We love seeing all the clever ways people are celebrating these days. Drive-thru events are a fun, new way to keep the party going while still social distancing. House fronts and lawns get decked out with balloons, streamers, props, and colorful murals. Friends and family parade by in cars decorated with flowers, more balloons, and ‘happy birthday’ signs hanging out the windows. To-go party favors can be placed on a table in the yard, or can be handed off to curbside guests with minimal contact. Here are two cute ideas for easy favors guests can enjoy back at home.
For a kid’s birthday party, package up cinnamon rolls (store-bought or homemade) in a gift box with a sweet message on top: “We love how you roll!” to thank them for driving by on the big day.
Mini-champagne and keepsake coasters are perfect for a grown up party to-go. Add a message like “Thanks for making my day sparkle” and “Cheers to ‘birthday person’s name’ – and you!” Make it more fun by specifying a time for everyone to open their bottles and share a toast.
Bundle the mini-champagne and coaster in a cellophane bag and top off with a hangtag and pretty bow. Cheers!
Items pictured: For the cinnamon roll idea, we used the Five & Dime design labels. The mini-champagne idea features Gatsby design for the label and tag , along with Golden Honor design coasters.
