I think it’s adorable!  The only thing I’ve seen is mason jars.

I think the small round size of mason jar with a cloth top (maybe matching your colors) and a raffia tie is so cute!

i love doctorgirl’s suggestion. i think it would look great w/ unbleached cotton or gingham top – but it really depends on what the look of your wedding is.

I think it’s a good idea!  Everyone loves edible favors : )

There are all sorts of ways you can make mason jars cute. You can make labels for the lid and tie with a ribbon, or maybe take some coordinating fabric and cover the lid and add a little tag?

There are also really cute “quilted” jars that you might like, depending on the rest of the decor.

My daughter and her fi did homemade strawberry jam and they are also doing salsa favors for the Rehearsal Dinner..about 40 people (OTT and bridal party) Since they have a hollywood/movie/glam black and white and red wedding we were worried it would be too country. so, they painted the jar lds black, printed a monogram the size of the flat lid and glued on top…they put a black and white polka dot ribben round with a red bow and a silver star. They are adorable. I’ll try to get a picture to post.

The jam/salsa idea is that love is sweet AND spicy!

I think it’s a great idea!  I went to a wedding a few years ago where they did this… small jars of homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam with a note that said “Thanks for jammin’ with us!”  It was really cute (and tasty!). 

They packaged them in small hexagonal glass jars like this:  http://www.allforyourwedding.com/categories_name-c-197_57_119/favor.jars.perfect.for.jams.honey.jelly.more.set.4.wedding-p-881/currency/USD

I love it! My Maid/Matron of Honor used hot fudge syrup as favors and they doubled as escort cards. I would recommend the same. Use the small jars. You could add the escort card part as a tag tied on, or as a sticker on top like my Maid/Matron of Honor did. I wish I had pictures of hers, they were wonderful!

You can never go wrong with edibles, especially homemade. Your guests would surely appreciate it. I would use regular canning jars. I like the fabric squares in the pictures above. Those definitely add a homemade feel to it, which there is nothing wrong with.
