    Question Frugal Fall-themed bridal shower favors?

    I'm looking for ideas for something to make as shower favors for the bridal shower I'm throwing my sister in November.

    I like these, but I'm wondering if I could make them with wider ribbon and use the spiced-cider packets instead of tea bags. (The bride doesn't like tea!) http://www.blissweddings.com/brideideas/oct2000.asp

    Any other ideas? I'll need to make 25-30 favors.

    Wow...that's a cool idea. I think I will keep this in mind for overnight guests too. It's simple and pretty...and not goofy.

    Hmm...those are cute. I have favor bags and boxes that could work as long as you used a fall ribbon. Just because the bride doesn't like tea, doesn't mean you couldn't use tea bags. Just give her the cider packet. I'm wondering if tea bags would be cheaper.

    Here's a site where you can get some ideas on favors. Their items are a little pricey, but you might find something you like.

    I had a fall themed wedding last year. For my favors I bought candy in fall colored wrappers, and put them in candy bags (Wilton makes some each year with fall leaves on them). I used a lot of silk leaves that I bought from ebay to decorate. I got a lot of great deals on ebay.
