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.

CUSTOMER REVIEW

We agonized about a 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!

Event Ideas

The following are some event ideas for offering honey favors:

  1. Wedding

  2. Shower

    • Bridal 

    • Baby 

    • Gender Reveal 

  3. Company Event

  4. Birthday

    • First Birthday 

    • Sweet 16 

    • Milestone

  5. Special festivity, such as an anniversary.  

  6. What else haven't we thought of?! 

    • Curate your own label!

 

Placing Orders

You can reach out to us via our Contact Form, or you can call us, which for a customized order, a phone call is the best means to gain information and/or place an order.   We can be reached at (515) 278-4835. 

Please know that 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!  Also please know that if you choose to have us prepare the favors for you, you will not receive a pile of ribbons and dippers to manage yourself - the favors will come fully assembled and ready for your event if you are local!  If we are shipping favors to you, the label and ribbon will be on the jar, and the dipper will come with an elastic band and transparent sticky dot (to adhere securely to the jar side) and instructions for adding the dipper to the jar.  Trust me, the dipper is the easiest part!

  • The smallest amount of favors that can be ordered are 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 honey jars.    

  • Lead time for product delivery

    • For smaller orders such as 12 - 48, a 4-day notice should be adequate, but it also depends on your flexibility on ribbon color.

    • For larger orders such as 50 - 250, a 2-week notice should be adequate.

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

 

 

 

Decisions, Decisions!

Everyone likes to have the opportunity to choose their own destiny, and we do have options for you!

Decision 1:  Hex jars or honey bears; if honey bears, what color bottle cap?

Do you like the hex jars or the honey bears?  Whether you are having a formal or informal event, how much money you want to spend on favors may impact this decision.  The glass hex jars are more expensive than the plastic honey bears, but also more refined for a formal event.  

If choosing honey bears, you will need to choose the color of bottle cap that you want on the bear:

  • White

  • Black

  • Red

  • Lime Green

  • Dark Green

  • Baby Blue

  • Baby Pink

  • Dark Blue

  • Dark Brown

  • Orange

  • Purple

Decision 2:  What label should I choose?

The label examples on this page are just for getting ideas - let me know what you are thinking, and I will create several samples for you to review, provide feedback.  We work together until the label is to your liking.  Once you've decided on content, I work on the details (centering, placement, font sizing, and such).  You will get a proof, and I will not print labels until I have your approval!

  1. Hex Jars:  See label examples below.   

    • Arched or square​​, if choosing the hex jar.

  2. Honey Bears:  See label examples below.   

Decision 3:  Do I want add-ons to customize my favors even more?

Add-ons - you can determine if you want none, one or all of the add-ons for your event!  

HEX JARS

  1. Event color-coordinated ribbon - tied under the jar lid.

    • You will need to tell us what color ribbon that you would like.  For a wedding, if you have fabric samples, we can try and match the favor ribbon to your wedding colors.  I do have the swatch card of all 131 ribbons that are available, so if you are local, you can come and look at the swatches.  
    • Link to the double-faced satin ribbon color-chart that are used on the jars.  While I do have many various colors of ribbon, I can't guarantee that I will have the ribbon in stock for immediate delivery, but if you find a good match, and time allows, I can order in your choice of ribbon color.  

  2. Mini-honey dipper - tied to the side of the hex jar. 

  3. Customized labels - personalized as you like!

  4. Bridal netting - an elegant touch for bridal showers or wedding events!

HONEY BEARS

  1. Small bow/bow-tie around the neck

    • You will need to tell us what color ribbon that you would like.   For a wedding, if you have fabric samples, we can try and match the favor ribbon to your wedding colors.  I do have the swatch card of all 131 ribbons that are available, so if you are local, you can come and look at the swatches.  

  • Link to the double-faced satin ribbon color-chart that are used on the jars.  While I do have many various colors of ribbon, I can't guarantee that I will have the ribbon in stock for immediate delivery, but if you find a good match, and time allows, I can order in your choice of ribbon color.

  • Customized label - personalized as you like

    2.  Hat​

  • We have various hats that can be added.  Top hat, beanie cap, brimmed hat, cowboy hat, baseball hat.  

    3.  Customized label - personalized as you like.

Honey Bear

  • Because our minimum order for custom favors is 12 bears, you are getting a 'deal' compared to the price on our SHOP page, which is $2.50/bear.

Customized Labels - Hex Jars

The labels are available in either a rectangle or an arched design - rectangle labels have more surface area.  Below are just some examples - you can customize any label and mix and match to your own needs.

Tabletop Favor Signs

 

Consider your favor display - how will you distribute your honey favors to your guests?  You may need to consider a tabletop sign, inviting your guests to take a favor.  

We can customize a 5" x 7" sign for you - we can make them any size, but since the favors are smaller, I believe the 5X7 signs are about the right size!  If you are using a tiered display, then the table could support a larger sign.

 

Signs are printed on a laser printer on medium weight smooth cardstock.  We charge $4.00/sign to customize and print your sign!  If you need 2 signs, $7.00/two.  If you want a larger sign, for instance 8"x10", the cost would be $5.00

Considerations for Displaying Your Sign

I found some options for sign displays/frames, which are in the list below.  The frame that I used for the pictures above is option #2, which comes in black (pictured) or gold.  I liked this frame, as it is magnetized, and it is easy to center your sign in the middle of the frame.

 

To get the 'colored border' around the sign, I just cut the sign a tad bit smaller than 5"x7" so it allows a border.  Let me know when you order if you want a full 5"x7" sign, or a 6.50" x 4.50" so you can make use of a border.

  2. Black or Gold Acrylic Easel
