I need some suggestions/help. Our original favour vendor fell through after all the flooding that happened in Alberta, and now my fiance and I are scrambling for a new idea with two and a half months to go.
We’ve been admiring the idea of cookie mixes for our winter wedding, but our theme is very ice castle/winter wonderland/snowflakes, and I’m not a fan of the standard mason jar look. Has anybody tried the cookie/hot chocolate/cake mix favour idea, but used different containers? Any inexpensive canisters/bags I could use instead?

@WinterSolsticeBride: since we are headed for the holidays, lots of dollar store type places have winter tins and canisters that could be used

@WinterSolsticeBride: what about hermetic glass jars like this http://www.containerstore.com/shop/kitchen/foodStorage/leftoversGlass?productId=10011037&N=78635
or maybe do them up in celophane bags and place into a mug? What kind of favor were you planning?

Thanks for the ideas, I love the winter tins or mugs as possibilities.

@WinterSolsticeBride: i love the idea of a clear coffee mug with hot chocolate. or you can just make those clear cones packages of hot chocolate and marshmallows.

@WinterSolsticeBride: I had a look on Pinterest and found tons of cute ideas! I think most packaging really works best if your cookies are un-iced. Finding packaging for iced cookies was kind of a pain in the butt.
A cute cardboard package like this would work for itced cookies, You might have to shape it slightly wider, but it would be so great for a winter wedding.
I also like the idea of putting them in cardboard boxes and decorating with string and a sprig of seasonal foliage.
Clear boxes are really cute.
I think paper bags are a good idea too.

@WinterSolsticeBride: I also love this idea, which you could pretty much put anything in.
