Fun Wine Wedding Favor Options

Wine Themed Candles

Wine Themed Candles

Your big day is a huge celebration, and what would a celebration be without great wine?  There are lots of wine wedding favors that you can consider for your reception décor, some for use during the celebration and others to be taken home as gifts.  You will have fun exploring the options, and when that toast comes, your guests will have fun using these tokens.

Wine glass charms are cute and colorful.  Find colors, shapes, and items that complement your colors and theme.  Arrange for the charms to be used on the champagne or wine glasses at the reception, or include them at each place with notes of thanks.  The idea of a wine charm is not exclusive to adults.  Children love sparkling cider and some brides and grooms strictly use this choice of beverage.  The charms are still whimsical and fun.

Wine bottle stoppers are also excellent wine wedding favors.  You’ll find lots of bottle stoppers to choose from in our selection, all of which are perfect for celebrating your big day.  You’ll also find elegant options in motifs such as the pretty Fleur de Lis.  These can be used in the champagne or wine bottles during the reception, or they can be displayed in gift boxes at each place.  Remind your guests to take them home, as these will be great mementos that can be enjoyed for many years to come :)

Planning A Summer Party

margarita party favorsPlanning a party is a complicated thing, but planning a party that all the guests will remember for years to come is a far more intense experience. It will pay off though with pictures, memories, and enhanced bonding with friends. After all, an invitation to a meticulously planned party lets all the guests know they are special to you.

Even if it is not obvious to guests, choosing a theme will help tremendously with party planning. Making the theme accessible, such as planning a summer theme in the summer, is helpful but not necessary. Summer is a vague theme capable of suggesting everything from margarita party favors to water balloons and beach balls. Some people are comfortable with this type of planning, but others will benefit by getting more specific.

A backyard BBQ, for instance, can become a summer island BBQ. A game, such as volleyball, badminton or pineapple bowling, can be combined with luau music and round paper lanterns or hibiscus lights. Always throw in at least two types of mosquito repellent! Personalized daiquiri or margarita party favors will give guests the chance to have a drink sometime later while remembering the great time they had at your party. Plus, it’s a heck of a lot of fun!

What specific aspects of summer would you like to highlight at your next party?

Tissue Paper Pom Poms

Decorating a large area for a party, such as a graduation, a wedding, a baby shower or a birthday party can be quite expensive and may take several items to cover the space. An inexpensive option is to use tissue paper pom poms. You can use tissue paper pom poms in a variety of ways to decorate a party area.

Centerpieces: Group several pom poms together to create centerpieces at your party. Use the same color or a monochromatic grouping of colors for a pretty look. Another option is to use colors that contrast well with each other, such as red and blue together. Place the pom poms in a clear vase or other glass container for an elegant look.

Canopy: Pom poms can be used to create a beautiful and romantic canopy. Place the canopy of pom poms over a focal point, such as the cake or gift table. This also creates a pretty zone to pose for pictures during the party.

Garland: Tying several tissue paper pom poms together can help you create a romantic garland. String the pom pom garland around doors, stair railings, walls or other locations to finish the pom pom decor for your party.
