Party Planning at its Best!
My super talented friend Brittany launched a party planning business One Charming Party. She has Bekah's Vintage Glam Barbie party posted on there among several amazing parties. She also has a blog with fun information on her mad entertaining skills. I recently asked her advice on some wedding favors and this is the scoop she gave me:
The four biggest trends that I've noticed in wedding favors are eco-friendly gifts/donations, cookies or other desserts, regional inspired and homemade jams.
I'm including some links for you to see what I mean. If this isn't what you are looking for then let me know and I can round up some more ideas for you. Hopefully this will get some ideas going though.
