I found these adorable mini-appetizer forks at Vons, fell in love and knew I had to do something with them! So here it is… mini-fork truffle seating cards… place on each plate for your guests to enjoy!

Supplies: Mozaik appetizer forks, 1″ round scalloped paper punch, mini-cupcake liners, Glue Dots, yummy truffles, pen and card stock of your choice!

First start by punching the round circles for each guests name, cutting the paper in strips if need be – to get the most from each sheet of card stock.

Next, write each guests name on your punched circles. Punch a few extras for mistakes.

Now the fun part! Apply a glue dot to the top, front side of a fork…

Then press the punched circle onto the glue dot on the fork!

Repeat for each guest! They just look so cute!

Next, carefully stab each truffle with a personalized fork and place into a mini-cupcake liner… then place on your guests plate!  I will say carefully again, if done too hard the fork will split the truffle in half – and then you’ll have to eat it!!! This step can be done at your reception, if not… place them all on a large cookie sheet to transport.

The choice of colors for mini-cupcake liners and card stock circles is almost endless!

How cute are these!!?? I love these little glass favor jars that are sold at Michael’s in the wedding section. I kept staring at them for weeks thinking about what I was going to create and while I was making some mini-cupcakes – it hit me. If the mini-cupcake liners could fit in these glass jars, I could do chocolate tasting! Another thing that I LOVE is chocolate tasting – so I am loving this favor – as I am sure any party guests will. So here we go: do-it-yourself mini-glass jars as chocolate tasting wedding (or bridal shower) favors:

Supplies:

  • Mini-glass favor jars 
  • mini-cupcake liners (I got mine from my favorite Etsy seller, Cupcake Social)
  • small circle labels (the labels are from Paper-Source)
  • your top three favorite chocolate bars!

First, wash your hands. Next, start by cutting up all your chocolates…

…make sure to keep your flavors separate. Using a large serrated knife works best for cutting chocolate.

Figure out what chocolate you want your guests to taste first… second and third. Usually lightest in color like white or milk to the darkest in color like my 85% dark chocolate. Pick your favorites.

With your first cup, gently push it all the way to the bottom of the jar. Then insert the appropriate chocolate.

Keep doing the same with each layer. Making sure you are adding them gently.

I chose to put the lighter cupcake liner in between the two darker colors purely for looks, it had nothing to do with the type of chocolate that was to be tasted.

When you have all three chocolate inside, close up the jar. The glass jar works so perfectly for chocolate tasting since the glass will keep the chocolate nice and fresh.

Next is applying your labels. You can download this layout that I created {here}. The labels are from Paper-Source, they are the 1.25″ round address labels – 48 come on one sheet. If you download my template all you have to do is put the labels in your printer and hit print. But you could also create your own!

That’s it! Pretty easy… but so darn cute!
