Watermelon Favors

I had a favor table set up in the dining room next to the gift table and cake/deserts.

I used baby food jars that I had been collecting.  I spray painted the lids pink and used a glue dot to put on a punched ant.

I used my cricut to cut out a scalloped circle and a slotted circle and attached with black ribbon.  I hand wrote "Thanks a Melon" on each one because I wanted a more personal touch.  I filled each jar with jelly bellies in pinks, greens and a few black for seeds.

The display was SUPER cheap.  I went to the post office and acted like I was going to be sending packages of various sizes picked up several free flat rate shipping boxes.  I wrapped them in a dollar store roll of pink wrapping paper.  I spiced them up with ribbon and some cricut cut outs.

I also set out wallet sized pictures for family to pick up and take on the way out!  They appreciated that.

I was really pleased with the how the favors turned out.  I loved the display, I loved how inexpensive it all was and all the guests loved them too!

Tomorrow's post will be my FAVORITE!  I was sooo happy with how the cake table and desert table turned out.

Check out these posts if you missed any from this week.
