Autumn Wedding DecorFall provides a perfect backdrop for wedding photos. There is something truly captivating about the fiery shades the foliage adopts over the course of the autumn. If you’re hosting a small wedding during this season, you may be debating what wedding favors will fit the mood. To truly dive into the autumn spirit, take a look at these clever favor ideas. 

A Little Spice

You would have to be living on another planet for the last decade to have missed out on the constant obsession with pumpkin spice in the fall. Though Starbucks might take a lot of the credit for the trend, the use of “pumpkin spice” dates farther back than its use in coffee. The spice blend is a mixture of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. According to several sources like, it has been used in cooking and baking for at least 3000 years. If you want a favor that really screams “fall,” incorporating pumpkin spice is a great move.

Luckily, you don’t have to limit yourself to lattes with this favor idea. Local bakeries are happy to concoct seasonal treats like pumpkin spice donuts or cookies that can be a sweet parting gift for guests. As with most herbs and spices, this mixture can also be incorporated into alcoholic beverages. Those who want to tackle a DIY project with their favors can consider concocting a rum-based drink by infusing pumpkin spice into the mixture. 

Straight From the Tree

Another flavor that has become associated with the fall in recent years is maple. In truth, this doesn’t make as much sense. Maple cannot be harvested from the trees until sometime in February or March, long after autumn has given way to winter. It would technically be better classified as a spring flavor. Still, you’re bound to see maple-flavored everything once October hits. It can also make your life a bit easier when it comes to selecting favors.

A bottle of homemade maple syrup from a small business is a wonderful favor that guests will seriously adore. If you’ve ever been to regions like Vermont or Quebec, then you may have an idea of some small maple farms you’d like to patronize. Otherwise, there are some great vendors you can discover online. Whether drizzled over pancakes or used as an ingredient to sweeten batter, maple syrup is a staple of all pantries and can make a delicious autumn favor.

The Apple of Your Eye

Unlike maple, apples are more on-brand when it comes to the bounty of the fall season. Even more classic than pumpkin spice lattes is a cup of hot apple cider when the temperature starts to drop. Since apples are easy to come by and a snack most people enjoy, incorporating this fruit into your favors is as easy as apple pie. A jug of hot or cold cider is a favor that can be put to use by guests right away. If you’re feeling adventurous, grab some spices and alcohol to make a tantalizing mulled cider. 

Symbolic Seeds for Tomorrow

A wedding is all about new beginnings, and fall is all about pumpkins. Naturally, a great favor that combines both of these concepts is pumpkin seeds. A packet of pumpkin seeds offers guests the chance to plant some gourds in their own gardens next year. While it might seem like a small gesture, the symbolic level of the gift is what it is all about. Plus, you can decorate the seed packets in a cute or unique way. 

Finding favors that meet the autumn mood is not very difficult. Focus on the flavors and sights of the season and you’ll easily discover the most fitting gifts to offer your guests.
