DIY Favor Baskets

Favors for your guests are always extra special when they are handmade {by you of course!} with love! My cousin and his wife had a beautiful family-style Fall wedding in 2009. Each wood basket was customized to a family or single person and included fall themed items like yummy carmel apples and candies, and homeade banana bread and apple butter.

Our families were so excited to grab the baskets and peek inside at all their goodies to eat in their hotel rooms that night and over the weekend.

Summer is here and great ideas to add to welcome and favor baskets are bottles of water with a customized label and personalized fans. Include your names and wedding date or a summery design with rubber stamp sets or add a sweet or funny picture of you and the groom on the water bottles.
