I have been working on some new ideas for party favors – I love coming home from an event with something sweet. I know how popular candy buffets are now, but if you have a party coming up and you don’t want to commit to buying 50 pounds of candy and big glass containers, here are some cute ideas with sources for something your guests will definitely enjoy!
Striped Jelly Bean Tubes
I chose a 1.75″ x 4″ round plastic tube container for this one, but you can find many other sizes here if you want something larger or smaller. I layered Strawberry Daiquiri and Coconut jelly beans to make the stripes, counting even numbers of each color to make the stripes consistent. For this size container, there are about 28 jelly beans in each layer. You can purchase jelly beans by color here, and there are enough colors to match any party theme. I sealed the tube with a strip of washi tape, which I bought from In the Clear, one of my favorite etsy shops. Finally, I created a logo and printed out a sheet of 1.5″ round labels to decorate the tubes. I love OnlineLabels.com for favor labels, since they have a giant selection of sizes and paper types.
Square Gumball Boxes
For this favor, I used my absolute favorite kind of box – a 2″ x 2″ x 2″ square clear plastic tuck-top from Paper Mart. 8 big round gumballs fit perfectly in this size, and you can buy gumballs in a variety of colors and flavors here. I used black & white twill ribbon from Paper Source, but you could add any color or kind of ribbon you like. I sealed the top with a monogram label that I created using 1.5″ round labels from OnlineLabels.com.
