If you're looking for the best party favors or wedding decorations, look no further. New Orleans not only has shops that provide party decorations and wedding favors; the Louisiana city itself is an inspiration. From giving out Mardi Gras masks and beads to decorating your reception tables with New Orleans style street signs (careful, everyone will want to sit at "Rue Bourbon"), your choices are only limited by your imagination.
As you plan your party favors and decorations, consider what event you're celebrating. A graduation celebration for a student of Loyola University, for example, could use maroon and gold arches of balloons as party decorations, and give out baked goods or jewelry in the school colors as party favors. As long as you match your party favors to your theme, you can't go wrong.
Are you expecting many guests from outside of New Orleans? Holding your wedding in a city with such world-famous flavor gives you a distinct advantage. Give out-of-town guests a taste of New Orleans with mini voodoo dolls as wedding favors. Every time your guests stick a pin into the novelty doll, they'll think back fondly to your celebration (just make sure the doll doesn't look like you!). Celebrate New Orleans culture with wedding decorations like jazz-themed centerpieces or custom-painted backdrops evoking the bayou.
Before you buy wedding decorations, check with your New Orleans venue. Some venues have many types of decorations in storage, and are willing to pull them out for your celebration. It's also important to check with your venue about any restrictions on the type of wedding decorations you can use; sometimes fire safety rules limit what can be hung on ceilings or walls.
