  • Place settings - Leave the little paper tags at the store the next time you are doing assigned seating for a gather. Put names on candy bars and leave them sitting on the plates when it's time to sit around the tables.

  • Candy Party Favors - Party favors and goody bags are all the rage now for children's birthday parties. Come to the party with a gift, leave with a good bag full of little toys that will soon be lost and hard candy that doubles as a choking hazard. Simplify your life and the party by handing out full size candy bars, instead. The kids will like the candy and their parents will like not having a bag filled with small toys.
