Fun Favors!!

When clients ask me what type of favors I recommend for their wedding or event, I always recommend something consumable.  Guests tend to enjoy something they can eat – whether it’s a sweet or a savory item.  The method of presentation can vary depending on the particulars of the event.

Many times, we have placed small boxes of candy at each place setting so guests see them as soon as they take their seat.

Other times, we would display the items for guests to pick-up as they depart the celebration.

One fun way to incorporate the favors into the event is to have a late-night snack offered or displayed after the dancing and merriment has ensued.

We offer a Candy Buffet service that can be personalized for the event whether by selecting a certain color(s) of candy or a special theme (Old Time Candy, Couples Favorites, etc.).  We usually provide a type of cellophane bag – clear or in the events colors – so that guests can make their own goody bag.

For a truly Southern wedding, particularly in the Atlanta area, clients love to have items brought in from The Varsity.  Whether it’s their famous fried pies or their hot dogs – guests always go wild for these treats. Or what about Krispy Kreme Doughnuts?  These go so fast you would think the “Hot Now” sign was lit above them.

Who doesn’t love COOKIES?  One of my all-time favorite favors idea was my clients Family Favorite’s Cookies.  Several family members were known for a specific type of delicious cookie that they regularly made, so the bride asked them too make their specialty and then we placed them with labels indicating the type of the cookie and the person who made it.

Maybe you don’t want to have friends or relatives make their specialty cookies, but you still want to have a cookie display, a great option is to order some delicious cookies and even brownies from The Christie Cookie Co.  They offer a variety of flavors of some of the most delicious cookies I’ve ever tasted.  You can even utilize their products for Guest Welcome bags because you can order their products in a range of  sizes in perfect tins that you can personalize with your wedding logo.

Since it’s summer, what could be more refreshing than a gourmet Popsicle? King of Pops provides an on-site cart with a variety of flavors. They are always a huge hit. Another hot weather treat is the Dreamy Gelato cart. Guests had a delicious time selecting their flavors and toppings.

A couple of other fun options that have been well received by guests are a popcorn buffet and a gourmet cotton candy station.  These unexpected treats will please guests, young and old, and will have your guests remembering your event with sweet visions.

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:45 am by JBEvents

It means the world to me when my clients rave about my services, as my goal is to always exceed their expectations. However, it is also a huge compliment when vendors are impressed by how we plan and produce an event. Angie Webb, of Suburbanite Photography posted a blog of a recent wedding we worked on together and mentioned her pleasure of working with us (and the feeling was mutual). Take a look and see some of the beautiful images from the wedding: http://www.suburbanitephotography.com/felipe-rachel-are-married-georgian-terrace-wedding-photographer/

Piedmont Park Wedding for Lauren & Dillon

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:32 am by JBEvents


This sweet couple wanted a “Montana” outdoors feel for their wedding because they use to live there and that’s where their love story began.  

With the venue selected, the Piedmont Room at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park, the next step was to begin creating the vision.  I turned to my preferred event designer, JWilbur of EventScapes Atlanta to begin the design concept.  Since the ceremony would be taking place indoors, the idea was to bring the outdoors in.  A focal point for the ceremony was a gorgeous arbor which was flanked by two birch branch walls.  It was stunning.

In honor and memory of the bride’s mother, a wooden sign with the phrase “If Heaven weren’t so far away, we know your would be here today” was placed near the ceremony area.

Amati Chamber Ensemble provided the music for the ceremony.  This group of musicians are top-notch and always provide exceptional performance.

Capturing images of the day and providing the images in this post was 3 Rivers Photography.

The couple opted to have cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake.  As a cake topper, they had two wooden bears custom made which were again a nod to their time in Montana.

The guests were treated to a very energetic party with Yacht Rock Schooner band entertaining them.  The dance floor was filled all night.

A special treat of Krispy Kreme doughnuts were provided as guests departed the celebration which were a huge hit.

The couple departed to their waiting limo from Atlantic Limo, amidst colorful confetti as the evening came to a close.

We wish a lifetime of happiness to Lauren and Dillon!

Enjoy these images of their beautiful wedding.
