Mason jars are perfect for western decorations and can be filled with many gift-giving options for wedding favors. Some ideas include:
- Vase: Fill a Mason jar with water and add some flowers that say 'old west'. Wildflowers, sunflowers, or daisies will all be perfect for this genre and they are both hardy and easy to obtain. Tie a plaid ribbon around the rim of the jar and you have a lovely, colorful and aromatic favor.
- Candy jar: with the addition of colorful candy such as jelly beans, M&M?s or gum drops the mason jar will be transformed into a delightful candy jar. You can write a personal message right on the jar or simply package it in tulle tied with ribbon.
- Candleholder: Add a colorful candle to your mason jar and it becomes a lantern. Craft stores are filled with decorative additions such as glass beads for a base or small candleholders that can be inserted right into the jars.
- Bandana Container: Fill each Mason jar with a colorful bandana. Guests will enjoy receiving this novel gift and you can include personal thank-you messages either inside or painted directly on the jars.
Consider a table centerpiece made up of small cactus plants. This will be a dramatic display that enriches the western day. At the end of the wedding, guests at each table can choose the cactus plant that they want to bring home. With the availability of intensely colored flowering cactus plants, your guests will be thrilled to go home with a little piece of the wedding.
Wedding CDs are versatile and trendy favors. You can provide guests with musical medleys and even incorporate photographs in a slideshow. With a collection of square dancing, two stepping, and line dancing music, you will have a CD filled with celebratory, foot-stomping memories. CD labels and jewel boxes can also be westernized and personalized with patterns, symbols, names and dates.
Western dinner bells would be a novel approach to thanking your guests. Whether they are professionally inscribed or simply given without inscription, they are nostalgic and fun. Place a bell at the front of each place setting to let your guests know that dinner is served. These bells will no doubt be enjoyed as conversation pieces or as actual dinner bells for years to come.
Western wedding favors will help you share a bit of magic with your guests. They will be sure to carry that foot stomping, jovial mood of everlasting love and heroes far into their futures.
