Lemonade Favors

Wedding season is in full swing!  This lemonade favor is a simple, affordable, and time-saving DIY favor that is perfect for a summer wedding.  These favors add a subtle touch of color and brightens up any table.  Plus, guests can use the empty mason jars for potpourri or a scented candle.  I recently made these favors for my best friend's bridal shower this past weekend.  Pictures of the bridal shower can be found here
1 bag of lemons (~9-10 lemons)
2 gallons of lemonade
24 mason jars
24 gold daisy flower cut lids (purchased from Etsy here)
Twine or ribbon 
Personal labels (optional, purchased here)
Paper striped straws (purchased from Magnolia Bakery. Also sold on Etsy.)

  1. Wash lemons.  
  2. Slice lemons approximately 1/2 inch thick.  Discard the ends of the lemons and seeds. 
  3. Place two lemon slices in each mason jar. 
  4. Fill with lemonade. 
  5. Screw on daisy cut lid. 
  6. Tie with ribbon or twine.  Affix personalized label. 
  7. Insert paper straw.
  8. Serve and enjoy.
Note:  If you are transporting these favors to another location, first secure the lid with the original mason jar lid.  Once you arrive on location of the event, swap the lids with the daisy punch lids.  When the event is over, guests can have the option of securing their lids with the original mason jar lid for easier portability.

Wash lemons.
Discard the ends of the lemons.  I also discarded the seeds so that guests wouldn't slurp up any lemon seeds. 
Place two lemon slices in each jar. 
Fill with lemonade.

Secure lid.  Tie with twine or ribbon.
Add label.  I made these personalized labels here
I found these wonderful gold daisy punch lids on Etsy by MoreSprinkledJoy.  
Affix lid. 
A simple yet adorable party favor.  [Above picture taken by Ms. Jeeyoon Park.]
Happy wedding season.
