This post was made possible through a partnership with Loacker. However, the thought behind the gift was all my own.
Earlier this week, I shared with you a recipe I served at the great Blog Cabin reveal. Today, I am going to share with you the unique party favors that each friend went home with after the party. First, let me say as my friend Emily says “I am Extra!” 😉 When I started planning this party in my head back in
August, take that back who I am kidding back when I first purchased the building, I knew I wanted to create a unique party favor for the event.
I spent months scouring thrift stores looking for one of a kind china teacups. I wanted to make sure that each guest had a different cup because they all have taken part in the journey of my blog. Some in significant ways and others in small ways but still they are a big part of what made this blog what it is today. You think finding teacups would be easy, but that wasn’t the case. I seriously had to keep looking for months to get enough cups.
After I got all the cups I needed, I thought about what I wanted to put in each one. And then I thought what goes better with tea than cookies. And by cookies, I made wafer cookies. I found these bite-sized wafers from Loacker. So in each teacup, I placed three of these wafers. Why three you ask? Because they come in three varieties, vanilla, chocolate, and hazelnut.
I wanted my guests to be able to experience all three of these. Plus they also reminded me of the cookies my dad always bought at the grocery store. I still have fond memories of those. These wafers are all natural and contain less sugar than the regular cookie.
I placed each teacup in a clear treat bag and tied it with yarn. It was such a simple gesture to thank everyone for coming, but that simple gesture went a long way. Everyone who received one said they felt so special to have received them and they couldn’t wait to go home and have tea or coffee with their wafers. Plus it was also a great place card for the pallet tables.
So you see folks simple gestures to let people know how much you appreciate them goes a long way. So tell me what simple gesture have you made today?
