I am loving all of the great DIY favor projects being featured on Style Me Pretty today. Making your own favors can be cheaper (if done right), more meaningful (who doesn't love something handmade with lots of love?) and can fit in with your theme better than store bought favors. Here's two of my favorites - the tea tin favors and the chocolate covered pretzels!
I really love the tea tin favor. I am a big tea lover (have been since 5th grade!), so I had really wanted to do something like this using Harney & Sons' Wedding Tea - a delicious white tea with hints of lemon and vanilla and with little pink rosebuds in it. But, alas, we had several non-tea or caffeine drinkers at our wedding, and it would have been odd to do another set of favors for the non-tea drinkers. Harney & Sons has their tea come in lovely vintage silver tins of 20 silk tea sachets, but also have "tagalong" tins with 6 sachets that can be personalized with your names and wedding date. So perfect!
