Bridal Shower Favor Ideas
While a tradition in some communities, favors are unknown in others. Here are some bridal shower favor ideas, but note that favors are optional – Place Card Frames, Almond Jewels Favor Kit, Small plants (wrap fabric around the pot), Decorative Favor Soaps, Personalized Box of Mints, Disposable Wedding Cameras, Themed Cookie Cutters, Manicure Set.
For example, you could give each guest a homemade cinnamon roll wrapped in decorative cellophane and tied with colorful ribbon — homemade sugar cookies (bell or heart shapes) decorated with icing or colored sugar. Coordinate the favor along with a theme, if applicable. Or you could make your own wine charms (the type used to distinguish which glass of wine belongs to you). Purchase small silver or gold loops that close at the top from a craft or jewelry supply store, along with different colored beads and little charms of various types. Assemble each charm so that it is different from the other, so that guests will remember which drink is theirs. You can also make your guests their own set of 4 – 6 charms or purchase them already made for about $20 per set.
Bath oil beads, small flower or heart shaped soaps wrapped in tulle and tied with ribbon.
Take a block of colored candle wax and melt down using a double burner. Add potpourri and mix well. Pour into a heart-shaped mold mold and place an 8 – 10 inch piece of thin ribbon near top of heart before wax starts to dry. Remove hearts from molds and tie ribbon at top to create a beautifully scented ornament that can be placed around your door handle or on a Christmas tree.
Make your own gel candles. Buy gel and materials from a craft shop, pour gel into small votives, martini, wine or champagnes glasses (do not use plastic) and add sand and sea shells or other small decorative items that are not flammable. Add a personalized favor tag or use as a table decoration. Gel candles burn a lot longer and there is no messy wax to ruin table cloths.
Other popular favors still include wedding bubbles and wedding bell favors, placecards frames, the pewter placecard holder chairs are a favorite and now they have come out with placecard holder shoes, sofas and even little cars. Other useful items include bottle openers, the new “perfect pair” pear-shaped silver salt and pepper shakers, mini wedding cake candles …also the silver ice cream scoops.
