DIY Holiday Party Favors
29 Thursday Nov 2012
Two days prior our company consultant Holiday Party my boss wanted me to take over the planning and pull everything together (Yes, you heard right, I had two days to pick up everything and make sure it was a success). At this point we didn’t have any party favors; call me old fashioned but I wasn’t about to be a part of a Holiday Party that didn’t have Holiday Favors! That meant I had less than two days to put something together, Yikes!!!!
I decided to go with a winter holiday inspired gift that included a packet of Starbucks Gourmet Hot Cocoa paired with Gourmet Ghiradelli Chocolate and a Peppermint Candy Cane. Now doesn’t that sound like the perfect treat for a cozy winter evening? The best part about it was the total cost for each favor was only $2.18
I used two flavors of Starbucks Gourmet Hot Cocoa, just to give a little variety
The bag looks a little beat up but you can’t beat $9.99 for 50 pieces. Marshalls and TJ Maxx have a wide variety of gourmet food & candy this time of year and the prices are unbeatable!
Tell me that doesn’t look yummy!!
I placed the items on top of each other and tied them together with a little red and silver bow
I did two variations of favor bags one was Silver and Gold and the other was Red, Silver and White. Festive, right?
