February is here, and you know what that means- time for chocolate! Oh, right, and love. Valentines-themed weddings abound this month, and with it comes plenty of fun and whimsical décor and food ideas.
For a Valentine’s Day wedding, sending your guests home with something sweet is especially appropriate, and something they’ll actually anticipate taking with them. Doing them yourself will make them even more special. Here are a few ideas worth busting out your crafting hats for to give your guests wedding favors that they’ll truly enjoy.
Is there anything you can’t do with a mason jar? They’re the perfect vessel to fill with all kinds of goodies. You can include you and your beloved’s favorite candy or chocolate treats (many of which you can personalize with initials and such), or layer in dry ingredients for a sweet recipe that everyone can enjoy, such as brownies or cupcakes.
Finish off with cute printed tags that include phrases like ‘Made with Love’ along with your wedding details.
Who doesn’t like a good, gooey ‘smore? It’s still rather chilly outside, so sending your guests home with a care package that includes everything they need to make this cold weather favorite is perfect. Simply stack chocolate squares over graham crackers and top off with some marshmallows.
How many times have you wandered by a dessert table at a wedding and just wished you could take some of it home with you? Take-out containers are fairly easy to find at most craft stores, and can be decorated in any number of ways, from glitter to markers to paint. Place one for each person at the table so they can all load up on their favorite treats before heading home. It will also guarantee that all of the food you paid for gets eaten!
Custom candy bars are a fun addition to any Valentine’s Day Wedding. There are quite a few free candy bar wrapper templates you can find online to download and customize as you wish.
DIY crafts for a wedding not only save you some money, but they’re great opportunities to do something fun with your loved ones. Enlist the help of your bridal party (that is what they’re there for!), and family members so you can get all the favors done faster and have a great time doing it.
