So I bought these cute bags when we were planning on having a candy bar. Scraped that. Then I was going to fill them with trail mix and even made a cute “happy trails” sign. Might be scraped since we’re thinking of putting them on each place setting. Should we stick with trail mix or do something else? And if so, what?
The bags are 5×6 and I have awesometastic stickers with which to seal them. We have less than a month and my mom wants truffles or something snazzy but I would think those would have to be in a box, no?

I really like the “happy trails”, cute!

big cookies or another type of “flat” pastry?
edit: I think these bags are bigger than I originally thought – you could do muffins or something like that too.
in short, anything! what’s your theme?

Just kidding. Well, sort of, I love poptarts!
What about chocolate covered pretzels? You could do the larger ones and just put 2 in each bag. Or I like MrsTtheArmy11’s idea for cookies!!

@misschickpea: actually pop tarts could be fun! I’ve seen plenty of homemade ones where you can use the ready-made pie pastry, though you might have to make them all the day before. unless they freeze well. Hmm.

I like the cookie idea too! Either one big cookie or a few smaller cookies. As a guest I would love to receive cookies!

Cookies! They are simple, easy to do in big batches, and freeze well. You could do a variety of flavors or just one. You could maybe even have a cookie bar?

i’m going to see if we can locate a bakery that makes palmiers (or make our own), if not it’ll either be some other kind of cookie or we’ll go back to the trail mix idea! my mom would have a conniption if i suggested poptarts lol – she already hates the trail mix idea!
@MrsTtheArmy11: no theme per say unless you count modern-chinese-argentine-stripes-and-reds-and-fuschias as one!
