I’m trying to decide which favor would be best. I was originally going to go with getting the cheap $.76 terra cotta pots from michaels/jo anns and then buy a bunch of flower seeds in bulk, put the flowers in the pot, tie with a ribbon and voila. It’d fit our wedding since it’s in the Spring (kinda :)).
But then my sister-in-law showed me these mini pie in a jar favors and they are too cute.
And I was also considering making my own cookie mix in a bag, personalizing the bags.
The last two would fit swell since we’re having a light afternoon dessert reception, it’s “sweet” haha.
I might not do exactly that… but it’s cute.
I would make my own from scratch, but this is the site with the photo: http://www.beau-coup.com/personalized-cookie-mix-favors.htm
Idea read on a blog, http://www.hanle-productions.com/wordpress/2010/01/27/mini-pie-favors/, originally from: http://www.ourbestbites.com/2009/09/single-serving-pie-in-jar.html
help me decide!! thanks girls :):)
(PS not sure what the price differences for each one would be)

I’d go with the cookie mix because it will travel well. The other two may not travel well either driving in heat nor going through an airport. Plus I love to make cookies, so I’m a sucker for that idea!

I like the flower one because it more something that will remind them of the good time at the wedding after it past.. my brother did little pine trees and everyone went home and planted it and it was sweet.. I know alot of people like it because it was different

Cookie mix! Because your guests can make them and think of you and your fun wedding and those bags are super cute. Plus, while being cute I’d kinda feel awkward trying to eat pie out of a jar with a teaspoon! They are super cute though! I think edible favours are the best, less likely to be left behind. The cookie mix seems like it might be a more budget friendly option – PLUS you have to be able to transport ALL of your favours to your venue!

I like the pots with the seeds idea. I think the pie idea is super cute but I’d be concerned about it staying fresh.
