simple party favors
Remember Ryan and Karolyn? They got married last weekend (so, so, so great!). Before the big day, I hosted a bridal shower for Karolyn and pulled together a very quick & easy party favor gift for all those in attendance. I wanted to share it with you guys – naturally – because I know that party favor ideas can come in handy from time to time. This is not wedding specific. In fact, this could be great for a kids’ birthday party, a baby shower … you name it!
I love sending notes to people and I love encouraging others to send a handwritten note to someone once in a while. In fact, if you missed my blog post entitled Sunday Notes, it’s a quick read and might get your wheels spinning.
So here’s how I did it. You can adjust quantities according to your needs, such as how many people are coming to your next party.
I bought four different packs of notecards at Target. They were all the same size / brand but just different styles. Based on the number of guests for this occasion, I had a couple packs of each style.
First thing I did is set up little piles of each card style so I could pull one from each pile / style with the idea in mind that each guest would get a little collection of four cards.
I printed quick notes that just say, “Thank you for celebrating with Karolyn! Use these notecards to send a thank you, a compliment, a just-because note….” and I cut those out to be the same size as the cards.
Next up: Pull one card from each stack and group together the four cards + the four envelopes + the little note to place on top.
I clipped the little set together with a tiny silver office clip. So cute and so easy to find at Target / Wal-Mart / office supply store.
That’s it, friends. Simple. Quick. Meaningful. And encourages positive action! For the bridal shower, I placed them in this thing I found at Home Goods. And while I’m mentioning “where I got what” … my blouse and necklace are both from Charming Charlie. ; )
