Ideas for Ladies Lunch Favors

A ladies' lunch may include women from all walks of life, so choosing favours that will appeal to everyone may seem challenging. Favours can be the one element that make a nice event into a fantastic one. Each guest will take her favour home and every time she sees it, she'll be reminded of how much effort you put into planning the lunch.

Floral Favors

Floral favours allow each woman to take a bit of life and colour home with her. These favours are also affordable, particularly if you buy flowers that are in season. Buy potted flowers from a garden store and replant each bloom in its own small pot. Decorate the pots with colourful paint or ribbons. If the weather outside is chilly, give each woman a bulb that she can plant when it warms up outside. As a bonus, these favours can double as centrepieces when they're grouped in the centre of each table.

Food and Drink Favors

You can't go wrong with edible favours that every woman will love. Use the luncheon's theme for inspiration. For instance, if you're holding a garden-themed tea party, send each woman home with a box of loose tea and a tea cup. If you're serving barbecue, send each woman home with a bottle of sauce. If you can get the caterers to spill their secrets, you may type up a recipe for one of dishes served at the luncheon. Attach each recipe to a wooden spoon or a patterned cloth apron.

Scented Favors

It's a rare woman who won't appreciate a little pampering. Sweet-smelling favours give each woman a chance to slow down and relax. Scented candles, bags of potpourri or small bottles of perfume or room spray are all appropriate favours. If the bottles aren't decorative enough on their own, wrap a colourful ribbon around each one. These scents can be overwhelming while women are eating, so set them up on a table away from the dining tables.

Wearable Favors

When you get dozens or even hundreds of women in a room together, chances are good that several fashion-related conversations are going on at any time. Women will love receiving wearable favours, but only if they're one-size-fits-all. Give each woman a patterned scarf, pair of earrings or a sparkly necklace. Every woman can use these gifts without worrying about her size. Some wearable favours can be pricey, but you may be able to strike a deal with a local jeweller if you hang up some ads in exchange for a good deal on favours.
