Fall Themed Wedding Favors

Fall themed wedding favors - especially assembled by hand - feel like small gifts that have been carefully and lovingly made. No plastic packaging, no flip flop theme. No more coasters or lollipops or key chains or coffee mugs. Something as simple as these charming pillow boxes with America's favorite chocolates (in beautiful fall colors) tucked inside. Colorful orange yarn or baker's twine looks inviting with a matching hand stamped tag. Here are some of my favorite DIY fall wedding favor ideas.

Red and White Wedding Cupcakes

You need a moist and delicious dessert for your red and white themed wedding, bridal shower or afternoon tea.

What sounds easy and elegant, something you can prepare in 15 minutes or less?

Red Velvet Cupcakes with mini white chocolate chips and sweet cream cheese centers.

The beauty of these colorful red cupcakes is that they are basically made from a store bought mix. Make as directed but substitute milk for the water. One tablespoon of cream cheese filling (whipped with 1/2 cup sugar, one egg, salt and one cup of mini white chocolate chips) added to the top of each cupcake with sink down into the batter to make a delicious creamy surprise.

So rich, so remarkable....leave the frosting for less decadent desserts.

Bachelorette Party Margaritas

A bachelorette party without frozen margaritas - is like a day at the beach without sunshine. These magnificent fruit margaritas will be well-loved, especially on a hot summer day. If you choose antioxidant rich fruits such as strawberries, blackberries, cranberries, peaches and pomegranates (which may be helpful in preventing breast cancer), you can tell everyone their good health and happiness is your main priority! Before your girls get in the door, you need to prepare your glasses like a pro. First, sprinkle a few tablespoons of coarse salt on a small serving plate. Wet the rims of the glasses with a wedge of lemon, lime or orange (my favorite). Turn the glass upside down and swirl it around on the bed of coarse salt. Make your fruit margaritas even more unforgettable garnished with thin, freshly sliced lemons or limes.


Pomegranate Margaritas
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 cups ice
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
Pour the tequila and triple sec into a pitcher. Sprinkle in the confectioners' sugar, and stir to dissolve. Add the ice, and pour in the pomegranate juice and lime juice. Stir to mix, sit back and enjoy!
