Happy Friday! We’re kicking off the morning with a little (okay, a lot of) sugar jam-packed into these divine DIY rose cupcakes. These cupcakes are made with honest-to-goodness ingredients like buttercream vanilla frosting and chocolate cake, always a crowd-pleaser. We spotted these delicious cupcakes via Pinterest with the original photos and full how-to-bake-’em scoop from Baker’s Royale. Just one look and you’ll be hooked! Take a peek…

Good Morning! We’re kicking off the AM with this sweet little idea: re-usable clay favor tags! These tags are handmade by Marley and Lockyer and are creating quite a stir on Pinterest. These were originally tagged as “salt dough” but we have since found out (from the artisan’s blog post) that it is, in fact, earthenware clay. These beautiful clay tags – the original clay tag – can be purchased for use on your wedding favors or holiday gifts for friends. Unlike other favor tags that get tossed, these tags can be re-used after the wedding by guests to pass on the handmade love.

I think all guests would agree (especially Bill Cosby himself) that pudding in a jar is a grand-slam favor idea. Who doesn’t love chocolate pudding – particularly Midnight Black Chocolate Pudding – as shown below? I will never tire of treats packaged in mason jars, let alone ones that look as scrumptious as these. Spotted via Pinterest from Joy The Baker.

So, you’re in love with the idea of homemade pie at your wedding but you still want to have your cake (and eat it, too). Not a problem! Instead of ditching the tiers all together, why not serve up wedding pies to go? Wedding pie favors are a great way to mix in the homespun goodness of freshly baked mini apple and cherry pies (or any flavor you crave) as well as add to that fall-themed decor you’ve been dreaming about. Take a cue from some of these images below to whip up a little inspiration:

Happy Saturday! I can always tell it’s the weekend when I leap out of bed eager to get crafting. (Is it because I’m an active member of Create Every Day? Must be.) Today I am planning to make a burlap table runner for my bistro table on the front porch. There’s a neighbor down the street who sets up an entire vignette, so to speak, on her front porch. It always looks so warm and inviting. Of course, I can’t curl up on her Adirondack chair and curl up with a good book – that would be weird. So, I’m making my own. ;) I’m starting with a table runner, adding a vase full of flowers, a lantern, some comfy chairs, and throw pillows. I want to make it a nice little reading nook to sit and drink coffee in the morning. I very much enjoy sitting on my porch when it rains, too – it’s one of those little pleasures in life. But, there’s no rain today – there’s a big blue sky full of sunshine which is fantastic because my cousin is getting married today! Happy wedding day to Erin + John and to all of the brides and grooms tying the knot today! Enough about me and my ramblings, let’s get to the post, shall we? Today we’re featuring these adorable mason jar tags. These terrific little tags take my love (ok, obsession) for the thrifty jars to an entirely new level. Not only do I love them because they’re colorful and completely charming, but they’ll coordinate nicely should you use mason jar centerpieces throughout your event, too. Your initials are placed onto the front of the jar along with your wedding date for complete customization. The tags are handcrafted and stamped with a polka dot and brown theme, which works well in any season. I love the linen colored twine! Mason jar tag measures 1.75″ x 2.75″. Take a peek…

Good afternoon, lovelies! Are you having a fun Friday so far? We’re finishing up our posts for today with this beautiful wedding favor spotted at Katie’s Something Sweet. We love cameos AND we love cookies, so when we spotted these incredible cameo cookies we had to share them immediately. I’m not sure what I (Emma here!) love most about these cookies: the cameo, the pretty blue color, the ingredients (vanilla shortbread – YUM!), or that they are handmade lovingly with two hands and not a factory. This is the sweetest little gift for your guests and makes perfect wedding favors! Take a peek…

Just when you thought you had seen all of the possible desserts-in-a-jar combinations, a fun idea comes along to make you smile. These incredible smores in a jar cakes will delight guests of all ages and they are easy-to-DIY (get the full how-to scoop here). I’m not sure if I love this because a) it is a genius idea, b) it is less messy to eat than a traditional smore, or c) last weekend I did tons of camping and bonfire-ing, consuming yummy s’mores along the way. OK, all of the above! This yummy cake in a jar will make a unique wedding favor your guests will always remember (+ immediately enjoy!).

I woke up this morning with a serious sweet tooth, likely the result of cupcakes enjoyed at a wedding last night. It was the most incredible cupcake tower with three different flavors – one strawberry, the second was caramel, and the third was chocolate mousse. YUM. You had to be quick on the draw – guests were going nuts over them (myself included). The top of the cupcake tower had a faux layer cake with peonies on top. It was quite lovely. Anyway, my sweet tooth has inspired me to post this DIY rose cookies tutorial which I may even try out tonight. It looks like a fun, easy-to-diy treat perfect for bridal showers and, of course, wedding receptions. You can use different food coloring to match your own decor… which I love.

Fun favor alert! Remember those candy necklaces you loved as a kid? Now you can give them out as candy necklace favors in a more grown-up approach. ;) These are a crowd-pleaser from ‘kids’ of all ages. Place the candy necklaces in a fancy jewelry box for perfect presentation. Can you image this as a candy-themed bridal shower favor?
