Oh, Baby! Fun Baby Shower Favors for the Mom-to-Be and Her Guests

Babies bring so much with them: joy, hope, and the promise of new beginnings. We all know it's not just the mother-to-be who gets excited about the new little one - friends and family can't wait either! Celebrate the new mom at her shower, and get everyone else in on the fun with customized baby shower favors!
Here are three exciting ways to share in the fun!
1) Use these as cute party favors. Greet guests as they walk in the door with their own chocolate bar keepsake to commemorate the event, or give them out as people leave as a sweet reminder of the fun they had! Imagine the smiles on their faces as they realize their candy is personalized!
2) Prizes for baby shower games. We all know them: from guessing the baby food flavors to collecting diaper pins from anyone who says the word "baby", games are a staple at many baby showers. Up the ante by using personalized sweets as prizes. While not everyone enjoys the games, these favors will certainly "sweeten" the experience (get it?)!
3) Refreshments for your guests. Personalized favors look so cute on the refreshment table. They don't have to be off to the side, either - you can make them the main event! Who says there HAS to be a cake? Fun, themed chocolate bars are just as sweet, and much less hassle!
No matter what the theme, preferred colors, or whether you're welcoming a new little boy or little girl into the world, Sweet Wrappings has just what you need to complete the finishing touches on the perfect baby shower.
Don't wait! Contact us today to get started on the perfect personalized favor!

Candy Wedding Favors Expected to Make Sweet Impact on Millennial Couples

Brides Magazine's writers have let their secret predictions out! Food, especially desserts, will likely be front and center this year. So candy wedding favor should be at the top of every Millennial couples' list. The personalized favors may be designed and ordered online. Plus, the finished sweets may be worked into wedding day plans in a number of ways. For proof, sink your teeth into these:
Hello and Good Night
Why not leave candy wedding favors at the host hotels? Ask the front desk staff to present them to wedding guests as they check in or have the maids place some on each person's pillow. For local guests, leave the candy wedding favors with the transportation service or maitre-de. We're sure if it's worked into their respective service contracts ahead of time, these providers would be willing to help distribute candy wedding favors to guests.
Did Someone Say Candy Bar?
Since Brides Magazine's writers also believe non-traditional goodies will be in, we suspect candy bars will make a comeback. Once popular only at Sweet 16s and QuinceaƱeras, we've seen such overflowing displays successfully used at weddings too. The key to candy bar popularity will be variety. So therefore, Millennial couples with bars in mind should plan on choosing more than one custom wrapper.
Nibble Away at Boredom
Lastly, candy wedding favors could be used as conversation starters or activity prompts. In that regard, think about hiding messages of some sort inside the candy bars' wrappers. Take a look at popular question and answer style board games for inspiration. Afterward, rewrite the inquiries with the bridal couple, wedding theme or an ice breaker activity in mind.
To learn more about obtaining candy wedding favors in time for 2017 nuptials and working them into bridal plans, please contact our Sweet Wrappings Team today.

