Say It With Chocolate!

When throwing a big event, you should always "thank" your guests for sharing your special day with you. One way to show your token of appreciation is by handing out favors. Often times, not a lot of thought is put into the actual favors and guests will leave them on the tables or throw them away once they get home. Favors can end up being a very costly part of your budget, and if your guests fail to take them home, you feel like your money was wasted. For this reason alone, you want to be unique and give your guests something they will appreciate and not leave on the tables at the end of the night.

What better way to do this, than with chocolate? Everybody loves chocolate, right? Handing out "edible" favors (as in something your greedy guests can eat, lol!) will ensure that there won't be any left over. Chocolate sucker favors are unique and a "sweet" way to thank your guests. They can be made to match any theme and color scheme. For the past couple of nights, I have been making some chocolate sucker baby shower favors for one of my co-workers. Her son and his girlfriend are expecting a baby boy. I used to make these cute little edible favors on the side for a little extra "mula". Notice I said "used to" because it has truly been a while since I have made these. I believe the last time was a few years ago for this same co-worker. Anywho, here are the ones I recently made:

Pictured above are Diapers, Bottles, Pacifiers, and of course "It's A Boy" birth announcement. These can be made for any themed party or event: Weddings, Bridal Showers, Bachelorette/Bachelor Parties, Birthdays, Graduations, etc, etc. Hopefully she likes them.
