I had NO idea what to give everyone as favors for a first birthday party. We were going to have little kids there as well as adults. I didn’t want to give the adults things that they were just going to throw away. But, I didn’t want to give the kids things with tons of sugar or that they wouldn’t care about. So, I opted to make two different favors and package them the same way.

I bought little cotton bags for all of the favors to go in. I then took some of the Martha Stewart Paint in Marigold and painted large suns on each of the bags. After I painted the suns I took a sharpie pen and went in to highlight areas and add the words “You are my only sunshine.”

The adults got wine coolers in summery flavors. Part of the reason I got this was because I wanted to add the tag that read, “You survived a first birthday party… drink up!”The other reason is because the brand is “B&J” and my husband’s name is Brian and my name is Jenni. I thought it funny. Ideas for other adult sunshine themed favors could include a homemade lemonade, pairs of sunglasses, sunscreen, or grill items.
The kiddos got a pair of sun glasses, a rubber ducky, and a travel sized sunscreen.
Every favor was attached to a balloon.
What has been your favorite favor at a kid’s party? I have several more years of party favors to do still.
