one more detail
I just wanted to share one more detail about Isaac's party. The favors! This is one of my favorite party details. I love thinking up little bits of gift to give out to people as they leave. I love that they are small. I love to package them all nice and pretty. Favors are just so cute. And I really love cute.
For Andrew's birthdays I've been giving out a photo related favor. One year it was a photo of him in a little magnet. And I like the photo favor. So for Isaac's birthday, I made these little bookmarks with a photo of Andrew and Isaac reading. On the back of the bookmarks it has their names, ages and the date. I've seen bookmarks like these around lately and thought I would give it a try. The paper is folded in half and there are little magnets inside holding the two sides together. Easy!
Mama V was asking me if favors are a regional thing. She wondered if I picked up the tradition of giving favors in New England. But my mom, from North Carolina, guessed that it might be a Southern tradition. So, I wanted to throw out the question to you! Do you give favors? For what kinds of occasions? Have you noticed regional differences? Thanks all! And a Happy Monday to you!
