Top 10 DIY Wedding Favor Ideas – by Mathews Manor Alabama Wedding Venue
Here at Mathews Manor, we love it when Brides and Grooms bring in DIY party favors for their guests. Party favors are a great way to show your guests a little appreciation for attending your big day – and DIY favors makes it easier to customize your favors to match your wedding style! It’s such a neat way to incorporate a little bit of your own personality into the celebration. Because there are so many cute ideas available for DIY wedding favors, we decided to compile a top 10 list of our favorite ideas from all over the web!
These birdseed treats are a great way to add a little “rustic” and “all natural” to your event! The guests can take these home, hang them in their porch or on a tree branch, and watch all the beautiful birds visit their home!
Burlap is IN! This is a really cute remake of the traditional “tulle” wrapped treats. Fill your little home made bags with chocolate covered peanuts, jordan almonds, M&Ms Candies, or any small treat you want to share with your guests. Customize them even more by printing cute “Thank You” tags to tie around them!
Everyone loves home made cookies! There is no better way to give you guests the freshest baked goods than to encourage them to bake them at home! There are hundreds of recipes online for cookies, quick breads, and even granola bars. Print the recipe onto a cute tag or sticker and attach to a mason jar!
If you DO give your guests cookies, why not wrap them in paper CD covers? They are very inexpensive, and look simply adorable! Wrap them with twine, string, or ribbon, and print a cute tag to go with it.
A great way to show your guests appreciation is with something yummy! Cupcakes can easily be packaged in small mason jars. You can even substitute cupcakes for home made muffins!
For those who are a little more health conscious, give your guests something that’s not only delicious – but that’s actually good for them! Mix up different types of granola and package them in bags or jars with cute labels.
Ever wanted to share that yummy jelly recipe you got from your grandmother with all of your friends? This is the perfect time to do it! Put home made jelly or jam in jars. Even fruited butters – apple butter, cherry butter, peanut butter – are a great idea!
Not all party favors have to be edible! Another great idea is to make a mix cd for your guests. Put your favorite love songs, your best party mix, or even the score to your wedding on discs and print out a cute custom label.
Another great DIY party favor is simply – bars of soap! You can find recipes online to make them yourself – combine different flowers, oatmeal, and herbs to make custom scents that your friends and family will love. If you don’t want to make them yourself, etsy.com sellers offer tons of cute, custom labeled soaps that you can purchase!
Last but not least, potted plants! Give your guests the gift of life with adorable terra cotta potted succulents. Succulents are easy to take care of, and they are a cute way to show your guests you love them. Guests can place them in their home, and think of you every time they see their cute new decoration!
