Well, it won't be a secret much longer. For the past several weeks I've been thinking about our popcorn favors. I still really like the idea of the glass bottle soda bar, but I just cannot fall in love with these popcorn favors. In fact, lately, I've hated them more and more every day. For a refresher, here is what they look like:
I still think the idea is cute (and the movie theme meshes with our hobbies), but I just can't see them out our wedding reception. They just don't fit. I want something more vintage or rustic. Something that fits with the theme I'm hoping for.
Ready for the secret? I dumped the popcorn favors this week... but not before finding something to replace them with... Here is a hint:
Still not sure what it is? How about this?
If you are still confused, let me clear things up for you. A long time ago, I fell in love with these beauties:
I decided that they will fit the look I'm going for better than the popcorn. A little more vintage/rustic chic. :) So, I bought the vanilla beans and the glass bottles with the corks. The vanilla beans arrived today (I bought 1 pound on eBay from seller VanillaProducts for $13.98 plus $5.00 expedited shipping and I got a free 10 pack of beans with the order) and the bottles should arrive on Monday or Tuesday. Which means, I will be making homemade vanilla early next week! :)
Oh, and for a sneak peak, this is what the bottles look like:
I got them for 49¢ a piece at Save On Crafts. I am only going to do one bottle per couple so that I don't have to make quite so many of them. Then there will be another special favor surprise later. :) I am so happy that I eventually came to this decision! And, I'm so excited to make the vanilla!
