Ahhhhhhhhhhh! It's Fall again and the wonderful holiday party season is upon us.

Dinner parties and open houses are the norm for the season! And what would these soirees be without a small token of friendship from you the hostess to your guests? What am I talking about? Party favors! Party favors are the perfect accent to a tablescape and a perfect little gift to celebrate the presence of your guests in your home. We tend to associate favors with weddings and other large special events in one's life, but what is more special than having friends over for dinner? Party favors are fun, easy to do, fits a theme, and adds another dimension to your tablescape!


A clever idea wrapping the favor up in an napkin and securing the top with a napkin ring. How cute!

Purchased split bottles of wine and wrapped in purple and orange tulle and tied with black bow for my Halloween Bash last year.

Michele and I participated in the McHenry Mansion Foundation Tablesetting fundraiser
last year with a our theme Rockin' Morrocan. As our party favor we used a jeweled box
from Pier One, filled it with a yummy lavender truffle, added a name card that matched
the theme and tied with a bow.


What a cute idea! A ice cream bar favor make with Rice Krsipie bars dipped in chocolate with added candy sprinkles, a pretzel for the stick and tied with a orange bow!


What a fun favor for a fall or thanksgiving table! A little gold spray glitter perhaps to dress it up! I am all about the glam!


What says fall like a yummy caramel apple? This one wrapped in a cellophane bag tied with a leaf and raffia. Very special to your guests because you took the time to make something for them!


This little jar of honey is perfect for the Fall season as a favor. Tie a bow on the bottle and place the guest's name on it! Favors can double as place cards!

Be creative and have fun with your party favors! Favor ideas include candles, tea towels, wine stops, truffles, tree ornaments, note pads, kitchen gadgets, and for the guys try a little bottle of liquor or a cigar. We love to shop World Market, Pier One, Target, or even the Dollar Store to come up with inexpensive but unique party favors! Your guests will be impressed!
