Package Your Favor

I can't tell you how busy it's been lately, I sure have missed blogging these past few weeks. I should be back to normal now :) I've been thinking lately about the elements of a good party, more than good really, I guess a stylish party! One of the things that stood out to me that all stylish parties have are pretty favors. Favors, gifts, giveaways, take aways, good bags, loot whatever you call them they're all the same, a nice little token of your appreciation for each guest. I really have a BIG problem with those little bags of junk toys you normally get at the "birthday factory" type places, most times it's stuff you wont let your kid have or play with. I lean more towards edible, at least that way you can bet that they didn't go to waste.

To ensure that your party favor is stylish and lending to the décor of the party if you decide to leave them out, is to make sure the packaging is pretty. Here are some ideas and examples of some of the prettiest favor packaging I've seen.

Cookies in a great jar

Sweet treat in a box with ribbon, tag, and fork

Could be anything in here right?! But it doesn't even matter because this is a great reusable bag with nice modern tag. THE cutest little "Stash Bag"

Hope you're inspired for these ideas!

Share with me some pretty favor packaging you've done or seen.

  1. Great post! Love all the pretty ideas! I created some packaging that I show at the end of this blog post: http://justabitedesserts.com/pink-and-brown-sweet-treats-for-the-holidays/ There's a link to the tutorial for it. :)

  2. Great ideas! I'm always trying to think of cool things to put into favor bags, especially for a kids party, so I check with my own kids to see if they approve.

  3. Awesome post! I totally agree with you about the goodie bags most of the time they eat the candy and toss everything else. I love the edible favors, recently I did a 15's and the favors where Marshamallow Pops in cello bags with a ribbon. They where a total hit I think most people ate the favors before the party was over LOL. All these ideas are great I will need to try at my next party.

    Have a great day


  4. Thanks so much girls! @Just Bites, love the tutorial! @J - Kids know what kids like that's for sure! Since mine is so young I'm usually borrowing someones kid to ask lol

  5. Love this post!! I just had a party for my daughter who turned one!! I really feel that people should set a per person budget $, because when they don't do that, then the favor bags will have cheap unwanted junk bags, my daughter had a awesome party and what please me the most is knowing my guest took home things that said I care about them making the investment in time to come and share this event with us!! I can only pray that everyone will take time to think out what ones guest will enjoy when they get home from the event!! Please check out my blog at www.happilyeverafterhome.blogspot.com. I love your style!!!
