A Dutch or Scottish themed party incorporates your national heritage into a birthday party, bridal shower or wedding reception. Dutch- and Scottish-themed party favours provide keepsakes for your guests to remember your special day.
Coloured sugar-coated almonds are a Scottish wedding favour tradition that can extend to other parties and be presented in bundles of five. The sugar represents the sweet life ahead and the five colours represent health, wealth, fertility, happiness and longevity.
Consider using national flowers as a party favour. The national flowers of Scotland and Holland are the Scottish thistle and the tulip, respectively. You could give each guest a small painted flowerpot with a single planting of either of these flowers or a packet of seeds or bulbs tied up with a pretty ribbon.
For gift bags that reflect a Scottish or Dutch theme, consider using small linen or cotton bags that have a thistle or an Amsterdam tulip painted on them. Fill these bags with miniature "klompen" or traditional wooden clogs of The Netherlands or with Welsh wedding spoons, which are not Scottish but reflect the Celtic nature of Scotland.
