1- Try to incorporate your favors into your party theme.
For example if you are having a Diamond Theme wedding, try favors with rhinestone accents.If you are having a Beach Theme celebration, try favors such as a tropical drink mixes. Inspired a Tiffany theme? Aqua blue and white with a touch of sparkle is perfect!
2- Mix and match your favor colors to coordinate with your color scheme for a stunning display. You will add an extra decor element to your tables without the extra cost.
Here’s one example – if your colors are pink, black and white, try ordering pink boxes with white bows and black rhinestone accents mixed with white boxes with pink bows and black rhinestone accents.Fill with alternating coordinating colored candies.
3- Your favors should be a reflection of you and should celebrate your personality. Select either colors you love, an activity you love or a city or place that holds special memories for you.
4- A general rule of thumb when counting the number of favors to order is: order one favor per single guest and one favor per couple attending your event. When incorporating our favor boxes into your table decor, we recommend one per place setting or one in between each couple’s place setting. Having a candy buffet? Please allow one bag per person.
5- If you are having children and adults attending your celebration, try ordering two types of age appropriate favors. Children will love candies, coloring book sets or a small activity to keep them occupied while the adults will prefer a gift such as a coaster sets or truffles.
6- When ordering a monogram on your favors the first initial of the first name is placed on the left, the first initial of the last name is placed in the middle, and the first initial of the middle name is placed on the right. For weddings, the brides first initial is placed on the left, the first initial of the new last name is placed in the center and the first initial of the grooms first name is placed on the left.
7- If you are ordering personalized favors always double and triple check your order for spelling errors to prevent your favors from being printed with the incorrect celebration date or name. A simple typo unchecked can create delays and unnecessary extra costs with the entire order.
9- Always make sure you order enough favors for your guests. It is better to over order than to place a an additional rush order later for additional pieces. Dye lots may differ and you will incur additional shipping charges and perhaps a rush fee.
10- Have left over favors from your celebration?
If you are giving edible favors, why not donate them to a charity or a food bank? Your clergy from your ceremony or wait staff from your reception would also appreciate token of your thanks. Extra favors are perfect to have on hand for future hostess gifts,last minute holiday gifts or welcome gifts.