Choose your wedding colors then select a custom wedding candy bar wrapper

Take a deep breath. He proposed!
Ok, maybe she proposed. Maybe you just talked it over and decided it's time to set a date. We don't judge. We're just thrilled that you are here at this turning point in your life. Next comes your wedding! Selecting a color theme makes the logistics of your wedding preparation much simpler.
Depending on when and where the wedding will be, you may be thinking of spring flowers or summer beach sunsets. Whatever your timeline, the seasonality of your wedding date - which will be your anniversary season for the rest of your life together - can help decide your wedding color palette.
By way of example, perhaps you are keen on citrus tones - say, lemon yellow and tangerine - for your special day. (Remember, this is an example: you can easily substitute your own favorite color.) Let's see how this works for the couple who wants the sunny glow of yellow to shine on their nuptial day.
For the couple who embraces yellow in the springtime, the feeling is oh so floral.
Your florist will have many options in yellow in the springtime. Daffodils, Ranunculus, Freesias... the list is stunning. While flower meanings are all over the map, many people see transcendent friendship expressed in a bouquet of yellow roses. How perfect for saying that you are marrying both your true love and your best friend. Now choose colorful invitations and custom candy wrappers like this joyful citrus example or this garden lovebird treat.
Yellow and tangerine can guide your sunny summer wedding plans.
Yellow in summertime says sunflowers, the beach, or just as easily a bright orange beach ball or cheerful poolside toy. Yellow summer flowers include the lavish Zinnia, providing a visual anchor for everything you need.
A chocolate bar for a welcome gift bag can burst with your optimistic color like this intense monogrammed treat.
Yellow and tangerine. If that combo's not for you, look for your own favorite tones among our wedding candy bar wrapper collection. Color the wedding of your dreams from the first announcement all the way through to the thank you notes. And never forget the candies! Our single purpose is to help you create the perfect, memorable wedding treats you are looking for. Please get in touch.

Order Custom Candy Wrappers to Celebrate These Three Occasions

Do you have a celebration or party planned for a child? A great way to personalize the celebration and make it fun and exciting is by ordering custom candy wrappers. It's a great way to customize the party and surprise the person the party is being planned for. Here are three occasions you may want to order custom wrappers for, along with some design ideas.
Birthday Parties
What better way to surprise the birthday boy or girl than to set up the surprise party with wrappers saying "Happy Birthday!" and containing the child's age? You can create custom happy birthday wishes, and you can even create wrappers with the child's photo on it. You can even have a photo of your child as a baby alongside a recent photo, with a message to the tune of "How Much You've Grown!".
Graduation Parties
Celebrating your child's graduation from elementary, middle, or high school will be a much more joyous occasion when you celebrate with custom wrappers. Order your child's favorite treats wrapped with congratulatory messages to let them know how proud you are.
Bar and Bat Mitzvah Celebrations
When your child reaches 13 years of age (12 years of age for girls), you may have the custom of celebrating this milestone with a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party. Whether the party will be held in a hall, synagogue, temple, Jewish Center or your house, you can spice up the occasion with custom-themed wrappers containing Bar/Bat Mitzvah messages and Jewish symbols.

For more ideas and to check out some great designs, just contact us.

Which Wedding Reception Favors Help Bridal Couples Embrace the Boho Trend?

The trend towards throwing Boho themed parties started in Europe towards the end of 2016 and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Americans are embracing the chic look of all things Boho too and that includes 2017's bridal couples. So what does the Boho trend mean for wedding reception favors this year and possibly the next? Let's see:
The theme's foundation stretches back to the decade of extremes and juxtapositions. Yes, we're talking 1960s here. Portions of the nation were very much in to doing their own thing. So it was typical to see the stereotypical, free-wheeling hippies in one section of an American town and conservatively dressed fans of Camelot in the other.
The hippie vibe is what many brides are embracing today. So we expect wedding reception favors to have a distinctly retro feel. To achieve that nod to 60s nostalgia, brides have several options. For instance, they could choose to personalize candy that was popular throughout the turbulent decade. In terms of chocolate, that category would include Big Hunk, Abba Zaba and 100 Grand bars, just to name three.
Couples that didn't want to go that retro could stick with modern chocolate bars. They're readily available and inexpensive. Plus, they could make the candies appear to be from the Bohemian fueled era by altering the wrappers. With that said, wedding reception favor wrappers meant to inspire Bohemian thoughts should be colorful. After all, much of the 60s vibe centered on free expression and experimentation.
In addition to being colorful, wedding reception favors for Bohemian bridal couples could feature retro graphics and phrases. The phrases could be extremely short while still getting the point across. For example, there could be wedding reception favors marked as "for cats" or "for chicks." The first term was slang for men and the latter means women. For more suggestions like these or to order Bohemian inspired favors of your own, please contact Sweet Wrappings today.
