Here we are, on the cusp of the 2011 holiday season, and you can almost feel the excitement! So what are you hosting between now and New Year’s Day—a wedding? Bridal shower? Dinner party? Baby shower? Halloween party? Girls’ night out? Thanksgiving dinner? Christmas Eve or Christmas Day party? Chanukah party? Kwanzaa party? New Year’s Eve party? New Year’s Day brunch? See what I mean? Do you have any idea how many favors would love to get out and do their stuff for you?
I’m talking about lifting your parties to a whole, new level! Guests love little surprises. I know I do! We’ll start with favors for fall holidays and events. Later on, I’ll show you my top favor choices for Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas parties and New Year’s celebrations. First, you’ll see my Kate Aspen favorites for this time of year, and only you can decide if a favor fits your event. Feast your eyes on these little, autumn-themed extras!
Is it possible that all the coolest holidays arrive in the winter to lift our spirits at a time when the weather often gets us down? For me, it doesn’t matter! I love winter, and you have a special selection of season-saluting favors to dress up your holiday décor and demonstrate your skills as a host.
My top pick for Thanksgiving dinners? The “Turning Leaves” Bookmark with its elegant burgundy-silk tassel! The leaf truly represents the harvest season, which is what the holiday celebrates, and this gift of thanks encourages everyone, young and old, to enrich their minds and souls with reading.
For Christmas events, the “Snow Flurry” Glass Ornament Place Card/Photo Holder has my vote. You have the choice of using this fantastic, flocked favor as a place card holder or to display a meaningful photo; when your guests take them home, they also have a photo holder—when they’re not using it as an ornament on their tree!
Winding up the year with a wedding or a party? My choice is “It’s About Time! Let’s Celebrate!” Champagne Bucket Timer—perfect for counting down to midnight!
Happy Holidays—and Happy Planning!
