Here we are in August and most people are trying to squeeze every last drop of summer with barbecues, swim parties, family reunions and plain old beachy fun. How about giving your guests a little something special to remember the summer of 2010?
As a kid, I always looked forward to the "goody bag" and party favors from birthday parties and it got me to thinking why not continue that tradition forever? Beach House Living (see sponsor ad) is just the place to find personalized gifts. The silver plated spoon tags above would be a great way to mark your next event.
How about using these gorgeous nautical compass tags as place settings or to organize your goody bags? I would keep mine forever and use it as a book marker . In fact, these are available as a set of 6 and would be perfect for a book club party favor. The classical navy and gold colors are elegant and perfect for all of your guests.
Lastly, I am smitten with this nautical navy blue flower pin. This is a perfect year round accessory. I can see attaching it to a lapel or even a long gold chain necklace and using it as a broach. If you are planning a wedding or fancy event, this pin would make a huge splash. So while you are putting together goody bags for your guests, why not get yourself a little something too?
