S'mores Favors

Hey ladies, need some advice here.


I REALLY, REALLY wanna do s'more's as my favors.  Ideally, I want to pack the ingredients individually and have them placed on the tables with a thank you note attached (something catchy, like "S'mores love from the Mr & Mrs.  Thank you for sharing our special day" or something similar.


My problem is packaging them up so they don't get stale.  I'd love to do this the day before my wedding (or 2 days before), if I could find an inexpensive way to package them up.


My other option is to do a s'mores bar (have it set up after dinner) and hope the guests  know that this is their thank you favor for coming?  I don't know....I've never been to a wedding with "bar" thing before (candy, popcorn, s'mores etc.) so I'm worried how my family and friends will recieve this type of favor.


Oh and for our "fire" we are planning on setting up a rectangle table so people can gather on either side and toast their marshmellos using sterno cooking can things (saw this on pinterest).


Any ideas for me to try out in advance?  Anyone else have s'mores favors?  I'd love to hear how you did it and the reaction of your guests!!

Id buy the tiny individual wrapped hershey bars, go HERE to find the individual wrapped graham crackers and marshmallows will last quite a bit so If you do them the week of your wedding I think you will be fine!:) HTH!


so it would look something like this

Woohoo thanks ladies!! 


 


Btw, is there a way to insert/post pics without having to download the pic to your computer (or save to your computer before hand?)

We did a s'mores bar at our reception!  Everyone loved it.  You can see the pics in my bio.


I love the idea of a packaged s'mores favor, too.  Here are some I've seen:

I love the idea of a s'mores bar.  If I were a guest I would much rather have them there than take them home.  Such a yummy late night snack.
