At Olive Oil Co. – Barrie and Newmarket, we love to do favours. Especially when they’re wedding or celebration favours, also fondly known as ‘bombonieres’.

We’ve become a ‘go-to’ destination for the best, most useful event favours…and once you decide what you’d like, we do the rest of the work for you. Our most popular wedding bomboniere is a beautifully packaged 60ml bottle of your choice of olive oil or balsamic—we often do sets of 60ml oils and vinegars, too. The choice is yours; we do whatever you’d like!

Our products stand out as delicious, healthy and simple gifts for your guests…but we want to fit your colour scheme and style as well. You tell us what your event colors are and we’ll customize your gift bags or bottles with coordinated ribbon.

We’re ready to help you dazzle your guests with a unique take-away, and in addition to weddings, we also do custom orders for corporate events, volunteer appreciation and employee thank yous. Whatever your needs—from small bottles to customized baskets—we’ll help you plan and execute the perfect gift.

For one wedding last summer, the bride described her event as being “natural, down-to-earth, eco-friendly and rustic”. She was placing real ferns and wildflowers at each place setting, and wanted ribbon to match her theme. Her chosen colours were beige and cream. We looked forward to the challenge and eventually selected a burlap-and-raffia combo ribbon that we thought was fantastic—and the bride absolutely loved it!

For us, it’s an honour to be able to help you celebrate your special day with a fresh, delicious and unique gift that we know your guests will enjoy.
