Food and drink are top-tier choices when it comes to treating your guests to a unique favor. And what’s not to love about a gift that tops off a perfect reception with instant gratification in the form of a sweet or savory treat to end the night! The event team at Cedarwood knows the popularity of edible favors and speciality tasting stations, and we wanted to share five of our favorites with you, plus one more!
1. Custom Styled Favor Bar.
Gourmet and Classic Favorites, both savory and sweet are irresistable, especially when they are displayed in lovely vessels! Let Cedarwood designers coordinate the favor bar to be cohesive with overall event styling and colors. We do all the work, including ordering the treats! (Photo credit: Jenna Henderson)
2. Food Trucks!
It doesn’t hurt that the father of this Cedarwood groom happens to be the CEO of Taco Bell (yep, THE Taco Bell) and was able to commandeer one of the company’s deluxe taco trucks for late night snacks. Guests ate it up….such a perfect ending to the evening. (Photo credit: Jen and Chris Creed)
Ice cream is also a welcome treat on summer nights, and this food truck delivered the goods! (Photo Credit: Teale Photography)
3. Cookies and Milk!
The quintessential treat before bedtime makes a whimsical statement at wedding receptions, and reminds us of the simple joys of life. (Photo Credit: Kristyn Hogan)
4. Last Call!
How about one more? Take the party on the road, when guests board the bus! Because no one likes last call. (Photo Credit: Michael Cogliantry)
And if there’s no bus after last call? Send guests home with a last drink that will perk them up before getting behind the wheel. (Photo Credit: Kristyn Hogan)
5. Late Night Action Stations.
The smell of freshly cooked food has its own draw, and to watch it being made to order is the best. Grilled cheese? Sliders and Fries? You bet guests will rave about this end to a fun reception party. The good news is that you order for half of your guests so there’s no waste and easy on the wallet.

Ok, technically not a favor, but let’s not forget that favors don’t always end great hospitality, sometimes they kick it off. We love the welcome treat bags you can order for your guests from Hello Nashville!
