Lets talk wedding favors.
After searching around on the bakerella website, I came across a GREAT choice for our wedding favors.. COOKIES IN A JAR!
We're going to make them exactly like what is shown in the pictures, except imagine it with light blue instead of pink! We're going to get blue M&M's and blue and brown fabric (if I can find some that is similar to what it is in the pictures) It'll go great with our wedding colors since it'll be white, blue and brown when it's all finished. We're just going to put a sticker on it that says "Thank You Cookies" and stick another sticker on the back of it or on the lid with instructions.
We're going to start making them in July or August (3 - 4 months before the wedding) because everywhere I read said that they have a 6 months shelf life without the pecans and a 3 month shelf life with the pecans (we're not adding in the pecans.)
It should be a relatively cheap project and I'll definitely post the result of how mine turn out!
We actually went out last night to Hobby Lobby to price the jars and to our surprise they were actually 50% off. So, we bought what they had there (which was 14 of them) and I texted my friend who lives almost 4 hours away and she ran to Hobby Lobby there and got some more for me (about 15). So, I'll just have to keep my eyes out for more when they are on sale again!
