DIY Clear Favor Bags with Personalized Tops Keep Favors Affordable

Here’s a party favor budget breakthrough for you: personalized favor bags for less than 25 cents each!

The secret is a do-it-yourself component, but the DIY is not a tough assignment in the least. Just fill the bags with treats or treasures and close them by attaching the themed tops you’ve personalized at the Stumps website.

There are at least three ways to use the new bags:

1. Offer bulk items. Shift an investment in money over to time instead, by buying or making your goodies in bulk and bagging them yourself. Bulk candy, nuts, mints and gumballs come to mind immediately, and you can easily find this type of item in colors to match your theme. Edibles are welcome at prom and other teen parties, and are always a terrific strategy whenever you are planning a largish party with a smallish budget.

Don’t stop the imaginings with sweet treats, though. How about sharing small bulbs or seeds/flowerheads for a garden club party, a homemade Cajun seasoning mix for a Mardi Gras themed event, or a Russian tea drink mix for a Mothers’ Day get-together?

Some ideas might involve a slip of paper or a label that identifies the contents and gives instructions for use. As long as the directions are very simple (e.g., “add 2T to 6 oz. hot water”) don’t count out any idea your imagination brings to you!

A small spoon or scoop could be the perfect way to finish a bagged mix, too.

2. Protect favors. Besides leaving a personalized touch, your favor bags may play a role in protecting favors from one mishap or another. A bagged necklace or medallion can’t get tangled with another one, for instance. And if you’ve chosen something shiny to favor your guests with, such as mirror-finish metal key tags, you can keep them in pristine, un-smudged condition until the partygoers themselves get their hands on them.

3. Create an assortment or kit. We love the s’mores kit in the Western bandanna-themed favor bag at right. It’s an excellent example of what we’re getting at with this category, which takes the bulk idea and multiplies the fun in a clever way whether you are talking parties or commercial promotions.

Prepare allotments of poker chips, plush dice and casino mints for a Vegas theme, and for Castle event favor bags place glass slipper key tags upon nests of silver party beads. Carnival bags can include tickets or tokens along with pre-wrapped edibles. Sample sizes of spa products and small glow items are also candidates for bagging; three items per favor bag is usually optimal.

Whether you’re looking to put together something festive that doesn’t break the bank, or simply want to put the budget more toward the favor than the container, the new DIY personalized clear favor bags may be just the thing for you and your event. Come by soon to browse and brainstorm.

Spring’s Top 10 Prom Themes

Stumps Party presents the list of spring’s top 10 prom themes.

Candy Land
If you want a combination of color and fun, this is the theme. The student body will love the lollipop-lined walkways, the sweet taffy waterfall, cupcake backdrops, and sweet candy arch. The success of this prom is easily described in one word – sweet.

Mardi Gras
Put the party into your prom with a Mardi Gras theme. Fill your space with vibrant purples, greens, and golds. Add beads, feathers, and masks. Based upon the style of your decorations, you can replicate the look of an embellished, New Orleans street or simply elicit a sense of mystical magic, or Afro-Caribbean mambo. What used to be for the French is now perfect for your school.

Hollywood
Everyone will sing “Hurray for Hollywood” when committee members see how easily this theme comes together and when the student body takes pleasure in the glitz of this hot theme. Give them the star treatment with a red carpet entrance, rows of paparazzi, lights, cameras, Hollywood Walk of Fame stars, and more. This theme can also lean to a more casual interpretation with an emphasis on film, popcorn, and lots of yellow, red, and white.

City
Bring the upscale, cosmopolitan atmosphere to your school with a city theme. Surround prom-goers with skyscrapers, billboards and lots of lights. Pull these items together to give the impression of a city, or make it a New York night with the addition of a Times Square theme kit or Central Park props.

Parisian
The Parisian theme is always a hit with its romantic, European flair. Imagine the excitement of your student body as they get to walk past the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe arch, or a Parisian café. Play some Edith Piaf, serve baguettes with pate, and cover the walls with backdrops depicting scenes of Paris, such as the Champs-Elysees.

Casino
You won’t be rolling the dice when you choose this popular theme. Students love the high-energy décor of playing cards, poker chips, dice, and roulette wheels. Choose from a jackpot night, a high roller night, or a Vegas escape theme kit. Include some games, a buffet and some live entertainment for the full casino experience.

India
The Indian theme has really become a favorite because of its modern exoticism. The juxtaposition of rich greens, purples, golds, blues, and pinks create a breathtaking look that is unique to the Indian culture. This theme benefits from lots of draping chiffon, shimmera, and gossamer fabrics, trimmed with string lights. Prom-goers will be charmed with the beauty of this destination theme prom.

Stars
Dazzle everyone with a stars theme prom. The student body will be taken aback when they find themselves surrounded with gold, silver, and white stars of all sizes that reflect light throughout the space. Choose from star-studded arches, stairways, columns, and tunnels. Decorate the ceiling with hanging stars, string lights, and panels of star gossamer fabric.

Castles
Prom-goers love the chance to revisit the days of chivalry and courtly love. That is why the castle theme is always a success. This theme can capture the romantic look of a fairytale castle, the medieval look of the Knights of Camelot, or the fantasy look of an ice castle.

Fifties
Everyone loves the 50’s. It was the time of the sock hop, the soda fountains, the poodle skirts, and the emergence of rock and roll. People knew how to have fun and student bodies all over the country still have fun with a fifties prom theme. Fill the space with 45’s, vintage car props, jukebox standees and drive-in decorations. This theme has lots of possibilities, so just run with it and have fun.

Choose your theme and fill all of your decorative, tableware, publicity and favors needs at Stumps Party. We love proms and we want to make sure that your school loves yours.

The kit includes a High Roller arch, a pair of High Roller columns, three giant chip standees, a slot machine standee, two movie spotlights and two exotic metallic palm trees.

For a decorative base for your prom kit, cover the walls in drapes of red gossamer and the floors with black flat paper for walkways.

Create an entrance and a gorgeous focal point for your event using the High Roller arch. The arch stands 10′ tall and 12′ wide and is made from corrugated cardboard. Plus, it’s accented with twinkle string lights for a special touch. Students can take fun commemorative photos under the arch to remember the event.

Accent the arch using the High Roller columns. They stand 10′ 8″ tall and 2′ wide and are topped off with printed playing cards. They’re perfect for filling out your decorations and subtly dividing up space.

Host a Fun Destination Prom with the Viva Las Vegas Theme

For a lot of fun at your prom, have a Las Vegas or casino theme. This is a great theme for a destination prom for a fun-loving school. The Viva Las Vegas casino theme decorating kit is perfect for capturing the perfect mood.

Start by using the Viva Las Vegas columns which create the impression of huge stacks of poker chips. They look great with the Viva Las Vegas arch which creates a cool card entrance. The Vegas theme would not be complete without the signs and lights of the Strip. The casino night signs and Night in Vegas backdrop are perfect for bringing the scenes of the Strip to your decorations.

Next bring the inside of the casino to your prom with Vegas showgirl silhouettes and a roulette wheel standee. Top it all off with the Viva Las Vegas personalized sign outlined with twinkle lights.

There are tons of decorating accents perfect for filling out your theme kit. Try lighted dice columns to create a beautiful walkway. Set them up next to the roulette walkway mural for the full effect. Giant cardboard dice and hit the jackpot pedestals are also great choices.

Create a beautiful photo setting to help make your student’s prom memories extra-memorable. The lighted gateway arch features poker chips and dice and is a great entrance as well as photo op. A Night in Las Vegas arch is great for a classic 50’s Vegas look.
