what about adding a little bit of candy to the jar and placing the note on top rolled up and tied with a cute ribbon.  I think that’d be a cute gift!

I agree with adding a little candy and a ribbon I would love it!

How many guests are you having? A personal note to each person is really sweet, but don’t set yourself up for HOURS of handwriting notes!!! I love the jars and I like TaterTot’s idea of adding the note on the top or side, but still filling the jar with candy or popcorn kernels.

I’d fill them. I know they’re not technically empty if you put a note inside them, but I’ve always heard people say it’s bad luck to give an empty box and I’d feel the same way about an empty jar if I were feeling particularly superstitious on any given day. 😉 A little candy would be great!

i love the idea of doing a ‘message in a bottle’ type favor. it seems a wonderful way to make the day personal for each guest.

I think they would make really cute place cards.  You could fill them with simple candy and a ‘Thanks for coming’ note.  People could erase their names off the front and write what they wanted when they got home.  I would actually love a favor like this!

Rustic is not my style so I would hate to say that I would probably leave those behind whether they were filled or not. If there was a note I would read it but that too would eventually end up in the trash..

I love the idea! And it’s useful for your guests later! I say do it!

I like the one with the lid because it is more useable for people.  The problem with a lot of non-edible favors is it ends up being clutter or in the garbage so you want it to be as useful as possible.

I’d fill em and save the note for the Thank You card.
