Show the kids at your wedding some extra love with heart-shaped PBJs

Heartshaped peanut butter jelly sandwiches

Is it weird that I was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at THE EXACT MOMENT that I stumbled across this great photo from Joy and Alec's wedding? Or is it fate?

For their kid-friendly wedding, Joy said that a friend of theirs cut out heart-shaped PBJs, a little nod to make the kiddos feel extra welcome. I really love this idea for a couple reasons: one, it might help out a parent or two to have some kind of kid-friendly snack around before dinner is finally served. Just to avoid some "hangry." And two, I (obviously) love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I will totally sneak two or three of those in between drinks in the cocktail hour.

So grab some heart-shaped cookie cutters and spruce up that sandwich bread. Do it for the kids. And the adults that never grew up, like me.

  1. As a kid (and adult) I would have appreciated some plain PB since I hate jelly. Just sayin' :-p

    • For my own part, I would appreciate almond butter or hazelnut butter, since I only like peanuts at all in Reese's. I think for my own purposes, I would do a lot of different kinds of sandwiches, with lots of toppings, but heart shaped.
