Edible Favors

Edible favors are all the rage right now. They are the one thing that, when given at a wedding as a favor, doesn't get left behind when guests leave. We had the lovely pleasure of attending a beautiful wedding in Pittsburgh this past weekend for Lauren and Matt. Not only did this wonderful couple have a box of chocolatey goodness at each table setting but they also had a cookie buffet!

I'm not sure if this is a new favor trend or not but this is the first time that I had seen it done. And let me tell you, if you want your guests to get up and mingle around, this buffet will do it. I have never seen so many adults migrate to one spot so quickly...well except for an open bar. :)

What a great way to show off your favorite family recipes. Not sure what to use, well here are a few of our favorites made by some sinfully sweet etsians.

Wow, those all look delicious!

Definitely a great idea for weddings. And, having an assortment is probably your best bet - that way you can keep everyone and their tastes happy.
