Bridal shower favors that are good enough to eat (literally!) deserve equally delicious packaging. So for a chocolate-themed party dressed up in the loveliest shades of lilac, the choice is clear. Chocolates and other goodies are to be presented in the prettiest favor containers echoing the lilac color scheme. Yummy filling ideas? Consider old favorites like chocolate coins, truffles, even chocolate chip cookies. Or offer something special like chocolate dipped biscotti or hot cocoa mix with marshmallows. Just don’t forget the pretty packaging!
Presentation is Everything! Even With Favors
To give as delectable favors in tune with the party’s theme, chocolate treats are definite winners. Give Hershey’s Kisses wrapped in purple foil and package them in dainty embroidered favor bags tied with lilac bows. As a prelude to the party’s theme, use these sachets to greet arriving guests as they are directed to their tables or lay them at each place setting. Alternatively, display them in beribboned hand baskets and give one to each guest as the shower draws to a close.
Present woven sinamay boxes filled with chocolates as part of the lilac-themed shower decor-to be taken home afterwards as delightful favors. To present them as gifts, adorn each box with a chocolate brown satin ribbon or a length of raffia twine with a sprig of lavender held in the knot, or dress it up in a 17″ fabric wrap of lilac organza. Attach a tag with a saying like “chocolates bring many sweet smiles from the heart,” an inspirational quote inspired by chocolates, or a thank-you message from the bride.
Along with the guest favors, prepare gift boxes brimming with an assortment of treats as a gesture of thanks to the mothers of the bride and groom. When looking for something special, items that fit the theme work great and don’t necessarily have to break the bank. The key is creativity and an eye for the practical. For example, a silver heart-shaped box containing candies can be used as a jewelry box later, a decorative bag filled with chocolates can brighten up anyone’s day, or a colorful lilac sachet can be filled with fragrant bath beads. Enclose an accompanying card or a special note of thanks for a nice personal touch.
Say Thank You With Favors Packaged in Style
Once again, presentation is everything! So for a chocolate-inspired bridal shower, send guests off with warm memories of the occasion in the form of favors packaged with care and style. Whether the favors are chocolate candies, cookies, or other edible treats, present them in sachets, pouches, or boxes just so charming and well-crafted that they make delightful keepsakes themselves.
