I heart Ikea

A few months ago I helped to host a bridal shower for my future cousin-in-law (Mr. Cupcake's cousin's fiancee... got that??). I was put in charge of the favors, so I went to Ikea — one of my favorite places to just wander and imagine all the possibilities -- and got these cute little jars that are like miniature versions of old school candy shop jars. For 36 jars, I paid about $28. They can sit upright or tilted on their side. I bought a slew of lavender satin ribbon from to wrap around the lids, designed little labels with the happy couple's names and wedding date, and filled them with mini pastel mints.

Voila! They were a big hit with guests of all ages. Cute, no?
