One thing that I love about this time of year, is all the holiday items on clearance that you can use as party favors. You can easily find items that will work for New Year's Eve and beyond for many different types parties. (think bowl games, and Oscars too)
At Target, I found these pink and gold polka dot pails at Target for only 50 cents each. I thought they screamed party to me. I also found a gold charger for about $1. Gold seemed perfect for a New Year's Eve celebration,and looked really pretty with the pails. The pails are also the perfect size to serve Pop Works & Company popcorn.
I want to tell you about Pop Works & Company. They are launching a line of ready-to-eat
popcorn providing hosts and gift givers an unique and novel twist to a traditional party favorite. They start with light and airy popcorn, add sweet glazes, and drizzles and sprinkle bits of sweet treats over the top resulting in three delicious flavors, Cookies and Cream, Salted Caramel & Fudge and Birthday Cake. It is sold exclusively online, and you can choose one of your favorite flavors or "Build a Box" by mixing and matching all three flavors.
Pop Works & Company is offering an introductory price of $15.99 on its Pop Box, a colorful and versatile box which can be filled with 3 different popcorn flavors. They are also offering free 2 Day Shipping through New Year's Eve.
A fun and easy party favor that is great for New Year's Eve, 4th of July, or pretty much any party setting is a confetti cracker. I found the gold and silver paper on clearance at the dollar store, and the gold and silver ribbon on clearance at Target. To make a confetti cracker, cut a small cardboard tube in half. I found the tube easier to work with when I placed a small piece of tape on the back side holding the two halves together. Fill the tube with confetti, or if you prefer less mess, candy or small trinkets. Wrap the tube in a piece of wrapping paper so that it looks like a piece of candy, and tie ribbons on both ends. When it is time to for confetti, you can either pull the cracker apart by pulling both ends or breaking the tube in half. This paper was a little bit thicker, so it was easiest to break in half. I think they look pretty on the charger, and on the party table.
Another easy favor that I found on clearance were these journals in the same colors as the pails. I thought they would be perfect for Resolution Journals. Give one to each of your guests to write down their New Year Resolutions
