What are the current “trendy” favors these days? I feel like one is french macarons – I’ve seen them over the past few months at several places – at big parties I’ve attended, in magazines and tv shows as favors at nice weddings and big events. I haven’t been to a wedding lately where I’ve seen them as favors and after having looked into pricing, I think I know why – to have 4 per guest and at no lower than $1.20 per macron at least in Los Angeles + the cost of nice packaging, that’s over $7 per guest.
I feel like before it was wine glasses and wine stoppers. And of course the usual is 2 pieces of truffles.
I want to stay with edibles, and I’m also starting to see (not as prevalent as macrons tho) fancy marshmallows – fancy meaning they look beautiful packaged in white and blush (which are in my color palette).
Are marshmallows a good idea as a favor – I don’t know if I would like that as a guest just because I’d think they are beautiful, but what do I do with them? Friends have said you just eat them by themselves. But I’ve never just munched on marshmallows.
So what non-DIY edibles are you ordering as your favors?
