Most people underestimate the importance of favours which are a symbol of the appreciation and gratitude from hosts to their guests. Guests cherish and love favours as they create a unique bond with their hosts.
Susan RoAne, author of ‘How to Work a Room’ says that,
People can forgive a dish they don’t like, but if there isn’t warmth from the host, that’s a little less forgivable.
To make the special day stand out and be remembered, it is important to decide on a favour which can be kept as a special keepsake of the day.
According to Diane Warner, author of Big Book of Parties,
the secret to a successful party is, ‘not to be as concerned about being the quintessential hostess as you are about showing each guest you care from the moment they arrive until the last goodbye.
At most parties, favours are chocolates, sweets, bubbles, stickers, candles, lip balms, party hats, blowout and noise makers, containers, notepads and things that perish easily. Favours should be meaningful, practical and long lasting.
