I don’t know about you, but favors could quite possible be my favorite part of attending parties and gatherings. I will admit, I’m guilty of surveying the event location upon arrival in hopes of catching a glimpse as to what the host is giving their guests as a parting gift.
So when this whole act of giving parting gifts become thing?! After some research I found that it’s believed to have started hundreds of years ago as a way for the party hosts to share their gratitude and thanks to the guests for attending their event. Traditionally, one would give special boxes to party goers. “It is believed that the first wedding favor, common amongst European aristocrats, was known as a bonbonniere. A bonbonniere is a small trinket box made of crystal, porcelain, and/or precious stones.” (“Wikipedia”, 2016). As sugar being come cost effective, sugary treats become a popular choice of parting gifts.
Nowadays favors range from goodie bags filled with sweet treats (sometimes in the form of a candy table so you can make your own combination) to homemade jam. Head on over to our #Pinterest page to see my favorite favor ideas!
