Put the extra elbow grease into your Wedding Favors and Packaging, and it will be a day your guests will never forget!

favors are those that match the theme of your wedding, suit your personality, and give your guests something to remember long after the reception is over.  You can combine wedding favors and packaging to give a unique overall impression without spending a ton of money on favors.

You might choose to make a homemade favor and dress it up with pretty boxes, tins or bags.  Nobody needs to know that the contents of these packages are homemade, unless you choose to tell them.  If making your own favors is too much work, you can buy favors in bulk and give them out in pretty, personalized wrappings.

Popular favor ideas include food items and usable items like cookie cutters, key chains or small pieces of jewelry.  Wedding favors and packaging can even be made from a special seeded paper that can be planted; when the paper degrades, the seeds will sprout and grow wildflowers.  This can be a great idea for an eco-friendly couple.

The best favors will be those that your guests will use and appreciate even after the event has finished.

Details are what make the wedding! Don't skimp out on your Wedding Favors and Packaging.

Don’t give up too much ground in the process.  Every detail is about your day and your style, and you are going to have a wonderful time exploring the possibilities.  Relish these moments as you create the enchanting day of your dreams.  From your gown to your reception décor, the little things matter just as much as the big details.  Wedding favors and packaging are lots of fun to think about because they are the takeaway elements that send your guests home with fond memories of the event.

Your personal style will dictate your choices in wedding favors and packaging.  You can use these as a way to express your sense of humor or you can be sentimental and sweet.  Perhaps you will select a simple token of thanks or maybe you will send a useful tool that will constantly remind your guests of their part in the day.  Customization is a fun trend in creating favors that fit well with the day, whether it’s as simple as the stickers on a candy box or as elegant as an engraved token.  Balance budget and whimsy to find the best possibilities for your day.

Wedding favors and packaging help keep the theme of the wedding focused. For brides who want an elegant look, they may want to use silk or organza pouches to place their wedding favors. They may tuck chocolates, almonds, keychains, small photos, candles or potpourri in the satchels. Creative brides that are having an Asian themed wedding may prefer packaging their wedding favors in boxes that look like Chinese takeout boxes.

Brides today are often more eco-conscious than in previous generations. Some brides use bird seeds and plantable stationery as their favor of choice.

Other small favors can be wrapped in tulle circles and finished off with a bright bow to match the color of the wedding.

How sweet it is!

Baby showers are a time of celebration, and what better way to celebrate the arrival of a new little one than with something as sweet as they are? An ice cream themed shower is a great idea for a coed baby shower, because who doesn’t love a little something sweet?  Favor-Days.com has some great ideas for your ice cream baby shower:

  • Ice cream social: Have a few different kinds of ice cream and let your guests create their own sweet treat. Put out toppings and let them make their own sundaes. For decor, go with pastel stripes or turn of the century details. This theme is a great way to indulge in the sweet things in life!
  • 50’s Themed Shower: Lots of fun and easy to pull off, this theme is an affordable but fun way to celebrate your newest arrival. Buy a few of your favorite sodas (orange, root beer, etc.), some crazy straws, and some vanilla ice cream to make floats. Decorate with old records and play 50′s tunes to set the mood.
  • Ice cream cupcakes: Not into ice cream? Try using ice cream cones and baking in some cake mix! Ice cream cone cupcakes are perfect for those who want something a little different. To continue with the cupcake and ice cream theme, use cupcake shaped flower centerpieces (short round vase, full bouquet of carnations with a red one on top or a fake cherry), and include cupcake details on your invitations and thank you cards.
