The Idea: Nothing warms a belly better than hot chocolate and warm gourmet cookies, which are exactly what guests were given at the end of one December wedding. Paper bags were on hand for guests to safely transport their selection home. When the valet brought their cars around moments later, guests found velvet pouches filled with hot-cider packets and cinnamon sticks on the seats. "Valet favors add a special touch to the end of the evening," says Christy Stoehr of Oh So Fabulous! "Guests love finding something waiting for them in their cars."
Why We Love It: Cookie buffets are a new, unique alternative to the increasingly popular candy buffets—and a surprise treat at the end of the night is a great alternative, or addition to, traditional favors.
