Greetings, Friends! Recently I shared with you the bridal shower my sisters and I hosted over the weekend for our niece. The theme was a Chandelier Bridal Shower so naturally the party favors needed to follow suit. Come check out the chandelier bridal shower party favors!
Once my sisters and I decided on the chandelier party theme, we ran with it! We ordered custom cocktail napkins from Zazzle.com with a chandelier that said, “Faith’s Bridal Shower” and the date. Keeping this in mind, we started searching online for party decor with chandeliers. ( Personalized Party Napkins here )
For my daughter-in-law’s shower last year my sister found these great personalized stickers you use to cover miniature Hershey candy bars. They come in a sheet of 21 stickers for around $6. It’s such a fun and relatively inexpensive way to add a personal touch to any event. Now you can order wrappers to fit Hershey Nuggets too! (Make sure you specify when ordering.) ( Bridal Shower – Mini Candy Bar Wrappers here )
We searched for chandelier candy wrappers and this amazing website popped up called Great Little Favor Company. They had exactly what we were looking for! We loved the classic black and white so we ordered four sheets for the shower. Here is a photo from their website. Aren’t they pretty?

The Hershey miniature candy bars come in a Party Pack which includes about 130 pieces which is more than enough for a shower. Once the stickers arrived in the mail, I sat down with a glass of wine, the candy, and set to work. And what’s better than wine and chocolate? So, about 84 wrapped candy bars later I was done!

The Great Little Favor Company will also personalize stickers that fit on the bottoms of Hershey’s Kisses too. Aren’t these sweet? These would be great as favors for a wedding reception. This photo is also via their website. ( Personalized Stickers for Hershey’s Kisses here )
However, I was running out of time so I ordered a pack of preprinted thank you stickers on Amazon. This pack of 324 Floral Roses Thank you Hershey Kisses wedding stickers are $7.99. They are pretty and simple. Again, I used a party size bag of Hershey Kisses. We used the kisses with stickers in the favor boxes and set out some extras in a glass dish at the shower as a thank you for coming. (Amazon also can personalize the kiss stickers.)
The party favors further emphasized our chandelier theme! We made our own party favors using boxes I found at Michael’s about a year ago. The clear plastic boxes came in a pack of 50 and had translucent white ribbon attached to the bottom and were around $20. We sent out about 42 invitations so 50 was the perfect number to shoot for. It’s a good thing because about 8 of the boxes were duds and broke during assembly. The boxes I used are no longer available (probably for obvious reasons) The boxes were by His and Hers and didn’t come with instructions making it tricky to put them together. I love how they turned out but I admit they were a pain to assemble. We ended up adding a piece of clear packing tape in the bottom of each box to hold them together.
The finished boxes measure about 1 ½” by 2 ½” and were each able to hold 2 miniature Hershey candy bars, 3 Hershey Kisses and 3 individually wrapped white mints. We filled the boxes and tied the ribbons on top.
We added the final crowning touch, a chandelier sticker which said, “Faith’s Bridal Shower”. We aligned the bottom edge of the sticker with the bottom edge of the box and used the small top part of the sticker to seal the top flap of the box. Again, I found the stickers on Zazzle.com. I searched for “chandelier stickers” and this is one of many designs to choose from. This style is called “GC Shabby Aqua Garden Chandelier Square Sticker” and are 1 ½” square. They come in a sheet of 20 and were $4.21 per sheet. (plus taxes and shipping) We had extras so we stuck them on plastic cocktail cups for an added decorative touch. Didn’t they turn out sweet?
And about 40ish boxes later, we stacked them on a silver serving tray and placed it on the kitchen island with the other decorations. Each of the guests took home one of the favors and I gave the rest to Faith Elizabeth so she could share with her friends that were unable to attend the bridal shower.
The boxes I used are no longer available, but I found similar ones on Amazon: They are David Tutera Flocked Swirl Favor Boxes with Ribbon, White-24 pack for around $10. (See the link below for the boxes.) And, they look much more substantial. Next time I’ll use these. Plus, it looks like a 1 ½” sticker would fit perfectly on the front of the box. These would make great wedding favors too!
There are so many different styles of favor boxes and bags to choose from. Zazzle, Minted, and Beau-coup all have really nice options and will even personalize them for you so all you need to do is fill them. Amazon also has a wide selection of party favors so be sure to check them out too! I wanted to use the boxes I had on hand and I’m pleased with the way they turned out, thanks to our personalized stickers and candy. I’m so glad my sister came to help me with the favors. Not only was it much more efficient, but lots more fun! Thanks, Steph! Here’s another option for party favors. I bought these little jars last year for my daughter-in-law’s shower. Boxes and Jars are available here: ( Miniature Boxes here ) ( Miniature Jars here )
The sky is the limit when it comes to party favors. I can’t wait to see what Faith Elizabeth chooses for her wedding reception favors! So many details go into a wedding, right? We had so much fun planning the festivities for my son’s wedding last year and this year we have another!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate your thoughts and comments. Please share me with your friends and family! xoxo Dell
