Party favors, centerpieces, place holders…decor & gifts all in one!

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m all about the party favors, or “my bags” as Emily [Burning River Bride] calls them. I think I even had my favors picked out before my venue, photographer and wedding coordinator. For some reason, finding and discovering fun favor ideas is so relaxing to me, almost therapeutic. Well, the further I get into wedding planning, the elaborate, expensive favors I once thought I couldn’t live without are proving to be way out of my financial grasp.  So instead of scrapping the favor idea [and the hours and hours of time I spent searching them] I’m finding fun ways to make them more versatile, that way, getting a bit more bang for the buck. Check out a few of my favorite favors that “moonlight” as something else!
