Deck the Halls with Favors

I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful moments of this winter season with friends and family.   As I'm sipping on a hot cup of peppermint mocha, I'm admiring the detailed ornaments and memories that are reflected from my tall spruce tree.  This year I've designed a San Francisco themed tree by using the extra favors from my own wedding as ornaments.  What a great way to be creative and celebrate two wonderful occasions!

Both the holidays and weddings are a time to celebrate and to give thanks for the people and moments in their life.  Wedding favors are incorporated in a couple's big day as a way to give thanks and show their gratitude to their guests.  Traditionally favors include a mini box of confectionery treats and it's always nice to conclude a celebration with something sweet.  Or another idea to is to make the favors more interactive such as having a colorful candy or dessert buffet displayed at the reception.  Favors have now evolved to various mini keepsakes and even handmade crafts that reflects the couple.  Favors also add a touch of color to the dinner tabletops, sign-in table, and even for your holiday tree.  Also don't forget the creative final touches and personalization in packaging your gifts from mini colorful boxes to fun size jars with monogramed seals and frilly ribbons.
