Inexpensive Party Favors That Wow!


Beverage To-Go Cup with added bling, chocolate spoon and Little Debbie Cakes

Greetings to my loyal blog readers!  I haven't blogged much for the past six months. But I intend to make up for that now.  I never want to post something just to post something.  I want to share things with you that have helped me and may help you as well.  My desire is for you to anticipate that you are going to see something DELIGHTFUL when you open your subscribed email from me.  I endeavor to not waste your time.  To that end, here are the party favors that I made for our annual Valentines Tea for 30 held in my home each year for the leadership of the CBS Bible Study I attend.  It really is fun to do every year.  I'm sure it is because I have the capable assistance of five dear friends!


It is not quite finished yet, but close!

These darling and delicious little heart cakes come in five packages of two for $1.99!! 
I found mine at CVS.



Once the bows were tied, I added the finishing touch of a glittered  and mock-jeweled stick-on heart.

The chocolate spoons were made by melting a large bag of chocolate chips and dipping the spoons in them and positioning them on parchment lined cookie sheets.  I then refrigerated them until they hardened.  I then wrapped them in small plastic treat bags seen below.


I tied the chocolate spoons shut with a glistening silver bow that coordinated with the bling wrapped and glued on top and bottom of the red rubber holding material.  All the items were inserted into the large cellophane bag and tied with decorative ribbon. 


The beverage to-go cups were found at the Dollar Tree and come in a large variety of colors. I have seen them at Michael's and elsewhere for $6.99+.  You could embellish these cups for any party or holiday gathering.  Simply change the bows and treat and you will receive the same Oohs, Ahhs, and Wows that I received! 


Lined up to give to our guests as they leave.  I believe it was a delightful day!

Thank you Yvonne! They did. They are using them and still talking about them. I just loved your blog entry re: The 10 Tips of White Dishes! I so agree with you. My everyday pattern is a white Mikasa pattern too. Hope you are getting better every day!
