How Many Party Bag Fillers go into a Party Bag?

Everyone agrees that no child’s party is complete without a party bag, there is however much debate about how many fillers you should put in it! Much like creating the perfect recipe, the ingredients do not need to be overly complicated, and neither should there be too many, so what exactly is the perfect mix? What makes the perfect party favour for your guests to take home with happy memories of a perfect day. A balloon, a small toy and a piece of cake can prove popular, especially with younger guests. We believe that anything between 2 – 5 items, with a slice of cake, is ideal. Obviously in the eyes of the beholder, you can never have too many!

Quality not quantity

One important thing to remember when creating your bags is that you don’t have to overfill them. The options available to you are endless, and consequently, they can become overwhelming, with this comes a temptation to add lots of bits. You have a choice of filling them to the top with items that invariably don’t get played with or adding a couple of nicer well-considered fillers. At All About Party Bags our experience tells us that less is more, and quality fillers win over quantity. One or two quality fillers are far less likely to end up lost or broken on the car floor. Consider a toy, game, or activity, add some bubbles, tattoos or stickers and a small bag of sweets to create the perfect party favour. Alternatively, select one more substantial item that will stand the test of time and can be used again and again; a book is a fantastic option that works for any party theme.

If you are still unsure what to put into your bags don’t worry, that’s what we are here for. Sit back, relax and search through our extensive selection of Party Bag Fillers. All About Party Bags have done the hard work for you, you will find plenty of inspirational ideas on our site.
