Engagement Party favors

Ah our first wedding related party! 62 people showed up Saturday night and I felt so overwhelmed - I didn't have enough time to chat with guests. Oh wells, it was fun and I just wanted to show off a little bit. I know favors aren't normal at engagement parties, but I made these simple ones anyway:









I only made 10 of these to put around the tables, so I played around with a few sign designs (PIB). Very simple and cost effective - got the vases at a Japanese discount store called Daiso (there are a few Bay Area locations) for $1.50 each, two bags of M&Ms for $2 (bought the day after Valentine's day), and three bags of Charms heart shaped lollipops for $7. I decided to go with M&Ms because they're cheaper than rocks and sturdy enough to hold the lollipops.




The signs are doubled sided - one side says 'From the Heart' (I'm not normally that sentimental, I thought it'd be corny since they were heart shaped lollipops) and the other side said 'Thank You'. Just a wooden meat skewer and double sided tape holds it together!




Ok, I'm done now. :)
