Treat guests to something sweet with this posh little box curated by Bellevue-based Simply by Tamara Nicole. Filled with Valrhona Ivoire white-chocolate-covered Oreos accented with an edible metallic luster and handcrafted sugar blossoms from Lower Queen Anne’s Honey Crumb Cake Studio, the favor is polished off by a hand-calligraphed watercolor tag from Kirkland’s La Happy. Starts at $7 each or $80/dozen.
As dandy as its creator, Fremont-based Dandy & Fine Parties, this silver box stars handmade bourbon lollipops created with dried pear crisps from SoDo-based Simple & Crisp. Beautifully suited for fall, the pops are complemented by fragrant star anise, gold tinsel baker’s twine and gold sugar, and finished with a darling “We’re Suckers for Love” paper-flag tag. $9/favor.
Take care of your guests the next day, too, with Chinatown/International District–based Wonderstruck Event Design’s hangover recovery kit. Accented by a custom gold sticker, the handy favor contains a packet of Emergen-C, a tiny box of Altoids, Advil, Dilettante chocolate and a miniature bottle of Tito’s vodka. $13/favor.
Capture the sparkle of the night with a teal- and gold-bedecked geode favor from Kirkland’s Pink Blossom Events: Each favor comes complete with a crystalline geode, to be broken open using the accompanying gold hammer, plus a sweet tag from Portland’s Clay & Ink Calligraphy Studio. $7/favor; optional gold hammer $11.75 each. Eight-ounce takeout boxes in gold, silver or white, $.65 each from PS Stores in Georgetown.
