Easter Hat Favors DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Here is a cute favor that can be used for Easter, a Mother’s Day Brunch, a Garden Party or a little girl’s birthday party. You can present the favors on a tray, or hang them as a garland for guests to take one on their way out. Print or write out a sign that says, “Hats off to you! Thank you for coming!”

Funny Bunny Easter Favors

by Ashley Page Norton 

These cute favors feature my favorite treat, mini marshmallows. They come together quickly with a few craft supplies you probably already have around. By using a variety of colors of paper, washi tape, and paper napkins, each bunny has it’s own look and personality. You could even use them to play the “chubby bunny” game, but I think the marshmallows are much better savored!

Valentine’s Breakable Heart Favors DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

The fun of these Valentine’s is that you HAVE to break the heart to get to the goodies inside! Simple paper hearts, with a top and a bottom, contain candies or gifts, whichever you prefer. BUT, the only way to get them out is to literally “break your heart!” For more Valentines Day DIY ideas, click here!

Packaging Candy Favors: 3 Ways

There are a few trains of thought of party favors. You can give a knick-knack like a bottle opener or a magnet, for kids’ parties it usually consists of cheap toys and candy which eventually make their way back to a landfill. I’m firmly in the camp that favors should be food (If you had a large budget I could be persuaded pretty easily to another camp!) Food is easy, doesn’t seem wasteful, and it’s more likely to get used. I also really like how easy it is to match the party theme with the food. I like to have packaging options on hand for this very thing. Package up some of that European candy and voila’! You’ve got a really beautiful gift option. Here are three examples of easy favor packaging. For these, we used Clear Round Containers, Paper Bags, & Pillow Boxes. You can set them out as table settings at a party or wedding or keep them available for guests as they leave. Click through for more details & full instructions below!

Bat Candy Favors DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

How do you make a Halloween treat even better? By disguising it as a bat. It’s like a costume for candy! I used candy I put in cellophane bags, but save yourself some time and use some pre-packaged, bite-size treats. (PS – More Halloween ideas here!)
