Nutcracker Place Card Holders + Favors

Emma here and if you follow our Twitter, you know it’s been taking every fiber of my being to NOT start playing Christmas music yet. This year is Baby Andrew’s first Christmas and I just can’t wait to fill the house with the smell of sugar cookies, play this album on constant repeat, and string lights on the tree to show him the magical holiday. It’s only the first week of November and we’re already seeing Christmas trimmings at nearly every store, so I guess it’s never too early to prepare. Right? ;) When I spotted these mini nutcracker place card holders (which can multi-task as favors, too) I could not wait to share them with you.

Nutcracker Place Card Holders

They’re perfect for Christmas themed weddings, Holiday parties, or for your own stash of holiday decor.

These nutcrackers are so stinking cute.

Are They Just Like the Real Thing?

They sure are! They even have moveable parts, according to the item description.

The Details

These hand-painted wood figures feature faux fur trim and stand at attention at each guests’ place setting. Comes in the assorted colors, as shown. Colors can not be separated. Each nutcracker includes glue dot to affix the white, blank place card to nutcracker head; as there is not a slit for place card.

Halloween Cake in a Jar

This cake is made with moist chocolate cake and pumpkin cake layered with orange buttercream frosting. YUM! A cake in a jar will stay fresh for up to 7 days and can be frozen for up to a month; I know, right? Storing this is a breeze.

Get the cake recipe at HGTV. Enjoy!

And, now that we’ve discussed these yummy, fall-inspired treats, I’m off to find myself a pumpkin spice latte. ;)

Happy Planning!

Personalized Candy Wrappers for Wedding Favors

Giveaway inside!

Hi, loves! Happy Monday! We’re kicking off this beautiful first week of fall in the sweetest fashion: with a wedding giveaway! But first… are you looking for a wedding favor your guests will actually love? Make it easy on yourself and go with candy: a) it’s edible, b) it’s affordable, and c) it’s candy, which everyone loves! Win, win. Win. When you add personalized candy wrappers to the mix, your favors will tie in beautifully with your themed wedding. To inspire you (and help you keep a little change in your pocket), we’ve teamed up with Sweet Paper Shop to give away personalized candy wrappers for wedding favors. These candy wrappers will cover a standard Hershey’s 1.55oz milk chocolate bar. You get to pick your favorite pattern and your candy wrappers will be personalized just for you. The hardest part of making your favors will be deciding which pattern to pick and trying not to sneak a few chocolate bars before the big day… Believe me, Andrew & I gave Hershey’s candy bar favors at our wedding and, let’s just say we ordered a little extra, you know, for taste-testing purposes. (Someone’s gotta make sure they taste good… am I right?) Enjoy!

Photo of the Day » Candy Mason Jar Favors

One of the easiest projects to DIY? Candy mason jar favors! Fill a half-pint mason jar (or, I think these are pretty neat, too) with your favorite candy and add a simple ‘thank you’ tag. This couple apparently has good taste, too: they chose full-size Reese’s (my fave) and Kit-Kat bars, among other delectable treats. YUM. Talk about a favor that won’t be left on tables afterward.
