It is a nice idea to give kids their own favors at a wedding. It will make them feel special and will help keep them busy during a long reception. These orange buckets are filled with miniature crayons, modeling clay, bubbles, playing cards and a slinky. Underneath is a blank notebook for coloring, games, etc. I gave similar gifts to all of the nieces and nephews on both sides at our wedding reception and I remember seeing them playing together all night. It is an easy way for kids of all ages to connect and have fun even when they might not know each other.

I made these favors for a teens shopping themed birthday party. I filled them with a candy lipstick, necklace, and a lip gloss in the shape of a high heel! They would be just as cute for a wedding shower favor or to hold your bridesmaids gifts. The design of the purse can be personalized to compliment the colors of your wedding or party.

Don't forget about the littlest members at your wedding reception. I used white butcher paper for a tablecloth that the kids can decorate with crayons, stamps, and stickers. I used a rubber stamp right on the paper tablecloth as the place card. This fun centerpiece with snacks and crafts will keep little ones busy and happy during a long reception.

This out of town basket was filled with yellow and white jelly beans, melt in your mouth lemon cookies and a bottle of water. The yellow and blue color and sweet treats inside made this a simple and elegant way to welcome guests to a summer wedding. The lemon theme is a nod to the couple whose last name is "Meyer."
