Favors can be a great way to add personality to a SOIREE…however, many clever DIY-ers make the common mistake of forgetting that people that attend an affair often had to travel to get there [either by plane, car, or even boat]. With that said, those adorable little succulent favors that you hand-planted yourself will very likely end up being left behind in the hotel room. It’s best to keep it simple rather than spending a ton of time and money on something that will be appreciated, but quickly forgotten about. Edible favors are always a good way to go, or something that your guests can use during their stay wherever your SOIREE takes place. As long as it’s easily transportable and represents your personality, your guest will be thrilled to have a little gift to remind them that you are grateful for their presence.
There are so many clever favor ideas out there–the hard part is picking a favorite. And don’t forget, it’s easy to underestimate the cost of favors so keep that in mind when you are coming up with what you would like to give to your guests [$3 a favor for 150 guests = $450!]
