My Fiance’s dad makes homemade jelly. What do you think about this as a favor for our wedding?
Has anyone seen pictures of cute packaging for these? I need to get ideas if we are going to do this!

I think it’s adorable! The only thing I’ve seen is mason jars.

I think the small round size of mason jar with a cloth top (maybe matching your colors) and a raffia tie is so cute!

I think that is a great favor… Nothing like homemade!
You can do something like this with the mason jars…

i love doctorgirl’s suggestion. i think it would look great w/ unbleached cotton or gingham top – but it really depends on what the look of your wedding is.

I think it’s a good idea! Everyone loves edible favors : )
There are all sorts of ways you can make mason jars cute. You can make labels for the lid and tie with a ribbon, or maybe take some coordinating fabric and cover the lid and add a little tag?
There are also really cute “quilted” jars that you might like, depending on the rest of the decor.

Sounds like a great idea to me! Jam=yummy!

My daughter and her fi did homemade strawberry jam and they are also doing salsa favors for the RD..about 40 people (OTT and bridal party) Since they have a hollywood/movie/glam black and white and red wedding we were worried it would be too country. so, they painted the jar lds black, printed a monogram the size of the flat lid and glued on top…they put a black and white polka dot ribben round with a red bow and a silver star. They are adorable. I’ll try to get a picture to post.
The jam/salsa idea is that love is sweet AND spicy!

That sounds really good and very personal.

I think it’s a great idea! I went to a wedding a few years ago where they did this… small jars of homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam with a note that said “Thanks for jammin’ with us!” It was really cute (and tasty!).
They packaged them in small hexagonal glass jars like this: http://www.allforyourwedding.com/categories_name-c-197_57_119/favor.jars.perfect.for.jams.honey.jelly.more.set.4.wedding-p-881/currency/USD

I love it! My MOH used hot fudge syrup as favors and they doubled as escort cards. I would recommend the same. Use the small jars. You could add the escort card part as a tag tied on, or as a sticker on top like my MOH did. I wish I had pictures of hers, they were wonderful!

You can never go wrong with edibles, especially homemade. Your guests would surely appreciate it. I would use regular canning jars. I like the fabric squares in the pictures above. Those definitely add a homemade feel to it, which there is nothing wrong with.
