Hosting a Dinner Party: Favor Ideas

So what can you give your guests that will make them fondly remember the lovely party you threw for them (and, of course, to thank them for coming and let them know how cool you think they are)? I've compiled some of my favorite ideas...

Food to go (who wouldn't want round two the next day)?

1 / 2 / 3

Of course I focused on desserts (my favorite food group), but a box like the one for the pie would be great just to send any and all leftovers away with people.

Something Pretty (plants, flowers and the like in a jar, vase, mug, etc.):

(Decor turned favors... these are just baby food jars dipped in paint - so cute!)

(Again, love the monogrammed mug idea.)

1 / 2 / 3

Cool foodie things:

Some kind of fun/fancy salt, seasoning, baking ingredient, etc. Katie and Henry made each person in my family homemade vanilla extract in a fancy bottle at Christmas, and it was the coolest thing ever!

Love these Penguin Great Food books.

Think this "you rock" favor box is the coolest! It would be fun to put a mixed CD of your party jams in there.

Place setting turned adorable favor!

May the odds be ever in your FAVOR!
