Bags!  They fit nicely in the ladies’ purses to take home 🙂  Provide six inch pieces of skinny ribbon or string to tie close.  Or those little circle stickers.

They don’t have them online, but Dollar Tree has some very nice clear plastic scoops/serving spoons.

I’ve seen alot of people use glassine pouches/bags, which are really cute and affordable. I’ve also seen regular paper bags and then offer stickers with something special printed on them for people to seal their bags. Uline has gusseted clear bags and then you can offer twist ties, baking twine, or ribbon to close. Good luck!

I saw people use those chinese takeout containers in colors with a custom sticker on it to seal or ribbons. I’ve seen them online on a bunch of websites like save on craft and efavormart.

I’m going to go for small paper bags for our lolly buffet (how appropriate given my screen name, lol). I want to get stickers made up to personalise them. I’ve been to weddings where organza pouches worked well too. Also had small noodle boxes before but I found they couldn’t fit as much in and were a bit of a pain to carry around as I couldn’t fit them in my purse/clutch.

Bags make more sense to me. Mini brown paper bags (or white ones with Your wedding logo, etc)!

I went to a restaurant supply store and bought mini plastic ziplock-type bags. I think it was 4×4 size. I added a sticker with our wedding logo and date to the bags to make it more personalized. I was also able to find plastic tongs and scoopers at that store as well.

I prefer bags as a guest because they are easier to carry.

We used bags and put personal labels on them 🙂 we found scoops and tongs at a bridal swap, thrift stores, dollar stores or party rental shops like Turkeys

We used take-out boxes.  But he’s Chinese, so it fit our sort-of theme (custom fortune cookies and everything).  🙂  I got translucent ones and designed a sticker that I printed myself, about 2″ round, and stuck on them all.
