Homemade Baby Shower Favors - Ideas for Making Your Own Party Favors
Are you seeking inspiration and ideas for homemade baby shower favors?
When throwing a baby shower, it's so important to remember guest favors. These small trinkets show appreciation for attending and participating in the party. They also give each attendee something to remember about the event.
Favors can be bought in bulk from party stores and craft shops, but you can kick your favors up a notch by picking up some supplies and putting something unique together on your own. Homemade baby shower favors are more personal and easy to customize for any type of shower.
The key to a good homemade favor is to decide on something that you're capable of doing and that you will have time to complete. If you've never learned how to knit, making pink and blue dish-cloths for thirty guests in six weeks probably isn't the route to go.
If you've got a bit of time on your hands, you could do some more challenging crafts, such as making soap or candles. They require a small investment in things like wax or glycerine, as well as fragrance kits, but once you learn and start this, the expenses are minimal.
You can also look up fragrance recipes online, which will allow you to use natural things you may already have in your home or garden to create scent oils for your soaps or candles. Soaps can be molded into baby-theme shapes, or cut into squares and simply dyed a soft pastel color. Wrap in cellophane or mesh and tie off with a curling ribbon.
Candles can be given as they are or placed in small, inexpensive candle holders. You could then put a custom sticker with the baby's name or the date of the shower on the holder. Simple as that, you've got a gift - nice homemade baby shower favors.
There are other handmade items that you can give as homemade baby shower favors to express gratitude at a shower. Some simple research using the world wide web will lead you to a variety of projects, such as folded baby washcloth bunnies, bouquets of roses made with baby socks, and other basic projects. These are a great choice because they can be put together in a matter of minutes. So, if you're in a time crunch, this might be the way to go. The possibilities are endless.
The third, and possibly most common, homemade baby shower favor idea is anything edible. Before the party, take some time and make some cream cheese mints in pastel blue, yellow, pink, and green. Wrap them up by the handful in clear cellophane and tie with a ribbon, and be sure to include a tag giving the date of the party and a line like, "It's a baby shower".
Another idea for edible homemade baby shower favors could be cupcakes in the shape of rubber duckies or baby carriages. You could even make several kinds of cookies and other baked goodies, such as bon-bons, peanut butter cups, rice cereal treats, etc, and put them into a small tin or box for each guest. You can go as elegant or as simple as you'd like.
No matter what type of favor you choose to make, be sure to have fun. Don't pressure yourself too much to make them perfect - they are, after all, only favors. Enjoy yourself and relax; who knows, you could be finding your newest hobby or business opportunity! Good luck!
