7 of the Best Coffee-themed Wedding Favours
1. Personalized coffee sachets and spoons
Fill burlap sachets with your favourite grounds and tie it closed with a ribbon coordinated to your wedding’s colour palette. Add a customized coffee or tea spoon with a favourite phrase or the couple’s initials like the ones from Jessica N Designs. Not only will the burlap add a charming rustic touch to your décor, but the coffee aroma will subtly seep out of the sachets and add another dimension to your event!
2. Coordinated coffee cups or mugs
A simple coffee cup filled with coffee beans, wrapped in cellophane and tied with colour-coordinated ribbons are a charming and useful favour. For sleek contemporary looks, use pure white or pick one of your wedding colours. Or, match cups to your theme – find vintage or antique teacups or elegant designs that coordinate your wedding theme by either rummaging antique stores or use an online wholesaler like Roses & Teacups to keep costs to a minimum.
