Wedding showers are a great way to bring together the couple’s close friends and family to shower the lovebirds with love, attention, and presents.
The wedding couple, in turn, show their appreciation by offering thoughtful wedding shower favors to mark the memorable day.
It can be difficult to nail favors that everybody will love without it eating up your time and leaving a dent in your wallet.
However, you can never go wrong with Layla's Delicacies.
We’ve gathered tasty treats and some of our favorite wedding shower games to ensure you and your guests have a blast.
Break the Ice With Appetizing Baklava Pistachio
Your friends and family have honored the invitation to your wedding shower. They might not all know each other, so the energy in the room is a bit dull and conversations a bit strained.
Get the party started with an icebreaker to help your guests ease the tension, relax, and have fun.
A great way to do this would be with an interactive game such as Find Your Guest.
To play it:
- Make card games with an interesting fact about each guest
- Shuffle the cards and give one to each guest
- They should go around the room and match the information in the card to the owner
To make the game even more interesting, add our delicious Baklava Pistachio to the mix.
Once a guest finds the card owner, they welcome them to the party with the treat.
Baklava Pistachio is a flavorful, nutty pastry that was a highlight of grand feasts in the Ottoman palace—prepared only by the greatest chefs of the region.
We maintain that royal sweetness by incorporating Mediterranean-inspired ingredients that will leave an unforgettable taste on your guests’ palates.
Each box comes with 18 pieces of freshly baked, bite-sized treats that have:
- Crispy filo outer layers coated with olive oil, lemon zest, and a light golden syrup
- A dense nutty filling with finely chopped pistachios and ground almonds, giving the pastry a divine taste
Here’s what our customers say:
“A dessert with world sophistication. If you consider yourself a baklava connoisseur your expectations will not be disappointed. Each piece is fresh, has a unique shape, a different texture, and taste. I have had amazing baklava from Greece, Turkey, Egypt, and Lebanon but none compare to Layla’s. Buy a box for yourself and a friend. That friend will be your friend for life!”

Cocktail Battle and Savory Samsa Pistachio Sweets
Will you be serving cocktails at your wedding?
Get some inspiration from your guests by involving them in an exciting cocktail competition. The bride's favorite concoction gets to be part of the D-day drinks.
Make the party pop with some music and pass around our finger-licking Samsa Pistachio sweets.
Samsas are synonymous with celebrations in most Asian, Middle East, and North African countries.
Our Samsa Pistachio borrows from the Tunisian recipe to give you authentic, flavorful, and party-worthy sweets.
With each box, you’ll get 18 pieces of mellow Tunisian triangles with a luscious and crunchy filling made from a blend of almonds and hazelnuts wrapped in a crispy filo sheet. The sweet is doused in a sugared syrup and orange blossomed water and then crowned with chopped pistachios.
The result is a mouth-watering favor that will leave your guests impressed with the rich Mediterranean cuisine and your memorable wedding shower.
Cold Feet Game: Winner Gets a Treat
If you’re hosting your wedding shower in the summer, take it outdoors where everyone can enjoy some play, sunshine, and sweets.
Try playing Cold Feet and entertain your guests with some chilly fun.
To play it:
- Fill large bowls or buckets with freezing water and throw in some plastic rings
- The players must plunge their feet into the ice-cold water to retrieve the rings with their toes
- Set a timer; the player with the most rings wins the game
Reward the winner’s valor with Kaak Warka sweets.
These tasty ring-shaped Tunisian delights were first baked to honor Tunis forefathers who hid their treasures in baked dough to protect them from looters when escaping from Spain. The treat is prepared with sweet almond paste in place of the precious jewels.
Like the traditional treat, we make our Kaak Warka from scratch with only authentic Tunisian ingredients to give you an unmatched taste of our heritage.
We use natural ground almonds infused with distilled rose water from Nesri (a rose found on the mountains of Zaghouan, near the south of Tunis).
We then wrap the almond paste in thin pastry dough, shape them into pretty little donuts, and bake them at low heat to maintain their white inviting color.
Campfire Games While Snacking on Almond Fingers
If you’re outdoorsy, a camping trip may be the ideal way to bring your family and friends together for a wedding shower.
Add some interactive campfire games and create unforgettable memories with your loved ones.
Here are some fun activities you can try:
- Love songs trivia—Create a playlist of love songs and let the guests guess who sang it.
- Wedding couple trivia—Come up with interesting questions about the couple and see which guest knows them best.
- Telephone wedding toast—One guest comes up with an extraordinary toast to the couple and whispers it to the next guest. You’ll have a hearty laugh when you hear the mangled message at the end.
If you’re looking for the perfect wedding favor treats for your guests to snack on around the campfire, these heavenly Almond Fingers will delight them.
This celebratory Mediterranean sweet has its origins in Morocco and Tunisia and is a favorite morning pastry for many. It’s made from a delicate blend of almonds and hazelnuts, soaked in sugar syrup, and wrapped in crunchy pastry sheets. It’s then rolled into lovely edible cigars.
You’ll love how the nutty flavor and surprising sweetness from the syrup give the Almond fingers an exquisite taste. Wash it down with a cup of Turkish coffee and you’ll understand why it’s a cherished morning pastry in Tunisia.
“Amazing! I finally tried these delectable little bites of phyllo and almond. They are addictively delicious with the perfect delicate crunch. They come individually wrapped so you can order them in bulk and readily share a handful with friends or family, by placing them in one of the numerous boxes you have from all the other Layla's treats you have ordered previously!”
