Bridal Shower Favors

Hi All! Sorry for the few and far between posts.
I've been so incredibly busy lately because my BFF is getting married in a few months. I am the MOH and sole creative consultant! *chuckle* She's pretty crafty too so we are doing a LOT of things ourselves:)
I threw her a shower yesterday and these were the favors I made for the guests.

A handful of Juicy Pear Jelly Beans, wrapped in two layers of coffee filters, gathered with ribbon and twine and topped off with a sweet tag!


I made 20 of these little packets and hung them on metal trees on the tables.They have the added benefit of looking like flowers from the top...see?

They were a huge hit!

BUT, that's not all.
I knew some folks wouldn't want sugar so I also made these...


I purchased seed paper in the shape of hearts and put them into glassine envelopes and added another sweet tag! So, if a shower attendee didn't want the handful of jelly beans, they took this awesome plant-able paper favor instead. You just place the heart seed paper on the soil and add water. Beautiful wildflowers will grow!


And isn't it CRAZY that this month's Denami Blog Hop theme is Fancy Favors??
Talk about serendipity!


If you are following along the hop you came from Pattie's Blog, right? She's AMAZING that lady!

The pear treat using coffee filters is AWESOME!! Green is one of my favorite colors....and wouldn't you know, pear is one of my favorite jelly bean flavors too! LOL!! Also a great idea to provide a "non-candy" treat...love the idea of using seed paper to create treats and what a perfect sentiment for the occasion.
