fall inspiration series part 5: favors! (guest blogger rachael)

from jacin: today's fall inspiration (twitter #fallinspiration) post comes to you from none other than rachael (love the spelling of her name!) from rachael passing notes.  rachael is a fashionista, foodonista, bloggernia, and designer extraordinaire and her blog is just wonderful - check it out!  thanks rachael for the absolutely gorgeous inspiration today - fall brides - take note!  :)

from Rachael: I'm thrilled to be a part of the Fall Inspiration series and very excited to be covering the topic of fall wedding favors! Wedding favors are the one item that guests can take back with them to remember your special day, and the best part is that they can be as simple as a jar of honey or as decadent as miniature homemade cherry pies in a jar! I also love that wedding favors allow for the bride and groom to share something with their guests that is truly personal. My favorite wedding favors are those that have a story behind them. For instance, a box full of macaroons from the pastry shop where you enjoyed dessert after your first date. Can you tell that I'm a hopeless romantic?!

The other thing that I love about favors is how creative they can be. I'm smitten with these cigars wrapped with a lottery ticket. What a fun idea, and one that the men will truly enjoy!

  5. Great idea. I love the jars of whipped honey.

  6. I wonder how easy it is to make those cherry tarts in a jar. Would love to make something for my guests, just wondering if perishable goods is a good idea... I love it though.
    Thanks for this inspiration. Will look into it!

  7. Those mini cherry pies look delicious!! Always a fan of edible favors. But I love the idea of giving a favor to guests that mean something. Very sweet. The cigars and lottery tickets are perfect for guys! And the heart bird seed is incredibly cute! Awesome round-up, Rachael!
