1. Like peppermints? Like sugar cookies? You’ll LOVE these!
Peppermint cookies are adorable, especially when you use clear cellophane bags to wrap them like individual candies. Just cut off the ends of the bags and tie each end with satin ribbon. Ann’s will be adding additional ribbon colors soon. Check out The Picky Apple for an excellent recipe and display.
2. The Ornament Creation Station
Set up a table at your wedding reception with clear, fillable Christmas ornaments. Clear ornaments are often glass, so if you plan on children participating you may want to search for plastic ornaments. Set up bowls of decorations for filling the ornaments. Decorations might include: glitter (with funnels), fake snow, snowflake confetti, iridescent shredded paper, ribbon, beads, colored sand, etc.
3. Cookies and milk seem to do the trick (minus the milk, maybe).
Or you can easily paint votives in holiday colors with glass paint from your local hobby store. Bold stripes of red and green will look beautiful, especially when lit with White Votive Candles.
5. Bring the charm of silver bells into your wedding!
Incorporate Silver or Gold Bell Place Card Holders into your decoration. Create small signs that say “Joy,” “Peace,” “Love,” and any other holiday words you find meaningful, to place in the holders and set them at each reception table. BONUS: guests get to ring the bell when they want to see you kiss!
6. Oh, favor tree! Oh, favor tree!
Place favor trees adorned with Christmas ornaments throughout your reception and encourage guests to take an ornament with them as they leave.
7. Send guests into the winter night with a little warmth!
Fill cellophane bags with a candle, personalized matches and some sparkling tinsel for them to enjoy later. Top the bags with favor cards printed with, “Thank you for joining us on this special day. Your love and support is truly heartwarming.”
8. What’s a winter wedding without a little glamour?
9. What a beauty!
Christmas ornaments are naturally a beautiful choice for winter wedding favors, but topping them off with Snowflake Favor Tags makes them absolutely perfect.
10. Clearly a great choice!
Fill Clear Favor Boxes with peppermint candy for a fun and festive treat. Try stacking them into a 3-Dimensional tree near the reception entrance. Place a scrap booked sign next to the tree that says “It was sweet of you to join us. Let us thank you with a treat that’s just as sweet as you.”
Other great favor box fillers include gumdrops for fabulous color or peanut brittle for a traditional Christmas treat. Top them off with Clear Thank You Favor Tags!
