When our very own Christine of Cool Party Favors decided to give favors, you can bet that she did it in a creative way.  She combined her favors and centerpieces by placing a cute rosary inside of cake boxes.  These cake boxes were the foundation of the centerpieces which started with a round base.  The first centerpiece was for a baptism.


After locating some inexpensive white cake boxes online, she created layers and tied them with ribbon and floral decorations from Michael’s.  The ribbon not only served as a decoration, but kept the boxes in place.  She used a cross topper to finish the centerpiece.

Inside of the cake boxes she placed some of our mini rosary favors.

Baptism Rosary Favors

Here is one of the centerpieces that Christine created for a communion.  She used square cake boxes which were easier to arrange and placed them in layers.  Once again, Chris used ribbon to decorate the boxes as well as hold them in place.  Floral decorations were placed at the side of each layer and a photo frame with the guest of honors image topped off the cake.


Inside of the boxes, Chris put these communion rosary favors.  They come assembled.

Another option, to save money, is to create your own packaging to create rosary favors with these:

Paris has always been one of the top tourist destinations in the world. With romantic gardens, historic landmarks and stunning architecture, this city has inspired many interesting party themes, including travel-related ones. The NACE Tabletop WOW competition in Detroit on the theme “Around the World” also saw a beautiful entry featuring a Parisian theme. Here are some glimpses of it!

Paris Theme PartyThe table called “Parisian Afternoon” was one of the prettiest entries at the competition. The décor had generous doses of Tiffany blue, soft shades of pink and off-white that create a relaxing effect. The design includes delightful little trinkets like the blue dog salt and pepper shakers, that made it impressive to the smallest detail.

Paris Themed PartyThe entire arrangement was stunning, with a magical backdrop of paper flowers that complemented superb table décor. The impeccable spread was created on an ivory lace table cover.

This marvelous tabletop and backdrop were created by the three talented women seen here. They are Susin Silawa from  The Harmony CollectionTAPSNAP, Rachael Love Wietecha is the Vice President of Programs for the NACE Detroit Chapter and the Meetings & Events Manager at Ford Direct and Amanda Adou of The Harmony Collection.

Harmony Collection—Luxury Paper Flower Backdrops

French Themed PartyThe three-dimensional backdrop featured magnificent luxury paper blooms over a curtain of blue lace. Every inch of the background had floral details that remind us of the magical ambiance of the gardens of Paris.
