Wedding Favor Idea: Girl Scout Cookies

girl-scout-cookie-boxes Who doesn’t like Girl Scout Cookies? Well, I do NOT have a sweettooth and a box of cookies will remain in my pantry untouched for months but Girl Scout Cookies are a totally different story.

Last week, my friend asked me if I wanted to buy Girl Scout Cookies to help raise money for her daughter to go to Disneyland.  Brilliant fundraiser.  It sure beats the Hershey's chocolate bars that I sold when I was still in school.  I reserved 5 boxes with her without hesitation - 3 boxes of Peanut Butter Patties and 2 boxes of Thin Mints. I bet they'll all be gone in a month.

Like I said, who doesn't like Girl Scout Cookies??

Since the box is so much larger than a traditional sized favor and does not match any wedding color scheme, I thought that it would be a neat idea to wrap the boxes up to match your wedding decor and place them at a favor table. I'm sure your guests would LOVE to open up that gift!  The favors can also act as escort cards.

Of course, there's the idea of placing a few different flavors in a cellophane sleeve with a custom sticker.  It's prettier but I'd be a happy guest if I got a whole box of cookes!
