Let’s Have a Party – Party Favors

This weekend I had the honor of helping host a baby shower for my good friend, Liz.

{You may remember her from our cradat back in October}.  Liz is having baby #2 in August and we are thrilled for her and her family!
Now, the deets of this shower will come in a series of posts because I have a lot to share.

Today, let’s talk about party prep: favors!

I was cruising around Etsy one day and came across the most adorable little favor tags.

Favor Tags: Little Man Mustache & Tie Party Favor Tags - Baby Shower or Kids Birthday Party Decorations
[BabyBinkz]

I knew the theme was set the moment I laid eyes on them.  They are simply too cute for words.

Then, I found some adorable little favor bags too which sealed the deal.

Mustache Muslin Bags /  It's a Boy / Set of 10
[Little Chicklets]

Once I had the container and the tag, I just needed to figure out what to put in them.  This became the tough part because I didn’t want to get something I didn’t think anyone would actually want or use.

You know the say, “If you don’t know what to do with it, put a bird on it”.  Well, it became: “put a bird in it” for me!
I was at Party City one day and saw these adorable little owl candles

They were the perfect size and oh so cute.  I grabbed those and some little mints with baby feet on them and hit the check out line.
I put all the items in the little pouches and tied the favor tags to the top.

All set and ready to go!

Once at the party, I put a little pouch at each person’s seat.
