As we get closer to Halloween,
thoughts naturally turn to parties and gatherings.
I think the idea of a party favor is charming,
and it is a custom that goes back several centuries
in one mode or another.
Some of the earliest party favors were small bags of sugar--
which was very expensive--
or sugar coated almonds.
Following are some cute party favors I found on the web.
Aren't these little tissue paper pumpkins a cute idea?
These from The Bear Cottage blog
are filled with candy and small toys or rings:
Here are some transparent bags of popcorn
fixed up to look like friendly little ghosts:
I don't think you can ever go wrong with decorated sugar cookies
like these Halloween shapes from Cookies by Design in Fort Worth:
These orange and black boxes filled with candy corn
by Jean M. Stationery and Accessories blog
are simple and fun:
I found a web site called Homed It Interior Design and Architecture
that has 21 Halloween part favors and they are all cute.
Here is my favorite, a bat whose wings fold over a candy bar:
I'm not sure I like this one the best
because it's clever to have the wings fold over to close the package
or if I like it because there is a candy bar involved.
Either way, it would be delightful to leave the party with one.
