… Haha. 🙂
