This is pretty.a candy table! Saw this at a wedding once with a really cute, quirky poem about how "sweet" it is to be married, then guests got to take home a candy bag full of personalized candies from the reception!
Good idea, and probably cheaper than individual favors - My baby shower candy bar. Instead of sending guests home with a gift they didn't want, let them take a goody bag. I used an assortment of glass containers I had around the house.
