The Finest Favors for Any Holiday Party
When planning a holiday party, it’s not just about the decorations or the food or the music, it’s also about what the guests take home with them! If you want to make a lasting impression and treat your guests to something truly benevolent and filled with holiday spirit, favors fit the bill nicely.
The Finest, Most Festive Favors
Grinch Goodie Bags.
The Grinch traditionally gets a bad rap! He represents the worst of the holidays, but by the end of the movie, he’s all about them. Cellophane Grinch bags filled with candies will delight your guests and remind them not to be a party pooper.
Snowflake Cookie Boxes.
If you are truly motivated, bake holiday cookies and fill these cute snowflake cookie boxes with your delicious creations.
Fill tiny stocking with Hershey’s kisses, tootsie rolls, any type of candy or treat. They’re super cute and can double as a pet stocking for them if they desire!
What could bring a smile to your guest’s faces even more than discovering an egift card waiting for them in their email (or text messages) shortly after your party? They are quick, easy, and will be highly appreciated and enjoyed.
Gold Foil Snowflake Holiday Treat Bags.
Perfect for goodies like cookies or chocolate foil balls, easy to tote and reuse, too!
You’ll find the perfect ornaments in any dollar store, then simply paint or use a metallic pen to carefully personalize the bulbs with the person’s name and year or anything greeting you wish.
Glitter Snowflake Place Cards.
Let dinner guests know where they are to be seated – in style! With cool, soft blue tones and embellished silver sparkles, your table will be enchanting and personal.
Holiday Loaf Boxes.
Are you an expert at making delicious baked goods? Do you go all out and bake breads, pastries, cupcakes, anything sweet? Tuck a sampling away in a holiday loaf box and your guests will leave with warmth in their hearts.
Easily purchased in bulk or at any dollar store, you can opt for the battery operated kind or traditional wick. Spruce them up with paint or glitter pens for a delightfully peaceful and fun reminder of your get together.
Hand out green and red cozies to your guests so they can easily continue their festivities for the rest of the year.
Jingle Bell Ribbons.
A craft that only takes a short time to make. Pair three jingle bells with festive colored ribbon (gold, silver, red, green) and a chop stick and you have a ribbon dancer that they can use to ring in the new year!
A Poinsettia Plant.
Poinsettias are synonymous with the holidays, and your guests will no doubt find a prestigious place for this bold, beautiful flowering plant.
Making the Most of Your Holiday Party
You’ve got the favors covered, what about the party itself? You could choose to go completely traditional with holiday music, decorations, and lights galore. Or, you could choose to do things a little differently this year, and spruce things up!
Santa’s Workshop. Who says Halloween has the monopoly on dressing in costume? For the Santa’s Workshop party, ask guests to dress in an outfit they would wear at Santa’s Workshop. For example, they can choose to be Santa, Mrs. Claus, a reindeer, an elf, and if they’re feeling anti-establishment, they could dress up as Bumble, the Abominable Snow Monster of the North.Don Your Ugly Sweaters. Those sweaters have got to be put to good use sometime! Have a contest for the ugliest sweater, and hand out Santa hats and various themed headbands (antlers, elf ears, snowflakes, etc.) to make the evening even more interesting!Get Creative with a Hot Chocolate Bar. There’s barely a soul on earth who would turn down hot chocolate on a cold, winter day. Create a hot chocolate bar by starting things out with a festive selection of mugs (let guests take them home as favors) and a variety of different cocoa mixes, everything ranging from dark chocolate to milk and white chocolate gourmet flavors.
Try International Dishes. Because the USA is truly a melting pot of different ethnicities around the world, celebrate your guests and their heritage by asking them to contribute a holiday dish that is inspired by their culture. Or, delegate various dishes from around the world to your guests, and enjoy a uniquely international taste of the holidays.
Throwing a holiday celebration is a great way to bring people together for lasting memories and good times. Don’t let them go home empty handed, it’s easy to whip up charming favors so they remember the night and can easily continue the joyful spirit.
