Create a fun and unique favor for any beach event, from weddings to birthday parties. The perfect option for any DIY enthusiast, make your own secret grill seasoning recipe so your guests can take the flavors of summer with them after leaving your fantastic party. Not quite sure of your cooking skills? Leave that to the professionals, and buy pre-made seasonings in bulk. The mini clear glass bottle with cork is the perfect container for your favor, and you can easily top it with a favor tag or label with your event name, logo or message. Tie it all together with some rustic, beach-y cord in the color of your choice.
Not only is pink Hawaiian sea salt good for you, it also makes a great favor for a beach-themed bridal shower or destination wedding, especially when presented in an attractive container. Favor boxes and bags, as well as jars, can be ordered in bulk and filled with whatever goodies you think your guests might enjoy. Personalize such favors with labels or favor tags that coordinate with the rest of your stationery. The pretty pink seashell and starfish design featured below is part of our beach themed wedding invitations collection, a gorgeous array of designs featuring seashells, starfish, sand dollars, tropical flowers, anchors and other charming themes.
Send your guests home with a bit of the great outdoors by making DIY wedding favors using fresh herbs. These nature-themed gifts make great beach wedding favors. We used mini white French-style pitchers and planted marjoram and chives (pictured below). But, you could use any frequently-used cooking herb, such as fragrant rosemary or thyme. Personalize these favors with custom labels and favor tags. We have a wide variety of beach-themed designs to use on nautical wedding favors and tropical wedding favors, like the hibiscus flower “thank you” label and tag below.
For a DIY wedding favor that will be truly appreciated by your guests, try homemade lavender bath salts. Not only do bath salts look romantic and sweet in little glass jars tied with ribbon, the fact that it looks like sand and is…well, salt makes it perfectly beach-themed!
You may not think of yourself as a DIY genius. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t create awesome DIY favors for a wedding or other party.
Candied pineapple is an impressive – and easy! – DIY favor idea. A fruit that is practically synonymous with paradise, pineapple is an especially good match for a beach event. Having a tropical-themed bridal shower or party? Or a beach wedding in a tropical location like Hawaii? Start with a recipe like this one from Martha Stewart. You can even use canned pineapple if fresh is out of season or unavailable.
Personalized treat bags (pictured below) are simple to create. The designs coordinate with our beach wedding invitations but can easily be adapted for a beach bridal shower or beach baby shower. The one below uses our Pineapple Wedding Invitations design – a fun way to continue the tropical theme.
