Cookie Wedding Favor Ideas

Dec 20, 2010

This past weekend, Team Little Things took a day to spend quality time together (off the clock) and get into the Christmas spirit. We all met at Erica’s house for her first annual Holiday Cookie Party! While listening to classic Christmas tunes and sipping on hot cocoa, we rolled, cut, baked and decorated away – for hours! Some of our delicious morsels included white chocolate covered mint chocolate cookies that were sprinkled with crushed candy cane, gingerbread men, iced sugar cookies, almond nut bars, and chocolate chip shortbread cookies that were supposed to be drizzled with chocolate…but we got lazy. Anyway, while playing Betty Crocker I was inspired for a blog idea: cookie wedding favors! Why not bake your own cookies for your guests to take home and enjoy? Especially if your wedding is around Christmas…after all, during the holiday season almost everyone is baking! But some of us may not be as domestic as others, so if you’re scared you’ll burn the house down, here are some other great ideas to stick with a cookie favor theme.

1. If you can’t bake your own cookies, why not urge your guests to instead?  Our Personalized Sugar Cookie Mixes are available in a classic wedding theme, winter and fall designs.  This adorable favor makes approximately 8 delicious sugar cookies. It’s also available with an optional heart handle mini whisk. So cute!

2. Cookie cutters have always been a popular and practical favor. Many couples want to give their guests something they know won’t go to waste, and a cookie cutter certainly won’t. Even though it may not be used every single day, it will come in handy when it’s time for baking. Our cookie cutters are availalbe in fun shapes such as the ever popular heart, the word “LOVE,” autumn leaves, fun beach themes, and butterflies too.

3. Not everyone has a sweet tooth, but you can stay in the baking theme with kitchen wedding favors. A measuring spoon favor, a whisk, or perhaps a kitchen timer are some of our most popular and useful kitchen favors.  Like cookie cutters, these favors are practical, but they can be used in a kitchen every day.

4. If you don’t have the skills or the time to bake cookies for your wedding, fear not – we offer cookie wedding favors to give to your guests. These yummy treats are baked and customized for each and every order, guaranteeing freshness from the moment they arrive. From chocolate dipped oreos and fortune cookies to personalized Biscotti and photo cookies, the limits are endless! Guests will be able to appreciate your good taste in design and flavor.

Happy baking, and enjoy your week! Just one week until Christmas…have you finished your shopping yet?

‘Tis the Season for a Winter Wedding!

Dec 8, 2010

‘Tis the season…for your winter or holiday wedding! Christmas is coming, and the girls here at Little Things can hardly keep patient! Ah, how I love the holidays: the Christmas shopping, the lights and decorations, all the yummy baking, and the cold weather (just kidding). Any how, now is the time we’re seeing last minute orders for some of our winter and holiday wedding favors. Whether it be for a wedding or holiday soiree, these seasonal favors are great for spreading Christmas spirit! Little Things Favors is the place to shop for all your winter wedding favors and holiday needs!

Are you eager to host a winter themed wedding? We’re here to help. Not only can you have your reception in the snow, but here are some other great ideas for a winter themed wedding:

1. A Winter Wonderland – Create a blizzard indoors! Not literally, of course. An all white color scheme may sound too ‘blah’ for you, but accent it with silvers and ice blues and voila–may all your winter dreams come true. Think snow! Snowflakes and glitter should NOT be avoided. Coordinate your favors to match! This ever popular Snowflake Bottle Stopper is packaged to match your snowy theme and is practical too!

2. A Very Merry Wedding – Do you love Christmas so much that you’re getting married right around the corner from it? Is your heart set on a Christmas themed wedding – complete with decorated trees and Santa Clause? A red and green color scheme is certainly the one to choose! These Metal Christmas Tree Bells will match perfectly, and are amodern twist on the traditional wedding bell. Perhaps you’d be interested in Christmas tree centerpieces adorned with red globe ornaments, lights and a star on top. The sky is the limit!

3. Cozy Cabin Wedding – Love the Christmas season and the way the snow looks when it first falls, but hate the cold weather? One of the reasons I love the colder weather and the holiday season is the fact that I can cozy up in front of a fire with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. If you love that too, why not have your wedding reflect that? You might want to consider a rustic, cabin-like venue and feature favors such as these Natural Vine Chairs, or Personalized Hot Cocoa in holiday designs.

4. Candy Cane Theme – Think red and white, of course! Fill up big, clear, cylinder vases with white and red Jordan Almonds, poured at an angle so you have a swirl of the two colors. Candy canes tied with personalized ribbon or mint tins will coordinate with your pepperminty theme.

Use your imagination! Like we did — this month’s display window is a trendy Christmas theme with a twist: we’ve gone hot pink and lime green! Our snowy window has a Christmas tree centerpiece decorated with pink and green ornaments with a hot pink star on top. We have tons of pink and green accessories and accents. And we have a huge, pink light-up lawn reindeer in our other window (a portion of the profit is donated to Breast Cancer!). Check out our winter wedding favors for other great holiday ideas, as well as our winter accessories and decorations! Personalized dance floor decals, unity candles, winter collections and silk snowflakes are just some of the great stuff we have in store to complete your holiday bash.

By the way, we have to congratulate Alecia on choosing her wedding date of May 6, 2012! I’m ECSTATIC! We also recently welcomed Kristi back into the office, as she was out sick for about a month. We’ve missed you!

We’re halfway to Friday! Hang in there! All my love <3 Kelsey
