Wedding Favors: Pies in Jars

I have a strange love of weddings.  I’m not sure if it’s the romantic idea of being in love or the fact that they involve a big party, but regardless, I love weddings.

This weekend, I went to the wedding of two of the sweetest people I know.  Not only are they sugar, but they entrusted me with making their wedding favors.  Luckily, they didn’t hire me to be their wedding photographer (although that would have been fun and probably would have taken more pictures if that had been the case!), because I’m horrible and didn’t take a single picture of the bride and groom together.   I’m going to chalk that up to the fact that I was far away sitting in the middle of the row and I’m short.  I did manage to get a photo of the beautiful bride, Courtney.

Everything about their wedding was beautiful and totally fit their personalities.

I loved the flowers

and the cake

and the bridesmaids and their bouquets and dresses

and the table settings

oh my was I obsessed with the table settings…

But back to their wedding favors.

I made mini peach pies in jars.

The fabric on the jars matched each table setting.  Super cute idea!

Truth be told:  I had wayyyy too much fun making these.

I won’t lie, they’re not the quickest thing to make, but I think they added a great touch to this wedding.  I looked around as people sat at their tables and were pleasantly surprised to find a pie.  It made me smile and I think the bride and groom liked it too 🙂

Thanks Courtney and Andy for letting me contribute to your special day!  I wish you all the happiness in the world!

If you, or anyone you know, in the Los Angeles/Orange County area wants pies in jars at their wedding/baby shower/party/event, contact me at!

    Such an awesome wedding theme! Simple but fun at the same time.. Different animal Plushies on different tables, got everyone thinking, “why am i on the elephant table”?… Agreed on the flowers as well, I hate yellow (very much), but my oh my is that flower cute!! Love the tablecloth designs as well 🙂 and Karla, your pies look ridiculously fun and yummy….
