2. Potted plants
Pop some seeds in a pot and let your little friends grow their own garden, or provide a deconstructed set to let the birthday guests make their own. A cute, eco-friendly party treat, which even the adults will love!
With creative flavours like salted caramel, rocky road, polka dot and hazelnut, these yummy treats will be a hit with the birthday guests! If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out HOORAY!’s round-up of 7 ways to flavour popcorn for parties.
4. Candy bark
Another favourite (and quick!) party favour option is candy bark. Simply melt some chocolate, pop on some yummy goodness (think sprinkles, jelly beans, coconut, nuts, skittles and even cereal!), leave it to set and then break it up into edible shards. Things By Bean has an easy DIY for Milk and Cereal Candy Bark here.

6. DIY lace or flower crowns
Jump on board this massive trend and get your little princess (and prince!) guests to make their own crowns. From traditional flower crowns to DIY lace crowns, these are sure to be a hit and royally appreciated by guests.
7. Themed party favours
Think beach towels for a pool party, fairy wands for a princess party or design your own teacup for an Alice in Wonderland inspired party. Team your party favours around the party theme and you’ll look like a party planning professional.
8. Home-made marshmallows
Who can resist a marshmallow or seven? If you’re up for a bit of a challenge, get your hands sticky and get baking (we promise it’s worth it!). We’ve got a recipe for home-made fluffy marshmallows here—these fluffy little pieces of heaven will go down a treat with the guests at your next party!
