Pastry Favor Buffet
Mar 18, 2012 05:32 PM Back By Majestic Gardens
The tradition of giving sweet wedding favors started centuries ago when European nobility presented wedding guests with small boxes filled with sugar cubes to take home. During these times, sugar was very expensive and highly valued because it was believed to have medicinal benefits. From there, sugar coated almonds, which symbolize longevity, wealth, health and happiness, became the most common wedding favor.

Today, traditional wedding favors are small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation by the bride and groom to their guests. Favors have evolved and couples no longer feel that they are limited to trinkets and keepsakes as their only favor options. Edible favors continue to be among the most popular wedding favors. Some of the most popular edible favors are Godiva chocolates, hot cocoa packets, ground coffee and flavored teas, as well as honey, maple syrup and olive oil in decorative jars.

The candy buffet continues to be a popular favor but the newer trend is the pastry favor buffet which combines the idea of edible favors with the favor buffet. Rather than candy in your wedding colors, guests are presented with pastries and cookies, decorated in your colors, to box and take home. The small bakery boxes are personalized and you can add a framed note thanking your guests for sharing your wedding day with you. Imagine how guests feel the morning following the wedding reception as they are having coffee and their favorite pastries.
