50th Anniversary Party Favors

My friends and I are planning a surprise 50th anniversary for another couple of friends. We're having it at a a very casual restaurant on the river. Does anyone have any ideas for cute simple place cards/favors to put at each seat? Maybe something we could put a few mints or other little items in. Nothing fancy because it will be quite casual.


Thanks for any ideas.

Why not seashells? Get some big enough to put a few mint in them.

I'd check out a local Dollar store or similar for small 'party favor' size boats. I like the idea of putting them in a shell with a few LIFESAVER candies.Wrap in netting, tie with a twine with a welcome aboard sign on it. You should also be able to pick up the boats at a party store.

How about this? I received one of these at a wedding. A plastic spoon (they come in colors, or in silver or gold color) with two hershey's kisses in the spoon, wrapped in tulle/netting, and tied with a bit of curling ribbon. I would use the gold-wrapped kisses, gold tulle, gold ribbon. Attach a tag that says, "A spoonful of kisses from the Mr. and Mrs.", or "Two golden kisses from the Mr. and Mrs.", etc.

Wedding Favor Spoonful of Kisses

Items needed:

Hershey's® Kisses

plastic spoons



Computer & Card Stock

On each spoon place a two kisses..

Then wrap the spoon with Tulle and tie a bow with the ribbon.

Attach a note that says:

"A spoonful of kisses from the Mr. and Mrs.!"

Continue with the shells ( unless it's too much)-- glue or stick the really small candy papers in gold-- it is a golden anniversary..... or gold cards on those shells with names in calligraphy in black--

Go to a party store-- see about gold bells as a name holder--

have fun

Thanks so much for all the great ideas. Since we are in Florida, the boats and shells sound perfect!

Hi There

Our family is in the process of planning our parents 50th. I just came across a company in Arizona called pretty party place .com. They have these buttermints pkg. 50 $2.99 with gold 50th anniversary wrappers. Then you could use white tulle netting with gold specks and a thankyou attached with a fine ribbon. I am ordering some tomorrow. I hope this helps.
