Are you hosting a bridal shower for a family member or a friend? Possibly, you're the maid/matron of honor and have to plan and host the party along with all your other duties. It could get crazy for you unless you are organized right down to the decorations and bridal shower favors. Chances are you think don't have time to make a homemade bridal shower favor. Today, we all are just too busy in our day to day lives and making a party favor can take some time. Actually, you can do a homemade favor if you cheat just a little bit. Choosing an adorable favor bag that is already decorated will cut down the time it would take you to make a favor from scratch.
Some fantastic options for decorated favor bags or boxes included a pink plaid purse favor box, favor bags that come complete with assorted appliqués to place on the front, a cute "get away" car with a old time Hollywood feel to it, or to commemorate a special someone in the bride to be's life that may have battled breast cancer, choose a pink and white favor box with a pink ribbon on the front. Now that you have selected your favor box, what should you fill it with? The easiest thing to do is choose candies that complement the color or theme of the box. For pink, choose light pink jelly beans available in bulk from a local candy store. For the getaway car, how about dark chocolates or something equally sinful? M&M's, mints, and assorted gumballs are all available in a rainbow of colors. Have you decided that maybe you just don't want to fool with creating a handmade bridal shower favor? Today's ready to go favors are available in every theme, color, style, and price range imaginable. Many choose favors that are more practical to give to their guests.
A great practical favor for a bridal shower is Queen for the Day pedicure toe separators in a very feminine pink. It's absolutely adorable and what a great way to thank the guests that attended the bridal shower than with something they'll use at home. Sachet party favors for your guest's lingerie drawers are also practical yet really appreciated by the people you give them too. Most of us just don't think about sachets but when we open our lingerie drawers and get a whiff of lavender or other nice scent, we're grateful that the sachet is in there.
Personalized bridal shower favors are also great - especially if you are personalizing an item that will be dropped right into the purse or travel bag. Great options in this category are sun block, shower gel, hand cream or lip balm. For the more eco friendly, choose wildflower seed packets personalized with the happy couple's names. No waste plus your guests will enjoy a beautiful wildflower garden after the shower. No matter which favor you choose for the bridal shower, make it easy on you.
A favor doesn't have to be totally handmade to be heartfelt by your guests. Choosing a bridal shower favor that you love will ensure your guests love it too. Be sure to enjoy the party.
