A foodie wedding isn’t successful unless there are yummy favors. You can select a favor that is seasonal, different or clever just as long as it tastes good…oh so good. The great thing about foodie favors is that simple wrapping is better because you are showcasing the food, not how extra cute your box is. So a busy-free tag, kraft paper, glassine bag and maybe ribbon is practically all you need. Plus, foodie favors cater to men, women and children – bonus! Here are some yummy and different foodie favor ideas for guests to go home with.
Skillet Bacon Spread
This is not your typical jam obviously since bacon is right in the title. I think this is even better than jam favors that are so overdone. This one says enjoy me on a cracker, bread or burger. With so many options, your guests will thank you for sending them home with this yummy jar of goodness.
Is there a fruit in season that is absolutely yummy? If so, place those treats in a paper bag (I like the ones with the handles) and have them available for guests to enjoy after your event. I recommend cherries, apricots, Meyer lemons or dates.
Cheese and Crackers
You can dress up a simple package of crackers with a small sampling of gourmet cheese. No need to have all the cheeses be the same, let your guests choose from a delish selection of your favorite cheeses and crackers.
If you are lucky like me, you have an awesome bread baker in your town. Take advantage and share your love of super good bread with your guests. The best part is you’ll be helping a local bakery and you can add a clever message on the tag that says, “Thanks for celebrating with us. Let’s break bread together soon.” I know – such a great idea for simple bread!
