What I’m Loving Wednesday: In a Jar Favors

Looking back at my wedding, as perfect as it was, there are a few things I wish I did differently. I wish, for one, we hired a videographer. I wish I knew that the bridesmaids didn’t have to match. I wish I re-applied my make-up towards the end of the night. I really wish I had carved out more time to really personalize the details. Like, I don’t know, spent a few extra hours baking little pies into jars with heart-shaped crusts on top?


They wouldn’t have matched my theme, at all, but aren’t they cute? I’ve noticed a lot of brides making “in a jar” favors for their guests and I’m completely smitten with the idea. Not only are they cute and delicious, but they are quite cheap to assemble. The most expensive part would be finding all of those mini jars, which I”m pretty sure you can find at any home goods shop anyway!





Although pies are the most popular jar treats, I’ve also found brides putting cheesecakes, cookies, brownies, cakes and home-made fudge & chocolate sauce into jars. I’d love to be a guest at one of those weddings! Talk about perfect late night snack food!

A perfect, budget friendly way to really leave your stamp on your wedding. Plus, your guests will be happy because they are left with a tasty treat!

I’m already doing homemade vanilla extract for favors, but I thought the pies in a jar would be perfect for rehearsal dinner dessert or maybe for the bridal shower! They’re so adorable!! and they seem pretty super easy!!! Thanks for posting!!
