We had koozies made up and they will be set at everyone's seat around the tables. I've also seen people just put them in a basket or something and put up a sign to tell people to take one. We're also doing a candy buffet so people have something edible too if they don't want the koozies. This will be set up next to the cake table.
Nope! We skipped. Not really necessary. You can skip if you like but if you want to do something choose something edible or it’ll be left behind or tossed. Ideas: a cookie, cake pop, boxes chocolate truffle, macaroons, brownie.
We are doing m&ms simple edible and our names both start with m so it works out perfectly!
My mom just asked me for my recipe for apple cider caramels the other day and I started thinking that might be perfect to use for our favor. They are a perfect fall treat and super easy to make- just a pain to individually wrap! I’m not sure if we’ll do favors at all, but these would be inexpensive.
My FH and I couldn't find the "perfect" party favors for our guests. There will be things throughout the day (like program fans, candy, glow sticks) that they can take with them- but not specifically party favors. Because we couldn't find some to completely fit our event, we decided to donate our party favor money to a charity that both of us love- in honor of the guests at our event, and display an "In lieu of favor signs" to let people know where the money went. Family and friends seem to love the idea.
I'm thinking of having candy in a centerpiece and passing out baggies so everyone can take it home too. Then it's a two for one, cleans itself up mostly.
I think we are going to make a donation to the American Cancer Society. My fiancé and I have both living and deceased family members who have cancer and this is a good way to raise money for a cause and not waste money on things people wont use.
We are doing personalized chocolate bars and instead of a display, we'll have them placed at the tables with the place setting (people are more likely to take them this way). My dad is a printer so we are getting wholesale pricing so we're getting a great deal. If we weren't, we'd probably skip them or just get chocolates without personalizing them.
