I’d like to use cute little boxes with labels on them for escort cards and fill them with something fun for the guests.The boxes are light blue and the labels will be red to match my wedding colors.
So what should I fill them with? So far I’ve thought of silver Hershey’s kisses, which are cheap and would look good. But we are already having cookies for favors so I’m a bit hesitant to do another box of sweets. Any ideas on what else might work?

I think sweets would be cheapest, but you could also do bubbles for your going away maybe? Or little jars of honey or mustard? Lottery tickets?
Is there any food or small item that represents you and FI? Perhaps you could put recipes for dinner in there? Or fact cards about the people sitting around them?
That’s all I’ve got, sorry!

After dinner mints? That is still the “sweets” route though.
I think Hershey’s kisses would be great! Really, can you ever have too many sweets?

I was just gonna say some chocolates, or candies. Oh, cookies! I’d be thrilled with extra sweet stuff though… I might have a problem 🙂
So, maybe some soap or bath beads. I’ve seen vegetable or flower seeds. Hmmm… that’s tough. I’m gonna keep thinking…

How big are they? That might help you decide what will fit.

how about a salty snack for a change up? Like roasted almonds or pretzels or something along those lines?

Oooh, I like the roasted almonds idea. I second that!

@smyley – they’re not that big: 3x3x3 inches.
Thanks for the ideas everyone – keep them coming 🙂
