Gold Favor Box Black Ribbon
Confession: I had initially intended to drop the whole “favors” thing completely. The classic inedibles—shot glasses, candles, CDs, birdseed—often seem to be left behind by many guests. Even edible favors, while generally more of a crowd-pleaser, sounded like a ton of extra work and money for something people minimally notice.

Anyway, I was happy to let that one slide right off my to-do list, until a bolt of inspiration struck. We have a family recipe for these delicious spiced pecans that my grandmother used to make around the holidays. They are sugared with a blend of Christmas-y spices and feel very festive, and I loved the idea of using my grandmother’s recipe, especially because she has been unable to travel for some time and would not make it out for the wedding.
