Christmas Party Supplies and Christmas Decorations

Personalize Your Christmas Party Favors

History of Christmas actually dates back to over 4,000 years ago, and it can be traced by to the Mesopotamians, long before the birth of Christ. Many Christmas traditions came about while the Mesopotamians were celebrating their New Year. A twelve-day festival, called Zagmuk, began to help Marduk, their chief god, do battle with many monstrous beasts.

Many Europeans believed that during the Winter Solstice, the evil spirits would prevent the sun from returning and warming the earth. They had celebrations and rituals to welcome the sun back.

In Scandinavian countries, the sun would disappear for many days during the winter. Scouts were sent to the top of the mountains to search for the sun after thirty-five days. A Yuletide festival ensued when the scouts returned with the good news that they had seen the light of the sun returning. A feast would take place around a burning Yule log, and large bonfires would also take place to celebrate this joyous occasion. Some people would tie apples to the branches of trees reminding them of the coming spring and summer months. This is reminiscent of our Christmas tree decorating ritual of today.

When the Romans celebrated with a festival called Saturnalia, named after their god Saturn, there were masquerades and great meals, visiting and gift-giving, which represented the exchange of good luck treats. Their halls were decked with garlands, and trees were lit with candles.

Wedding Favors: Top Tips for Fabulous Wedding Favors

Here are 7 inspiring favor ideas to help you get creative with your own gracious gifts.

Match Don’t Mix

Whatever your wedding favors may be, pick packaging that matches and coordinates with your wedding colors — and your table decor. Visit a neighborhood fabric store for ribbons to match your wedding-day palette (if you have one, bring along a swatch of your table linens) and personalize each favor with a monogrammed sticker or unique favor label.

Go for Double-duty Favors

Make your favors and your escort cards one in the same. From lollipops to Christmas ornaments, tag your favors with each guest’s name and table number and place them on the escort table. Other escort card, favor pair-ups: apples with tags tied to the stem; luggage tags with table numbers tucked inside; and miniature wine bottles with table number and name labels.

Give One Per Couple

If you wish to give more expensive, high-end favors but need to find a way to skim the fat, give one gift per couple by placing the favor between their two dinner plates, and tagging it with the couple’s names. For your single friends, stick with one gift per person. Great gifts for pairs: domino game sets, potted orchids, and bottles of gourmet olive oil.

Try DIY Favors

Perfect for the budget-pressed couple, and the crafty ones alike, consider making your favors. A few ideas: homemade jam in jars packaged with fabric and tied off with raffia; make homemade fudge and cut it up into bite-sized pieces; or give out sugar cookies, iced with your monogram. Keep in mind that DIY projects take time and energy to carry through. So if you decide to go for this option, get your closest friends and family on board with you to help — and have fun with it!
