Homecoming Dance Favors & Fun

Posted by Stumps Spirit on September 21, 2011

The Homecoming dance is coming up fast! By this time you’ve got your theme idea, and what kinds of Homecoming supplies you’ll need to rock it. Next step is to choose just the right Homecoming favors to complete the evening.

Album & Frame Favors
Album favors and frame favors suit Homecoming naturally, because they’re ready to receive posed photos and candid shots from the event. Look for theme designs or keep it simply elegant in black, gold or silver.

Take your Homecoming favor browsing beyond albums and frames to examine other possibilities. Photo cubes are fun and affordable. Key tags and even clocks have room for photos and feed your practical side as well.

Edible and Consumable Favors
Candy, gum and other edibles are perennially popular but have other advantages, too. Containers and other packaging allow for a high degree of customizability to your theme and individual event, and the cost ranges widely so you’re sure to find many suitable options for your budget that will also have a look that’s one of a kind.

Design chocolate and candy lollipops for a Candy Land Homecoming theme, caramel popcorn for a Carnival dance, and elegant mint tins for City, Black Tie or other, more formal Homecoming themes.

Of course, you don’t have to be a zombie to understand that edible favors for a Halloween themed Homecoming dance are a no-brainer!

Kick up personalization another notch by selecting candy jars or cookie tins in a theme design and then filling them yourself.

Look for other consumables such as soaps, lip balms and drink mixes.

Favors that Double as Décor and Tableware
Many customized edible and other Homecoming favors absolutely deserve a place at the table. You can place them on top of – or alongside of – place settings, or as part of your centerpieces (as we’ve shown with the Mardi Gras lollipops).

Another option is to wrap up Homecoming favors and favor combos in swanky swag bags, eye-catching thematic totes or custom keepsake tins that add a dressy touch to tables.

Imagine also the sparkle you can bring with carefully selected glassware favors and custom candles.

Don’t Forget the Favor Finder
The Favor Finder is fun and easy to use. Whether you’re already halfway to a Homecoming favor decision or could use a bit of help narrowing down the selection, Favor Finder will help you reach the perfect result for your event, theme and budget.

Table Decorations for Dances, Banquets and Fundraisers

Posted by Stumps Spirit on September 2, 2008

You can alter the look of your Homecoming very quickly when you jazz up your tables with decorations. Don’t overlook table decorations! They can tie in with your theme and create a very cohesive look to your Homecoming decor.

Adorn Banquet Tables
Flame-retardant gossamer is the perfect covering for a buffet table with hot food trays on it. The treated gossamer will ease your worries, while adding a glamorous touch.

Tropical Tables
Add a nautical touch to your tables by covering them with blue super shine table covering (for a watery look), then let tiny boats “sail” across your vast tables. Place a Potted Palm Tree Centerpiece on the “oceans” for a tropical effect.

Menu Jackets
Dress-up menu covers with marble spray paint, then laminate the paper to make the elegant appearance permanent.

Mexican Munchies
Place a sombrero in the middle of each table. Fill the rim with fruit and nuts for an instant centerpiece success! Or use it to hold tortilla chips and place the salsa nearby.

Evening Dinner Party
For an evening dinner party light up the night by placing a starlight petite candle at each place setting. With your special design imprinted on the glass, the arrangement of dancing light will create a romantic mood not to be forgotten.

Elegant Place Settings
For an elegant place setting and party favor, use a contempo glass, imprinted with your special design. Place a silk rose through the hole in the stem (there’s a wide variety of silk rose colors to choose from), and fill the bowl of the glass with iridescent shred.

Really Clean Up
Want to make a special event unique without spending to much money? Foil imprinted napkins are an easy way to create a unique memento of a special evening, while staying on budget.

Create a Fun Party Favor
Use a Jr. Distinction Glitter Candle imprinted with the special design of your party and choose from a wide variety of glitter colors. Then twist a garter or armband, from our wide selection, around the stem of the glass. This will be a fun way of giving unique party favors to your guests.

Metallic Curtains & Table Skirting
Hang metallic curtains or table skirting from a gymnasium ceiling to create a dazzling intimate feel to the large spaces.

Balloon Centerpieces
Spray balloons with marble spray for a contemporary look. Attach one end of some bright curling ribbon to a helium-filled balloon; attach the other end to netting filled with candy. Voila! You have an edible centerpiece that everyone will want to take home!

Napkin Rings
Wind Milky Way garland into loose rings 1″ in diameter, and use the end result as napkin rings.

Tie gossamer in knots every 2 feet, fluff between the knots and sprinkle with confetti for elegant table runners.

Place gemstones in vases to hold flowers in centerpiece arrangements.

Die-Cut Borders
Use around the table edges to create a unique theme touch.
