Favors

Too girly?

I never knew there was a favor board....so I'll post this here too.

Ok, so I'm going to "make" some in expensive favors, or at least sort of create my own with some materials.

I was originally going to get little candy jars, and fill with jelly beans or M&Ms. These: http://www.nicepricefavors.com/p-6701ST.htm

While I was browsing the jars, I found these: http://www.nicepricefavors.com/p-8348.htm

(Sorry, idk how to link). So I thought I'd buy those, and they come with the box and ribbon...then I;d get some nice paper and print up an easy sugar cookie recipe on them. On the BACK of the recipe card, I'd write the guest's name and what table they'll be at, so it'll be both my place card and favor in one!

Well I emailed it to FI to show him...and he doesn't think they're manly enough, but has no suggestions on what else to do.

I thought these were so cute b/c they're hearts, and we're in love obviously, and because we (especially me) like to bake! And the love recipe would be cute, and I'd make them really cute...so now I'm bummed.

Thoughts?

    I think you should go with the edible favors.  People will like them more.

    The cookie cutters would be nice as a favor for a shower -- but I agree with your FI and navybaby.

    A cookie or something edible would be better as a wedding favor.

    Edible is always the way to go.  That way they eat it instead of throwing it away.

    stick with the jars...maybe get some personalized m&ms or something.  people are more likely to enjoy something they can enjoy without having to work for it.
