Send wedding guests away with pretty party favors. We're sharing our favorite DIY wedding favors, including sweet treats and gorgeous gifts.
Is the groom a grilling master? Give guests the secret to his best-loved recipe with custom spice blends. To create the blends, simply scale up the recipe and pack into metal tins.
Take everyone right back to childhood with personal s'mores kits perfect for backyard weddings and outdoor summer receptions. To get the look, simply fold a cloth napkin into empty berry baskets. Then fill with the traditional s'more fixings like graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate.
Have a signature recipe friends are always asking for? Give them what they want with custom recipe cards. For the sweetest presentation, pack the cards in brown paper bags and add a sprig of fresh herbs like rosemary or dill flowers.
Go ahead, indulge! Perfect for after dinner, boxes of sweet chocolate bark do double duty as dessert and party favors. We've topped this version with our favorite loose tea blend.
Love the look of expensive copper-dipped wine glasses? Make them yourself for a fraction of the cost! Using painter's tape, cover the glasses but leave the stem exposed. Coat the stem with copper spray paint, and you're done!
Send guests home with a fragrant reminder of your fresh spring wedding. To create the herb wreaths, simply twist fresh herbs around a circular wire frame. Having a big reception? Make mini-wreaths!
Planning an outdoor evening reception? Turn guest's gazes to the sky with printed constellation maps. Choose your favorite constellations and print them on personalized cards.
Keep late-night reception cravings at bay with a stocked snack bar. Wedding goers will love filling take-home bags with salty snack mixes, nuts, and candy.
Personalize a wine bottle for each table or each guest using an engagement photo. Print it 2-1/2 inches high on white or ivory cardstock, allowing approximately 4 inches below the picture for a handwritten message and embellishments.
Candy doesn't get cuter than this! Bright orange candied peels make the perfect summer wedding favor. Make the orange peels ahead and store in airtight glass jars.
Get perfectly baked cookies every time!
Use store-bought journals as wedding reception accents and favors. If the journal has a window in the cover, embellish the page underneath with a short sentiment or tiny accent. If it's solid, use stickers or chipboard accents to liven up the cover.
Skip basic wedding cake and get creative with a cookie bar. Give guests empty bakery boxes and let them mix and match. For an extra special touch, include recipe cards and ribbon to pretty-up the package.
