Gifts in Jar? Easy and Taste So Good!

(This in Kristan's (of Confessions of A Cookbook Queen) Great Photo! And using those disposable spoons and twine and recyclable jars are just more reasons to recommend this for Eco-friendly brides!)

Desserts in a jar...hmmm...not messy, easy to transport, show off your creativity, yes I think that all adds up to a great idea for a wedding sweet table or wedding favor for the DIY bride. I've seen many versions of these on the web but the one that makes my mouth water is by Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. (use that link to find this recipe (with yet more photos as well as the exact recipe) and other creative ideas Kristan offers her readers on a regular basis!) Check out other recipes for cupcakes in a jar as well!

Also don't forget you could use peppermint flavoring with some red food coloring for a wedding with a pink theme. It's all in the details ladies!

Think how much your guests will enjoy both the taste and presentation of this well thought out gift from you and your new spouse. Now head over to Kristan's blog for more great ideas to make your mouth water!

Hot Chocolate To Go -- Handmade Projects For Your Wedding

These are so simple. Buy the jars and sterilize them. Let dry overnight so they are all the way dry. Fill with high quality cocoa mix and seal. Add decorations by using a ribbon in your bridal colors or in brown to accent the cocoa, and add a snowflake punch or if you are having a spring/summer wedding try butterflies etc. (see your craft store for assorted punches). Add a jewel in the center for a little bling. This is so easy! Done in two days, and one of those days is the one you spend sterilizing the jars.

Shower Favors that Look Yummy!

Look closely. Then look again! These "cakes" are actually tea towel cakes. They look like delicious treats to eat but are actually soft hand towels to use as favors for your guests.  They are 100% cotton towels made to look like real pastries.  Great for shower gifts! Available from Wedding Paper Divas if you're looking for a cute idea for shower favors.

Photo Candy Bars

Photo Candy Bars from Kiss the Groom Web Site

Consider covering your full size candy bars as wedding favors covered with photos from the life of the bride and groom. This sweet idea is perfect for favors and will add a new dimension to wedding decor as you spread them out on a table. A different way to show the life of the bride and groom, use it instead of a slide show.
