A writer's party favor
August 05, 2009
Though some parties may give out personalized favors at the end, this may not be good enough for hosts who love the written word.
Instead, writers who want to show off their mastery at prose may want to incorporate a witty phrase or description of their guests on the parting gift at the end of the evening.
This can including phrases such as, "For the man who incites fear in dogs, may he never be a postman."
It can be a fun way to give each person a unique memento from your party. However, consider doing something like this for a smaller group (unless you are a prolific writer, then have at it), which will make it easier to make each description equal in quality.
Be sure the quote or description is short - capping it at approximately 15 words may be a good idea (shorter if you tend to use 25 cent words).
Finally, wrap up the favors in either a colorful box or bag and be sure you give the right favor to the right person. No one likes to be described as someone they are not.
