Party favors are a great way to show your appreciation to your guests for attending your event, and they also serve as a souvenir or reminder of the special occasion that you just celebrated, but sometimes they are not the easiest of things to choose.
The best way to decide what types of favors to give your guests is to think about the type of party you are hosting and the age group of the guests attending. Also keep in mind that party favors must be simple, creative, and should include a design that reflects the host’s personal style and taste.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when choosing your perfect party favors:
-Give party favors that are designed according to the theme of the party. The theme could either be an idea, a color, a popular cartoon character, a movie or a particular era in history.
– Children love any type of favor that will give them an activity to do or something fun to play with. Some great favors are bubbles, coloring books and crayons, candy, toys, and books.
-Teenagers enjoy things a little bit more sophisticated. For example, teenage girls like nail polish, picture frames, or cool candles. Teenage boys would prefer something related to video games, sports, or music.
-For a formal adult event, table centerpieces like flower arrangements or vases make great party favors for the guests to bring home. If your event is more informal, cookies, margarita glasses, or scratch cards are great favors.
-Craft your own party favors. Cards, hand painted figurines, miniature paintings or small knitted items are interesting party favors. It makes the guests more appreciative to receive personally crafted party favors, especially when they know you made the articles on your own.
-You can always personalize party favors for guests as well.
