Hello Party Moms,
As a professional event planner, I am continuously faced with the challenge of constructing the “Perfect Party Favor” on a limited budget. In my business, I offer this little party perk as a specific package upgrade, to include no more than 3 spa or beauty themed favor items at a very affordable price. Now, the dilemma…creating the prettiest, most useful, budget friendly favor possible! Here’s what a favor might look like inside:
The heart and cupcake wallets were such a big hit with the girls! They were made by Expressions and were covered in layers of glittery material. There were slots to insert a school ID or gift card and the money slot zipped close for added security. I chose to add these because the girls were all between 8-10 years old. I thought they’d definitely get some use out of them, as they are of age to start carrying a few dollars in their pockets! (…whether it be allowance money or birthday savings.)
I also included these full-sized nail polishes from L.A. Colors in the shade 514. I chose this pretty pink shade for this particular spa party because I felt this color would be age appropriate for all who attended. Lastly, I included a full size coconut-scented lip gloss roller. The color was clear, but it had a touch of fine glitter in it to give the girls lips, just a hint of sparkle! These lip glosses were sold in packs of two. Score! So it helped me save a couple dollars by giving each girl one lip gloss stick each.
Event Planner Party Tip: Don’t be fooled, favors do not always need to be big or elaborate! A great favor to me, is something that guests will actually keep or use later on, that will remind them of the fun they had at your event!
Both the wallets and the lip gloss rollers were purchased from Party City and the nail polish from Dollar Tree.
Overall I thought I definitely nailed the challenge of keeping to the budget and providing the girls with memorable and useful take-home party favors. Here’s a pic of how the boxes were finished off, a cute favor label, and a lovely lavender bow and we were good to go!
Let me know your guys spa favors ideas, I’d love to hear what you would’ve chosen to include!
Until next time,
