Fruity Favors

Does anybody else get a kick out of all the funky vegetables and gorgeous fruit you can find at the farmer's market?  As I was walking around today, I got a great idea for how to incorporate them into a wedding.  

Is there anything more beautiful than rows upon rows of gorgeous heirloom tomatoes?

When I first saw these I thought they were teeny weeny watermelons.

But no!  They are miniature sour cucumbers!  Don't you think they would be cute in glass jars at a green and white wedding?  You can eat them right out of hand--they taste a little like they've already been pickled.

My idea: instead of a candy bar for guests to take away with them, why not a fruit bar?  You could fill glass jars with berries, tomatoes, miniature plums, cherries, or whatever.  Summertime produce is so glorious that I think guests would be really pleased.  The only concern is that fruit might be a little bit more perishable than candy, but not much--I've always found most fruit to be surprisingly sturdy.  Besides, berries and plums are much better for you than M&Ms!

This is one of the most fabulous and most creative ideas I have heard in a long time. The fruit bar is a fantastic idea! I really love those mini cukes!

My dad is an organic onion farmer and I have been thinking about doing an "onion display" for favors, attaching little tags for recipes that involve onions on each bag. It would be adorable but so much work! This is such a better idea, a fruit and vegetable variety display would be so fun!
