“A little bit of her, a little bit of him.” That adorable saying inspired Deborah Kavanaugh of Stillwater, NY to create these blueberry jam favors for her sister-in-law’s baby shower. Her husband came up with another saying, “A little jam… For the bun in the oven,” a perfect phrase for packaging up Deborah’s homemade jam into an adorable baby shower party favor. The guests at the shower loved the unique favors! Last summer, Deborah made homemade jam as favors for her wedding and now friends are telling her she should start her own jam party favor business!

Homemade preserves are great to serve at any brunch or afternoon tea party. Serve your guests homemade scones and jam and then let them take a jar home!
