You probably don’t have room in your budget for $150,000.00 for party favors and you are probably going to limit the guest list to a lot fewer than 150 guests so you are luck. There are plenty of really cute, simple to make party favors you could make yourself for only a couple of dollars.
All of us recognize that bears like honey so we thought the guests could also. We gathered together individual packets of Stash vanilla honeybush tea, honey drops, some honey candy (the wrappers had cute little bees ) and Bit-O-Honey candy bars.
We might have just put all these honey flavored treats to a bag but I had another idea that could make them prettier to look at and more fun. The majority of the items we used for the packaging is seen in one of the numerous dollar or party supply shops. We used clear cello bags, the type florists use called corsage bags. You’ll find bags printed with many themes at party stores also.
We cut white poster board to fit in the bag and glued the things to the poster board. The Bit-O-Honey bar colors didn’t match our color scheme so we wrapped the pubs in newspaper. We personalized the pubs with the name and date of the Mother and baby. In case you’ve got a great graphics program on your computer you can customize the wrappers like we did. You are able to find a complimentary template by Google looking”candy wrapper template” and you will find YouTube videos describing how to New York City NYC Wildlife Control. If your party has a favorite theme, you can use themed wrapping paper rather than white paper to wrap your candy bars.
We tied the bag closed with blue, pink and yellow curling ribbon to match our color scheme. The complete cost, including the treats was $2.75 each.
The thought we decided on for your baby shower wasn’t the only idea I had. Since honey and tea were the key items we thought of putting all of these in a mug. The mug could have made a cute party favor take away but we still would have been required to utilize the cello bag and ribbon and because a mug could have added another dollar into the complete price we decided against it.
Why not include them in helping produce personalized party favors? You can add stickers if you prefer.
Twist the top of the bag over about a few inches. Using the hole punch, punch a hole about an inch on both sides of the center. Your child can write each guest’s name on the bag in colored marker and include an original drawing or decals if he or she wants.
After the bags are decorated, fill them with the treats you’ve chosen. Rather than picking all candy treats, include some healthy choices like granola bars and peanut butter crackers. To get a more vibrant bag, select a few different colours of curling ribbon and instead of a bow, curl each strand, providing your gift bags a very festive look.
Fill small canning jars with cherry and miniature marshmallows and tie on a recipe card with your favorite bread or cookie mix to get a wedding shower favor. A plastic beer mug with some beef jerky and a package of popcorn could be fun to get a Jack and Jill and a little baby bottle full of jelly beans or other candies makes a cute party favor for a baby shower. Check out the regional farmers markets for soap makers who’ll wrap goats milk or other hand made soap in a personalized wrapper. The options are endless.
