I’m a big sweet tooth and candy apple treats are my weakness. I love any type of fruits to begin with but mixing apples with caramel, chocolate or glaze cinnamon? It’s the right kind of mixture of healthy and indulging at the same time. Talk about deliciousness!

These are quintessential for any fall-themed wedding favors, especially if the candle wax is caramel or mocha scented. It will be like waking up in a coffee shop. I’m ready for my daily scent of cup-of-joe, please!

This is a thoughtful way to say thank you to everyone. The best part? You can definitely do-it-yourself. Just grab some marshmallows, Hershey’s chocolate, and graham crackers and put them all in a clear plastic bag. Have a custom tag “S’more love” or whatever your hear desires and put it around a raffia or baker’s twine. Simple, thoughtful and a sweet treat!

When the weather starts to feel cooler and you need a little something warm, a tea will do. These are perfect to give to your guest because it will keep them extra cozy during the fall season. Plus, it is coming from you so it’s a sweet idea! It’s super easy to make it too. Interested in using this as your wedding favor? Here is a step-by-step DIY. Voila!
The basic materials you’ll be needing are:
- Muslin fabric–always look for natural & unbleached or pastel colors
- Baker’s twine
- Loose leaf tea (Lupicia Tea Shoppe in LA is my favorite!)
- Hole punch
- Little brown bag
- Cut the muslin into squares
- Fill the middle of the square with 1-2 tablespoons of loose leaf
- Fold one side of the fabric over the loose leaf tea.
- Fold the other side of the fabric over (like a taco!)
- Bring the two ends up together, and tap or move the tea around with your fingers so it’s at the bottom of your tea bag.
- Cut the baker’s twine to any desired length, and proceed to tie a knot around your pouch down toward the loose leaf tea.
- Finish by adding the tag around the end of the twine.
Voilà! Simple and inexpensive wedding favor ideas that everyone will love. They are all such sweet treats and no guest at your wedding will leave without sharing a smile.
