Using Baby Shower Favors to Decorate:
Treat boxes, favor bags, and favors help make your baby shower a success not just as gifts for your guests, but because they are fantastic decorations as well! Guests will remember fondly the event long after they leave when they bring home a favor you've thoughtfully given them, but the visual memory of the event will be stronger from the amazingly professional way the favors can impact the look and feel of your shower.
Putting a small theme coordinated favor at each place setting gives your table-scape a polished look. With the right boxes, you can stack favors into centerpieces for the buffet tables. The ideas are endless - selecting the best favor for your event need not be challenging, or stressful - we're are here to help.
The History of Baby Shower Favors
The celebration of the birth of a new child dates back through history to times as early as ancient Egypt, and Rome. Historically, friends and family brought gifts to the mother and new child, often hand-made, to acknowledge this blessed event. As the celebrations of the baby have evolved into what we know today as a Baby Shower, new traditions have developed. One such tradition is the giving of a baby shower favor to a guest who attends the celebration. This tradition was practiced in Europe, and immigrants brought this tradition to the United States. As the modern baby shower started to really take its current shape after World War II, the practice of giving inexpensive or unique baby shower favors to guests grew.
Our Professional Shower Planner's Ideas:
Hosts today have a great many options when thinking about favors for a baby shower. Some of the most popular types of favors today are fun, funny, and/or practical. Candles, small practical (and fun) gifts, and edible treats or candies are some of the most often given items. Here's a couple ideas from the professional party designers here at PartyPail:
- Inexpensive Treats Make Great Favors!. 'Treat' your guests to a personalized, and unique favor with a home-made, or store bought cupcake, cookie, or selection of candy. Home made cookies, candy, brownies, and fudge are great because you can customize them in terms of flavors and colors to match the theme of your event. PartyPail stocks a number of baking accessories, candy, and related bags/boxes to help you wrap-up a wonderful reminder of the special day.
- Theme Based Favors Are Inexpensive, and Fun! PartyPail carries a wide variety of favors that match the theme you are using for your baby shower decorations. These favors include kitchen gadgets, candles, personal bath items, and more. Our product team has been working hard to find the best variety available, allowing you to find something that is absolutely perfect in design, and functionality. A great example of our theme based approach are our Sweet Pea In A Pod Baby Shower Favors which match our Sweet Pea / Peas in a Pod shower theme.
- Personalized Favors Make The Mom Feel Special! Who doesn't like to see their own name (or the name of their expected baby) integrated into the decor. We offer a variety of personalized tags and labels that you can use with our favor boxes and bags, plus many of our themed favors include free customization where you can add a personal message right on the favor itself.
What PartyPail's Customers Are Saying:
"Thank you so much for my previous shipment being shipped out so quickly and for the beautiful and inexpensive favors that match her theme. All of this is being done in memory of my grandma who will not get to meet her only son's only child which is a miracle after they told him he couldn't have a child. And, her favorite thing was angels and this theme fit perfectly, so thank you from the heart of my family and friends for all that you do in making a baby shower memorable."
