Planning and creating a coffee wedding favor can be done very easily. Just follow the simple steps below and learn to create a wonderful coffee wedding favor basket that people are sure to enjoy.
The Container - You will fist want to find either a basket, tin or fun decorative box to hold all of the items in. Try to think about the theme and colors of the wedding as you are out looking for this container. You will want to incorporate as much of the color, theme and feeling of the wedding as possible. So pick something that matches.
Prep the Container - Next you will want to purchase raffia, tissue and possible some tulle for the gift basket. This will be something that you can put inside the gift basket and then place your coffee and gifts on top of. You can also use the materials for wrapping the outside of the gift.
The Coffee- This is an easy place to start it is central to the theme of the wedding favor. Try and plan the theme of the wedding first. Then select a coffee that goes along with that theme. For example a Turkish theme would necessitate a strong dark roast Turkish coffee. Of course if you have not yet selected a theme for the wedding another thing you can do is look for a local coffee roaster and purchase from them. This will give you guests a little taste of the local area and it supports your local businesses also. If neither of these easily fit into your wedding and still do not strike an idea for you a third option would be to choose your own favorite flavor of coffee. As forethought you might want to purchase both regular caffeinated coffee and some decaffeinated.
Personal Touches- Next you will want to add some personal touches and make the coffee wedding favor really stand out. There are so many ways to do this but we will give you just a few. These are mostly just to spark ideas for you that you will hopefully use and alter or personalize to suit your own needs.
Mugs - If you would like to round out the coffee wedding favor and expand from the basics a little bit more purchasing coffee mugs can be a quick and easy edition. You can easily purchase customized mugs to any color you would like. You can also add a picture easily to custom mugs and have the bride and groom smiling at everyone as they drink their coffee wedding favor.
Stir Spoons - Purchase some plastic spoons and dip them into melted chocolate. Wrap the spoons in some tulle and a nice ribbon and you have taken the coffee wedding favor tot he next level!
Candies and Chocolate- Another addition tot he gift basket can be a personalized bag of chocolate covered coffee beans. These can easily be purchased in bulk and then put into a tin or bag and customized with a quick label on the computer. Chocolate covered almonds can also be purchased in bulk in a wide variety of colors and finding one that matches the colors of the wedding and again making tins of them can be a fun addition to the coffee wedding favor.
Also last but not least in the chocolate category are straight unadulterated chocolates. There are not many coffee drinkers in the world that would turn down a wonderful elegant chocolate in addition to their coffee. Now do not go overboard with the chocolates here and purchase a 1 pound box of chocolates on sale or anything. In this category of chocolates less and better quality is really more. You probably only need a max or four to six special chocolates to do the trick.
Include Everyone - You want to make sure you include everyone in your coffee wedding favor gift basket and therefore including some non coffee items can be a very thoughtful addition. The following items will work just perfect.
Hot Chocolate - Have a lot of guests with young children coming to the wedding? If so you might want to include some fun hot chocolate with the favor and this way the children can join in on the fun also!
Teas - If you are worried about those non-coffee drinkers out there are there are always a few you can appease this crowd by placing a nice tea or some tea bags in with the gift.
