NWR: Baby Shower favors

So I'm planning my sister's baby shower which is scheduled for late August.


So I'm torn on what to do for favors.  I'm between edible favors - like candy in a organza bags, or in small bottles.  But I'm also thinking of putting a small lotion and lip balm in little pink organza bags...


So I m planning photo 49823-1


So I m planning photo 49823-2


So what do you guys think is better?  edible/candy favors??  or the lotion and lip balm?  Which would you prefer if you went to a baby shower?

The scent of the lotion is sugar and spice!  "SUGAR AND SPICE (light vanilla scent with a hint of cinnamon"

My mom planned a baby shower for one of her friends last month. She bough tootsie pops and covered them with blue tulle since her friend was having a boy and attached a little tag that said "Look who's ready to pop."

Jackie, I originally wanted the centerpiece and candy favor combo:

http://www.wanderfuls.com/

But they require a minimum of 40 favors, and I'm only having 25 people at my sister's baby shower.

I think I'm leaning towards the lotion and lip balm now....

Chic, that's really cute, I think I saw that somewhere....

This is where I found the lip balms:

This is where I found the lotions - you have to scroll down to get to the lotion:


http://www.babybingo.com/favor_salt-lotion.html#sweet


 


But shop around because they're at a lot of sites for different prices.  If you find anything lower than these, let me know!

You could DIY wanderfuls, if you have time. Just buy spice tubes and fill them. Then hot glue crepe paper flowers to the top or something...

Do what evers cheaper haha


With some games and prizes, it will make up for any 'loss' in the favors, you know? Actually I just went to a baby shower last weekend and  we didn't even get favors- but we all got candy pretty much from playinga  game they had there!


ohh you have to make her a diaper cake- we brought her one and it was a huge hit and display piece :)  http://www.diapercakewalk.com/catalog.php?category=1 Have you ever seen one before? You can make it to fit the theme, colors, hide gifts inside, decorate with them outside- super fun!


- HMM :)

thanks everyone!


Champ, I thought of making the centerpiece favor combo thingy but I am SO NOT crafty.  Might turn out to look like quite a mess!  But I'm going to check out those website to see if there are "crafting for dummies" instructions. hahaha


HMM, d1rty told me about these diaper cakes and I think its great!  It's a gift that becomes part of the decor!  The link to that online store says they're closed tho!  But I'm sure I can find another one....

d1rty, I'm not crafty....in fact, I'm 'creatively challenged'.  You really think I can do it??  You'll have to give me step-by-step instructions.  And by 'step-by-step' I mean, second by second, move by move...where in the end it was easier to just have made it for me. ha!

i'll take pics of mine as i do it - will that help??


if you like it - i'll make your sister's if you want - just tell me or mail to me what "goodies" you want included in the cake - (special bottles with disney character versus plain, or colored ones, onesies, bibs, baby powder etc...)

Pics would be great! 


You're so sweet d1rty!  But I would feel awful to have you make mine....I should at least make an attempt first!  If it turns out to be a complete disaster, then I'll revisit the idea! ;o)
