Wedding Favors from the Farmer’s Market

A trip to the Farmer’s Market gave us an inspiration for some unique wedding favors.  Fruits in miniature baskets at every table setting is a fresh and lovely treat for your guests.  This is a fresh wedding favor idea for an outdoor wedding or a wedding in a country setting.  Small fruit basket wedding favors are also perfect for weddings that take place in orchards or vineyards.  The fruits could be picked up from a local farmer’s market in bulk or perhaps picked from the orchards or farm that you are holding your celebration at.   Colorful berries or grapes are perfect for miniature baskets.  Select a fruit that is in season and coordinate it with your theme or wedding colors.

Unique Wedding Favors with Fennel Candy

September 26th, 2013

Fennel Candy is not your traditional candy used as wedding favors, however this Indian sweet treat is an after dinner must for most Indians and will make a lovely gesture for an Indian Wedding if presented as a wedding favor in organza pouches or a vellum envelope with personalized favor tags.  It’s simple and pretty.  The colorful candy is pretty and light, so it would make a lovely mint wedding favor substitute for not only Indian Weddings, but any one looking for a more unique wedding favor idea.  So, for unique wedding favors, try fennel candy rather than Jordan almonds or mints.

Miniature Jars are becoming popular for wedding favors.  They can be lovely and elegant as well as a display for shabby chic wedding favors  We love the idea of sea salts in hinged jars for wedding favors.  Whether bath salts or gourmet Himalayan sea salt, “The Salt of Life is Love”.  Put that on your favor tags with jars of salt for a lovely new idea in wedding favor.  It is a great idea for beach weddings or country weddings.  It will represent a culinary couple elegantly.  Other ideas for the hinged jars which can be personalized are honey, homemade vanilla extract or lemon curd.  Be creative and fill the jars with anything you like to create unique wedding favors.
