Party favors are tiny but thoughtful trinkets that you offer to guests as special gifts to thank them for attending your affair. It will help them remember the special time that they spent celebrating at your Philly home. Here are three easy do-it-yourself party favor ideas to consider for your upcoming gathering.

A Special Ornament

Ornaments aren’t only for the holidays — they also look beautiful hanging in windows and on mirrors. Some people like to hang them over doorways. A custom-made ornament is the perfect party favor because it’s small and easy for your guests to carry home in a nice little box. It’s also easy to customize and decorate an ornament by using items that you can find at a local craft store. Start with a ceramic ball or glass ornament and use a glue pen and glitter to add decorative elements, like stars and hearts. Write a special “Thank You” message to your guest in script lettering. If this is a housewarming party to celebrate your new home in Philly, you might also add a decorative sticker to the ornament that brings attention to the city where you now reside, like a glittery Liberty Bell or the Philadelphia skyline. Finish by properly bow-tying a fancy ribbon to the top of each ornament and present each favor in a small clear box.

Decorative Crystal or Glass Vase

One gift idea that your guests can display and use at their own homes is a small crystal or glass vase or jar. Not only is this gift beautiful and decorative, it can also be used as a candy dish or flower holder. Apply monogrammed stickers with script designs and a red or green background to each vase. The monogram could be the guest’s initials or a recognizable abbreviation like “NYE” for a New Year’s Eve party. If you have an artistic flair, paint something interesting on the side of the vase. Tie a special ribbon at the top of the vase or jar for a finishing touch.

A Mini Painting as a Favor

If you really like to paint or know someone who does, a thoughtful party favor idea is a unique painting on a mini-canvas. Find small canvases the size of a standard photo or smaller at a local craft store and get to work. Paint happy and delightful scenes, like flower gardens, pets, and landscapes. Present each mini painting in a frame with a small bow at the corner. This is a way to express your creativity while giving your guests a party favor that shows how much thought and time you put into the gift.

A Special Thank You

When you give out party favors, they should be gifts that will always remind your guests of the special memories that you made together at your Philly home. Try one or more of these party favor ideas that are sure to be appreciated and treasured.
