The best wedding favors are almost always the edible ones. And they’re usually something your guests can eat right away, but who wants that when you’ve already been stuffed with an amazing dinner, wedding cake and fabulous dessert bar?! Enter mason jar cookie mixes! The Mason Jar Cookie Company http://masonjarcookiecompany.com/ makes these amazing mixes that are completely customizable that you can order in either 4, 8 or 26 oz jars. You start by choosing the base cookie type: traditional, chocolate, oatmeal or peanut butter; and then choose your add-in from over 30 options, from dark chocolate chips to jelly beans. M&M’s are a popular choice for an add-in as you can get them in your wedding colors to coordinate with your wedding. The Mason Jar Cookie Company also allows you to customize the mason jars by adding a custom jar lid label, custom theme the label and also add ribbon in your wedding colors. These lil’ cookie mix mason jars are just too cute!
Happy Friday everyone, it’s almost the weekend! Check out our latest blog post by our ellyB Wedding and Event Designer, Pia!
“This year so far has brought us many creative ideas for table settings. Vibrant color palettes mixed with simple styles add a touch of excitement to any table at an event. Feathers and crystal-like decorations are also hot right now. What is it that makes these designs worthwhile? It’s all about the details this year! Whether it’s a shade of pink, a tropical plate setting, or even just the way the napkins are displayed along with the menu cards; they all make a statement of your event style.
The tropical hues, flower selections, straw place setting, and the zebra print designed boxes in the photo below, bring a playful yet elegant feel to a spring or summer party. Flowers can be used in the place of a ribbon or bow along with bamboo sticks to add an eccentric touch.

The yellow, aqua, and white color scheme below is so beautiful! The napkin is neatly folded over with a yellow ribbon and flower to hold it in place. The aqua rock crystals over the napkin add that extra color to the set up. Frostedevents.com published an amazing set up! Thumbs up!
Leaves and simple branches make a great substitute for flowers. As long as the color scheme is intact, the styles can vary. Our next table setting shows gold and white metallics. The mini frosted wine glasses alone are a great addition to the table. The gold candle holders and vases add the last touch to the color scheme. Remember, not everything has to be the same color or material.
Whether you have bright colors or pastels, your details make a great addition to your table. It can be small vases with flowers, feathers with glitter, or plate settings in multiple colors, your table represents your style and what you are bringing to, well, the table” : )

How adorable are these bandsaids?
