As favors, your guests can take home a half dozen box filled with your personal favorite. Or maybe put one in a cake box and place a sticker adorned with your names and date on the top. Have someone pass these out to the guests at the end of the night as guests are leaving. Or place them in rows on a table near the door for guests to pick up as they exit. Don’t be surprised if many guests don’t want to wait until morning, you may catch guests tearing into the packages as soon as they’re heading toward the car!
