The tradition of giving candy, chocolates or Jordan Almonds for wedding favors dates back for many generations. Symbolically, couples would give 5 Jordan Almonds to signify: health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity. Typically these Jordan almonds decorate each place setting as wedding favors, tucked into pretty boxes or tulle bags called bombonieres that are often personalized with the couple's names and wedding date.
Perhaps you still want to give candy DIY wedding favors to your guests, but you rather not give the same old favors as everyone else. Not to worry, there is a ton of DIY candy and edible options available to you and so many variations of packaging – that we guarantee no two weddings will be the same. Our Favor pails and mint tins are just a few ways that you can package your edible favor arrangements.
Mini favor pails are a great foundation for DIY wedding favors. There are just so many things you can fill these little bins with! Fill with chocolate “pebble” candy for a beach soiree, fill them with little plants for a garden party, make little “flower” bunches of lollipops, chalk or crayons for children. Stack them with cookies for dessert tables or make your own candles and use them as candle tins. If you line them with paper cupcake wraps inside, you can fill them with berries for a homemade rustic touch. As you can see, deciding on what to do with these versatile little pails is the biggest issue!
For smaller candies such as mini M&Ms, chicklet gum, mints, jelly beans or tic tacs, we suggest using one of our many mint tin containers.

Most are available to be personalized – but you can decorate them in any number of ways – ribbons, labels, crystals – will add your own personalized touch of flair to standard favors.
These little treasures are perfect to display at each place setting. Not only will they add a pop of color to your décor but they also will give your guests a treat they can snack on throughout the night. Alternatively, you could use these to display your seating assignments by tying a tag or attaching a sticker onto the favor container. Whatever your preference these little packages of goodness are bound to take an ordinary DIY favor and make it extraordinary!
