Cutting Corners #Edition 2: Party Favors
April 26, 2012 § Leave a comment
For this edition of Cutting Corners, we are going to focus on party favors! Party favors are one of those costs that creeps on you slowly without much warning. When you think $5 per favor is doable, suddenly multiplying it to 250 guests leave you $1250 poorer. But fret not, we figured a couple of party favors that will play nice to your bank account!
1) Chocolate Covered Strawberries
This decadent treat is everyone all-time favorite. You can either buy it from a chocolate store (usually runs about $2 -$3 per piece, depending on the intricacy of the design) or make it yourself! Buy yourself a pound of good quality bittersweet chocolate, melt them via microwave (make sure to stir them in intervals) and dipped the strawberries while it is hot. Set them aside. Optional: Once cool, drizzle again with another kind of chocolate such as white! Pack them individually as you desire!
2) Mini Cupcakes
Let’s face it, cupcakes makes everyone happy. Including fairies. If ordering cupcakes from a bakery is not an option for you, why not make it yourself? Make little bite size cupcakes that would fit into a tiny little cute box that would leave your guests going “Oooh” and “Ahhs”. We love this “Baby Cakes” maker!
No, we don’t think your guests will be offended. What a nice way to treat your guests with local, organic soaps that is sold in your local farmers market. Most soaps would typically run about $3 if you buy 3 or more but you might score more discounts if you were to buy in bulk. This cute local party favor will leave your guests smelling oh-so-delicious.
4) Tea Bags
Love tea? What a great way to personalize your event by sharing your favorite tea to your guests! Buy your favorite, unique tea bags in boxes( no, Lipton doesn’t count). Bag them separately in cute little glycine bags. Add more flair by adding a thank-you note in the bag!
Make your own blend of potpourri by going to your local craft store and picking out your favorite flowers/plant. Make a huge blend and bag them individually. What a cheap and great way to share personalized crafts with guests!
We hope you enjoy this post as much as we do. As always, we hope this inspires you!
