Harvard Sweet Boutique is an online gourmet gift company specializing in wedding centerpieces that double as favors.

Our centerpieces are made up of a collection of favor boxes, filled with all natural cookies, brownies, toffee, or truffles, and decorated with custom colors to match your event’s decor. Each centerpiece contains enough favors for each of your guests to take one home–but not before the boxes do double duty, adding color and height to your event’s tables in place of expensive floral arrangements.

Distinctive favor boxes, filled with delicious confections, embellished with colorful ribbons and arranged as a unified display in the center of each guest table are an economical and bounteous alternative to flower arrangements. Each centerpiece contains as many favors as there are guests at each table, so that each guest may take home a favor--but not before the centerpieces do the work of adding color and height to your reception's tables.

The centerpieces can be created using any color palette or design theme that can be dreamed up. There are a remarkable number of box options available, and an infinite array of ribbon colors and patterns. These smart centerpieces, along with inexpensive table props, coordinating candles and table linens make the possibilities endless for an eye-catching table setting. Try one of these ideas:


ASIAN--Evoke the beauty and elegance of the Far East while retaining a distinctly modern sophistication. Starting with stylish black and white dotted boxes, choose your favorite ribbon color--from rich, but subtle burgundy to bold, bright shades of fuchsia and orange. Stack the boxes in the center of the table, like a pyramid, surround the centerpiece with votive candles covered with rice paper, and rest chopsticks on a smooth river stone at each place setting. Your guests will be transported to an Oriental paradise.

CITRUS--Few things say summer better than fresh, juicy, bright colors--think lemons, limes and oranges. Acollection of coral colored dotted and striped boxes with kiwi green striped ribbon will add refreshment and cheer to any warm weather celebration. Start with a long picnic table or other family-style setting, and cover it with a bright, whimsical tablecloth--perhaps a green, tangerine or gold linen with dots or stripes. Set the favors in the center, creating one long row down the middle of the table. Then fill long, rectangular, white platters with fresh lemons and miniature glass votive candles, and place these in line, alternating with the favors. This will create a sweeping, summery swash of color and excitement in the center of the table, capturing the essence of the season, with little cost or effort.


GARDEN PARTY--Hues of rich pink and bright green are ideal for a lively, contemporary garden celebration. Green and white striped boxes trimmed with bright pink polka dotted ribbon set the stage for a subtly elegant shower or luncheon. Add a pink polka-dotted tablecloth, linen napkins of leafy green, and a single pink peony on each of your guests' white china plates, and you'll have a chic, fresh look for the sunny months.


SOPHISTICATED--Bright colors set against black are the latest trend for refined celebrations. Black polka dotted and striped boxes can be adorned with any color ribbon, including fuchsia, orange, lime, aqua, violet and yellow. Combine two or more of these colors, such as violet and lime, for even more depth and drama. Start with a black linen or satin-finish tablecloth, coordinating your napkins with your bright ribbon color. Use the embellished boxes to build a pyramid in the center of a round table, with the ribbons all facing out, creating a cascade of color and texture. Orange- or lime-colored candles and some stylish stemware lend additional flair.


OCEAN--Tranquility, beauty, and majesty will be the hallmarks of your event when your colors and motif are reminiscent of the ocean--no matter where your venue is located. Combine richly-colored azure ribbon with earthy brown "treasure chest" style boxes, filled to the brim with fresh confections. Natural elements from the beach, such as seashells, sand and tumbled stones can provide an underwater backdrop for floating starfish-shaped candles. Nautical rope, tied with a decorative knot, can be used to create napkin rings. Inexpensive and easy to assemble, this theme will transport your guests to a relaxing, windswept moment in time.


ROYAL--Having a winter wedding? Select warm, deep and luxurious tones for your event. Shades of red and gold make for a vibrant indoor setting, imparting a festive character to the space, and contrasting with seasonally austere weather. Regal gold boxes with rich ivory and gold-starred ribbons will shimmer on a plush, red table linen. Place a red rose at each place setting to finish the scene with an aura of elegance.

Whatever the season, occasion, or venue, given a bit of resourcefulness, you will be able to create lavish-looking tables with much less expense than anyone would ever suppose. Your guests will be delighted by the magnificent setting, and will leave with a personal memento and scrumptious sweets for the ride home!

Such a great alternative to traditional floral centerpieces - everyone loved having a 'snack' to take home at the end of the evening. Not only did the centerpieces look elegant enough for a black tie event but the cookies tasted great too!

Sue at Harvard Sweet Boutique was wonderful to work with. She was very accommodating, patient and helpful in finding the perfect boxes and ribbons for our combination gift/dessert/centerpiece. The end result was exactly what we hoped...a pop of color to compliment our elegant all white tent. And the desserts they make taste wonderful! I highly recommend Harvard Sweet Boutique. You won't be disappointed.

Harvard Sweet Boutique provided the BEST cookies in the most beautifully decorated boxes (color coordinated, of course) for the event! They were so beautiful that we used them as table decorations. People were eating the cookies along with the plated dessert at a five star venue. Luckily, we had enough for them to still take some home. I have sent packages to friends since and it is the same high quality. I HIGHLY recommend Sue and Harvard Sweet. She delivered promptly, on time so no worries for us on that count either.

Sue George created the favors for our Cape Cod wedding. We had little chocolate brown boxes tied with purple satin ribbon and violet tulle, to which my fiance and I affixed a custom tag inside of a glassine envelope. It had our photo on the outside, and a list of the 3 things we love most about each other on the inside:

Eight mini cookies were tucked into each box, and placed at every guest’s family-style place setting. The cookies were such a hit that people are still talking about them over a year later!
