When I was a little girl, I’d become overjoyed when I was invited to a fellow friends birthday party. The primary reason behind my excitement was typically because I knew I’d be leaving said party with a loot bag. The thought of riffling through my personal bag of treats on the post-party car ride home still brings back fond memories. If I’m being honest, since growing up, not much has changed – party favors still excite me to no end. For our Super Bowl Fiesta, we put together these fabulous margarita favors to hand out to our guests. Beautifully captured by Hello Love Photography, they’re like adult loot bags and I don’t think I’m alone when I say that that’s a wonderful thing.
I know. Believe it or not, it all started with that black and white washi tape. It fit perfectly with our black and white stripe backdrop and we used the tape + the straws to let our imagination run wild. Enter a tiny bottle of tequila and homemade margarita mix and well, I know. It’s just too good to be true. And crazy crazy crazy easy. Which officially makes this the best favor in the history of the world.
