A garden party is not only held to celebrate a birthday party, but also special occasions like graduation, an engagement, and even wedding receptions. It is actually one of the best ways of celebrating a special occasion amidst the beauty of nature. The main factors that make the garden party a fun-filled and memorable one are the food, drinks, and music. A great way to leave a good impression on a guest, while also having them remember the special occasion for a long time to come, is by giving them a parting favor. Let's take a look at some cool party favor ideas for your fast-approaching garden party.
Party Favor Suggestions for a Garden Party
Flowering plants like roses, lilies, chrysanthemums, daisies, orchids, or sunflowers, make great options for a parting gift. You know that with adequate care and attention, the plants will survive for a long time to come, especially herb-based plants, like rosemary, chives, parsley, basil, or mint. If the buying an entire set of plants is not exactly in tune with your budget, a lovely gift bag with a packet of the seeds instead, and a little instructional booklet on how to care for the seedlings, will make a good alternative.
Scented candles aren't all that expensive if you buy the mini variety kind, in bulk. If you have time on your hands, you can make them at home, instead; it's a simple recipe of melting wax and adding aromatic oils, which you can easily do in your spare time. You could also buy little containers to pour the candles in, attaching a little note on how you hope that it brings the guest a brighter, calmer tomorrow.
Homemade Beauty Products
It's a cinch to prepare a beauty product at home, trust me. Lip balms and sugar scrubs can be prepared from scratch, using easy-to-find ingredients and household additives that will prove to be the best kind of gift to give as a party favor. Make two batches―his and hers―so that it comes off as an extremely thoughtful gesture; the ingredients will of course be the same, except for the blue and pink packaging that will set the two apart.
This is the simplest party favor idea from the lot; buy a bunch of flowers or pluck them from your own garden, leaving only the petals on a sheet of newspaper to dry out in the sun. Once they turn crisp, gently drizzle the entire lot with an essential oil or dried fruit peels to the mix. The fruit peels can be left out in the sun with the petals, resulting in a heartwarming blend of nature's best aromas. Tie the pouches with satin ribbon and attach a little thank-you note.
