My idea for favors: the ultimate treat, cookies and cocoa.  I have already bought little plastic treat bags for the cookies and have two huge boxes of Swiss Miss packets... how do I wrap them together? I'm having a fall/nature themed wedding, so I'd like to do something that would be appropriate... any ideas would be appreciated! thank you!

I am using chinese take out food containters for my favors. They are a blank slate and can be decorated so many ways. I am using the 1/2 pint small ones, but you can get them bigger and put your cookies and cocoa in them and then "theme them up" any way you want to.

I've seen people on Ebay selling pre-packaged wedding favors of teabags with a wrapper printed with your names and date-- I don't see why it would be that hard to print your own, stick the hot chocolate pack in there, and hole punch the bottom and put a ribbon to tie it??

This is what I came up with: Tags created in Word, printed on white cardstock and glued to red cardstock for color.  I didn't end up going with the cookies, as they would have to be done the week of the wedding and I didn't need anything else to do! I did find 'hot chocolate pops' on Oriental Trading and using them to mix cocoa -- heavenly.  Then i just popped them all into my cheap little favor bags, tied with ribbons with hot-glued silk leaves.  Word to the wise: Take a year to plan your wedding so you can stock up on seasonal clearance the year before!
