Honey Favors for Your Event

Honey event favors are pure beeliciousness! Many event favors are decorative but are shoved into a drawer never to be seen again, or worse yet, thrown in the trash once guests return home.  Just Iowa Honey event favors are perfect because they’re decorative and edible! 

 

Pure raw honey is healthier than the processed honey that many people are familiar with in stores. The sweetness comes naturally – we don't over-process the honey by pasteurizing or ultra-filtering the honey, nor are there additives in our honey.  Read more about our processing standards on the About Our Products page.

NOTEWORTHY!  We are in the process of updating all of our label offerings!  We have finalized the wedding options for the hex jars, but are working on the other event labels!

Customer Reviews

Wedding Event

We agonized about a party favor and came across these cute little honey bears. Valerie made top hats and bow ties and a customized label. We placed it on our reception tables and people at first were scared to take them as they were so professionally done they thought it was part of the catering.  Her small business ethics and customer service are above par and I highly recommend her and this product for weddings, family reunions, etc. Thank you, Valerie!

Order Placement

Placing Orders

CONTACT US

  • Contact Form

  • Call us at (515) 278-4835

    • For a customized order, a phone call is the best means to gain information and/or place an order.  

Noteworthy

  • You can buy just the jar of honey, and prepare the favors yourself - many people love do-it-yourself projects, so the option is yours! 

  • If we prepare the favors, you will not receive a pile of ribbons and dippers to manage yourself - the favors will come fully assembled if you are local! 

    • If shipping favors, the label and ribbon will be on the jar.  The dipper will come unattached with instructions to add the dipper to the jar.  Trust us, the dipper is the easiest part!​

  • Minimum order is 12 each if you are having us prepare the favor with a label, etc. 

    • If you are preparing the favors yourself, you can buy any amount of jars or bears, but to get the volume discount (noted under Decisions/Decisions section), you will need to order at least 12 each.   

  • Lead time for product delivery

    • 12 - 48 quantity, a 4-day notice is adequate, but it also depends on your flexibility on ribbon color.

    • 50 - 250, a 2-week notice is adequate.

    • If you want a certain color of ribbon, the longer lead time the better your chance in getting the color of your choice.   

  • Down payment of half of the order is requested when placing an order.  Balance due on delivery of products.  

 

 

Decisins, Decisions!

Decisions, Decisions!

Hex Jar Pricing

You will need to choose between glass hex jars or plastic honey bears.  Whether you are having a formal or informal event, and how much money you want to spend on favors will impact this decision.  The glass hex jars are more expensive than the plastic honey bears, but also more refined for a formal event.  We provide more information on the hex jars and honey bears below.  

HEX JARS

Compare the amount of honey in our jars (and the size of our jars) with other venders - you will find you get more for your money with Just Iowa Honey! 

 

Two sizes to choose from - the picture below provides insight on the difference between the two sizes:

  1. .18# hex jar with pure, raw Iowa wildflower honey

    • A little over 2.5 inches tall:  $3.15

      • Normally, $3.40/jar, but with a volume purchase, you are getting a 'deal' compared to the price on our SHOP page!  ​

  2. 1/3# hex jar with pure, raw Iowa wildflower honey
