#MuseMonday : Fun Favor Ideas

I sat around for most of the evening preparing favors for my guests at an upcoming party. I collected all my favorite Asian snacks and treats from childhood including Pocky sticks, cute little stick crackers dipped in such delectable things as chocolate, strawberry and even savory salad dressing flavors. I attached cute little cards to them and they’ll double as place cards. 

Here are some other great favor ideas.

Monogram bud vases look lovely with a small bud.

You can get them personalized too!

Three DIYs for Holiday Decorating

With Thanksgiving and shopping season right around the corner, there’s nothing to get you into the holiday spirit like a little home decor – especially if it’s homemade. Here are three that I’m loving at the moment.

I just stumbled across this wreath and it looks too frilly and sweet to pass up. Thanks to Bon Temps Beignet for this very do-able DIY.


Do you love the expensive look of large, metal zinc letters? Achieve the same gifts with some paper macher letters and some metallic paint! See the full instructions at 346 Living. Pop them over the living mantle or hand out monograms to your friends as favors. So simple and inexpensive!

 

Are you having people over for dinner and feeling a little shy in the decor and objects department? Don’t fret! Here’s a fabulous recipe for luxurious looking enamel glass from Sugar and Charm. Groyup small vases together in varying sizes and pair with a contrasting color object like piles of fruit.

These also make wonderful housewarming or hostess gifts. You never have to show up empty handed! Happy Friday and crafting this weekend! xo

 

Thanksgiving Entertaining Like a Pro : Four No-Fail Tips

Place things out for your guests to explore. That makes them feel comfortable and more apt to mingle. Chips and dip or a self-serve bar are easy to do on a tray. West Elm, lacquer tray, $32 Beer flight, personalization available, $49

Make things in advance and wrap them in the bowls they’re going to reheat in. Ovenware products like Le Creuset go from fridge to oven and serve mismatch beautifully.

Easier than keeping flowers alive and pretty enough to eat, place pumpkins or other hearty fruits and vegetables that can double as centerpieces, and later be used for tasty dishes. Pumpkins via The Party Dress

If you’re having more than a handful of people over, doing a seating chart can really help the conversation flow of the evening. You’ll be able to relax more, knowing that your shy cousin isn’t getting bowled over by a boisterous coworker.

See the full instructions here.
