Instead of using a place card to show where your guests are sitting, why not use a beautifully wrapped party bag with a personalised name tag attached instead. They add a decorative feature to the table as well as something to keep your guests amused before the food hits the table! Adult party bags at a meal are always a good ice-breaker too if you are sitting near people you don’t know. For example our great party bags for adults called ‘That’s Entertainment’ has a funky ‘Tabletops’ which is super cool metal square tin containing fun games, quizzes and anecdotes that give an ideal reason to chat and have a laugh with others seated around you!
Party bags used as a table setting can be as elaborate and big as you like to make a bold statement or they can be small, simple and stylish with just a couple of exquisite wrapped chocolates in for after the meal with their coffee.
If you are thinking of giving your adult party bags out before or during you event, you must give thought to the contents and pick them wisely based on your venue. For example tiny bottles of mini champagne bubbles are great for the table as are puzzles, pampering bits for the ladies, chocolates etc, but noisy rocket balloons, fart whistles, and party poppers will not prove popular with other dinners or restaurant management if you are dinning in a general restaurant area. They are however great fun if you have your a private room or function suite and would we would highly recommend ‘Hair Raising!’ adult party bags if you are up for some serious fun.
Party Bags to match your theme
If you have a particular colour scheme for your party or event, you should try and match the colour of the party bags to your other decorations. If you have a theme to your party, why not match the party bags for adults to this theme too. If you are having a casino evening we have a great party bag called ‘Casino’ containing chocolate coins, a poker dice set with chips and a pack of playing cards. If you have a theme, why not ask us to make up bespoke party bags for you to match to it!
At Christmas time the trend over past years is for companies to attend organized themed Christmas parties run by big organisations usually with a theme like Alice in Wonderland, Circus, Fairground, James Bond parties. Why not let us make your party bags to match this theme, it’s much better than just a limp cracker and you’ll be the envy of other companies and tables around you too!
Party Bags to give away when your guests leave
Party bags for adults are a great way of saying thank you for coming to your party. You could put a short message on a personalised tag on each bag for example, ‘Thanks for coming to Anne’s 40th’. They make a great extra finishing touch to the party as well as a little thank you gift for your guests.
If you give your party bag out at the end of the party the chances are your guests will not open them until they get home so you can put something nice for them to keep or use in this type of party bag. For the ladies little pampering items are always very popular. Party bags containing neutral or clear coloured lip glosses, small novelty pocket tissue packs for their handbags, little bubble bath sachets, small bath bombs and, of course, chocolates are always a safe bet. Miniatures of liqueurs or individual servings of sparkling wine are great too but just make sure you don’t give them out to any t-total guests or younger guests that may be ‘grown-ups’ but not yet 18!
Party Bags for the morning after!
If you plan for your party to carry on until the small wee hours, and you know your guests may over indulge, why not give them a party bag especially designed for the morning after the night before! What better to wake up to a little package containing an energy drink, some mints to freshen that party breath and a chocolate brownie for a bit of a sugar rush! We even have some party bags that contain Life of Lime Solid Shower Gel to energise wake them up.
Party Bags for all ages of grown-ups!
Use your imagination! You don’t have to have all your party bags for adults the same as your Great Aunt Dorothy may not appreciate a pot of glittery nail varnish whereas the rest of your friends would, so think about tailoring the bag to the person. It will make each guest think they are special and that you have given some thought to what they would really like.
