Faviana’s Guide to D.I.Y. Party Favors

Party favors are a great way to show your gratitude toward your loved ones who have helped and supported you throughout your entire wedding process! This is your opportunity to get crafty and creative and make some cute, affordable favors that your friends and family will adore. Making your own D.I.Y. favors is a heartfelt way to show your appreciation toward your friends and family.

When choosing a favor, I would suggest giving a gift that is practical. Don’t waste your time and money giving a junky gift that is going to end up “tchotchke-ing” up his or her home. Here is Faviana’s guide to D.I.Y. party favors to help you create easy and cute gifts for all of your guests!



Wedding Gawker

Succulents are a cute and trendy little gift that your guests will obsess over! They can go anywhere in the house and are an adorable addition to any room. They can also double as name holders, making them the perfect table decoration.

All you have to do it buy the succulents at your local florist, put them in cute little jars, and tie a bow and tag around it. Your friends and family will love to watch them grow into a beautiful plant.

You don’t have to worry about giving your guests another chore – these little plants are low-maintenance and very easy to take care of! All they have to do is put it in a sunny area and water it once a week.

Homemade Soap

These beautiful, delicate soaps are a very practical and classy party favor. They smell amazing, and are also a gorgeous decoration for your guests’ bathroom!

Not only are homemade soaps beautiful and unique, but they also give you healthier and clearer skin because they are made of natural ingredients and are rich in antioxidants.

The recipe is a little timely; however, the end result is so worth it! You have the ability to choose the ingredients, scent, and color! Try adding some of your old dried up flowers to make them look even more beautiful and expensive!
