Party Panache, EZ Party Favors and Prizes

The party favors and prizes for last weekend’s Cook Your App Off! party went together easily with just a little shopping


I hit Olde Time Pottery, World Market and the Grocery Store looking for all things orange


I got a ceramic lattice square planter, a chef wine bottle holder and an orange colander to use as containers for kitchen items, clockwise from left:  scoop, orange slice notepad, cookie cleaver, knife, pumpkin scoop, dish towels, an Alabama Margarita in a jar, mini rolling pins and wooden spoons

I decided to jazz the spoon handles up a little with paint.  I put masking tape on 2 for stripes and painted the other 2 solid orange and added white dots

chef's basket

#1 prize was the ceramic planter and the Margarita, lined with colorful orange kitchen towels, scoop, knife, pumpkin scoop, rolling pin, wooden spoons, note pad and papaya hard candies


#2 was the chef wine bottle holder with a premixed Mimosa in a bottle from World Market

Prize #3 was packed in an orange colander

cook's prize

A set of dish towels, cans of mimosas, a dotted spoon and a cookie cleaver, an orange slice note pad, a clip, and a mini rolling pin

cooking prizes

These basket gifts were gender neutral, and full of fun things for any kitchen.  They were ready to be presented and did double duty as party decor


When we discovered there was a tie for third place, we quickly wrapped another Alabama Rita with a burlap bow and 2 straws


Since the guests do all the cooking, the least we can do is send them home with a prize and/or a party favor

We didn’t even bake this mix, just the shop, dump and pack method

    What can I say? I’m imagining shopping for all things orange and wondering what I would fine. Putting the prizes together had to be such fun and the recipients had to get a big kick out of them.
