Garden Party Favor Bags

According to Grace, there are 2 vital parts to any birthday party. 

The first is the cake.  The second is the party favor bag.  We take our sweets and treats seriously around here.


These garden party favor bags were made using plain brown paper bags.  I used 3 layers of tissue paper and some double sided tape for the fringed 'grass'.  And, a Hawaiian lei was sacrificed so I could hot glue a flower to the bag as well.


Each goodie bag was filled with a flower pot, a packet of wildflower seeds and a flower ring pop.  And, each guest went home with their own garden apron made out of vintage floral fabric.  


Though I liked how the garden party favor bags turned out, they seem more fitting for a Hawaiian Luau.


Luau or garden party favor bags, 14 little girls left happy...though, we technically didn't serve cake {shameful, right?}.

  1. No shame in these bags, they're precious! I'm catching up on all my weekend blog reading- sorry I'm late!! I'm loving the garden theme. I like themes that aren't character themes...what a perfect summer birthday:)

  2. Oh they're cute and I love that they took home seeds. Kids adore seeing their plants grow. Although those aprons were way too cute to be getting dirt on them :)

  4. I agree with Grace... cake and favor bags are the most important element for a party. Okay maybe the dessert table too. ;) Your favor bags turned out adorable and I love what the fun surprise inside. I'm off to check out those aprons!

  5. Very lovely idea, party bags are my favourite things to create! I am hoping to sew up some little bags this year, we'll see if I pull it off! Love the little grass fringe and the seed pots! xx

  7. We (I) love using brown bags for treat bags. They can be decorated in so many cool ways. Yours are awesome!

  8. Cute favors - with the flower ring pop and homemade apron! (I think the grass would look less luau if turned the other way up, but not to take away from YOUR creation) Wait, no cake?! I think I'd be more disappointed than my kid though ;).

  9. This is such a cute idea! I did a pirate party for our Cub Scout Pack last year, and this would have been perfect!
