Favors Table





One of my favorite parts of planning a party is coming up with a favor that will be a little present to your guests and not something they’ll just trash. For a backyard harvest party that I recently threw, I sewed up some tote bags created from dish towels (I told guests not to look too closely at the stitching) and then filled the table with some fresh takeaways: monster cookies, baguettes, strawberries and flowers. Overall a simple concept but appreciated and not ignored. At least that’s what my guests made me believe.

Wow these favors look amazing, what a hostess! Where do you get the gorgeous little strawberry punnets, you can't get anything like them here in the UK? I love them and would even consider asking my friend in the States to get me some and bring them home with her next month.I love all the gorgeous details of your soiree, yours must be be the party to go to!

You are so hired!!

Julie said...

What a fantastic idea! I would love to walk away from a party with a fresh baguette and berries. Yum!

kbd said...

super... it takes the favor from being some lame obligation to something thoughtful, useful and really something that reminds people of the event! (PS: here in the States you get those little buckets at the grocer, depending on which shop you're buying from, unless these were specially bought?)

The little strawberry baskets are from this online shop: http://www.thinkgarnish.com/store/shop/?
