Hi, we're Modern Vintage. We love weddings, we love love & we love to sing while we set up. Our favorite part of the day is watching you, as a new couple, walk back down the aisle after the ceremony. That feeling of elation & pure joy is why we do what we do.


DIYF: Favors

Apr 20

It’s Friday night and the mood is right…It’s time again for another DIYF. This week, I have been seeing cool ideas for DIY favors all over the place. If you are going to do favors for your event, making them yourself can be a good way to cut down on the coast. Although fair warning, that is not always the case – make sure you price out premades as well! But – homemade favors can bring a nice personal touch and if your guests are anything like me, they will really value something that you made for them by hand.

I would love to try these little tea soaps featured on Cucumbersome. Aren’t they adorable? I am a huge tea drinker (hot not cold) and I just think these would be the sweetest little favors.

Succulents are growing more popular (yes, literally growing) in wedding decor and I love the way they look. For an event using succulents in centerpieces or other decor, wouldn’t a favor like these little mini terrariums be cool? Ruffled blog has the full tutorial here.

Favors like these DIY coasters on Setting for Four are gifts that your guests can use again and again after your event. And when you see them adorning the coffee tables of your friends and families even years after your wedding, it’s such a sweet reminder of that special day.  I may or may not know from personal experience 😉

Food is a longstanding favorite when it comes to favors. Many people do candy, cookies and all kinds of other edible treats. But these DIY Pie in a Jar favors caught my eye the other day on Green Wedding Shoes and I just keep going back to them. I think I might just make them next time I have people over to my house – they’re so dang cute.

Now, go have fun, get creative and have a great DIY weekend!
