Hello, Event Blossomers! Our team is always bursting at the seams with things we would all love to share with you from creative favor ideas to big news like the arrival of new products. Now, we have a place to share them! So let’s get started, shall we?
Traditionally, favors were given mainly at weddings as a gesture of gratitude. The old favorite? Jordan almonds — usually wrapped in tulle and tied with a ribbon. There’s even a little poem that goes with them:
Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat
to remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
Five wishes for the new husband and wife —
Health, wealth, happiness, children, and long life!
So not only were favors a nice way for a bride and groom to say “thank you” to their wedding guests, but they also had a place in wedding lore right along with “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” Nowadays, favors are given at a variety of events and for a variety of reasons. Personally, I think it’s great! And no, not just because we sell favors…
I spotted a quote during a Hallmark commercial the other day:
“Life is a special occasion.”
I couldn’t have said it better. Who says that you can’t throw a party “just because?” I say that you should celebrate whatever and whenever you feel moved to do so: passing a big exam, moving into your first home, or even simply because it’s the end of a long workweek. Throw a party for family members, for new friends, for old friends, or even for your beloved pet! There are no momentous events too big or too small for a celebration. And if you just so happen to be in need of favors, well you know that Event Blossom always has your back.
