Whether it’s a wedding reception or a party you’re stressing about, don’t! Get the snacks, entertainment and seating ready – we’ve got the party favours sorted. Show your appreciation for your guests with homemade favours that they’ll love!
Favours for foodies
We don’t know about you, but we automatically feel at home around good conversation and snacks. Something sweet, spicy and flavourful is a great alternative to little trinkets that get lost as soon as you leave the party. These however have a slim chance of making it to the car without a nibble or two.
Caramel apple in a jar
Perfect for grown-ups and kids alike, the caramel apple in a jar is a fun take-home present. Best of all: this favour can be made IN the jar! Melt the caramels inside the jar and dip the apple, making sure it is evenly coated. Then dip it in the little chocolatey sweets. Easy as pie!
