As you search for wedding favors and party decorations, keep in mind that Boston shops offer a variety of options to suit any occasion. Whether you want to give out small art pieces you found on Newbury Street as special wedding favors, or you want to decorate with brown and blue balloons for a Tufts University graduation, Massachusetts party favors and wedding decorations shops will have exactly the right items for you.
Do you need a lot of party decorations? Some venues already come with more spectacular party decorations than you could find on your own. Hosting a wedding reception at the Museum of Science, for example, ensures that guests will be greeted by a life-sized dinosaur, so many additional wedding decorations may not be needed. It can be fun to match your wedding favors to the theme of your Boston venue, especially if you have chosen a playful theme. You can give guests small, plush dinosaurs as wedding favors–many Boston shops are able to customize objects with the date of your celebration and a small message.
Party favors don’t have to be tangible. Some Boston hosts and hostesses are choosing to give charitable donations in their guests' names to causes such as Boston Children's Hospital. Whether you choose to keep your charitable party favors local or you want to support international causes, be sure to find charities that your guests will be glad to support.
Some party decorations should fit a color scheme. Use green, white, black, and gold centerpieces for a Celtics game day party, for example. You may also want to play with color in your party favors, such as giving out mini bottles of "crimson" wine for a Harvard graduation. Personalized labels make great party and wedding favors.
