Fun + Functional Party Favors both Kids and Parents Will Love

These cutie melamine cups work double duty at your party: they act as tablescape decor as party place settings for the kiddos, and they’re also an adorable favor for all your little guests to take home and enjoy for years to come!

I love using decor items that serve multiple uses even after the party is over. They give you the most bang for your buck. These cups are made out of durable melamine and are nearly impossible to break (perfect for life with little ones)! They come in so many different patterns, prints and colors that you’re sure to find one that works for your party, no matter what your theme is.

It’s a snap to turn these adorable table settings into party favors! Coordinate the materials with your party theme colors.

Here’s what you’ll need:




Creating this tablescape decor is easier than wrapping birthday presents! First, select the melamine cup that best coordinates with your party theme. Write the guests’ names on the party favor name tags.

Next, thread the baker’s twine into the name tag, then wrap the twine around the cup and tie a knot. Secure it with washi tape. If you want extra hold, secure the twine with masking tape and cover the masking tape with cute washi tape in the same size. You could even get washi tape to match your party theme (so fun)! Voila!  


If you are having a sit-down gathering with place settings for each little guest, use these cups on your tablescape. If not, you can display these cutie cups on a table near the exit so guests know to take them home as favors. You can also pop these cups inside our favor box and wrap it up with baker's twine. Such a cute, easy and functional party favor!


Extra Style Tip: Take these cutie party favors up a notch by adding a small perennial plant to the cups! These blooming party favors are an adorable sendoff after a garden, farmers market or butterfly themed party. Be sure to let your guests know they can plant the flower at home, and they can pop the cup in the dishwasher for everyday use! (Yep, these durable cups are even dishwasher safe. Could they get any better?!)

Insider Fun: Most of our birthday bundles include a melamine cup option that matches the party theme, along with a matching melamine serving plate that’s so perfect for creating an adorable dessert table!
