Party Favor Inspiration

I'll be hosting my second baby shower in my new home next month and I'm trying to find ideas on something I can make on the cheap as party favors for the guests. I stumbled upon these cuties. Whattaya think?
They are coffee cozies but with the weather being so frigid here in the south I'm thinking more along the lines of hot cocoa cozies! Yeah? I'm thinking I could buy some cute fat quarters at Wally World and I already have TONS of buttons. Wanna learn how to make your own coffee/hot chocolate/to-go cup cozy? Jump over to Sweet Pea and Pumpkins to see the full tutorial!

Next I came across these key fobs. Just like the coffee cozies, they are all over blogville but this tutorial made them look so easy.

For the tutorial click here or visit CraftSanity.

For my sister's shower I made a fabulous homemade vanilla brown sugar body scrub. Found the recipe over at Under the Table and Dreaming. Let me tell you, this was such a hit! I could always make these again.

Then of course there are edible favors. Check out this amazing (and simple!) recipe for Rock Candy over at Creative Juices for Decor.

Cocoa Krispies (which fit right into my blue and brown colors!!) over at Creative Mommas which looked ah-mazing at the shower she put together!

So there's as few of the ideas I'm toyin' with right now. I'll keep looking around but what do you think? Practical vs Edible???


  1. What great ideas! i like the idea of party favors that aren't food. I made aprons for party favors for my son's birthday, the kids decorated their own cookis and took these home insted of a goody bag of candy.

  2. They rice crispy lolipops were super easy and super inexpensive :) Thanks for the linkup and good luck with your next baby shower.


I'd love to hear your feedback!
