Fall Themed Wedding Favors

Fall themed wedding favors are rustic inspired gifts - like everything warm and wonderful this time of year - remind us to be grateful for those we cherish. No plastic packaging, no flip flop theme. No coasters or lollipops or key chains with our smiling faces on them. Something as simple as these charming pillow boxes with America's favorite chocolates (in beautiful fall colors) tucked inside. Colorful yarn or baker's twine looks lovely with a hand stamped tag.

You don't need to buy the bees, hive and harvest
to assemble the lovely nectar of honey favors like these. 
 A fabulous fall favor idea -  love magnets, made from small wooden hearts
and inscribed with oil based paint markers.

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

Margaritas - a frozen feast for the eyes, and a little bit good for you too. Especially if you choose fresh antioxidant friendly fruits like strawberries, peaches, cranberries and pomegranates - or pomegranate juice. Before your favorite party 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. Garnish your margaritas 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.  It's as simple as that!
Don't Miss!
