Fun Seattle Wedding Favor Ideas?
- jerseytomato Jun 30, 2011 10:09 AM
Hello Seattle Chowhounds-
I am writing for some help with brainstorming Seattle foods that would be fun wedding favors. I'm having my wedding in Philly (where I'm from), but being that my fiance and I have been living in Seattle for the past 2 years, it would be fun to include something special from Seattle in the celebration. Thoughts I have include Chukar Cherries (they do cute favor boxes) and/or Theo chocolate bars. I'm also toying with the idea of making mini favor baskets and buying some foods in bulk (including Fran's salted caramels, which I love but as a wedding favor carry a price tag that's too high for me). Total I'm looking to spend <$10pp.
Any other suggestions or ideas are appreciated!
I'd definitely do something with Theo chocolate. The chocolate/love love/marriage link in good, and they are definitely a delicious and very local product. Both their bars and their individual chocolates are worth a look. Their hot chocolate is pretty fine, too.
I think Theo's is a great idea. I love the idea of mini baskets with salted caramels, but frankly, you probably don't need an extra wedding related chore, especially one that most people are going to forget about 2 seconds after they eat it.
I was thinking Almond Roca, too. Another local classic are Aplet's and Coplet's, but people seem to love 'em or hate 'em.
Since Seattle is such a coffee town, what about a small package of Starbuck's beans to go with some local candy?
Mama Lil's Peppers, Boat Street pickles, and Tom Douglas's Rub with Love products are some items that are less well known outside the area (plenty of Starbucks in Philly). I am a fan of Theo's though - and it would be easy to sleeve a chocolate bar or two with a personalized message.
