I have good friends who go all out for their children’s birthday party goody bags. The bags and contents perfectly match the party theme and you can tell that an incredible amount of thought went into their creation. I’ve also attended parties where the goody bags are clearly assembled at the last minute after a hurried trip to a party supply store to raid the discount bins.
I wish I could say that my kids like the first option best, but really, they’re usually just thrilled to have something to bring home. Then again, they’re equally happy to come home empty handed. So in our house party favors are very much dependent on whether or not mommy can get to the store in time to assemble the goody bags.
Our Facebook fans have already started the conversation, but we would love to know where you stand. So? Birthday party goody bags — do you go all out? Throw something easy together? Or skip it entirely? You tell us!
