Each week I'll share some ideas and cool finds for party favors and this week is all about medals. If you think they're just for sporting events, think again.
We just celebrated my daughter's 4th birthday this past weekend and I included these Olympic style medals from our local Wal-Mart in the guests' favor boxes. They were a big hit! The kids loved wearing them and showing them off to each other and their parents.
If you're planning a party with lots of activities for the kids this 24 pack of Little Champs Award Medals from PartyCity.com could double as both prizes and favors for all of the participants. What child wouldn't love getting one of these colorful medallions that says "You're a Star".
For the slightly older and "cooler" guest list, check out the Rock Star ribbons from OrientalTrading.com. Be sure to add these to the "celebrity" gift bags for your teen's Hannah Montana, Guitar Hero, or Rock Band party.
Also from OrientalTrading.com are Design Your Own! Medals and very affordable I might add at $9.99 for a set that includes 2 dozen medals with 36" ribbons and 4 dozen paper inserts. With a little creativity and possibly the help of your computer you can create custom medals to fit any party theme.
Hope these ideas have sparked a little medal inspiration. Join me next week for more party favor ideas and cool finds.
