Nature Inspired Green Favors!

Check out the site plantamemory.com for some amazing green favor ideas!  The site offers a variety of unique and green favors, such as tree seedlings, ginger spice packets, and gerber daisy seed packets.

I especially love these herbal garden bookmarks, that can be planted and grown once guests are done using them as bookmarks!

Unique Favor Concept: The Wonder of the Whoopie Pie!

I spoke with Marissa this afternoon, the owner and baking genius behind wannahavacookie.com.  After reading about her whoopie pies in December’s issue of Real Simple magazine, my current non-wedding related favorite magazine, I just had to buy some whoopie pies.

I have the best memories of my mom and my Aunt Suzy sitting around the table with us on Sunday afternoons eating whoopie pies.  Part cake, part muffin, with all that delicious buttercream….Seriously, how can you go wrong?  Life’s too short to not eat whoopie pies!

Marissa has come up with all sorts of creative combinations beyond the classic chocolate/vanilla, such as red velvet and mint, chocolate and peanut butter and vanilla and raspberry, just to name a few!  Lucky for your guests and you, she works with couples on whoopie pie favors.  Delish!

Delicious, Delightful DIY Smore Kits – Seriously, Need I Say More?

This is one of those amazingly versatile ideas that will make recipients happy as a Holiday gift, a wedding favor, a welcome bag addition, and even a “just because” gift.  You just use clear acetate boxes for each of the ingredients; then, tie the whole things together with baker’s twine.  While I would love to take credit for this idea, I found it on Twig & Thistle, yet another fabulous Seattle-based DIY inspiration blog (I swear there is some sort of creativity supplement in the water there.).
