    Autumn Sweetness: Honey Favors

    Posted by Michal

    We’ve posted before about giving out honey as parting gifts and favors, but I’ve found new inspiration that I just had to share. These DIY honey favors are absolutely gorgeous. Honey is a great transitional favor from summer into autumn, and can be carried into your desserts and even color scheme as well.

    Summer’s End – Maine Blueberry Favors

    Posted by Michal

    Simple, sweet, DIY favors for these last few precious days of summer should include summer fruit – blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries. Make your own jam or buy one of my favorites, Stonewall Kitchen’s Wild Maine Blueberry Jam. Create a custom label with your names and date, or use as place cards for a double-duty favor. Either way your guests will go home happy, with a sweet taste of summer to savor for later.

    Buzz Kill

    Posted by Michal

    Summer weddings are beautiful, but as the sun sets the descending gnats and mosquitoes can be quite the buzz kill. Ward them off with these natural and chemical-free bug repellents, a great item to have on hand for guests to use. A sprinkle of attractive citronella candles around your event helps as well!

    I love these Cowgirl Cookie gifts by Bakerella, perfect for wedding shower favors or bachelorette party gifts. Mixes are a wonderful gift because they can be made at any time, and are so pretty to decorate. Mason jars are also a great way to serve ready-to-eat desserts as well, especially summer berry mousses, mini pies, shortcakes and milkshakes!
