Re: Birthday Party Favors

I don't like to give candy in goody bags because I don't like when DD comes home with a bunch of sweets. They just got sugared up at the party for goodness sake! For her princess themed party, we did small note pads with a fluffy/frilly pen and princess stickers.

For her luau themed party, I paid for grass skirts, leis and hair flowers for the girls. They also did a beach themed frame as a craft. I took a picture of each girl her in her outfit against a beachy background. We included each girls' picture to put in the frame with the thank you note for the birthday gift. So for all of that, no goodie bag.

I like to do them, but I don't feel obligated and I don't expect one.
