Here's a fun and delicious but cheap bridal shower favor idea that will have everyone smiling. I am always on the prowl for cute, creative but inexpensive shower favors that our guests will actually enjoy.. nothing beats this one, as who doesn't love homebaked cookies! Decorate them with these adorable heart shaped cookie cutters that are themed with the play on words - Cut Out For Love and you have a great bridal shower or anniversary or even wedding favor that everyone will love to bring home!
I was happy to see how cute they were when they arrived with a "Cut Out for Love" sticker right on the gift box! Next, the fun starts.. you bake cookies, individually wrap them so they stay fresh and put them in a cellophane bag tied with ribbons. Attach the cookie cutters and then make a cute tag with the couple's picture on it. I liked the tag line "Cut Out for Each Other" better, but it's up to you! Our kids first did this as a favor at our 25th wedding anniversary party they gave for us. I took the idea and made them for a close friend's anniversary party as you can see in the photos below. However, they are a perfect bridal shower favor and very affordable. Here are some great tips for easy cookies from our Easy Christmas Cookies page.
Now to personalize.. I simply took a photo, scanned it and then in Microsoft Publisher, I added the text and tied it around the bag of 5 cookies! This sample was from an anniversary party.. but for a bridal shower add a picture of the engaged couple who are truly "Cut Our For Each Other". How cute and for 25 of these creative bridal shower favors, it cost under $3.00 per favor - including the cookie cutter, cost to make the cookies, ribbon and bag! You can't beat that.
We put them in a big wicker basket and made a bow to dress it up. Or you could put them at everyone's place if you are doing your bridal shower in a restaurant. Who wouldn't love to go home with homemade cookies!!! This Cheap Bridal Shower Favor Idea is one of many in our Shower Ideas section!
