Consider building a Party Favor Bar and letting your guests create their own chocolate party favor based on their own particular tastes.
I absolutely love this idea! Your guests will be so pleased and, I suspect, will be drooling to get started. I know I would be.
Instead of settling on one particular type of chocolate party favor, you can provide a whole smorgasbord of choices for your guests.
It's simple - decide on the types of chocolate candy that you want to use for your chocolate candy party favor bar.
If you're in a rush and don't have time to order your chocolates online at one of those many terrific candy sellers, you can pop into your local grocer or Walmart and grab several bags of everyday chocolates. Make do with what you've got on hand. :)
Now, what are you going to use as chocolate party favor containers? You could select favor boxes or favor bags and make them available for each guest to fill with their favorite chocolate choices.
You will find different types and sizes of favor boxes and favor bags on Amazon. Seriously, though, if you plan far enough in advance, you can get much better prices for bulk favor bags and boxes using international sellers on eBay. I've found some amazing prices that way.
You can also get favor ribbons and other favor supplies from a variety of great suppliers. I love browsing through their stock.
Once you've chosen your chocolate candies and favor holders, now all you have to do is set up your favor bar. You can decorate a table to match your party theme or colors.
Place your candy in jars or bowls around the table with a large spoon or scoop in each one for easy access. If you have similar looking candy choices, like chocolate covered nuts and chocolate covered espresso beans, it would be a good idea to label the selections with small place cards.
Fan your boxes or bags in an attractive array for extra eye appeal. Depending on the amount of space available, you may want to scatter confetti, potpourri, or votive candles around the table for added color.
Your party guests are really going to love creating their own unique chocolate party favors. Keep an eye on them, though, because I bet they will be trying to sneak a few extras! :)
Go ahead and show off your creativity. We'd all love to see what you've done.
