Sizzling Party Favors and Giveaway!

Now that Summer is just about here, you can start planning that patio party or backyard BBQ. There is just something relaxing about a Summertime get together that I cannot resist! Perhaps it is the clear skies, the relaxed atmosphere, or the cold cocktails…….yeah most likely that last one. Regardless of why you enjoy a summer shin dig- I found these adorable summertime party favors and just love them!

These favors are a perfect summer touch for your next party! Loving these mini barbecue place card holders. You could also use them as a way to label your dishes at the next potluck you have, they’d look adorable on any picnic table! Fill them with candy or tealights. Be sure to add a personal touch and wrap your water bottles in these personalized labels. You could even order generic personalization (like your last name or “Summer 2009”) to keep the on hand for your next impromptu party. Oh and check out these crab wine bottle holders and personalized hot sauces, these are my favorite summer favor ideas yet!

Have fun with party favors! They are not just for baby showers and weddings- thank your guests for coming to your next Summer party! Start planning, because Favor Affair is generously giving one reader a $50.00 gift certificate to their fabulous site http://www.favoraffair.com/, how awesome is that?!
