easy favor Friday...

Last weekend, we had a last minute family gathering at our house.  
We were ordering biggie.
I'm a huge fan of favors/goodies/take-aways - even if it's a super casual get-together.  

I have LOTS of m&m's (don't ask...but I know a guy) so I decided those would be my favors.  I also picked up some really cute paper doilies from $ Tree 36/$1 
(I have a few projects in mind for them) so I used a few of those.  
I also used some orange ribbon I already had.  
I recently found these Fall themed printables from Crafty Workin Mommy.  
Not only did Terri create cupcake toppers, she also created bag toppers AND labels.  
Oh..and they are all free :) - Thanks Terri!

Here's a close up of my basically free favor - pretty cute, I must say. 
And yes, that's football field scrapbook paper as my runner.
It was Sunday/football afternoon.

Here's my 'centerpiece' - my goodwill 3 tiered server
 and yes..those are football shaped Oreos :)

I got to thinking...these would make great favors any time.  Especially if you're tailgating or just having people over to watch a game (or all, if you're the husband). 

I found the Fall themed M&M's today. 

A handful + a snack size ziploc baggie + raffia/ribbon = super easy (portable) treat.

New Friend Fridays

HA HA HA HA HA Ouch! My side hurts! OK I don't know why that was as painfully funny as it was!

Let me tell you what I'm laughing at:

I got to the picture of the cookies and said (aloud) "Are those football shaped Oreos?!" And then scrolled enough to see that you pre-answered me! ("and yes..those are football shaped Oreos :)") LOL

I'm such a dork but that was hilarious to me...LOL ;P

ANKH said...

PS: Now I want some pretty M&M's! LOL Not enough to me M&M's, they have to be dressed up like yours, too! LOL

I saw those football oreo's last week at the grocery store for the first time. I almost grabbed some!

Wow, you are such a great hostess! If my family comes over, the don't get to take home stuff, unless it's the dust the got on themselves when the accidentally knocked up against something. HA! Okay, it's not that bad around here. My family members just usually get leftovers.

I was so excited when I was just checking out your blog and noticed that you used my Fall labels. That just made my day!
Thank you so much. I am going to add a picture of this on my blog and link it back to you!
