“popping the question” popcorn

A fun and whimsical favor that guests can grab as dessert or munch on the way home from your awesome party. We’ve also seen popcorn bars at engagement parties featuring a variety of types of popcorn so guests can pick and choose their sweet or savory treat-to-go.

mini champagne bottles

Let’s be honest-anyone who has ever been in a wedding knows that the event usually means a whirlwind of excitement mixed with more than a dash of stress and the potential to turn even our most beloved besties into bridezillas. These mini champagne bottles (which can be dressed up with a festive straw or label) show your guests that you’re in the celebratory spirit…and that you recognize the importance of unwinding.

custom coffee blends

Everyone could use a little extra coffee around the house, and your guests will think of you every time they brew a batch of your “perfect blend”. If you are tea drinkers, choose a loose leaf tea blend. We love the idea of using a floral variety that incorporates dried roses or violets.

“spread the love” jam

Jam is a universally beloved present or favor for any and every occasion. Tasty and always useful, it’s a sweet way also to incorporate personal details such as using berries from the season in which you got engaged or making a jam that recalls the apple picking trips that have become your yearly tradition.

“meant to bee” honey

Pun intended, yet again! This sweet favor is always a favorite. For an extra touch, attach a wooden honey dipper along the side with some twine or ribbon. Choosing local honey is a great way to give your affair a homegrown feel and to support your community of beekeepers.

personalized cookies

Personalized cookies are a popular, yet traditional party favor for the simple reason that they can reflect myriad styles, from cutesy to classic to funky. Whether you choose an elaborately decorated and iced version or make your own and stamp them with your initials, cookies are an irresistible treat that are almost too precious to eat.

Simply print out or make and decorate the toppers in advance and then grab dozens of powdered donuts just before your party. Putting them together will be a snap. Seriously, who could resist grabbing one (or three) of these on their way out from your party?
