Jazz Up Your Jars

Another client asked us, “Hey Sofia’s Cakes, got any ideas on how I can label my jars for my wedding giveaways?”

Sure we do! Jars make for excellent giveaways for not just weddings, but for parties and other special occasions as well. While they aren’t as cost-effective as cupcakes, jars allow you an give out just about anything you want:

  • your favorite candy
  • cake, cheesecake, cookies, brownies, and other sweet treats
  • dry ingredient mixes of all kinds, from soups, to dips, even for cookies, smores, and hot chocolate drinks
  • jams, jellies, and preserves
  • spices
  • scrubs and salts

I’m sure there are a whole lot of other ideas out there, but as you can see, jar giveaways do give you lots of options.

So let’s check out a few cool ideas we’ve found online on getting labels on these jars of yours.

First off, we’d like to point out that there are lots of websites you can find online that give you free (as well as paid) printable templates for your labels and tags.

Customizing them shouldn’t be too hard– so you can replace colors to match your desired theme, and add in your own floral text, or little messages to your labels.

That said, let’s check these babies out in greater detail.

You can also add extra embellishments onto your jars.  Flowers are always a nice touch, but you may also have little character cut-outs, seasonal accents– anything you wish for an added touch of color and personality.

Again, these are but a few ideas, but we hope it gives you a good jump-off point for your own jar designs.
