Gifts from the garden

Fall Garden Party: Favor Ideas & Free Printables

We love hosting fall harvest parties: They’re a charming way to share your garden’s beauty—and bounty—with the people you love. And a key element of any garden party is what the guests take home (besides a renewed appreciation for fresh fruits and veggies).

So we thought we’d share some of our favorite gift-from-the-garden take-homes with you, too. Read on for a variety of freshly picked party favor ideas, recipes and free printables, including herb-infused vinegars, canning jar labels, seed packets, food tags and recipe cards.

Can-do favors

Fellow foodies will love a folksy mason-jar favor filled with your garden goodness. Whatever you choose to preserve, our printable canning labels are here to help. (Don’t forget to note the date!)

Bottled brio

Send pretty bottles of homemade herbed vinegars home with your guests—they’ll add zip to any recipe! We’ve included printable hangtags in addition to three recipes, so you can bottle up your own version of vinegar vim and vigor.

Seedy deals

How about some takeaways for next year’s garden? Seed packets make a great favor. They might even spark a major guerilla gardening movement in a neighborhood near you!

Recipes for success

And don’t forget the recipe cards. Fill them out ahead of time so guests can take them home and recreate their favorites. Print out a few blank ones, too, for on-the-fly recipe exchanges.
