winter inspiration: favors!


to finally kick-off the winter inspiration series, winter favors are at the top of the list for today!  there are so many creative and unique ideas out there that i could have gone on forever.  below are some of my top finds :)

the fact that this includes the lovely scent of evergreen paired with one of my favorite things -burlap- makes this favor on the top of my list.  and 10 years from now the tree will still be growing and your guest will remember your special day as the years pass by.
