I’m part of a monthly ladies’ supper club. Surprised? I thought not. Each woman brings something they have never made before and to begin our meal, we each talk about the item we’ve contributed. Not only is it hard to figure out what new item to make, we also cater to several food intolerances. At first, this was hard. Gluten-free, dairy-free, andddd a brand new recipe? But, it turns out that it’s worth the struggle because we always end up with a beautiful array of fresh, seasonal dishes that are deliciously healthy.
First up: wedding favors!
Wedding favors are a tricky thing. Usually they are at the bottom of the wedding to-do list, which also means the end of the budget. You want something that your guests will actually take with them, because what’s the point of giving it if you have 100 leftovers? You also need something budget friendly, and something to reflect the two of you as a couple. I found that my favorite favors to receive are edible or useful as well as easy to travel with. Which is where I got the criteria when making my own wedding favors last year.
