With the season turning cooler, it is the perfect time to throw a Red Riding Hood party. Throw all the party goodies into picnic baskets, and find a perfect little spot hidden in the trees. Any kid would love playing wolf with these masks, and the finger puppets are perfect party favors.
At every party I throw, I always like to make a little something for guests to take home with them. Here are a few of my favorites. Which ones have you tried? (To see all of Oh Happy Day’s favor ideas, click here.)

One of my favorite things about party planning is coming up with ideas for what to give the guests as a little memento. There are so many options when it comes to party favors but I tend to prefer giving edible gifts that everyone will love. The presentation of your party favor is as important as what is inside, so adding a little attention to the packaging will impress your guests. These paper stripes favor boxes are simple to make and easy on your wallet. You can add homemade or store-bought cookies, candy, or little trinkets inside the boxes.

Have you heard about the Crafting Community event at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs? Crafting Community is a laid back weekend retreat for families. It is a also creative retreat, so there are lots of fun, interactive workshops for kids and parents. The Ace is one of my favorite places and I cannot wait to take my family there again.
Here is the best part, Oh Happy Day is teaming up with our favorite striped clothing company, Splendid to give a reader the chance to win a trip for 4 to Crafting Community plus a $500 Splendid gift card! Entering is super easy, between today and August 30th, just click here to visit Splendid’s Facebook page and enter online. (Or, you can enter in store at one of Splendid’s locations. There will be a $500 Splendid gift card awarded to one runner up online and $100 gift cards awarded to runner ups at each Splendid location so there are lots of opportunities to win!)
ps: We made these mini pinatas favors inspired by the Crafting Community event. I love the idea of making unique party favors for each of your guests following a theme and fill them with goodies and surprises. Just hang them up on a wall and they double as decorations and favors to take home. Click through below for the complete DIY.
